America’s Got Talent favourite and Las Vegas resident act PIFF THE MAGIC DRAGON returns to Edinburgh with new jokes, new tricks and the same dog (at time of printing). Think Larry David in a dragon suit performing jaw-dropping magic tricks, then throw in the World’s First Magic Performing Chihuahua – MR PIFFLES.
With over 60 million clip views online to his name, Piff has performed to hundreds of thousands of fans all over the world in iconic venues such as Radio City Music Hall, Shakespeare’s Globe, the O2, London and Sydney Opera House. He was the opening act for Mumford & Sons on their 17 date UK tour and graces the cover of their Grammy award winning album Babel.
Piff stole the show on Penn & Teller: Fool Us and became the breakout star of the 10th season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent. Howard Stern and Howie Mandel were huge fans and singled Piff out as one of the funniest and most unique acts in the history of the show. America agreed and voted him into the finals. In 2014 Piff left the UK to headline a show at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. After his success on America’s Got Talent, Piff was offered a solo show at the iconic Flamingo hotel where he now resides three nights a week and just celebrated his one-year anniversary. The residency has been extended into 2018. Recent UK TV performances include Alan Carr’s Happy Hour for Channel 4 and Channel 5’s 50 Greatest Magic Tricks, for his trick on Penn & Teller: Fool Us.
