Treat yourself to an afternoon of amazing illusions, beautiful showgirls and laugh-out-loud comedy at Nathan Burton Comedy Magic. Burton's friendly personality and mind-boggling illusions have continued to captivate audiences since he first started headlining on the Las Vegas Strip in 2001.Before performing in Vegas, Burton was featured on NBC's "The World's Wildest Magic" in 1996, where he wowed audiences with his comedy infused magic. The overwhelming response to his performance led to a second appearance the following year on the network's other magic special, "World's Greatest Magic 3."In 2005, Burton was the only featured magician on E! Entertainment's "The Entertainer," starring Wayne Newton. Later that same year, he captivated audiences worldwide with his self-contrived "Ultimate Las Vegas Showgirl Challenge" where he spent seven nights inside a sealed box with seven showgirls.Many reality television fans may remember Burton from his appearance as a contestant on the first season of NBC's "America's Got Talent." He didn't win, but he did accumulate a huge following.Before the show starts, a film clip from Burton's "America's Got Talent" appearance is played on screens hanging on both sides of the stage. Watching the video is an instant reminder of Burton's magical talents.He uses an array of funny props, paired with his quick-witted comedy to both amuse and mystify the audience. Dynamic lighting, contemporary music and inventive set pieces designed by Andy Walmsley, who has also designed sets for "American Idol," and "America's Got Talent," make each new illusion more electrifying than the next.The show also features Russ Merlin, a seasoned Vegas entertainer who has performed in "V-The Ultimate Variety Show" in the V Theater in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood. Merlin's unique brand of comedy combines volunteers from the audience with masks to create a hilarious scenario on stage.Many of Burton's illusions are based on narratives from his childhood. He explains that he was always looking for a more efficient way to toilet paper houses with his friends before unveiling a high-powered toilet paper sprayer.Next, he manages to put a full-grown man in a toilet bowl and make him disappear. His upbeat and lovable personality engages the audience with each new trick.He brings out a large sketch pad with an illustration on it that he makes come to life as a real life bowling ball falls from the pages. It's simple, yet equally as amazing as some of his more elaborate illusions.After Burton recalls some of his favorite childhood toys, a life-size Barbie doll box is rolled out on stage. With the wave of a hand, he makes a real life Barbie appear in the box. Then he brings out a gigantic blow dryer and makes Barbie levitate while being blown in the wind.BBQ of Death is another one of Burton's illusions that really sizzles on stage when two assistants handcuff and put him in the grill and close the lid. After some smoke and an amusing routine by a male dancer, Burton reappears unscathed. Throughout the show, Burton selects members from the audience to help him on stage. For one of these instances, he does a prediction segment where he lets a lucky male participant pick a showgirl and describe his dream date with her. Afterwards, Burton astounds the audience as he reveals his ability to predict the future.Burton's casual and comical style, along with his string of awe-inspiring illusions, create a fun and exhilarating afternoon show that the whole family can enjoy.

High Energy
PostedFebruary 25, 2017
Fast paced entertainment, well conceived and executed illusions and a little humor thrown in for good measure. An excellent way to break up the afternoon. Highly recommended. I sat in the second row, audience left and never saw a hint of how tricks were accomplished,

Tape Face is one of those comedians who looks like he came out of the psych ward at Alcatraz. But, we promise he means no harm, it’s all part of his act, and you’ll want to see what he does next.  Tape Face woo’d the judges with his eccentric comedy routine on America’s Got Talent. Believe it or not, Simon Cowell even smiled a little, and that’s saying something since he’s the most serious dude in the world. This modern day jester uses the art of music and props to coax the best reaction out of the audience. His stunts will have you laughing and telling stories to your friend for days. Although he got most of his fame from the show, he’s also performed in a two-person act called Spitroast, at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival and the World Buskers Festival. Did we mention he graduated from Clown College? Oh ya, that’s a thing.Check out Tape Face when he sticks his comedy routine on to the Vegas stage.

Unique and entertaining
PostedFebruary 25, 2017
Tape Face's opening night was sold out. Loved the fact that most of his act is audience participation. At least a dozen members of the audience were brought on stage to assist in various skits and they were all good sports. It's amazing how he can get his point across without a word.

