Piff the Magic Dragon Unveils His Shrunken Head at
The Golden Tiki

The loser of “America’s Got Talent,” Piff the Magic Dragon, unveiled his shrunken head last night at The Golden Tiki. His sidekick, Mr. Piffles, got in on the action too with a miniature stuffed version.

Piff enjoyed a Dole Whip while checking out the bar’s one-of-a-kind decor and Cabinet of Curiosities, stopping for a closer look at a mummified alligator, perhaps one of Piff’s ancestors.

The Baron of the Universe welcomed Piff, Mr. Piffles, and showgirl Jade Simone before Managing Partner Branden Powers unveiled the head. Smithsonian artist Terry Barr sculpted the head over the course of four weeks, referencing photos of Piff to ensure physical accuracies, including his dragon scales.

“Thank you for honoring us with a tiny, shrunken head, AKA a lifesize head,” said Piff.

The stars took a “shellfie” in the clamshell, before posing with fans, who showed up in Piff T-shirts.

Chippendales dancer James Davis was also in attendance.

Overhead in the crowd, “This is as Vegas as it gets.”

Piff joins the bar’s growing collection of famous shrunken heads, including Marky Ramone of The Ramones, Carrot Top, Frank Marino, Robin Leach, Norm Clarke, Claire Sinclair, magician Murray Sawchuck, Vinnie Paul of Pantera, Chris Phillips of Zowie Bowie, Monti Rock III, Lonnie Hammargren, and Rich Little.

The “Man of a Thousand Voices” Rich Little Unveils His Shrunken Head at The Golden Tiki

The “man of a thousand voices,” celebrity impersonator Rich Little, unveiled his shrunken head at The Golden Tiki last night. Upon arrival, Little and his group sat down to enjoy some food and a scorpion bowl, while Krystal the Magician dazzled them with tricks.

Tony Felicetta of The Sharps welcomed guests and fans with an overview of Little’s extensive and impressive career, noting his start on “The Judy Garland Show” in 1964, his appearances on the notorious Dean Martin celebrity roasts, hosting “The Tonight Show” 12 times, and his current act at the Laugh Factory.

Little then took the stage, cracking jokes and delighting the crowd with a George Burns impression. He said, “My mom said to me ‘if you don’t give up doing these stupid impressions, you’ll never get ahead in this business.’ I didn’t give up and I did get a head – a shrunken head! I’m glad that’s the only thing they shrunk!”

Managing Partner Branden Powers unveiled the head, which was sculpted by Smithsonian artist Terry Barr over the course of four weeks, referencing photos of Little to ensure physical accuracies. Glasses were added as an homage to his famous Jack Benny impression.

Little took photos with fans and magician Murray Sawchuck, who has his own shrunken head on display at the iconic Tiki revival bar.

The Australian Bee Gees Show Host Performances Benefiting the American Red Cross Labor Day Weekend

This is not the first time the American Red Cross and The Australian Bee Gees Show have joined forces. The two groups launched their partnership back in June after discovering a tie between the popular tune “Stayin’ Alive” and CPR. At 103 beats per minute, the disco hit’s tempo almost perfectly matches the recommended rate for performing hands-only CPR — 100 chest compressions per minute, with no mouth-to-mouth resuscitation necessary.

A high-energy production guaranteed to have audiences on the dance floor, The Australian Bee Gees Show features iconic classics that changed the sound of music including “You Should Be Dancing,” “Stayin’ Alive,” “To Love Somebody,” “Night Fever” and “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart,” among others.

Formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1996, The Australian Bee Gees Show has taken the world by storm.  The multi-media concert event utilizes state-of-the-art sound and superb lighting coupled with giant screens featuring video clips, live camera images and stunning graphics. Entering its 17th year as a group, the tribute band has performed more than 4,000 shows in more than 40 countries.

The Australian Bee Gees Show is produced by SPI Entertainment, the premier provider of world-class entertainment in Las Vegas including Smokey Robinson Presents: Human Nature – The Motown Show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, Australia’s Thunder From Down Under and Divas – Starring Frank Marino.

The Australian Bee Gees Show takes the stage Saturday through Thursday at 7 p.m. nightly in the Thunder From Down Under Showroom at Excalibur Hotel & Casino. Tickets can be purchased at the Excalibur box office, online at www.excalibur.com or by phone at (702) 597-7600.

THE QUAD RESORT & CASINO WITH MARRIAGE PROPOSAL FIT FOR A QUEEN

 

Las Vegas’ longest-running headliner, Frank Marino was surprised during his performance at The Quad Resort & Casino Tuesday night with a marriage proposal from his longtime partner, associate producer Alex Schechter. Riding the wave of the historic Supreme Court rulings last week in favor of marriage equality, Schechter surprised Marino by popping the question during his stage show, while the cast of Divas cheered on in support.

The couple, who celebrates their 20th anniversary together, July 4, has yet to announce wedding plans, but one thing is certain: marriage most certainly won’t be a drag for these two.
