NJPAC Presents Piff The Magic Dragon

(NEWARK, NJ) -- New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents Piff The Magic Dragon, the stand out star of Penn & Teller: Fool Us on Thursday, November 19 at 8:00pm.  Imagine Larry David in a dragon suit performing jaw-dropping magic tricks and you’re on the right track. Oh and Piff The Magic Dragon does not do Children’s Parties.  Tickets are $39.50.

With over 12 million YouTube hits to his name Piff has performed to hundreds of thousands of people in preposterous venues such as Radio City Music Hall, the O2, London, and Sydney Opera House. His sidekick Mr. Piffles, The World’s First Magic Performing Chihuahua has been levitated, laminated, shackled in a straitjacket and shot out of a cannon all in the name of entertainment.
