He’s been performing in Las Vegas for more than 15 years and a big part of Murray SawChuck’s success is his incredible ability to adapt. He started out with a passion for magic and illusion and while his talent and charisma took him a long way, he didn’t stop evolving and growing. At the same time he was starring at the Frontier on the Strip, he was driving back and forth to Los Angeles to take his turn at open mic night at the legendary Laugh Factory.
Now Murray the Magician performs most nights at the Laugh Factory in Las Vegas at the Tropicana and he’s our guest on the latest episode of All The Vegas. We talk with Murray about his recent pop-up gig at Brian Newman After Dark; how his act and image are inspired by old-school acts he grew up with; why Roy Horn only wore glasses offstage; how his four-year foray into YouTube has resulted in 1.6 million followers and more than a billion views; why magic is booming in Vegas these days; how he developed perfect chemistry with friend and guest performer Douglas “Lefty” Leferovich; and why you always have to play the room.
