As Magic lover in Las Vegas I always enjoy Lance Burton whether on stage or off he is a great magician and a great person.

Agreed. Glad he signed his new contract so we'll be seeing more of Lance.

You may enjoy my interviews with both Mac & Lance.

I absolutely loved the Mac King show I saw in Vegas, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Flawless magic, Mac worked it with the crowd, and had a terrific interaction with a child volunteer. The show unfortunately had one of the rudest ushers (female) I have ever met in my lifetime, several complained about her while in line and how they were being seated, as I did directly to her usher "boss" after the show (who seemed infatuated with her and that she could do no wrong). Really ruined the entire show for my wife who could give two hoots about magic, and this was before the program even started. Usher REFUSED us to move to another empty seat, not even closer to the stage, even though she put us at a sidewise table in the far back right next to a noisy baby (who of course never stopped being fussy as we predicted to the usher before the show started). Why people bring small infants to a magic show, I have no idea... but it is even worse when they won't let you move to a vacant seat. About 30 seconds before the show started, we moved over directly to the right about 20 seats (not closer to the stage)to an empty area. The usher came over, told us we had to move back, humilated us (my wife and I are both over age 55). What a control freak. We were staying at the same hotel (Harrah's that we really like) and spent a ton there on food and gambling, so I was not too pleased. I struggled paying attention and enjoyed the show, but my wife said never again. And all this has absolutely NOTHING to do with Mac King, but what can often happen to a magic performer who is working his tail off, and without his knowledge, a usher or somebody else in the ticket office or drink table wrecks the experience for someone in his audience. As Patrick Swayze said in "Roadhouse", Be Nice! If something like this ever happens to you, go straight to the hotel/casino manager which is what I wished I had done, and expect to be treated like a "King."

Saw Mac King's show last June. It was a real highlight of our trip. He had me crying I was laughing so hard. Fantastic, tight show. Lots of laughs and magical skill. Mac King is one of the best, and most certainly underrated.
