The Magic Duel Live Shows

In The Magic Duel, two demographically diverse, snarky sleight-of-hand masters battle live, on stage for the title of 'Washington DC's Favorite Magician'.

Aug 21, 2021 - Sep 25, 2021. 5PM and 8PM

The Magic Duel, one of DC's top comedy shows, is back from the pandemic shutdown and ready to re-start live shows at the Mayflower Hotel - Autograph Collection!

In The Magic Duel, two demographically diverse, snarky sleight-of-hand masters battle live, on stage for the title of 'Washington DC's Favorite Magician'. Audience members choose the magical challenges for the contest and then vote electronically to determine the winner of the coveted 'Golden Wand.'  The show is ranked number one in several categories on Yelp with a five star rating. A well balanced mix of comedy, magic and audience participation, The Magic Duel is designed for grown ups, 18 years and older for political and mature humor. It is perfect for date nights, birthdays, anniversaries, and bridal showers.

Tickets are available at Eventbrite, starting at $35 for general admission seating in the rear of the audience, $60 for assigned seats in the middle and $80 for VIP seats which are the center seats of the first 2 rows.


  • Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event

The comedy in The Magic Duel has a topical and political slant which makes it great for adults and uninteresting to most people under 18 years old. To maintain the atmosphere of The Mayflower and the show, we suggest an upscale dress code and that no one under 15 years old attend.

  • What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event

The best option is the Farragut North Metro station, one block south of the hotel. Metered street parking is very limited, but the best choice is the PMI Parking Garage at 1725 Desales St. NW. across Desales from the hotel. You can usually get a discount there using the SpotHero app.

  • How can I contact the organizer with any questions

Email [email protected] or call or text 202-262-3617.

  • What's the refund policy

Refunds are available up to 24 hours prior to the show. We understand that emergencies happen. Please contact us and we can also transfer your tickets to another performance date.

  • Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event

No, on your phone is fine.

  • Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable

Yes. You can do this yourself through Eventbrite or contact us to help you with the process.

  • What can I bring into the event

Drinks are available at Edgar, the lobby bar in the Mayflower. You may bring them into the show.

  • Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends

Yes, whoever checks in can simply give the name of the person who purchased the tickets on Eventbrite.
