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.

I would say it was way better than Chris Angel..I was sorry I paid so much more money for Chris Angel. He seems prejudice to Native Americans too. Some of the tricks done by Nathan Burton was the same as Chris Angel so it made chris angel less worth...my children loved this show. This was 4th of July weekend. Please pass this comment along to Nathan because I know he is good friends with Chris Angel. I was disappointed that Chris was so unclassy. Nathan did a great job with respect and clean jokes. Thank you very much!
