Acclaimed by MAGIC Magazine as the premiere comedy magician in the world today, Mac 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 for NBC-TV, just got voted the sixth best show in all of Las Vegas, just rocked the audience on The Late Show with David Letterman, tore it up on Penn & Teller’s Fool Us, and his book from Random House just entered it’s 12th printing. He’s been named “Entertainer of the Year” by Las Vegas Weekly, and “Best Magician,” “Best Bargain Show,” and “Favorite Male Las Vegan” by the Las Vegas Review Journal. He is currently starring in the long-running The Mac King Comedy Magic Show at Harrah’s Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas where, over the last 17 years, he has performed over 8000 shows to more than two million fans.
For years now Mac has visited local Las Vegas elementary schools, spreading the importance of literacy to local students. In 2011, he decided to kick it up a notch by launching Mac King’s Magical Literacy Tour, a citywide literacy initiative to foster the love of reading. With the Mac King’s Magical Literacy Tour, Mac has attracted other community organizations to get involved in raising awareness by collecting over 25,000 books for Las Vegas school children.
As well as being an avid champion for childhood literacy, Mac began raising money and awareness for breast cancer programs and research during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October 2011. Since then, he has been supporting the cause twice a day, five days a week, 52 weeks a year, for the past four years and has sold over 10,000 bracelets, raising over $32,000 for Susan G. Komen of Southern Nevada.
In addition to his shows at Harrah’s in Las Vegas, Mac finds time to do a few shows in Performing Arts Centers and at after dinner corporate engagements. These gigs have taken Mac around the world. His astounding sleight of hand and irresistible humor has been seen both live and on television in China, Spain, Japan, Germany, Australia, Denmark, Sweden, England, Argentina, Holland, Finland, Canada, Chile, and Portugal.
According to his wife and daughter, he is a fine husband, a great dad, and all around swell fellow.
