Mac King



Mac King is good, clean, wholesome, weird entertainment. You've never seen anything like this! Really! Have you ever seen a person's head completely disappear? Or shaving cream shoot from a guys ear ten feet out into the audience? Not unless you've had the "MAC KING EXPERIENCE". These tricks and much more happen when you witness Mac King. Mac is not only one of the greatest magicians alive today, he's also the funniest - and weirdest. See why he was chosen to be the comedy magician on the NBC TV special THE WORLD'S GREATEST MAGIC. Find out for yourself why, after seeing his performance NBC immediately booked him for their magic special, HOUDINI: UNLOCKING HIS SECRETS. On the strength of those two performances he was asked to appear in THE WORLD'S GREATEST MAGIC II, the only magic show in history to finish in the top ten for the week. Everyone on that show performed one short spot, except Mac. He performed eight separate times throughout the show. When it was time to film the WORLD'S GREATEST MAGIC III, Mac was once again at the top of the list, making 13 appearances throughout the 2 hour show. Look for Mac again on NBC's WORLD'S GREATEST MAGIC IV. That's certainly why all the TV comedy shows like Evening at the Improv and The World Famous Comic Strip Live have made Mac a regular.

Illusion, music, juggling and deadpan comedy collide in this vaudevillesque spectacle.

Inspired by the antics of Keaton, Sellers, Victor Borge, the Smothers Brothers and the illustrious Wile E. Coyote among others, “The Great” David Kaplan welcomes spectators young and old into a wonderfully strange world they will not soon forget.

Perhaps Kaplan’s most spectacular accomplishment is emerging from the performance in one piece.

Notable shows include a recent performance as guest ‘balloonist’ with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra and network television appearances on ABC TV's "The View" and "The Statler Brothers Show" on TNN. David has headlined internationally in theatres and on major cruise lines, from Alaska to the Mediterranean to Tahiti. He has also opened shows for renowned performers including Steven Wright, Bobby Vinton, David Spade, Leon Redbone, David Brenner, Harry Blackstone Jr., and the Smothers Brothers.

Kaplan has won numerous awards including first place medals at the Canton Battle of Magicians and the Columbus Magi-fest, the coveted “Peoples Choice” award at the 2006 International Brotherhood of Magicians convention in Miami and placed 2nd at the 2008 IBM/SAM Competition -- the world's second largest magic competition.
