“Take it off!” And with those three words, the new male stripper revue “Men: The Experience” was off and running — and taking it off — at the Riviera on a recent Sunday evening.

Handsome and ripped creator, MC, choreographer and dancer A.J. — unsurprisingly, all of the entertainers have six-pack abs — and his troupe started the night with a routine to Robin Thicke’s “Give It 2 U.”

“Men: The Experience” also includes opportunities for the ladies to go onstage and get up close and personal, the men interacting with the audience throughout the showroom and fantasies involving 007 James Bond, cowboys, firefighters, the military, mobsters, a tribute to Channing Tatum and “Magic Mike” and even “The Phantom of the Opera.”

The music of the “Men: The Experience” night includes Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl,” Adele’s “Skyfall,” Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive,” Usher’s “Scream” and Vanilla Ice’s “Ice, Ice Baby.”

At this show, the ladies went wild for A.J., Julian, Caleb and especially Alejandro, who looks like a cross between Nick Jonas and Taylor Lautner.

Now that’s a male experience.

“Men: The Experience” takes the stage at the Riviera at 7 p.m. seven days a week.
