With his distinctive poof of platinum hair, magician Murray SawChuck appears to bound onstage straight out of a cartoon, aglow with lanky-limbed energy and an elastic smile. And naturally enough, what follows is an all-ages blend of slapstick and unreal effects not usually encountered in the three-dimensional world. Speaking to the East Valley Tribune, Murray has summarized his persona as "the 'Dennis the Menace' of magic" and his act as "a blend of comical mishaps that happen throughout my show with the end result being an amazing illusion." After levitating himself around the globe with a tour in Europe, Murray wowed the judges of America's Got Talent with tricks including transforming a showgirl into a tiger and making an entire steel locomotive vanish onstage.
Now the resident magic expert on the History Channel's Pawn Stars, Murray has lately eschewed a large-format stage show for an intimate evening of magic and comedy at the Tropicana. After a set of rib-tickling sketches and dazzling sleight of hand, Murray ventures into the audience to cap his performance with two illusions performed in the round, pulling off mind-bending magic without the aid of a wizard hidden behind a curtain. Though audience members might not be able to replicate such grand feats at home, Murray is likely to share a couple of smaller-scale inside secrets with the crowd.
“Had lots of fun.”
