In addition to his sidekick-magician Doug “Lefty” Leferovich and lovely assistant Chloe Louise Crawford, Murray added six other amazing acts.  Murray also assumed the role of Comedy-Magician-Host, a position that he seemed to enjoy greatly.

The acts that Murray brought on stage where all friends wanting to celebrate with him and perform for his audience.  They included Ben Stone, a singer who is direct from England and performs at the Palladium in London; Harry Basil, comedian & part owner of the Laugh Factory Las Vegas;  Nino Frediani, once ‘The World’s Fastest Juggler’ who came out of retirement for Murray’s show at 71-years old and killed it!; Jarrett & Raja, billed as the ‘Magic Illusionist & Concert Pianist’ direct from performing on America’s Got Talent this year – they presented Murray with an Achievement award for his help in making them succeed on the NBC hit show this summer; Jasmine Valencia, a 14-year old hula hoop act performing for the first time in Las Vegas; and rock legend Paul Shortino, the one-time front man for 80’s heavy metal band Quiet Riot.

Murray included a new bit just for those who have seen his show before and received a “100th Show” cake presented by the Tropicana Hotel.  This was a one-of-a-kind experience and everyone left amazed, entertained, surprised, and smiling, as Murray and friends signed autographs and photos after the show.

It was also announced that ‘MURRAY Celebrity Magician’ has been extended through Halloween (Houdini’s birthday)!
