“It is important for us to give back to the communities where Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has restaurants and education is of vital importance. We have held book drives in other markets so we were looking to be a part of one in Las Vegas,” said Brittany Maroney, director of marketing of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. “Mac King is beloved in this city and his Magical Literacy Tour has done such amazing things for so many kids in a short amount of time that we were eager to join forces and help collect books for children in at risk schools.”
“I am grateful Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has agreed to be a drop off point for donated books and with five restaurants located throughout the city I am sure, with the community’s help, we will be able to collect a lot of books,” said Mac King. “My family loves Grimaldi’s and I have created what I like to call Mac King’s Magic Pizza, topped with anchovies and Kalamata Olives. Unlike my show, my pizza is probably not for everyone but it sure tastes great.”
Mac King has been recognized with numerous accolades including “Favorite Male Las Vegan,” and “Best Bargain Show” by the Las Vegas-Review Journal 2009 “Best of Las Vegas” readers’ poll, “Funniest Act in Magic Today” by Magic Magazine, Magician of the Year by The Magic Castle, and “Entertainer of the Year” by the Las Vegas Weekly “Readers Choice Awards.” King, one of today’s brightest and most talented magicians, takes the stage twice daily, Tuesday through Saturday, at Harrah’s Las Vegas at 1 and 3 p.m. in the Showroom Theatre. Tickets are $24.95 plus tax. Additional information on The Mac King Comedy Magic Show can be found by visiting www.mackingshow.com.