Impersonations are hard. We’ve tried our hand at it and have been called a “garbage fire” at worst, and “not good” at best. Hopefully we can pick up some pointers when master impressionist Rich Little hits the Vegas stage.Calling Little a “master impressionist,” is a bit of an understatement. The dude is a comedy icon. During the ‘70s he was a regular on “Hollywood Squares,” “The Judy Garland Show,” and even was a guest host on “The Tonight Show” 12 times. Name a person or celebrity and Little can drop a spot-on impersonation. His Ronald Reagan, Frank Sinatra and Kermit the Frog bits are legendary. He’s so good, he’s been known to step in for stars who can’t do their own soundtrack dubbings.Little is going to teach a master’s course on impersonations. Feel free to borrow our notes afterwards if you want.

Rich Little provides a great walk down memory lane. A must see for any Baby Boomer. A wonderful use of pictures and video to provide backround for his stories. And, yes, still an excellent impersonator.

Bill Medley gives a great performance. His voice is still up to the standard that made him and Bobby Hatfield a legendary duo and his showmanship shines through for the entire show. His tribute to Bobby will bring a lump to your throat. His new partner is a professional and an excellent talent in his own right and pairs well with Bill. No one can replace Bobby Hatfield and to his credit he doesn't try.
The whole show is a great walk down memory lane and worth every penny.

The world fell in love with him and his magic on NBC's "America’s Got Talent," and now we’re claiming Mat Franco as our own with his headlining magic show at The LINQ. Winner of season nine, this guy has already proven that he has the mojo to wow a massive audience with his sleight of hand and out-of-this-world magic. Oh, and his charisma just cranks it all up to 11.Performed in an intimate showroom, we love that we can get right up close to the stage to see if we can figure him out. And we’re happy to say we have – he’s obviously a wizard. He will, however, teach you one trick during the show that’ll make you want to slap your forehead, but you’ll still be dumbfounded for the remaining 85 minutes of magic. Like, c’mon… how does he get the phone in the audience booth?! Or the playing card in the Ramen package? Scratching your head too?Well we’ll probably never know the methods to his magic but Mat does let us in on some personal stories. He takes a moment to explain how his love for magic all began and believe us when we say, you’ll be hanging on his every word. It’s pretty cool and definitely unforgettable. See Franco’s magic unfold before your own eyes and then report back to us. Maybe you’ll be the first to figure out the mystery behind his magic.

Excellent Show
PostedApril 10, 2016
Mat Franco is as good a personality and showman as he is a magician. He establishes a very good rapport with the audience and their participation is an important part of his act. If you're looking for big illusions, this is not the show for you. Most of what he does is close up type magic (cards, etc.), but the video screen behind him brings the audience close to the action. Worth the money.

 FRANK - The Man. The Music.
FRANK - The Man. The Music.
A step inside of the Palazzo Theater is a step into the dazzling wonderment of classic Vegas as impressionist Bob Anderson brings to life a complete Frank Sinatra concert just as it would have been done at the height of the legend's performing career.Covering various chapters of Sinatra's life -- his work in the recording studio, personal appearances, concerts and work on television specials -- this concert recreation brings you back to vintage Vegas, spotlighting all of the romance and glamour that was Frank Sinatra.  And while Anderson's eyes may not be the same striking shade as the Chairman of the Board's, it is undeniable that his crooning vocals not only hits the right notes but deliver every lyric with the intended emotion and passion that only Sinatra himself previously brought. As Frank Sinatra, Anderson performs hits from The Great American Songbook, including, "Come Fly with Me," "One for My Baby" and "My Heart Stood Still" among many others.Conceptualized and brought to life by an all-star creative team, the 32-piece orchestra is not only made up of nearly 50 percent of Sinatra's personal orchestra members, but is also under the musical direction of Vincent Falcone, who was Sinatra's close friend and personal musical director for more than a decade.Anderson closely studied Sinatra for more than two years in preparation for this role and he embraces Sinatra's complete identity by way of costume, makeup and mannerisms to truly immerse the audience in 90 minutes of genuine, circa 1960-1970, Sinatra entertainment. To further add to the experience, Anderson is transformed with the use of makeup and the help of Oscar-nominated artist Kazu Tsuji (best known for aging Brad Pitt in the movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button") to look like Sinatra.Performing approximately 20 of Sinatra's most notable hits in addition to lesser known tunes, Anderson, who was inducted into the Casino Legends Hall of Fame for his impersonating and entertainment talents in 2002, stops at nothing to give the audience as close a look as possible into the life of a legend who not only shaped, but defined numerous facets of the music industry we know it today.Enjoy the performance from the main house seats or add to the evening’s vintage Vegas vibe by taking in the show from the front row in the theatre’s VIP area with tables and pay-as-you-go beverage service.

