COLORADO SYMPHONY PETITE MUSIQUE: “PETER RABBIT”

“Piff is the best! A True Original.” – David Copperfield
50% Comedian. 50% Magician. 100% Dragon. Since breaking out on America’s Got Talent in 2015, Piff the Magic Dragon has won the heart of America through his Vegas residency, network television appearances and non-stop touring.
For the past five years, Piff has headlined the iconic Flamingo Hotel and Casino in the heart of the Las Vegas strip, with over 250 shows a year in the Piff the Magic Dragon Theatre. In 2020, Piff was crowned the winner of TBS’ Tournament of Laughs, triumphing over his heroes Jeff Ross, Natasha Leggero and Judah Friedlander. In 2019, he was voted one of Variety’s Top Ten Comics to Watch and scooped Best Comedian, Best Magician and Best Headliner at the Best of Las Vegas Awards. Before arriving in Las Vegas, Piff became a viral sensation on Penn & Teller: Fool Us, had eight sell-out seasons at the Edinburgh Fringe, two in the West End and opened for Mumford & Sons, playing to 150,000 people on tour.
Accompanying Piff on his many adventures Mr Piffles (the world’s only magic performing chihuahua) has been levitated, laminated, shackled in a strait jacket and shot out of a cannon all in the name of entertainment. It was during the Edinburgh Fringe of 2009 that Piff realized he needed a gimmick. He found it the very next day in the shape of an eighteen month old rescue dog named Alfie. Twelve years later and now known as Mr Piffles, he has blossomed into one of the most famous dogs in Las Vegas and the two of them are inseparable.
They may be a double act but it’s no secret who the star is.
“A phenomenal talent” – Howard Stern
“Call him unique, call him an icon, whatever you call him, Piff will leave you asking…‘how are you going to top a guy in a dragon suit?’’ – New York Times
“I saw Piff for the first time when he walked out on our stage to do our show Penn & Teller: Fool Us. He opened with a dragon sneeze of fire, and then he did a baffling card trick. There’s a rule about comedy magicians—they aren’t funny and they aren’t baffling. Piff is different. Piff had the audience screaming in laughter, and he fooled the pants off every one of them.” – Penn Jillette
“Charming… Hilarious!” – FORBES.COM
