“Not bad, Not wonderful either”
Reviewed April 1, 2009

Someone on the street handed us two tickets that were free with the purchase of a drink. We went to the 1:00 show. It was okay, but nothing particularly memorable. There is a reason why he isn't doing a show at night, it just wouldn't sell that many seats. Seating was horrible, little chairs crammed together in a row on the floor. My husband asked if we could upgrade our seats and we kindly told we could sit in a booth for free. I felt sorry for those still sitting on the floor. The drink that we got was fabulous I must say. Some kind of pina-colada-super yummy! If you have time to kill, I would recommend but I wouldn't make a special effort just to see him.

“Deal me in!”
Reviewed February 10, 2009

One of the best deals in Vegas. Mac King is funny and a bit bizarre. Some material is almost blue, but kids over 10 would probably enjoy the show. The blue jokes will go over their heads anyway.
2 for 1 tickets are all over the casino and they include a free drink. So basically got a show and cocktail for $13. Can't beat that with a stick....especially in Vegas.

“Mac King, A Fun Afternoon”
Reviewed February 2, 2009

Mac King has a funny and entertaining show. He has a bunch of "neat" tricks mixed in with a few "wow, how did he do that" tricks. The $13 price is well worth the admission and drink. See this show, laugh a little and enjoy your afternoon!

Also, Mac King uses audience volunteers (a woman, a child, a newlywed couple, and then a man). He also, visits with the audience after the show and will sign photos, books, shirts, and other gifts available at his gift stand.

“Not very good ...”
Reviewed January 31, 2009

Was in Vegas the week of 1/25/09. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't good either. We had coupons for free admission (but you had to buy one $10 drink) and we wished we had skipped this show.

“Not as great as reviews would make you believe”
Reviewed January 27, 2009

The "free" tickets can be gotten from the casino frequent gambling area. They require about a $14/pp charge which gets you admission and a watered down drink. Still cheaper than any show I can find.

I laughed several times and found some of the magic tricks impressive. But, since the pacing was a bit slow, I also found myself with time to understand how he did a trick which took away from some of the pleasure.

The 3P show was not full but the ushers seat you very strangely giving people at the front of the line off center seats and never fill the center seats off the center aisle.

A good show and harmless fun but not a hilariously funny show as some have wrote.
