Best Las Vegas magic shows 2021-2022

Here is list of the best Las Vegas magic shows playing in 2021-2022. What's Vegas without magic? There are plenty of amazing magicians in the city working in this genre. Illusions and tricks have become the essential part of the city, and the world's top magicians call Vegas their home! You've heard of course the names of David Copperfield, Criss Angel, Penn & Teller? These are top illusionists who live and perform right here!

David Copperfield

David Copperfield show Las Vegas

Location: Hollywood Theater - MGM Grand

Show Times: Nightly at 7:00 PM and 9:30 pm, on Saturdays - additional show at 4:00 pm

Age limit: 5+

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 Las Vegas magic shows, 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

Penn and Teller  show Las Vegas

Location: Penn & Teller Theater - Rio Hotel

Show Times: Saturday-Wednesday at 9:00 pm

Age limit: 5+

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 Las Vegas magic shows 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.

Mac King Comedy Magic

Show Times: Tuesday-Saturday at 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm

Location: The Theater at Harrah's

Age limit: 5+

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 Las Vegas magic shows. 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.

Review: Mike Hammer is one of the funniest illusions, and his magic downtown show draws crowds. Mike Hammer is so hilarious, friendly and talented that I hope he soon will move to the Strip. His Las Vegas 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!
