David Copperfield Las Vegas: Daring Magic & Illusion

David Copperfield Las Vegas

When in Vegas, you live large. That’s why many people head to the Vegas shows – specifically the David Copperfield Las Vegas Show. You’ll be left switching between awe and laughter throughout this 70-minute spectacle. 

The David Copperfield Show runs in the David Copperfield Theater at MGM Grand Resort & Casino. For those unfamiliar with the area, this hotel is right on The Strip and easily accessible.  

What’s all the excitement about? David Copperfield is a master magician who is known as the greatest illusionist of our time. He has appeared on multiple shows with crazy stunts like making the Statue of Liberty disappear on live television and hovering over The Grand Canyon. It’s more likely that you’ve heard of him than you haven’t at this point. 

Be prepared for a show full of over-the-top illusions in a setting void of over-the-top antics. Even though the magic tricks are intense, there are no glittering showgirls or smoke to create a distraction.

What To Expect At David Copperfield

Audience participation is considerable at each show. There’s a chance to be called on stage – or have a friend, or family member called on stage during the performance. Each time you’re lulled into a false sense of security, you’ll see someone sawed in half or another dangerous stunt.

David Copperfield takes classic magic tricks and adds his twist to make it a unique experience. It was incredible watching such a skilled entertainer up close. As someone who loved magic shows growing up, I can enjoy the expertise it takes to pull off a trick that has been performed many times.  

Beyond the usual tricks that are performed, he incorporates some of his famous illusions. Of course, the tricks are performed on a smaller scale. However, the tricks are nonetheless impressive and will leave you amazed. 

Part of what makes this activity so enticing are the stories told by David Copperfield throughout the show. While he’s stunning you with magic that will make you ask, “Is this real?” he’ll be detailing stories of his achievements and experiences. 

Even if you’ve been to a magic show or a David Copperfield show before, I highly recommend attending this David Copperfield Las Vegas Show. He is known to tweak his performances randomly, meaning there’s a high possibility of seeing a different show each time you watch. This is true for those who have purchased tickets for two shows in the same week. 

Make sure to get your David Copperfield tickets ahead of time to avoid seeing the sold-out notification.

David Copperfield Theater

Part of the appeal of the David Copperfield show is the smaller theater that the shows are performed in. The interior of the venue is intentionally kept cozy to allow viewers to see his magic up close and personal. Not only this, but it allows for those attending to feel more included in the show. 

Often when theaters are larger for magic shows, it can feel impersonal or cold. You feel as if you’re right in the middle of the action here. This is especially true if you opt for stage-side seating.

Both tables and chairs are available inside the theater, making ordering drinks during the show easy. Food is not available during the show. However, there are plenty of restaurant options both along The Las Vegas Strip and inside the MGM Grand.

Review of David Copperfield Las Vegas

For those who want a different experience beyond the usual music and comedy show performances, you’ll love the David Copperfield Show.

We purchased tickets for September and saw the second show of the evening at 9:30. Walking into the theater, you’ll immediately notice how intimate the theater is. Individual chairs are situated throughout the theater, making it feel like you’re sitting at one of your close friend’s houses. This is all a testament to the comfort you feel upon entering. 

You can feel the excited buzz from the audience before the show, and that only increases once David Copperfield steps onto the stage. As he begins the show’s storyline, you’ll be drawn into the show. The magic tricks started a few minutes in and included animatronics, which was an unexpected addition.

Through the 70-minute show, we laughed multiple times and at the same time watched tricks that were impossible to figure out – even from our seats. David Copperfield performed a few of the tricks in the middle of the audience instead of the stage. This only added to the buzzing energy in the room.

Overall, we highly enjoyed the show and one of our group members was called to the stage to be in a trick! David Copperfield lives up to the hype. It’s easy to see why he has accumulated so many awards over the years and has had many tv appearances. Grab a few drinks while you watch the show and be prepared to be amazed. 

This is truly a must-see show in Las Vegas.
