This show is great for young and old alike. Good magic, and illusions. Jan meets the audience after the show for autographs and try's to sell his boxed magic tricks. The one bad is the Riviera Hotel is old and outdated. Overall, a good show at a fair price.

Jan Rouven is a good illusionist. His crew is good and they work hard to put on a decent show. The tricks were interesting if not unique. Working with the audience was a plus point. In fact one candidate from the audience was picked by me and she was put through a trick that sort of read her mind about... More

Got $29/tickets via travelzoo. Made the trek to ghetto riviera. Theater is small and narrow. Had GA seats, it was just fine but they're just seats, not stadium style. Jan talked a bit too much and tried to tell too many jokes for me. Also there was too much dancing for me. The actual illusions he performed were really good.... More

Show has the worst venue ever...The Riviera. You absolutely cannot see the show. I moved a chair into the aisle. The magic was cool. The dancers added to show are Horrible and unnecessary.

The German magician, Jan Rouven, was an amazing performance. His show is a must see for Las Vegas entertainment!

Jan's show is absolutely fantastic. High energy throughout the entire performance. Kept captivated the entire show. Illusions were all amazing, and never felt bored. The theatre is small, however, this was a positive. Sat in the VIP section, and was only a few feet away from the stage. Wouldn't be able to sit any closer in a larger venue. I... More

Jan has a good personality and great interaction with the audience. The illusions were executed well but when you have to pay so much to see a show you would expect to actually be able to see the stage. Even if we only had the general admissions ticket, they are not cheap. We were a bit late and showed to... More

I have seen a lot of magic shows and his was okay. Would have been better if he had focused more on his his tricks rather than comparing himself to Chris Angel, time and again. This was my parents first magic show and they enjoyed. Poor location though.

Purchased tickets from travelzoo. This was an amazing show despite the horrendous location at the riviera...we purchased VIP tickets and got front row seats...when purchasing tickets beware that they are not assigned seats only assigned sections....we lucked out and got front row seats
