Mat Franco wins 2016 award for ‘Best Magic Show’ in Las Vegas

“This is insane,” Franco exclaimed in a Facebook post, prior to sharing that last night he received a pleasant surprise while walking off the stage. He was presented with the 2016 “Best Magic Show” in Las Vegas award by The Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Thanks to all the readers that voted. What an amazing first year this has been,” he said, graciously.

Franco performs his “Magic Reinvented Nightly” residency at the Linq Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Mat Franco chatted with Digital Journal this past June.
