Actor Channing Tatum (“Magic Mike,” “Foxcatcher,” “21 Jump Street”) attended the 10 p.m. Friday performance of “Absinthe” in the Spiegelworld tent outside Caesars Palace.

After the zany and erotic adult show, which recently celebrated its fourth anniversary, the hunky Tatum, a sharp dressed man in a newsboy cap, dress shirt, vest and slacks, met with The Gazillionaire, his assistant Joy Jenkins and the “Green Fairy” Melody Sweets for photographs and to express his enjoyment of the show.

Tatum’s “Magic Mike” sequel “Magic Mike XXL” arrives in theaters July 1, and the second sequel to “21 Jump Street,” creatively titled “23 Jump Street,” has been green-lighted.

Also at “Absinthe” on Friday night: Willie Garson (“Sex and the City”), Camryn Manheim (“Person of Interest), Kevin McHale (“Glee”) and Melissa Peterman (“Reba”). The group was in town for the Poker for Hope fundraising tournament at Planet Hollywood over the weekend.

They took a photograph with “Absinthe” cast members The Gazillionaire, Jenkins, Sweets, Ming and Alexa, Duo Fevrier, Lea Hinz and Fat Frank of The Frat Pack.
