Mix one part magician with two parts comedian and wrap it all in a green dinosaur suit and . . . PIFF! You’ve got Piff the Magic Dragon.
A magician for this generation of magic-lovers, Piff performs his routine with a deadpan delivery and a sarcastic, and almost self-deprecating, sense of humor—all while wearing dinosaur suit and holding his Chihuahua named Mr. Piffles.
From card tricks to disappearing acts, Piff seamlessly performs astounding magic tricks while keeping his audience laughing hysterically with his simple yet impactful commentary and seeming nonchalance attitude about performing in front of so many people. He keeps his character as a dragon, occasionally “sneezing” sparks and making excuses about what “dragons like.”
He has performed on “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” before performing on “America’s Got Talent,” where he just barely made it to the finals. With 12 million YouTube views, Piff has also performed as the opening act for Mumford & Sons on their 17-date UK tour and just finished up a six-month residency at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
He’s performed on stages ranging from London’s Shakespeare’s Globe to New York’s Radio City Music Hall to the Sydney Opera House, and now he’s coming to Phoenix. Expect to alternate between laughing out loud and picking your jaw up off the floor with this fun and unique performance. You won’t want to miss this unique and memorable magician who is quickly becoming an international star.
