Rick Harrison and his family own and run a pawn shop on the Las Vegas strip. They buy, sell, and appraise items of historical value.
Did You Know?
The series usually avoids referencing other History Channel programming, however an early episode featured R. Lee Ermey
visiting the Pawn Shop during the end credits, talking about a new show he was hosting at the time. Likewise, Larry the Cable Guy appeared promoting his new show, Only In America. See more
The pawn shop is always jam-packed during the "stock footage' of the shop shown between segments, yet is mysteriously empty during most transactions that take place there on the show. This is because the shop closes and vacates its customers during most filmed transactions. See more
Himself - 'The Spotter'
I'm Rick Harrison, and this is my pawn shop. I work here with my old man and my son, "Big Hoss." Everything in here has a story and a price. One thing I've learned after 21 years - you never know what is gonna come through that door.
Early episodes "play it straight" in the "this time on Pawn Stars" segments at the beginning of the show, showing what will be sold/traded/etc. on the show. However, in more recent seasons, this has become more of a "joke" segment, and features outtakes or funny scenes that aren't in the actual respective segments (cars not starting, comical dialogue, things going wrong, etc.) See more