Travel back to the Middle Ages and experience a celebration of Medieval proportions at Excalibur's Tournament of Kings Dinner & Show. This dinner and show features jousting, dancing, singing and a feast fit for a king. The show is a fun way to combine getting dinner with experiencing the excitement that ensues when knights in shining armor on horses duel to determine a champion.Guests are seated in an arena-style setting with each section representing a different "country." Four-rows deep, the arena is divided into seven "country" sections and the "dark knight" section, which represents the evil Mordred's minions. During the show guests are encouraged to cheer on the king representing their section as the knights go head to head in various competitions including a horse race, jousting, sword fighting and gladiator-style battles.Once seated, guests are served the first portion of their dinner, "dragon's blood" (hot tomato soup.) Just like what real lords and ladies would have experienced back in the Middle Ages, utensils are not provided, and patrons have to eat with their hands. Servers also come around during this time to fill drink orders. Along with soda and juice, an assortment of alcoholic beverages are available for purchase during the show.Merlin and a court jester get the crowd going by introducing three cheering methods that actively engage everyone in the audience. After a hearty dose of merriment from Merlin and the jester a drum processional files into the arena to announce the entrance of King Arthur. Next, the other kings are announced, each blazing into the arena on a galloping horse.The knights are dressed in costumes rich in color and design, and each of their horses is adorned with bright plumage. The costumers were designed by Michel Fresnay, who was nominated for a best-costume Emmy in 1989 for the television production of "Napoleon and Josephine."During this time, dinner consisting of a roasted Cornish hen, steamed vegetables and a biscuit is served. While the audience dines, a large round table is lowered into the center of the arena where King Arthur and the other knights also partake in the feast, raising their glasses and toasting to the joyous occasion. Dessert is served afterwards and includes a sweet pastry.After a song and dance number by the court maidens, the knights set aside their glasses and engage in some friendly competition to determine who is the champion king."If you want to win you must cheer," announces Merlin as he and the maidens encourage each section to root for their king.Audience members embrace the opportunity to be loud and cheer when the king representing their "country" is doing well or boo when he is losing the competition.The competition is interrupted when evil Mordred, the fire wizard, appears and attempts to capture King Arthur's kingdom. The kings unite to try and defeat the dark knight in a series of action-packed battles. Fire, smoke, explosions and of course more cheering from the audience fill the arena. Swords clash and sparks fly as the battle between good and evil proceeds until finally one side is defeated.Tournament of Kings Dinner & Show brings all the action from the Medieval period that you've seen in movies and read about in history books right to your dinner table. Audiences of all ages can enjoy this raucous celebration. --By Caroline Fontein

