Rick Thomas is one of the most successful live illusionists around. He has been a fixture in Las Vegas for many, many years and is acclaimed as one of the most entertaining showmen in the city, on a par with others like David Copperfield. He has a very idiosyncratic show that relies heavily on his supremely engaging personality – you really get the sense that he’s someone whose company you would genuinely enjoy on an everyday basis, rather that someone who’s only putting it on as a stage act. This has been a significant factor in his success, and you'll find out exactly why when you buy or sell Rick Thomas tickets on StubHub.
Honing his stage magic on hundreds of sea cruises
Rick Thomas started at a young age, like many of the world's best entertainers. He was performing magic tricks on stage at the age of seven, and in his late teens he formulated a master plan that would take him to the pinnacle of success in his chosen craft. He decided to join the cruise ship entertainment circuit, which, although ostensibly glamorous, is also known for being a tough, grinding gig that only the most professional can successfully pursue for more than a few years. He really did prove to have an appetite for it, however, and by the time he decided to return to dry land he had chalked up more than 300 cruises on his resume. It was to prove the best decision of his life, not only in terms of advancing his career and helping him to hone his craft to a fine edge, but also because it allowed him to meet his future stage partner, dancer and choreographer, who went simply by the name of Tara when she performed with him in his longstanding Las Vegas residency. You can catch him live in Sin City itself or wait for him to bring his extravaganza to you – it's all on offer with Rick Thomas tickets.
A quintessential Las Vegas entertainer
Rick Thomas is the kind of magician that takes the arcane art to new levels, which is why the term illusionist is probably more appropriate. He also has the quintessential Vegas showbiz personality, and his larger than life stage presence sweeps you along seamlessly with his performance. He's not as cerebral as someone like Derren Brown, nor as esoteric as the genuinely spooky Dynamo. He's much more of an old-school entertainer, perhaps along the lines of Penn and Teller, in being both down-to-earth and someone who could have stepped out of the Rat Pack. In this sense he's almost a piece of entertainment Americana, and well worth the effort of getting Rick Thomas tickets on StubHub. Not that you'll experience any effort: it's as easy as doing a quick search and then getting them in a few swift clicks.
