March 30, 2012 by VegasNews.com
The legendary Laugh Factory Las Vegas is introducing magic to their comedy mix with the addition of a resident show the “Laugh Factory Presents: Murray ‘Celebrity Magician’ ” direct from America’s Got Talent and History Channel’s ‘Pawn Stars’. The show debuts April 30th for a limited engagement and will be performed at 7:00 p.m. nightly, before the regular comic line ups take the stage at 8:30p.m. and 10:30p.m.
MURRAY’s unique blend of comedy and magic along with his numerous television appearances and his 18 years of touring worldwide makes for the perfect partnership for the Laugh Factory Las Vegas’ multi-venue comedy experience.
Much like the Laugh Factory Las Vegas, MURRAY will be bringing something exciting and fresh to the New Tropicana Las Vegas with his spiky blonde hair, black Armani glasses and charismatic performance style. In the intimate venue the show will feature two of Murray’s signature illusions to be performed completely surround by his audience on a 360 degree platform located in the middle of the audience, allowing the audience the opportunity to have a rare up close and personal magic experience seeing behind, in front and on the sides of the illusion and magic. He will also have his comical sidekick and guest act ‘Lefty’ aka Douglas Leferovich woven throughout the show who is an accomplished sleight of hand artist with a comic flare.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the Laugh Factory family and have the opportunity to perform in the intimate setting where the audience is really part of the show! You can’t get any closer to magic than this!”
Murray SawChuck is a true entertainer, whose star has recently catapulted to the top thanks to his appearance on NBC-TV’s hit talent series, “America’s Got Talent,” where he advanced to the semi-finals by magically producing a Ferrari, turning a girl into a 450lbs tiger and performing the largest illusion ever on America’s Got Talent where he vanished a 1918 Steam Train Locomotive LIVE in front of over 22 million people. He also can be seen as a guest star on the History Channel TV series “Pawn Stars” as a magic expert. While MURRAY has enjoyed recent successes, he has been performing throughout the world for over 25 years, and is no stranger to the Las Vegas spotlight, having had his own show at the former Frontier Hotel and Casino exactly 10 years ago, and guest staring periodically at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino’s ‘Crazy Horse from Paris’ show. MURRAY even performed at the original Laugh Factory in Los Angeles during their open mic nights when he was just starting his comedy career. Murray has also been seen on Fox’s Blind Date, Vh1’s Celebracadabra, Tough Love, and Crime Scene, and his notable performance on Comedy Central’s ‘Reno 911’. www.murraysawchuck.com
