Magic shows have always been hugely popular for visitors to Las Vegas. Not only do they provide some mystery, but a lot of the time, magicians combine illusions and tricks with comedy for an extremely entertaining show.
Best magic shows in Las Vegas
If you’re looking for the biggest names in magic, then Las Vegas can provide them for you: Penn & Teller, known for their outrageous humour, have been performing together for over twenty-one years, with shows containing plenty of laughs from the ‘bad boys of magic’ along with spectacles like knife-throwing and fire-eating. They perform most days at the Rio at 9pm.
David Copperfield magic show
David Copperfield is one of the greatest illusionists. So when you are in Las Vegas then don’t miss Copperfield’s show. He performs his unmatched and unparalleled magic show at MGM Grand David Copperfield Theater.
Criss Angel magic show
Criss Angel is just as well-known thanks to his TV show Mindfreak, but his act is celebrated for the way that it captivates audiences with a futuristic set featuring virtual worlds and laser explosions, alongside a range of different sorts of magic and illusions. Ninety minutes long, this show takes place at the Planet Hollywood.
If you want a family-friendly show that your kids will love, Masters of Illusion might just be perfect for you. One of the biggest magical touring companies, they have taken up residence at the Jubilee Theater at Bally’s, with a show full of laugh out loud jokes, interactive mind magic, and illusions including incredible feats of escapology.
The Magic Dragon show
Another absolutely hilarious show is Piff The Magic Dragon, which features Mr Piffles, The World’s Only Magic Performing Chihuahua’. An hour of madcap comedy and magic that takes place at Bugsy’s Cabaret at the Flamingo, you’ll be aching with laughter by the end.
Finally, if you’re looking for a little more diversity in your magic, why not try out Ilusión Mental? Performed entirely in Spanish in the same venue as Xavier Mortimer, it stars the dashingly elegant Santiago Michel, who has toured the world with this show to create elegant illusions and hypnotism that are ideal for the Vegas stage.
