Worst Show In Vegas


This show isn’t what you expect when you hear the name. In actuality, this show is quite entertaining. This show stars Yurdi Worst, a magician from Austria, and his long lost younger siblings, Judy and Brock, as they live their dream of having their own big show in Las Vegas.

The Worst Show is a late afternoon, family-friendly variety show that is appropriate for all ages and filled with family dynamics we can all relate to, even if your brother isn’t a magician. It is currently being staged Thursday, Friday and Saturdays at 4:00 pm in the intimate Night Owl Showroom of Hooters Casino Hotel.

Rory Johnston stars as Yurdi Worst, a magician from Austria. Rory started his show business career when he joined the circus at age seventeen. He was trained in the world of theme parks at Walt Disney World, where he worked for four years. He has appeared in Las Vegas shows at the Lady Luck, Monte Carlo, Tropicana, Gold Coast, Sun Coast and Sam’s Town.

Rory is joined by Sarah Jessica Rhodes Smith as Judy Worst. SJ is no stranger to the Las Vegas stage. She has acted, sang, danced and choreographed in several productions ranging from West Side Story to the Sound of Music.

Comedic Juggler Jacob Jax plays Brock Worst in this show. Jacob cut his teeth in show business doing over five thousands shows on the street in Las Vegas. His talents include comedy, magic, juggling and masterfully controlling a crowd.

Rounding out the show is Botielus as cousin Weedi Worst. Botielus is Las Vegas’ most rockin’ accordionist, playing lots of rock and pop not usually associated with the squeezebox. He has appeared on “America’s Got Talent” and many other television and radio shows.
