Penn & Teller 
Our favorite combo over dinner and a show is comedy and magic, so look no further for a captivating, unique magic show to entertain even the biggest skeptics. Penn & Teller’s humor has become the spark that keeps audiences coming back for more, year after year, as their show has evolved. It’s a must-see, and at the top of our list! 

David Copperfield 
Magic and entertaining runs in David Copperfield’s blood. From an early age, his interest in magic led him to epic achievements in his craft, such Guinness Book of Records honors, as well as Emmy Awards for his incomparable shows. The MGM Grand hosts the famous illusionist, whose work will keep you captivated well after the show ends! 

The Mentalist LIVE
Gary McCambridge will tap into one of the great arts of magic – mind-reading and hypnosis – with a flair of comedy and other unique thrills. This show will challenge even the most confident skeptics by showcasing McCambridge’s ability to retrieve information from your mind you never thought possible. This one-man act has been voted the best in previous years for the interactive quality that leaves audiences feeling awestruck and inspired by his rare talents.
