If the Vegas entertainment scene is a sauce, Giada Valenti is the seasoning.
For those with an interest in magic, adult fun, and late-night entertainment, Late Night Magic put on at the Alexis Park Hotel in Las Vegas is the show to go to. Late Night Magic is the only late night, adult magic show featuring a cast of diverse magicians. Most late-night options for shows include comedy clubs and topless revues but Late Night Magic is a unique and affordable option for tourists who are looking for something different to do late night in Las Vegas.
The show started a couple of years ago, as an idea of Michael Mayfield and Douglas “Lefty” Leferovich. "Michael and I created Late Night MAGIC to allow some of Las Vegas' top magicians who didn't yet have their own shows on the Strip, and also were not the traditional 'magician in a tuxedo and top hat.'" said Douglas. "We knew we wanted it to be a late-night show so the acts could cater to adults, and we wanted to feature multiple magicians that are experts in their fields, like comedy magic, sideshow shenanigans, mind-blowing mentalism, and unique manipulation,” said Douglas. “We also wanted the ability to rotate acts periodically to keep the show fresh, so tourists returning to Vegas will see something new when they come back to this show."
Pete Housley, CEO of Admit VIP, joined the team as Executive Producer for Late Night Magic to elevate it to a resident show at the Alexis Park Resort Hotel. Even with the restrictions in place during the pandemic, the show opened and sold out every show over the first two months it was open.
Most magic shows in Las Vegas feature one magician performing the whole show by themselves. In Late Night Magic, the show features four magicians and the host Lefty that also performs magic. Each magician in the show focuses on what they specialize in. “If one act is not someone’s favorite or that person’s “cup of tea,” then in 15 minutes guests and audience members will see another magician performing a completely different style of magic,” says Late Night Magic’s producer and host Douglas “Lefty” Leferovich.
The four main rotating acts in the show go by the names of Bizzaro, John Shaw, AnnaRose, Mondre, and Lefty. “Each act is completely different!”, says Leferovich. Bizzaro, known as the Optical Illusionist, does multiple acts and is very visual and unique to his brand. John Shaw, the resident sideshow freak, takes the audience on a wild ride into the dark and taboo side of magic and sideshow stunts. AnnaRose, the Mental Influencer, combines magic, mind reading, and hypnosis. Mondre is probably the smoothest sleight of hand artist working in Vegas today. He performs a hip and cool act where doves appear out of thin air, objects appear and disappear. Lefty provides laughs with edgy and adult humor, as well as performing his signature card manipulation act.
These magicians have been seen on stage at major Las Vegas strip hotels and The Magic Castle in Hollywood, as well as on national and international TV shows like America's Got Talent, Ripley's Believe It or Not, Master of Illusion and Ghost Adventures. Explore the dark, taboo, hilarious, and even the sexy side of magic and illusions at Late Night Magic; a must-see Vegas experience show like no other.
