One of the best entertainment values in Vegas, this is an afternoon comedy-magic show -- and note the order of precedence in that introduction. King does magic, thankfully, emphasizing the only kind that's really mind-blowing these days -- those close-up tricks that defy your eyes and mind. But he surrounds his tricks with whimsy and wit, and sometimes gut-busting guffaws, which all serve to make you wonder how someone else can still perform stunts with a straight face. Check out how he takes a $100 bill and -- wait, we don't want to give it away, but suffice it to say it involves an old shoe, a Fig Newton, and several other unexpected props. Perfect for the kids, perfect for the budget, perfect timing if you need something in the afternoon before an evening of gambling, dining, and cavorting. Then again, we are rather surprised he's still just an afternoon gig. One day, someone is going to wise up and move him to the big time, and his ticket prices will move up, too. So catch him while he's still a bargain. Tuesday through Saturday at 1 and 3pm.
