The Mac King Comedy Magic Show celebrated its 13th Anniversary on May 11th at Harrah’s to a packed house. As always it was a very funny, magical, family friendly show. Mac King is up close and personal and does many sleight of hand tricks right before your very eyes and you can’t figure out how he does them. Take for instance the money trick. A gentleman from the audience gives Mac a $100.00 bill and Mac burns it up and you know the routine, the money miraculously appears later on.

I liked it when Mac King went into the audience and brought Lake Baker onto the stage. It was Lake’s 11th birthday and Lake was there celebrating with his parents, his brother and four of his best friends. Lake’s birthday present was being picked up in a stretch limo, having lunch at Serendipity and buying VIP tickets to the show. It was a dream come true for Lake to be on the stage with Mac and he was a star for a few minutes.
Mac King has mastered the ropes and the playing cards and there were plenty of fig newton’s during the entire performance. I loved how the gold fish and the hamsters are part of the magic show and no harm came to the animals. His cloak of invisibility was almost believable. I loved how the show had humor for the adults along with the children’s entertainment. I sat in the front row and laughed through the entire show. I highly recommend this as a family show.

The show has won many of the Best of Las Vegas Awards, Best Bargain Show, Best Magician, Favorite Magician, Favorite Male Las Vegan and Best Las Vegas Family Attraction to name a few. A party was held after the show and Christian Stuart, Harrah’s Regional Vice President and Assistant General Manager presented Mac King a proclamation from Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman naming May 11, 2013 Mac King 13th Anniversary Day in Las Vegas. Mac Kings daughter Elizabeth presented him with 13 roses for his 13th anniversary

Many of his friends, family, fans and celebrity pals were there to celebrate and share in the festivities and eat the fabulous goldfish cake.

Mac said he was thankful for all the years at Harrah’s and for all the great friends who support his comedy and the show.

Upon meeting her you will see the twinkle in her eyes, see a huge smile, get a firm hug, hear a sincere greeting and you will instantly know that you are meeting someone special, but you won’t know why, at the moment but you will know later on. That is how I felt when I first met Kimberly, but as I got to know her, I knew why. Kimberly is a special lady and behind every good woman is her man.
