As America's Got Talent is currently airing its seventeenth season, its successful alum, Piff The Magic Dragon, as a guest performer is creating a stir on the Internet.

Piff is one of the most talked about finalists from America's Talent. He appeared in season 10 of the show and has been soaring higher post his eviction. Placed fifth-last out of the top ten, the magician made a second appearance on America's Got Talent: The Champions, where he lost in the preliminary round.

Despite not winning the reality show, this man has won several accolades for his performance off the TV set. He is usually awarded by the British Magician societies. 

Piff The Magic Dragon Net Worth 2022

Piff The Magic Dragon has had a fortunate career trajectory since his first appearance on America's Got Talent. Not all of it can be credited to his luck but this is a very hard-working man who has been consistent over the years. 

As per the reports, before 2008, even though he was into making people laugh and showcasing his magic, his work never really paid off. As a human magician, he tried everything until one day, Piff attended a costume party. 

He developed the theatrical persona of Piff the Magic Dragon, complete with a green, red, and yellow dragon costume, deadpan delivery, and self-deprecating humor. Mr. Piffles, a chihuahua dressed as a dragon, helps him out.  

He accidentally came up with the Magic Dragon identity after he attended a costume party dressed as a dragon, and no one else showed up in costume. There was only him, and he was told by a buddy who was aware of his profession as a magician that he should include that in his show.

The name suggested was Puff the Magic Dragon, but he modified it a bit and turned it into Piff the Magic Dragon. Then, as they say, is history; no looking back for this powerhouse of talent. 

In 2022, Piff The Magic Dragon has a net worth of 3 million dollars. He is currently working at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. He has been treated quite well by the owners giving him his own stage. Many people visit it just to get a glance at him.

AGT Magician Alum, Piff the Magic Dragon Earnings And Show Details

Piff started working as a regular performer at The Flamingo in late 2015, and the hotel renamed its "Bugsy's Cabaret" stage the "Piff the Magic Dragon Theater." Showgirl and real-life spouse Jade Simone helps him out.

His concert moved to the significantly larger (700 seats) Flamingo Showroom with a 3-year contract in October 2020. This itself shows the value he's been getting as a performer at his workplace. However, we cannot discard his dedication to bringing his shows alive as well. 

When it comes to his earnings, The Flamingo pays its employees on a percentile basis. A top earner, as per the pay scale, is $45,534, and an average earner gets around $27,000. As a notable artist, we believe Piff is paid around the higher range of remuneration.

Moreover, he also earns from his independent stage shows, functions, and guest appearances. These kinds of shows give away a hefty sum of money depending upon the intensity of their inclination towards any performer.

His next show is scheduled on September 28 at 7:30 PM in Hanover theater in Worcester, MA. You can buy the tickets from his official website. There is information regarding his other shows as well.
