Well, actually we wanted to see David Copperfield that night but the shows were sold out so we decided to go to Jan Rouven's show Illusions. We were very surprised about the great show he did. It's really worth to recommend it to otheres!

Illusions are really good. Jan is very entertaining and he makes sure his audience is actively involved in the show. Here is the secret: if you buy cheap tickets (in the very back rows) - better watch the show on YouTube, otherwise you will be writing negative opinion on TA focusing on the venue rather than the show... Sitting in... More

My hubby and I saw this show in the fall of '12. We enjoyed our time. It didn't blow us away, but it was enjoyable—some elements are better than others, but that's probably true with most magic/illusionist shows. The Riviera is run down, yes, but if you take the time to look at the photos on the wall, you will... More

Jan Rouven is not only a magician. he is an entertainer and an amazing person. He is someone you may have not heard a lot of about as he is originally from germany. i don't know where to begin in telling you that this is a must see show and worth every penny. IT is at the riviera hotel. It... More

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 The one bad is the Riviera Hotel is old and outdated.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!
