When you get invited to the 8th birthday of a magic dragon, you imagine the guest of honor set down on heaps of treasure, casually engulfing revelers in flames and grinning at princesses. However Piff’s wedding involved setting down on a chair at Kuma Snow Cream in Chinatown, engulfing revelers in dry wit and smiling at kids who were enthralled by his glossy green skin.
That’s also the color of the brand-new dessert named after him at Kuma. The Piff is honeydew snow cream with a drizzle of condensed milk and generous rainbow sprinkles, M&M’s and chewy little bits of mochi. I was nervous that the M&M’s would overwhelm the best melon taste, but the snow cream’s cold made them a crispy complement. While I left a couple of sprays behind, I discovered Piff the dessert to be an enjoyable and uncommon treat.
So is Piff the entertainer, who broke out in your area in Vegas Nocturne, an entertainment smorgasbord that had a short but remarkable run at Rose.Rabbit.Lie. In reality, I talked to the magic dragon and his magic Chihuahua partner Mr. Piffles in R.R.L.’s bath tub, where we talked about exactly what it resembles for him to be mistaken for Godzilla, the numerous appeals of Mario Lopez and other crucial things. The program supposedly wasn’t sustainable, and when it ended unexpectedly last summer season, I questioned what would end up being of Piff’s particular hilariousness.
He filled me in at his birthday last week, starting with the part where he made an application for a permit (he’s an English dragon). “It was granted nevertheless it takes three months from authorization up until it arrives, and a week later on Vegas Nocturne closed. So I was trapped! Unable to work or leave the nation for 3 months,” Piff elaborated by means of email, adding that by the time he might work once more his potential customers had actually enhanced. He opened locally for Motown group Humanity throughout December, carried out at the Melbourne International Comedy Celebration this spring, and made an appearance in his native U.K.’s popular Sunday Night at the Palladium variety show. Intending to raise his profile, he auditioned for America’s Got Skill.
“My first audition on that has had over 12 million views online already. Round 2, judges cut, airs on Tuesday the 14th of July. Fingers crossed I make it through,” Piff said. “This time I highlight my ace in the hole, Mr. Piffles. I hope we make it far, as I make certain that will assist us accomplish the dream of our own program on the Strip and bring us one step better to opening PiffLand.”
He didn’t elaborate about PiffLand … When it comes to AGT, I viewed him do his thing for Heidi, Mel, Howie and Howard, and let’s simply say this dragon knows how to work the women and a deadpan banana gag. We’ll need to see how he and Piffles fare in the next round.
They’re appearing right now in X Funny at the Flamingo, and Piff just launched a Kickstarter to produce “a totally custom-made completely badass deck of playing cards designed from the ground up to meet all your wonderful dragon desires.”
There are other things brewing that he cannot talk about yet, however Piff has taken a luster to Vegas. So have some additional sprays on your snow cream, and stay tuned.
