Lance Burton Bio
Lance Burton’s introduction to the world of magic began before his sixth birthday as a result of being taken to a Christmas party by his mother, where the featured performer was magician Harry Collins. He asked for a volunteer and an eager Lance bolted up onto the stage. The maestro performer a trick known as “The Miser’s Dream” and (seemingly) pulled silver dollars out of his bewildered, impressionable assistant’s ear. Lance thought, “What a great way to make money and people like you too.”
Lance Burton entered his first competition as a junior magician at a convention in 1977 and walked away with first prize. His maturity as a performer was becoming evident. It was no longer a matter of if, but when, the “break” would come. The recognition from his peers continued. In 1980, shortly after his 20th birthday, Lance Burton became the first winner of the coveted “Gold Medal for Excellence” from the International Brotherhood of Magicians. Lance decided that the time was right to leave home and move to Southern California. Bill and Milt Larsen immediately signed him up for their annual “It’s Magic” show and used their contacts to have him introduced to all of America by Johnny Carson on “The Tonight Show.” This one appearance put Lance Burton permanently into the pages of magic history.
On August 11, 1994 Lance Burton entered into a contract to star in, produce and direct a new and lavish version of his, already great, magic show in the Monte Carlo Resort & Casino which opened on June 21, 1996. This 13-year contract is the longest legal agreement ever given to any entertainer in Las Vegas history. And apart from the financial terms which are significant, the greatest honor of all was to have a $27 million theatre built especially for him and designed to his specifications which has been named The Lance Burton Theatre.
Lance Burton recently completed his fourth TV special which will be shown worldwide along with a new television special featuring young magicians. His specials air regularly on FOX Family Channel and internationally. He’s a regular guest on talk shows such as “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno and “The Late, Late Show” with Craig Kilborn.
His homecoming was in November of 1999 when the Louisville native returned to his hometown to perform five shows at the 2,000-seat Kentucky Center for the Arts. He also performed at the Cerritos Center for the Arts in California in 1999 and 2000 selling out the $70 million theatre.
