Mac King at Harrahs

Mac King’s Comedy Magic show makes me really happy. It is a family friendly (very kid oriented, really) magic and comedy show that still has a lot to offer adults.

At its core, the show is a magic show with rope tricks, card tricks, sleight of hand, fire, some magical appearances and disappearances and his signature goldfish tricks. The show is really well written and has some finely crafted humor woven into it. (something you can hone during a show that has been running for almost 20 years). There is also a lot of room for improv during the audience participation segment. (a few for kids and a few for adults).

Don’t let the afternoon time slot (1p and 3p) fool you. This is a high quality show. The afternoon time slot is a reflection of the kid/family friendly focus, not the show quality. It isn’t as flashy and boisterous as Penn & Teller, but it shares a lot of the sensibilities for a much more reasonable price.

Spiegelworld’s Opium Show at Cosmopolitan

Spiegelworld, the company behind Absinthe, has opened a new , campy, space themed show called “Opium” at   the Cosmopolitan. The concept is that we (performers and audience) are on a spaceship traveling from Uranus to Las Vegas.

I really enjoyed the variety of acts.  The show includes live music, a  great hooping act, comedic juggling, a girl in the balloon act, a flashy whip trickster, a really cute balancing act with a chihuahua and a few things that are better kept as surprises.   The segues between acts were very entertaining, too. Those segues create a nice through-line for the show of otherwise random (but still good) acts. Continue reading Spiegelworld’s Opium Show at Cosmopolitan

Zamora the Torture King

NOTE: Performances are now at 9pm Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

It is a little known fact that Zamora the Torture King has a resident show in Las Vegas. If you are not familiar with Zamora (Tim Cridland), he is a pain-proof performer and a sideshow icon. He toured with the Jim Rose Circus in the 90’s and has been featured on Ripley’s Believe It or Not! and Stan Lee’s Superhumans.
