Not to be confused with that hack Puff, Piff is Las Vegas’s favorite magic dragon, a delightfully droll creature who wants nothing to do with the sea or, heaven forbid, little Jackie Paper. The comedic magician—who performs with his sidekick Mr. Piffles, a costumed chihuahua who calmly abides by being shoved in boxes and passed off to audience volunteers—earned a golden buzzer and the fan favorite vote on America’s Got Talent, eventually landing a show at the Flamingo, where Piff does sleight of hand and chihuahua-assisted stunts interspersed with deadpan, self-deprecating humor that may have you laughing so hard you miss the trick’s punchline. No matter. When you’re having this much fun, who cares about guessing the right card?
