Howdy, I’m Mac King! If those words don’t sound familiar to you, they soon will. Magician and Comedian Mac King was just named “Magician of the Year” by the Magic Castle in Hollywood, just broke a Guinness World Record, just appeared on his seventh TV special forNBC-TV, just got voted the 6th best show in all of Las Vegas, and his book from Random House just entered it’s 5th printing. How did a kid fromLouisville, Kentucky find himself in the enviable position of being perhaps the funniest magician inAmerica? Let’s find out, as we examine…
Because Mac’s act is not onlyoriginal and extremely funny, but also very clean (he doesn’t even say “damn” in his show), he found that corporations around the country were vying for his services. In addition to simply performing his show as their after-dinner entertainment, Mac King has had great success as a congenial host for their various meetings.
In the last few years, magic shows on television have become more popular than ever, and Mac King has been there from the beginning. That beginning was, of course, with David Copperfield. Mac had developed a magic trick that just wasn’t right for his own show, but David thought enough of it to pay Mac for it and put in his live show and then on his television special later that year. The next year, the same thing happened with Penn and Teller. Mac King was beginning to make a name for himself as a creative force in the magic world.
All that attention garnered Mac King a showcase for the producers of NBC-TV’s The Worlds Greatest Magic shows. His unique hilarious tricks, including his ability to make his head cave in, landed him a spot on the first of these highly rated annual specials. After seeing him on that show, all of the people involved just had to have him in their next big NBC magic show, Houdini: Unlocking His Secrets, where Mac King performed his absurdly comical rendition of Houdini’s Thumb Tie Trick. The segments Mac devised the following year for The World’s Greatest Magic II were so popular that The Mac King School of Magic became a regular fixture on all of The World’s Greatest Magic shows. Mac King is the only performer to appear on all five of these exceptionally well-received shows. His success on those programs landed him a spot on another NBC special, The World’s Wildest Magic. Which, in turn, lead to him being featured on Penn and Teller’s Sin City Spectacular.
Because all of those NBC TV shows were taped at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Mac began to get the attention of some of the bookers of Casino showrooms in that fabulous city. He and Jennifer moved from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in early 1997. Mac King has appeared in Spellbound at Harrah’s, The Great Radio City Music Hall Spectacular at The Flamingo Hilton, at The Desert Inn with Comedian Rita Rudner, and in Splash! at theRiviera. Before moving toLas Vegas, Mac was working on the road an average of 220 days a year. Given the hilarious nature of Mac’s act, and the broad spectrum of folks it appeals to, it was inevitable that a casino would come calling with a full-time offer. Mac began a two-year run with his own one-man show (The Mac King Comedy Magic Show) in Las Vegas at the Harrah’s Casino and Hotel on Jan 11th, 2000. That initial run has now been extended through 2015! Mac King spends most of his increased spare time developing new material for this show. His latest ridiculously amusing creation, The Cloak of Invisibility, has to be seen to be believed.
At the end of 1999, Mac made his first appearance on the new syndicated Donny and Marie Show, where he performed his Amazing Goldfish Trick. Using a small piece of a Fig Newton as bait, Mac caught live goldfish on a fishing line cast out over the heads of the audience. His October appearance was so successful that it made their year-end highlight show of The Best of 1999. Mac King made 4 appearances on their show before it was cancelled (not Mac’s fault). And a couple of months ago his house was featured on Home and Garden Television.
After his success in daytime and prime-time TV, it was inevitable that late-night TV would come a-callin’. Mac’s appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman really rocked. Obviously, you should keep your eyes peeled for reruns of all of Mac King’s TV appearances.
