Harrah’s Las Vegas Headliner and Comedy-Magician Mac King will host the 44th Annual Academy of Magical Arts Awards Show on Sunday, Apr. 1, at 7 p.m. gala inside the Saban Theatre on Wilshire Blvd. in Beverly Hills, CA. A recipient of the “Magician of the Year” award in 2004, King now joins a distinguished list of celebrity emcees, including Neil Patrick Harris and Bob Barker, that have hosted this prestigious ceremony which is considered among many to be “The Oscars of Magic.”
“It is an honor to return to the stage as host this year,” said Mac King. “Winning ‘Magician of the Year’ at the AMA Awards show in 2004 is a proud accomplishment and memorable experience in my career and I look forward to being a part of this tremendous experience for other distinguished and outstanding prestidigitators.”
The Academy of Magical Arts Awards Show, produced this year by Max Maven, is one of the magic community’s most highly anticipated events of the year.
