LAS VEGAS – June X1, 2011 – Harrah’s Las Vegas Afternoon Headliner and Comedy-Magician Mac King was named “Best Strip headliner” in the Las Vegas Weekly’s 2011 annual Vegas’ best awards, which celebrates Las Vegas’ finest in categories ranging from nightlife to personalities. Featured in the May 26 issue, the Weekly Awards identified the top dining, entertainment, attractions and more. Winners were honored during a night of cocktails and music hosted by Las Vegas Weekly at Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Saloon inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Wednesday, May 25.
“Harrah’s Las Vegas congratulates Mac King on this well-deserved title,” said Rick Mazer, president of Harrah’s Las Vegas. “King has been delighting audiences with his amazing talents and a truly entertaining performance. It’s no surprise that many of our guests and visitors to Las Vegas have been ‘wowed’ by his unique style of comedy-magic.”
For the past 11 years, Mac King has performed an incredible 5,720 shows to more than one million audience members during his impressive run. King captivates audiences as he casts out a fishing line over their heads and catches live goldfish out of mid-air, performs amazing sleights-of-hand, makes his head completely disappear in a paper bag, and renders himself invisible, all while remaining unbelievably funny. Because of his quick wit and extensive audience interaction, no two shows are alike. King’s show has been such a success over the years that he recently signed a contract to continue providing laughter and magic at Harrah’s Las Vegas for five more years, extending his run through 2015.
