Las Vegas Magicians are known for providing extraordinary shows and eloquent designs, however; did you know that there are over a dozen different types of shows available throughout sin city? Las Vegas magic shows can be just the thing you need to get out of a funk, increase productivity, or even rejuvenate your relationships. Magic is the best medicine in the world because there is never a shortage of laughter.

Stage illusions are the most popular type of show that Las Vegas Magicians perform. They are performed in front of large audiences and use very large props. The stunts tend to be sophisticated in nature and use animals. Harry Blackstone, David Copperfield, and Vitelli are a few of the greatest illusionists to ever hit the city.

Las Vegas Magicians are also known for providing platform magic, which is a smaller version of stage illusions, usually performed in front of smaller crowds. They are often advertised as cabaret or stand up magic and use small tables and other stands to perform their illusions. Live animals are typically not included and props may not be as big as some shows. Penn and Teller are the most famous cabaret magicians, however; there are many others including Vitelli.

Micromagic is often found along the Las Vegas strip and is a form of magic that is performed in front of people in close proximity. Usually it is done with a small crowd or few people and use small or medium props, such as doves or rabbits. Micromagic individuals typically are not famous and are trying to make a name for them. These shows are usually free and promote some form of brand or advertising.

A mentalist performance is another type of magic show that Las Vegas Magicians perform. These can take the form of hypnotist shows, however; they are generally funnier and less serious than other shows of that nature. The mentalist attempts to read the minds of the audience members, predict events, control audience actions, and is presented on a stage like a cabaret.
