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.
You may have seen that The LINQ and Flamingo now have rooms with bunk beds. They advertise them as “perfect for a family, a large group of friends, or hosting a fun get-together “.
You need to check the fine print before you start making calls and planning that party weekend in Vegas, though. Those rooms are still listed with a maximum occupancy of 4 people. That includes kids. They also have an extra $30 per-person charge for more than 2 people. Those limitations and fees are normal for a regular room, but seem counter to the point of having a bunk bed room. Here are screen grabs for the same room on the same dates. One with only 2 people listed and one with 4.
UPDATE: Due to COVID-19 precautions, all shows are currently cancelled. I will revise the page again once shows open, but that may not be until 2021.
