Las Vegas Still Belives in Magic.

With all the nightclubing and day clubbing and bar hopping going on, it’s easy to forget that Las Vegas has the most unique line-up of entertainment in the world.  And that’s not including its big name headliner concerts and impressive array of Cirque du Soleil productions.  The one man (and sexy assistant) magic show is still going strong in sin city with a whole lot of talent to choose from.

Planet Hollywood

Inside of the Saxe theater, Nathan Burton combines all of the elements of old school Vegas to bring to life a fun, burlesque style magic show.  The illusionist’s sense of humor is side splitting, yet clean so the kids are welcome.  It’s that ability to make the audience laugh that makes him stand out, along with the gorgeous feather laden showgirl assistants.  Tickets for Nathan Burke’s Comedy Magic start at $39.99 and you will find him at the Planet almost every day at 4 P.M.  A good way to unwind from the day club before getting ready for the nightclub.

The Boulevard Theater

Tommy Wind has a love for music and blends that in with his magic show to create an experience that is both entertaining and unique.  For a young guy he has learned how to keep the audience glued to their seats early, taking advantage of a martial arts background to keep the show lively while infusing it with his tricks of the mind.  Tommy Wind tickets start at $24 and you can catch him every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 PM.  This is a different approach to getting a start on your weekend in Vegas.

Rio Hotel

Okay, so sometimes its 2 men. Inside of the theater named for them you will find a pair of the wackiest magicians on the planet.  Penn and Teller are so different that they will even show you how the trick is done, and then fool you again.  This duo has gained world-wide attention with their sarcastic wit and slight of hand magic tricks.  These guys perform their stuff at 9 PM Saturday through Wednesday nights with ticket prices starting at $54.40.  The late start to this show makes it a good starting point for a night of bar hopping.

MGM Grand

You can’t mention magic in Vegas without bringing up the master.  The long standing illusionist David Copperfield has been awing audiences for decades.  You can never get bored watching him saw in half a delightful damsel in distress or pull of one of his famous disappearing acts.  One of the unique elements to the show is a video highlight of some of his better known feats done in locations that simply would not fit inside of the theater.  You know, like that time he made the Statue of Liberty disappear.  It’s a great mix of old and new that is a definite must see if you haven’t already.  Mr. Copperfield appears twice every night at 7 and 9:30 P.M.  His tickets are bit pricey at $85.12, but Vegaster can help you find a deal.
