    We are bringing our two 10 year olds to Vegas next month.

    Want to see MK, I know there are coupons availbable at Harrah's booth, ACG Booklet, etc.
    What would be the most economical way to see him?

    Also- any other "cheap shows" you suggest for 10 year old boys?
    I heard there is a "Pet Magician" at Miracle Mile.....

    Thanks

    The other show you might want to check out is Nathan Burton Comedy Magic at Planet Hollywood - definitely kid friendly, inexpensive and a fun show.

    Check out the free booklets they have all over Vegas. I don't recall what it's called but it's about 1/2 the size of a magazine and available at numerous casinos. I've seen "get in free with drink purchase" coupons in the past for both Nathan Burton and Mac King.

    There is the Popovich Comedy Pet Theater at the V Theater in the Miracle Mile.

    If you are staying at Harrah's or one of their allied properties... email to ask if they have a package that includes Mac King. Sometimes that is the cheapest way... to have it included with room costs. I don't know how expensive the Mac King tickets are ... but we found booking 1 night at Caesars including 2 Bette Midler tickets was cheaper than buying the tickets alone... and we were staying at the Golden Nugget... Just spent 1 night "away" from home base... it was fun!!!

    You can go to the Total Rewards counter at Harrah's and ask for their Mac King coupon, which is a free entry with purchase of a drink. You exchange this coupon at the Mac King box office for the ticket; the drink cost + fee is around $15.

    based upon my last experience, one drink plus tax and made up fees was $13.50/person. that was with a "free" ticket. good show for $13.50, but i wouldn't expect to pay less than that. maybe you can get a seat w/o the one drink, but i doubt it.

    nathan burton is not a horrible waste of time, but most of his act is a variation of the same trick. when i saw him, there was other entertainment mixed in. one performer was fun to see, the other was lame, and he went on for about 15 or 20 minutes. we paid $10 for a ticket, no drink purchase required. i wouldn't hurry to do that again. but i'd see mac every time i'm in vegas.

    There is also Jeff Cevillo at the Quad which is a family freindly show. Not sure of the prices though.

    Look on coupons4locals and get free tickets to these shows . It's not just for locals. The only problem I have experienced is tried to see Burton 3 times with the free ticket and the show was canceled each time . So call b4 to make the trip to the theater.

    We saw Jeff Civillico at the Quad last year and they were passing out free passes at the entrance. We paid 10 dollars more and were set on the front row. It was a good show and kid friendly.
