Piff the Magic Dragon

Comedian | Magician | Dog Trainer

The stand out star of season 10 of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” was without a doubt Piff the Magic Dragon. Think Larry David in a dragon suit performing jaw-dropping magic tricks, then throw in the World’s First Magic Performing Chihuahua™ - Mr Piffles.

With over 50 million YouTube hits to his name, Piff has performed to hundreds of thousands of fans all over the world in iconic venues such as Radio City Music Hall, Shakespeare’s Globe, the O2, London and Sydney Opera house. He was the opening act for Mumford & Sons on their 17 date UK tour and graces the cover of their Grammy award winning album “Babel”.

After his success on America’s Got Talent, Piff was offered a solo show at the iconic Flamingo hotel where he now resides three nights a week and just celebrated his one year anniversary. On his days off, Piff tours the USA and over the past year has broken records at major comedy clubs, sold out Foxwoods and Borgata and performed to over 150,000 people. 

Mr. Piffles

The World’s First Magic Performing Chihuahua™

Every hero needs a sidekick and Piff the Magic Dragon is no exception. Step forward Mr Piffles, the World’s First Magic Performing Chihuahua™.
 
Accompanying Piff on his many adventures Mr Piffles has been levitated, laminated, shackled in a strait jacket and shot out of a cannon all in the name of entertainment. It was during the Edinburgh Fringe of 2009 that Piff realized something was missing from his act. What he needed was a gimmick.
 
So he sallied forth to rescue a small white Chihuahua from the clutches of deepest darkest Dundee and the pair have been inseparable ever since. These days Mr Piffles earns his kibble charming the damsels and negotiating contracts by the power of his cuteness. And although they may be a double act, it’s no secret who the star is.
