Based on big empire's trip report in 2003, Mac King comedy show used to be $6.95. http://www.bigempire.com/vegas/pleasureometer.html Based on vegas.com, today it is $33.99. http://www.vegas.com/shows/magic/mac-king-comedy-magic/?_guid=1-_-100000000000000252215-_-12195387144&cm_guid=1-_-100000000000000252215-_-12195387144&cm_mmc=google-_-Shows-_-Magic%2BMac%2BKing-_-mac%20king%20las%20vegas|21c6471b-2fe1-2fc8-22c3-00007b94c56c&gclid=CPXGm-zr2rACFVPftgodvWEc2Q In less than a decade, the price of this afternoon show has quadrupled. It goes back to the "biggest rip in Vegas" thread, not because shows in Vegas are necessarily the biggest rip in Vegas but because the prices for showsin Vegas have dramatically increased...and yet we do not see much greater value. Now, if your income has equally quadrupled in the past decade, then I am sure this will not seem an issue. However, what makes Mac King or any show for that matter more valuable than a decade ago? Let not the economics of it all be the main focus here though but the value.
