“Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience” Wins Two Awards for Its Las Vegas Residency
Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff has made waves in Las Vegas, Nevada, since its debut in June. Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner are the two actors behind the magical malarkey. The whole show is done by just the two of them, covering all seven books and the other 360 characters from the series in just 70 minutes!
After celebrating its 100th performance at the Magic Attic showroom at Bally’s Las Vegas, the family-friendly show received two Best of Las Vegas awards: Best New Act/Show and Best Value Show. It leaves us to wonder exactly how they manage such a sizable feat with only two actors. Perhaps magic? But this witty take on Harry Potter is probably what earned Clarkson and Turner their comedic standing and two awards in the industry. This is the first year Potted Potter won in the Best of Las Vegas awards, but seeing as the show is quickly rising through the ranks, it may not be its last.
The award winners of Best of Las Vegas 2019 were ranked in several different categories, including but not limited to Eat & Drink, Entertainment, Health & Beauty, Hotels & Casinos, Shopping, and Things to Do. Of those main categories, there were even more divisions for which businesses could win awards. 645 total businesses all over the Las Vegas area won either gold, silver, or bronze awards for their divisions. Potted Potter beat out Celestia and FRIENDS! The Musical Parody for the gold award in the Best New Act/Show category. In the Best Value Show category, Potted Potter earned the bronze award.
The comedic two-man show portrays the world of Harry Potter in a wild and sometimes weird way. Regardless, fans seem to be hungry for more! Potted Potter has extended its performances through January 5, 2020, with additional showtimes during the holiday season.
Before landing in Las Vegas, Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience had audiences worldwide laughing. Theaters have been sold out in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
Tickets are available for daily shows in Las Vegas through January 2020.
