Washington DC's Highest Rated Comedy Magic Show

1. Washington DC's Highest Rated Comedy Magic Show

Seen all the sights DC has to offer? Looking for a fun, unique experience to round out your Saturday night in town? Magic isn't just for kids anymore. First rate snarkists Mark Phillips and Brian Curry battle for the title of DC’s Best Magician in The Magic Duel.  This show is full of seriously funny magic that will keep you fooled. During the performance, the audience selects the styles of magic the contestants must perform such as skillful sleight of hand, outrageous comedy magic, dangerous escapes, and utterly baffling mind reading. Members of the audience assist both from their seats and on stage throughout the show. At intermission, audience members cast their votes electronically to determine who will win the coveted Golden Wand. Will it be the traditional conjurer, or his funniest student? You get to decide. This 5-star rated show is now in its fifth year at the beautiful and historic Mayflower Hotel. Suggested dress is cocktail attire. Drinks are available in the lobby bar and may be brought to the show.
