Christopher, the creator of ‘The Dancing Queen’ persona, has just moved to Vegas with his quirky and comical act, which features one-man puppet dances representing different pop culture icons. In the past, Christopher has performed as everything from the Jackson 5 to Alice in Wonderland’s Red Queen, and now he has tackled the king of rock and roll Elvis Presley.

This number consists of Christopher dressed in a life-sized, ventriloquist dummy-esque puppet costume that resembles Elvis Presley, down to the greased hair swirl and the white-rimmed glasses. Attached to this costume by four black bars are two other life-sized puppets, representing Elvis’s female backup dancers and singers. Christopher has rigged these puppets in such a way that his dance moves trigger movements in the other puppets, resulting in a highly choreographed dance number to the famous tune ‘Viva Las Vegas.’

This hilarious act is definitely Vegas-ready. Its fun and vibrant costumes, professional caliber and pop culture references are sure to impress every Vegas audience member that passes by.
