Need weekend plans? Voilà.

The Amazing Johnathan @ Stand Up Live
When the Las Vegas hotel and casino of his then-residency seemingly stopped promoting his shows, The Amazing Johnathan channeled his inner Peter Gibbons from Office Space last December and simply stopped going. After 13 years of headlining in Sin City, the comic-magician's hustling, and he'll go for tricks and giggles on Friday, August 2.

It's been a banner year for the outrageous and hilarious madman with a no-holds-barred video podcast, Burn Unit, and an hour-long special filming in the fall. Recently roasting former Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman and fulfilling every magic man's dream of entertaining and enchanting at Los Angeles' legendary Magic Castle, everything's coming up amazing.

The Amazing Johnathan conjures up a weekend full of shows at Stand Up Live, 50 West Jefferson Street in Phoenix. Shows on Friday are at 7:30 and 9:45 p.m. Tickets are $25, and there's a two-drink minimum. More info is available at or by calling 480-719-6100. -- Jose Gonzalez
