Lucha VaVOOM isn’t just a Mexican wrestling show—it’s a devilish circus straight out of sin and fantasy showcasing acrobatics, pyrotechnics, nudity and midgets. Lucha VaVOOM performs at the historic Mayan Theater about twice every other month. Though the violence is staged, the fight moves are nothing short of spectacular. Think WWE, but with much more complicated choreography and higher aerials. Guest comedians like Fred Armisen and Drew Carey often give running commentary. In between matches, a light show and jamming tunes serve as the backdrop to some of the most unique acts ever seen: a Geisha-style dancer doing a slow strip to “God Save the Queen,” or a midget in a blue monkey suit flying out of the ring and straight into an audience member’s lap. If you’ve got a predilection for the strange and the titillating, welcome to your new home. There are plenty of opportunities to imbibe as canned beer and liquor are sold throughout.
