Burton's "Microwave of Death" escape transforms into a hilarious gag that is as funny as it is politically incorrect. In another segment, he serves a unique twist on head twister with a second, surprising phase.
A fantastic routine that he performed on television, in his "mystery date/beauty enhancer," Burton calls for a telephone date and then has to rely on his "beauty enhancer" to make things right in his eyes.
In another routine, Burton uses a device that can fling toilet paper into the highest branches of a tree, perfect for TP-ing a house, which somehow ends in a surprising situation involving a security guard and a toilet. I liked Burton’s clever variations and adaptations that include a fresh take on classic "broom suspension."
In between the set pieces, Burton does front-of-the-curtain material that includes predictions, productions, escapes and more. Something I've never seen before, Burton escapes from a clear strait jacket. Overall, however, when compared against his illusions, his stand-up material is far more conventional.
Burton performs in the Flamingo Showroom, the same room where the casino’s other headliners entertain.
I thoroughly enjoyed Nathan Burton's zany magic, a professional and polished show. And the ticket, which starts at $34, is reasonable. I can sum up Nathan Burton’s Comedy Magic in two words: "LOL," and sometimes, even "ROTFL."
