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.

Had a good time
PostedJuly 5, 2013
Really enjoyable show. We specifically chose this one because it was described as family friendly, and it was for the most part. Could have done with less exposed buttocks and cleavage on the 2 showgirls (that's what "family friendly" means, Vegas).
We arrived an hour early, were pretty close to the front of the line. So imagine our surprise when we made it to the auditorium and it was almost filled! Where did everyone come from? Fortunately, we ended up with good seats thanks to expert ushers.
We broke with convention and bought the souvenir photo afterwards because the $10 price was reasonable. Maybe the buffet photographers could learn a thing or two; no unsolicited photo is worth $25-$25, seriously.
We are new to Las Vegas shows; are they all only an hour long? Considering the steep price of shows, I was disappointed that they are also so short in duration. Nonetheless, this was a fun hour.
During the show, they offered a couple of really good deals on other later shows that evening, one was only $5 with a Nathan Burton ticket stub. Wish our schedule had been more flexible to take advantage.

Oh, so you say you like Michael Jackson? You're a Barry White and Steven Tyler fan too? Or perhaps Celine Dion and Britney Spears are more your style. Well, even if you are just really wanting to see the likes of Elvis Presley while you're in Vegas, we can assure you that "Legends in Concert" is one entertaining tribute show that brings the likes of all of the aforementioned performers (and then some) to life.Thriving as one of the longest-running shows here in Sin City, this production captivates audiences with 75 minutes of non-stop song and dance numbers from incredible tribute artists who revive and recreate some of the world's most iconic performers.The show is currently bringing to the stage the likenesses of Celine Dion, Barry White, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Steven Tyler, so brace yourself for an upbeat music experience. Complete with backup dancers, an on-stage orchestra, dazzling costumes and, of course, powerhouse voices that are just about as good as it gets, onlookers get to experience several tribute artists per show since each performer sings just a few songs before transitioning to the next act.With the intimate layout of the Flamingo Showroom, there are several moments in the show where audience members are involved. From Barry White walking out into the audience to serenade an admirer to Elvis Presley taking song suggestions from the audience during his acoustic jam session at the front of the stage, the audience remains connected to the show and the performers throughout the entire production.Projected video montages pay homage to the original acts as footage from the performers in question gives audiences a reference point and a deeper appreciation for the talent and the charisma of the performers that are bringing the days of yesteryear back to life before their eyes.Don't miss your chance to catch "Legends in Concert" for your opportunity to experience the essence and energy of some of the greatest performers in the history of showbiz.

Not exactly what I expected
PostedJuly 5, 2013
This was my first Vegas show. Performers were fabulous - musicians, dancers AND singers. I was a little disappointed that the show is little more than an hour long, and the "variety" of iconic music legends impersonated was just 5 - Madonna, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Elvis ... and one I wouldn't necessarily consider a "legend" quite yet, Adam Levine. I was actually looking forward to others I had seen in the advertisements and trailers (i.e. Rod Stewart, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga). So, I honestly thought the show was just getting started when it suddenly came to a close.

is the show suitable for kids 12-15 years old?

For the most part, it is "family friendly." The only questionable content, for us, was the 2 showgirls' wardrobe, often exposing a little too much buttock and cleavage for our comfort.