When Carrot Top comes out on stage there's no telling what crazy contraption he's going to pull out next, but classifying him as just a prop comic is an understatement. His wacky inventions are merely an extension of his outrageous and hilariously funny personality. While some jokes are based on items that he pulls from his prop trunks, others rely on his talent as a stand-up comedian and comical commentary on everything from tourists to NASCAR, celebrities and current events.He begins with talking about how when people come to Vegas they suddenly have urge to gamble on everything in sight."One time I lost $20 on a Coke machine," jokes Carrot Top.Then he introduces a few of his "inventions." "Here's an Amish hair dryer," says Carrot Top as he pulls out a long bendable tube that he has to blow out of and aim at his hair. Next he demonstrates a redneck baby carrier, which is actually a box of beer that has holes cut out of it to fit a baby's head and limbs.The red-haired comedian barely stops to take a breath as he transitions between frantically searching for a new prop and telling jokes. Before you know it the topic has changed from walking to the Excalibur to his last visit to the porn convention in Las Vegas."It takes an extra hour to walk around because your feet get stuck to the floor," jokes Carrot Top while people in the audience can't help but keel over laughing.Next he transitions to talking about athletes and pulls out a football helmet with a phallic attachment to demonstrate what one of his least favorite players should wear.His show is just as wild and crazy as his big hair and brightly colored tie-dyed T-shirt that he wears during his performance. What seems like a loud fashion statement for most people is mild in comparison to the comedian's uninhibited personality.Mid-way through the show, a bucket is lowered from the ceiling with what the comedian claims to be his "medicine." He pulls it out and reveals that his medicine is actually Crown Royal. Carrot Top pours a shot for himself and then a few more that he hands to people in the front rows while AC/DC's "Have a Drink on Me" plays in the background.You just never know what this crazy comedian is going to say or do next. At times it looks like not even he knows what's going to come out of his mouth, but he admits later on in the show that "A lot of this isn't for you. I'm just entertaining myself."However, the continuing laughter and buzz from audience members as they exit the theater and re-tell some of his jokes proves that he is doing much more than just that.-- By Caroline Fontein

Carrot Top's show is an incredibly funny and non-stop. Stand-up, props and video are woven into a laugh-a-second performance that keeps the audience in constant laughter. With 9 trunks of 'stuff' on stage, his creative use of everyday objects will bring tears to your eyes.

Frankie Scinta and the Scintas
Frankie Scinta has been performing with his brother, Joe Scinta, since they were kids. Along with fellow Buffalo, N.Y. native Janien Valentine and Peter O'Donnell, they put on a show that makes everyone in the audience feel like family.Frankie Scinta's impressive musical talent is the backbone of the show, but the performers' playful comedy keeps guests laughing the whole way through. "Adopted Scinta" Peter O'Donnell has been with the show since the family first took the stage in Vegas. He still plays drums and backs up his brothers' banter.No crazy costumes or special effects are needed to make this show spectacular. It's all about pure talent and unforgettable performances. Come see for yourself why many consider the Scintas Las Vegas' first family of entertainment.

Aside from magic, he's worked as a game show host for numerous national clients.

Does the higher priced ticket for Mike Hammer provide a better seat than the general admission ticket?

Terry Fator may just be the greatest illusionist on the Las Vegas Strip, but you'll never see him perform any magic tricks. He amazes audiences by singing like famous entertainers from Elvis to Cher without moving his lips, and that's not all. Along with being a singer and a celebrity impressionist, Fator is a puppeteer. His face may not move much during his show, but his hands are always in action, bringing to life his cast of lovable puppet co-stars.The puppets each have their own comical personalities and music style, which makes Fator's show feel like both a concert and a stand-up comedy routine. There's Winston, the impersonating turtle; Walter T. Airdale; Maynard Thompkins, the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor; Julius, the soul singer; Monty Carlo, the lounge singer; Hyphen, the delusional British rocker; Vikki, the cougar; Barry Fabulous, a flamboyant hip-hop diva; and Wrex, the safety expert. When the puppets aren't singing, they're sharing their comedic wit with Fator and the audience.All the while, if you really pay attention, you get the chance to hear something remarkable. Fator's vocal range extends from Etta James' "At Last," to Garth Brooks' "Friends In Low Places." The appreciation for his talent runs even deeper when he performs both parts of two duets. He does Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," and "What A Wonderful World," as Kermit the Frog (with Winston) and Louis Armstrong.Combine that range of musical samplings and add in that Fator never opens his mouth more than half an inch during the songs unless he's taking a breath or, on the rare occasion, singing a song as himself.To call Terry Fator a master of puppets would be an under appreciation for his show and talents. But to call him the best singer on the Strip, who doesn't open his mouth more than half an inch, while using puppets and providing endless comedy might be more accurate. Unfortunately, that's really hard to fit on a billboard.A multitalented performer, Fator got his big break when he won NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2007. Fator won $1 million and a gig to perform on the Strip. Since 2008 hundreds of thousands of tourists have seen Fator's show. Aside from Vegas, Fator has been featured on "The Today Show," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman."-- Staff Report
