Piff the Magic Dragon turns up the heat

You may have seen him on America’s Got Talent or Penn & Teller: Fool Us or on tour in your town, but Piff the Magic Dragon has quickly evolved into a Las Vegas Strip favorite. His deliriously fun production at the iconic Flamingo’s Bugsy’s Cabaret hit its stride last year while shifting to five shows a week, and the hilariously deadpan performer and his charming canine sidekick, Mr. Piffles, recently extended their standout Strip gig through the end of 2019.

“Being able to perform every night has made the show a lot better, and also because I’m able to stay in one place, I can work on the tricks more than if I had to be on tour every single night,” says Piff, who was nominated as Casino Comedian of the Year this year. “Also being able to be around people like Penn & Teller, David Copperfield and Mac King has been great, to get advice from those people and be able to up our game.” Piff is a tremendous addition to the Las Vegas entertainment community but more importantly, his show is a one-of-a-kind experience that just keeps building buzz.

Flamingo, 8 p.m. daily (dark Nov. 24), $52.95-$72.95 plus tax and fee, 18+. 702.733.3333
