Jan Rouven: Illusions
Location: Starlite Theatre - Riviera Hotel & Casino
Schedule: Almost Nightly at 7:00 pm
Age limit: 5+
Ticket Prices: from $54.90
Review: Jan Rouven is Vegas' hottest import and his Illusions is quickly becoming one of the most popular, best rated magic shows! The young illusionist from Germany has joined the ranks of Las Vegas magicians only recently, and has conquered the hearts of kids and adults alike, and deserved excellent reviews from his fans. Among all magic shows in Las Vegas, Rouven's are the most "dangerous" - in most of his illusions he seems to escape death at the last moment. The show includes such acts as the Bed of Death with swords falling on the cuffed magician, and the Water Tank, that he escapes from switching places with his assistant. All of that, plus a charming smile and natural charisma of Jan Rouven make the show an unforgettable experience!
Location: Hollywood Theater - MGM Grand
Schedule: Nightly at 7:00 PM and 9:30 pm
Age limit: 5+
Ticket Prices: from $85.12
Review: One thing remains true about David Copperfield: He is one of the best magicians in the world, and his show is among of the best magic shows in Las Vegas that you should see at least once in your life. At this show you can see some of the most impressive illusions with disappearance and appearance. While it's impossible to show on stage some of the illusions he is famous for, you will be treated to a video of Copperfield defying the currents of the Niagara Falls, or making the Statue of Liberty disappear. This is the part that people often complain about - show us the magic, not what you have done before! But after all, he HAS done it, what's not to brag about? Besides it would be hard to get the Statue of Liberty on the stage even for him! Otherwise, the show is pure fun, the magic is amazing and keeps you wondering how on Earth did he do it? So if you can forgive (or enjoy!) this little video showing the glorious days of David Copperfield, you are in for a real treat! Apart from being the most famous magician in the world, Copperfield has a great sense of humor and will keep your whole family entertained.

Penn and Teller
Location: Penn & Teller Theater - Rio Hotel
Schedule: Saturday-Wednesday at 9:00 pm
Age limit: 5+
Ticket Prices: from $54.40
Review: Penn and Teller are popular Las Vegas magicians who have a reputation of great entertainers, albeit a little bit political. (Interested in political magic shows, anyone? ). What they do that sets them apart from other magic shows in Las Vegas is that they explain some of the tricks to the audience...and manage to stun us nevertheless! They actually show you how the trick is done, and ask you to watch closely, but they do it so you likely won't notice the magical "moment" when a penny turns into a goldfish... Heads up: if you want to try and see how they do the trick, get seats closer to the stage.
Criss Angel Believe
Location: Luxor Theater - Luxor Hotel
Schedule: Almost Nightly at 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm
Age limit: 5+
Review: Criss Angel is an illusionist famous worldwide, and must-see magic shows in Las Vegas. While it's marketed as Cirque du Soleil show, it has little to do with Cirque, but a lot to do with magic and illusions. Criss Angel has a great charisma, and talks to the audience a lot during his show. His illusions are really impressive, the show is dynamic and entertaining. If you ignore the negative reviews and go to the show with an open heart, you will be wonderfully surprised .
Location: Four Queens Hotel and Casino - downtown
Schedule: Tuesday - Saturday at 7:00 pm
Age limit: 5+
Ticket Prices: from $23.00
Review: Mike Hammer is one of the funniest illusions, and his magic show in downtown Las Vegas draws crowds. Mike Hammer is so hilarious, friendly and talented that I hope he soon will move to the Strip. His magic show with a lot of comic acts is a true delight and is loved by kids and adults alike - he can do it all from handcuff escape to "stealing" your stuff and hearts! What we love most about Hammer is that he is so down to Earth and loves to pose for pictures!

That's incredible how all magic shows in Las Vegas each have a unique twist on magic tricks - and the young magician Tommy Wind is no exception. He offers a truely unique show at the new Boulevard Theater - a magic show with elements of martial arts, music, comedy and mentalism. Tommy's love for music is permeating - many of his magic tricks involve musical instruments, plus he demonstrates his talent playing many of them. The show is perfect for kids, and adults. And, hint for the ladies - he is quite easy on the eyes, too!
Nathan Burton's Comedy Magic

Review: If you are in the mood for a highly entertaining evening with elements of a comedy club, beautiful showgirls and magic, then magician Nathan Burton is your guy! Nathan Burton has a great sense of humor (clean for kids' ears), a boyish enthusiasm and an unmatched ability for Las Vegas illusionists to make the audience laugh and has for assistants some of the prettiest girls in town. We can safely say that Nathan Burton's spectacle is one of the funniest magic shows in Las Vegas in 2014!
Mac King Comedy Magic
Dates & Time: Tuesday-Saturday at 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm
Location: The Theater at Harrah's
Age limit: 5+
Ticket Prices: from $38.45
Review: Wearing a plaid retro suit, unflattering hairdo and armed with apologetic self-deprecating humor, Mac King may pass for a goofy nerd and not for what he is - one of the best illusion craftsmen of our time! Mac King's is perhaps the most hilarious of all magic shows in Las Vegas. His tricks are based strictly on a sleight of hand, and he has an unmatched sense of humor. His jokes are hilarious, up to date and quite white, considering he runs an afternoon show and kids make up a large part of the audience. However do not mistake this for a strictly kids show - some of his jokes are clearly intended for adults, but masked enough for little ones to not understand them.
Laughternoon With Adam London
Dates & Time: Every day at 4:00 pm
Location: Showroom at The D Hotel

Ticket Prices: from $24.90
Adam London is among the newest Las Vegas magicians, and his Laughternoon is a popular magic show for kids. The magician has already carved himself a unique niche - a family-friendly hilarious comedy show with cute magic tricks based on sleight of hand. Adam London is not shy to demonstrate his penchant towards ducks - starting from his cute tie to his hilarious magic tricks. His Laughternoon magic show in Las Vegas is great for kids and adults looking to spend an hour laughing their heads off.

If you are looking for funny magic shows in Las Vegas, Murray - Celebrity Magician's show is worth checking out. Murray is performing at the Laugh Factory at Tropicana. The venue is primarily occupied by stand up comedians, and if you love comedy you won't be disappointed here too because Murray apparently is a very talented comedian as well as a magician. While most magicians employ beautiful girls as their assistants, Murray's sidekick is a clumsy guy named Lefty, wearing grey overalls. Murray's range includes great stage appearance, comic talent, sleight-of-hand magic tricks, and even large-scale illusions of appearances and disappearances. He actually made a Ferrari appear out of nowhere in Vegas, and made a train disappear on America's Got Talent. His magic shows in Las Vegas are quite family friendly, with a few adult jokes that most of the kids will miss.
