Magic with a bite, you should enjoy crude humor and a fun atmosphere if you decide to buy tickets to Penn and Teller. I like the show but I have had plenty of conversations with people who just do not get it. This is a very entertaining show that is worth the admission price.

2. Nathan Burton Comedy Magic

Nathan Burton does a good job of entertaining and the truth is you probably cannot find another magician on the strip that gives you as much for the price of a ticket. This show is a good deal and you most likely will be entertained.

3. Mac King - Comedy and Magic for the Family

The best afternoon show in Las Vegas. Worth the money for good, clean fun. You will have a great time and be entertained at the same time.

4. The Mentalist at Planet Hollywood

The mixture of comedy, magic and mental manipulation keeps the audience on their toes, wondering if they'll be the subject of McCambridge's next trick. Is "mentalism" for real? By the end of the evening, you may just be convinced.

5. Dirk Arthur

It's not just magic - it's Xtreme Magic. And that involves illusions, women, rock music, fake smoke and cats. Yes, cats. Big ones. It's the largest display of some of the most exotic cats in the world, or so the show's announcer boasts at the beginning of the act.

6. Criss Angel at Luxor

Chris Angel is doing his show with a Cirque Du Soliel angle at the Luxor. If you are a fan of his work you should thoroughly enjoy this show. I can't say I am impressed mainly because for my taste he takes himself way too seriously. However, some Las Vegas visitors truly love his act.
