What To Expect At Potted Potter Las Vegas

Potted Potter somehow includes all seven Harry Potter books into one jam-packed hilarious show suitable for the whole family.

Created by two-time Olivier Award-nominated actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, Potted Potter has performed globally for over a decade and has cultivated an excellent reputation. 

For the dedicated Potter fans who know all of the differences between the books and movies, you’ll laugh at the ridiculous parodies these guys perform.

That having been said, there’s a good chance you’ll be tempted to read the books or watch the movies if you haven’t already! 

Here’s a teaser: fire-breathing dragon, music, live quidditch game, dance, and of course, Hogwarts magic. 

Potted Potter is a slapstick, no-frills production full of references and fresh, wholesome humor—you’re not going for the stage design; you’re going to see Dan and Jeff’s never-ending impressive energy as they riff off of each other for over an hour.

Their performance has undeniable chemistry, and you can tell these clowns are friends off stage, too. The show is a wonderful, entertaining mix of comedy, parody, Harry Potter references, and hilarious obviously-corny props. 

Don’t let the description of it being a “parody” fool you too much, though—it isn’t aiming criticism at the world-renowned series. It is just bringing their own humor to the plot.

They go roughly in the sequence of the seven books, meaning that the cast of two actors embraces many characters (as in literally over 200 of them) throughout the fast-paced show. 

The Magic Attic isn’t too large so you’ll have a good view no matter where you sit—and, Dan and Jeff do a great job bringing their energy into interacting with the crowd. There is, of course, a bar for your enjoyment.

Horseshoe Resort & Casino is located right in the middle of The Strip so you’ll be centrally located after the show. 

Potted Potter is well-received by Harry Potter fans and others—many tout the show as a unique family-friendly show in Las Vegas.

If you browse the reviews online, you’ll see that many people appreciate the loose ties with the series but overall accessible parody humor: “Definitely a show to see whether you know Harry Potter or not (but my goodness if you know it some of the humor is just so spot-on)! Such a great show!!!”

Another review in the same vein reads: “Potted Potter deviates from the canon but in the most humorous way. We were laughing most of the night, along with the rest of the crowd. The two-person cast bounced from character to character and book to book.” 

If this sounds like it is up your alley, buy your tickets before they sell out—don’t miss this chance to see Dan and Jeff put on a simply hilarious “Unauthorized Harry Experience”!
