From the moment John van der Put walked onto the stage of America’s Got Talent wearing a dragon costume, he was a star. He didn’t win AGT, but Piff the Magic Dragon quickly found himself on the Las Vegas Strip anyway, and it was a perfect match. The deadpan magician endlessly entertains through both his illusions (which he presents matter-of-factly, as if anyone could do them), his casual but often hysterical delivery, and of course the adorable Mr. Piffles, who usually finds himself part of the act. His show at Flamingo was extended through the end of this year, so come and join the fun. You might even get to pet Mr. Piffles!

Flamingo, 8 p.m. Sun.-Thurs., additional 5:30 p.m. show Aug. 11 & 13-15, additional 8 p.m. show Aug. 16, additional 5:30 & 8 p.m. show Aug. 17, $62.95-$103 plus tax and fee, 13+. 702.777.2782
