While my college sons were home for Christmas break we headed over to the famous “Fremont Street Experience” in Las Vegas to show them all the bright lights and hoopla, as well as take them to see Mike Hammer’s Comedy Magic Show. Little did I know, my oldest son would end up IN Mike Hammer’s show! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Um3oIjnCOxg (Isn’t my son cute? He’s single, girls!)
Mike Hammer’s entertaining show has been named “Most Interactive”, a very deserving title. Not only does he constantly pull people out of the audience to help him with his tricks, but he’s very playful with audience members during the entire show and his quick wit is so charming that you can’t help but root for him.
It’s advertised that this clever performer was banned from Harrah’s Casino, after showing security his sleight-of-hand at the tables. Now he gets paid to show off his skills at the Four Queens Casino. During the fast-paced 60-minute magic show you’ll hear yourself say “No way! How did he do that?” It’s magic. It’s comedy. It’s a lot of fun.
The Canyon Club showroom itself is pretty cool too with cozy couches, interesting décor and signed guitars on display by some of your old rock faves. The stage is small, perfect for Mike Hammer’s intimate style. The performance is family friendly and welcomes ages 5 and up. The show is dark Sundays and Mondays, and tickets are only $14.95 at tickets.fourqueens.com . Las Vegas loves magic shows, and I loved this one.
Stick around after Mike Hammer’s act and you’ll be invited to purchase tickets to the L.A. Comedy Club’s following show for only $4! Plan on spending some time on Fremont Street when the canopy covering five blocks is lit up and the street performers are at their best. There’s a new zipline overhead and always plenty of interesting people to watch on the streets. This area of town used to be called “Glitter Gulch.” You still get plenty of that, as well as free concerts, cheap dinners, raunch, and old Vegas history.
