I couldn't locate the right forum for this, so forgive me if this is way off: my wife and I are going to be in Las Vegas June 14, 15. I'm trying to find some good close-up magic shows for us to check out. We'll probably see a Lance Burton-type flashy show, but I'm more interested in the less publicized, but not less dazzling close-up magic shows. Any ideas on where to look online? Any good holes-in-the-wall that a Vegas brochure might not advertise?

Now , Paul, that is what I call an extensive list! See Mac King by all means! Best show for the money in Las Vegas, but while most of the rest are excellent magicians, and good shows, if there is a master class or any class going on at Jeff Mc Bride's school the time ur there, spend the price of a few show tickets and go there! Eugene Burger is a tremendous close-up magician and teacher, and Johnny Thompson generally drops in and he is also another great close-up magician and teacher. Jeff's school is worth a trip to vegas for any day. Especially if you want good instruction in close-up. The shows in Las Vegas tend toward stage shows with a few parlor/caberet size shows (Mac King falls into that category). Mac does a lot of "hand" magic, so someone interested in close-up will love his show (and never eat a fig newton again). Dixie Dooley is an escape artist, and Jonathan is indeed amazing, and does a good amount of hand type magic as well, though he does a bit more bizare comedy magic. (sort of a one man Penn and Teller on speed).
"Now here's the man with the 25 cent hands, that two bit magician..."

Just got back from Vegas...I saw Mac King. He was fantastic. He had the crowd roaring the whole time. It's the best afternoon show in Vegas.

A few quick noticeable corrections to Paul Greens massive posting list.

Rick Thomas is now closed at the Orleans.

Nathon Burton also has a 12 noon show as well as the 2 pm show Sat.- Thurs. Friday at 4 and 6 pm.

We are dark at the Worlds Greatest Magic Show Sept 4 - 21st. Kevin James and Billy Ferguson no longer work at the show. The lineup still rotates with Joseph Gabriel doing illusions, Dan Sperry doves, Katalin, Kozak, Losander and Roy Shank starting the 22nd.

Kevin is currently in Spain and Portugal. You can check his website for his upcoming schedule.
