The Magical Genius That Is Mac King

With his charming Southern demeanor, endearing personality, witty sense of humor and incredible ingenuity, Mac King has a way of making everything he does onstage look easy.

But, in fact, The Mac King Comedy Magic Show is 70 minutes of fascinating illusions and mystifying sleight of hand—not to mention nonstop laughter.

From cards and ropes, to a paper bag and yellow rain poncho, King turns everyday objects into captivating magic, thrilling audiences in the process.

Of course, he has a little help from some close friends too: a bowl filled with goldfish and a pet gerbil he calls Colonel Sanders that you’ll meet during the show. Just don’t ask how the gerbil got his name!
