Ready for live entertainment? Two skilled magicians battle for the title of DC's Best, performing seriously funny magic with audience involvement from start to finish.  Who will win?  You, the audience, will decide.  The Magic Duel has earned 4 consecutive TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence and a 5-star rating on Yelp.  

 An upscale alternative to the traditional comedy club, The Magic Duel is filled with laughs and snarky political humor but without the "raunchiness" of most comedy clubs - and it is in a beautiful venue so you can dress up and have a spectacular evening out.

Surprise - great show!!!

This was a spur of the moment purchase from Trip Advisor recommendations. What a GREAT experience! Family Friendly. BOTH magicians were AMAZING! I really enjoyed the small venue. Some interaction with the audience but not overwhelming or disrespectful.
What an unusual and FUN find at the last minute. So glad we went.
The warm mulled spiced wine was aromatic and really good.
Shout out to the young people that worked as ushers. Very sweet and engaging.
Great Show.
