Not mentalism, but make it a point to see Mac King at Harrah's. You won't regret it. Guaranteed.

Copperfield's show is excellent at the MGM. Many of the audience involvement effects were developed by B Smith and Chris Kenner. Super show.

I enjoyed Volcano Eruption at Mirage! I was also at Gerry McCambridge's mentalism show, not bad, but not great either. Effects probably won't fool you, but his style is entertaining. Enjoy!

Thanks all. I forgot all about Mac, and that's the second recommendation I have received to see Gerry. My wife was glancing at the Copperfield show just the other day. So many things to do in four days!

Just came back from Vegas - Copperfield was brilliant as always (seen him twice there now) but mentalism you got Gerry but didn't manage to see him - although would be very interested in seeing his performance

As mentioned earlier, Copperfield's act at MGM is first-rate and well worth seeing. My family and I attended in March 2012. Very enjoyable.

Copperfield it's a must, even though not at his best, and quite short.

I disagree.

It was a normal length if show and his work seems to have improved over the years with far more audience involvement in a smaller more intimate venue.

I've seen his touring show many times over the years and it was a bigger show with more illusions but also less intimate.

Copperfield is a must see.

Gerry was just fair IMO.

Good to support a mentalist though.

Exactly. I grew up watching him making disappears planes and giant statues. Smile

Yes. Copperfield is a MUST SEE... I was hoping to see the guy that inspired the mentalist show, but didn't have a day off... Smile

Mac King is awesome and tickets are very cheap. He does an afternoon show.

So check him out during the day and you still have your night free.

Mac King is my #1 Vegas recommendation always. You know it's good when your face hurts from smiling.

My last time in Vegas I saw Gerry McCambridge, P&T and Copperfield but the thing that inspired me the most was watching Paul Vigil in a parlor setting. Everything he did appeared effortless and he just exuded confidence and class. First rate performance all around. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think he's still performing public shows, or is he?

I would put Mac King #1 on my list. Copperfield...ho hum.

Don't miss Mac. Funniest and funnest show by far.

Mac is great. Pay the extra for the better seats if given an option of 2 prices. It is a very small difference, and I wound up 2nd row, center.

I had seen Copperfield 8 times in my life, but not at al in the past 10 years. I decided to see him in Vegas, and he had a fair amount of new material. I enjoyed the show quite a bit.

Penn & Teller also deliver a helluva performance.

All three of these shows can be seen by purchasing discounted tickets on the day of the show at Tix 4 Tonight.
