My son and I saw Armondo before the Nathan Burton show. WOW. Armondo is fun, funny, and an amazing magician in "the purest sense". Sure, there's a place for the extravagant props, pyro, lights, assistants, etc. but Armondo amazes his audience with real, sleight-of-hand, mind-blowing magic. It's the only show of its type in Vegas and we think it's certainly worth going to.

You'll especially enjoy his humor and audience participation/interaction. Don't miss his show!

I recently took my father to Las Vegas for his 79th birthday. He has been a life-long amateur magician and I wanted to make sure we saw some of the magic acts while there. Scanning the internet, I found several big name magic acts and then I saw something about Nathan Burton's Comedy Magic show. It was an afternoon show and much cheaper then many of the other shows so I was skeptical. However, I saw something about Armando Vera's "Close-Up" VIP show and knew immediately that was the show for us...although I was still skeptical especially given the low price!

On the day of the show, I received a call on my cell phone from an unknown number and the caller left a message. I picked up the message and it was someone from the production company calling to confirm that our tickets were waiting at the Box Office and reminding us of the special start time of 3:00pm for the VIP show. We arrived around 2:30pm (take note, the theater is NOT in Planet Hollywood proper - it's in the mall built into Planet Hollywood) and were greeted by a very nice lady at the box office. At 2:50, we were escorted in and each group of audience members had their picture taken.

3:00pm sharp, the show began and what you will read here on the reviews will tell you everything you need to know. The best description is from "KDP21" who said "I felt like I was best friends with Armando by the time I left his show." That is truly a GREAT description!!! He is very friendly and takes the time to talk to everyone in the audience before beginning his show. His close-up magic was flawless and despite the fact that after many years of watching my father do these same tricks, I thoroughly enjoyed watching a master perform them. He was terrific and the audience was "WOW'd".

The show is perfect for kids - and everyone else for that matter!

As a side note, Nathan Burton's show that followed was also excellent! It truly is what a magic show should be - non-stop tricks that are well done and performed by someone with a great personality. Nathan has many of his family working with him including that nice lady we were greeted by at the box office.....his mom.

Finally, while I loved BOTH shows, the real question is what did my 79 year old magic performing father think? He gave them both two big thumbs up!

If you are in Vegas, you don't want to miss this show!!

I have an eleven and ten year old so Vegas can be somewhat limited in shows available that are age appropriate but especially when it comes to quality. Armando's show is an incredible bargain but even if it were not so well priced, the quality of the show warrants greater expense. Often you hear fans of musicians talk about the lost wonder of their idols once fame has taken root and how they lament when so-and-so played intimate venues and engaged the audience. Well, that's here and now. Not Copperfield which is why you are there.

If you enjoy magic immensely or seeking to just to get the kids involved in a show experience, you will be rewarded above your expectations. Enjoy it while you can as I gladly recommend him to all.

Enjoy.

On our recent trip to Las Vegas, we saw four shows. Our 14 year old daughter ranked Armando Vera's close-up magic as her top choice, ahead of David Copperfield, Mystere, and Jersey Boys. Armando's show was the VIP preshow which was part of Nathan Burton's Magic Show. She also got picked to be Armando's helper during one of the tricks (along with an 8 year old boy), which was truly icing on the cake. We highly recommend Armando Vera Magic! Up until now, our daughter's favorite show in Vegas was the Blue Man Group. Now, she says Armado Vera is her #1 choice and she would see it again and again. By far, it's the best family show in Vegas!

Armando is the first act of a double bill with fellow magician Nathan Burton. What Armando does is an impressive display of close up magic with playing cards, coins, sponge balls, and a very clever take on the classic magic staple, The Cups and Balls. He performs all this while constantly interacting with his audience in a very pleasant and laid back approach. For anyone interested in magic, you should not miss this experience, and considering the price of a ticket gets you admission to Nathan Burton's show, an afternoon of magic can easily be afforded to any family.
