How much do you know about Las Vegas magician Mac King? Here are some little known facts about the performer which headlines in one of the very few family-friendly shows available on the Las Vegas Strip:

  1. While performing his cut-and-restored rope routine, Mac severed the tip of his thumb. Badly injured, he tried to stop the bleeding. When that didn’t work, Mac asked if there was a doctor or nurse in the audience. A nurse did come forward and managed to stop the bleeding. King finished that show, as well as the one that followed, before going to the hospital in order to be treated for his injury.
