The event showcases the students’ accomplishments as published authors and gives them a chance to read a passage from their books during the ceremony.

During the ceremony, King shared with the students that he “checked-out” a magic book at his elementary school library, which later carved the career for the comedy-magician, now in his twelfth year as a headliner at Harrah’s. For years, King has been an avid supporter of literacy programs for young students, dedicating his personal time at local schools to discuss the importance of reading and showcase magic. In February of 2011 King launched Mac King’s Magical Literacy Tour with a mission to promote childhood literacy and provide more reading opportunities for children in Las Vegas.

About Mac King – Now in his 12th year of headlining afternoons at Harrah’s Las Vegas, Mac King has been consistently lauded throughout his impressive run, including recently being named “Best Strip headliner” in the Las Vegas Weekly’s 2011 annual Vegas’ best awards. Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” readers’ poll named his show the “Best Bargain Show” for eight straight years (2003-2011) and deemed him “Favorite Male Las Vegan” in 2008. King has also been honored as Magic Magazine’s “Funniest Act in Magic,” the World Magic Awards’ “Best Comedy Magician” and the Magic Castle’s “Magician of the Year.”

Sought after worldwide, King has made television appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” and all five of NBC’s “The World’s Greatest Magic” TV specials. King has also made several appearances at the “Just For Laughs” comedy festival in Montreal, and was a featured performer in the “Masters of Magic” series at the Luminato Festival in Toronto, Canada.

King, one of today’s brightest and most talented magicians, takes the stage twice daily, Tuesday through Saturday, at Harrah’s Las Vegas at 1 and 3 p.m. in the Showroom Theatre. Tickets are $29.95 plus tax. Additional information on The Mac King Comedy Magic Show can be found by visiting www.mackingshow.com.
