CardFan,

I live in Las Vegas, and can tell you there are quite a few acts to check out. There's Murray Sawchuck (from America's Got Talent), Mat Franco (also from AGT), Jan Rouven, Mac King, Dirk Arthur, I believe Jason Byrne still performs with V: The Ultimate Variety Show, and a few other smaller shows around town. Disclaimer: I haven't seen any of these shows, so I can't vouch for anyone, but I'm sure you can determine what might be worth checking out. I hope this helps, and I hope you enjoy Sin City!

Cheers,

Mike

Thank you Mie for your answer. I am going to check on the net for these guys.
Could you also advise me a magic shop worth driving to in town ?
Cheers.

Not problem friend!

There are a handful of Houdini's magic shops in various hotels on the Strip, but those are catered toward tourists. I wouldn't recommend them unless you needed to pick up an emergency TT or lost copy of Tarbell lol

For the discerning pro, we have Denny & Lee magic shop. It's a direct satellite of the original Denny & Lee in Baltimore.

5115 Dean Martin Dr #102, Las Vegas, NV 89118
Phone:(702) 936-0066

They are just on the other side of the I-15 freeway behind the Strip. This is where you would want to go! It's where are all the pros shop locally, as well as where our local IBM Ring (257) holds their meetings.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask!

I have not, but I hear it's excellent. I'd say go for it! One last one I forgot to mention is Nathan Burton. He's also here on the Strip.

I have seen Penn & Teller, Mac King, and Mat Franco. All are highly recommended. I know this is a couple months past the last post but hope this helps.

CardFan, when your trip is over, I hope you post about your Vegas experience. I'm curious as to which shows you ended up seeing, as well as how you liked them. My two favorite shows there are P&T and Mac King. You can't go wrong seeing those two shows. Many of the others listed above are also fun shows to watch.
