Lance Burton is the headlining performer at the Monte Carlo Hotel, and favored us with a brief but entertaining performance.

To begin, he commented on the Masked Magician, and said that the reason why we haven't heard from the Masked Magician in a while is that Lance had killed him. Lance explained that you should always start with a joke, and if you don't know a joke, confess to a murder.
|Demonstrates Use Of A Magician's Egg|
Lance showed everyone how to do a simple handkerchief trick, using a "Magician's Egg". At the end he added a twist, turning the false egg into a real one.
|Escapes From A Straightjacket|
After describing a method for torturing slot machine players, Lance moved on to a straitjacket escape. A volunteer from the audience strapped him in, and he was able to escape within a few minutes without any shoulders being dislocated, as Houdini was reportedly able to do.
