Mac King holds a comedy magic show at Harrah’s every
afternoon which gives people a chance to enjoy some quirky
jokes and mind blowing magic tricks. He wears a plaid suit
and has a Southern charm that helps set the charm. King’s
first trick is with a rope, he folds and cuts the rope but
the rope doesn’t seem to change its length at all.
As King is doing his trick, he is also telling jokes to make
the audience laugh. The illusions and the jokes make a
perfect blend for the show and it makes it an even better
comedy show with clever magic. At one point during the show
King asks for a female volunteer for a card trick, once the
women is up on stage and is shuffling the deck he will make
a joke such as “You ever do any babysitting? Will you go sit
on that baby?” as he refers to a crying baby in the audience
and makes everyone laugh.
Another part of the show that is clever and puts a sweet
spin on it is Fig Newton’s, when King goes to pull a card
out of his pocket a Fig Newton appears instead. King then
says “It’s time to go camping,” he walks into the audience
to choose a kid around the age of 12 to be his assistant.
Part of their camping excursion is where King asks the kid
to hold a glass of water as he assembles his fishing rod.
The Fig Newton’s appear on stage again but this time they
are used for bait in the fishing sequence, King attaches it
to the fish hook and immediately catches a gold fish out of
mid air. King then uses an original yellow raincoat that
turns into the “Cloak of Invisibility,” he does a humorous
act as if he was floating and makes haunting sounds. Even
though King did not really disappear while wearing the
“magic cloak,” he does make it a great illusion that it does
make him invisible.
The audience members that are chosen for his outrageous
tricks and illusions make the show very exciting and
unpredictable which makes each show different. One of his
tricks or illusions is good for beer fans when King make a
real bottle of Coors Light appear under a handkerchief and
hands it to a male audience member. Mac King first took an
interest into magic as a very young child, throughout high
school and college he practiced on his family and friends.
While he was attending college, King performed in a two
person act with Lance Burton. Humor runs in his family, king
says “Everyone in my family is really funny, humor is a big
deal!” Anyone is bound to love this show and it’s a great
