Voted "The Best Show of the Year" in Las Vegas, The World's Greatest Magic Show was first a Television Series, which later became a Live Show in Las Vegas, produced by Dick Feeney, TRP Entertainment LLC. Appearing 6 days a week, 2 shows a night at the Sahara Hotel, but later moved to 7 days a week, 2 shows a night at the Greek Isles Hotel (which originally opened in 1970 as the Royal Inn, then became the famous Debbie Reynolds' Hollywood Hotel).
It was in this charming, 500 seat theater, where I first appeared in Las Vegas with my close-up magic, and later with my sleight-of-hand, costume change, stage act. (you can check out my other show appearances here). This was a tremendous honor for me to be added to the cast of the all-star performers, appearing with illusionists like Kevin James, Joseph Gabriel, Gaeton Bloom.. just to name a few.
In 2007 the show also appeared in Detroit at the beautiful 3,500 seat Fisher Theater.
On February 10th, 2015 The Greek Isles Hotel and Casino was demolished by implosion, taking with it all it's history and the beautiful theater.
At the tender age of 13, Hungarian magician Katalin won first place in the Junior Category of "A Festival For Magicians" in the Czech Republic.
She was the youngest ever to receive that award.
Katalin can currently be seen working nightly in the "World's Greatest Magic Show" at the Greek Isles Hotel & Casino just off the Strip on Convention Center Drive.
Combining great skills with great beauty, Katalin emerged as an internationally famous magician before she turned 21.
Katalin has performed in all corners of the world, working dove tricks and other sleight-of-hand illusions during a well-received stint at the Family Festival in Dubai, capital of the United Arab Emirates.
The lineup varies in "World's Greatest Magic" but usually includes such top names as Kevin James, Joseph Gabriel, The Majestix and emcee Paul Kozak. Show time for "World's Greatest Magic" is Sat.-Thur. at 6 p.m. and Fri. at 8:15 p.m.
