Born in the Oakland, California, comedy magician Nathan Burton developed the taste of magic at the age of 4 when he performed his first trick in front of his kindergarten class in the family’s hometown of Palm Desert, CA. However, nothing turned out as it should have he was hooked – and declared then and there that magic was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life.
Between the years 1987 and 1991, Burton won 4 first place trophies at international stage competitions while performing against other magicians from the Soviet Union, Great Britain, Puerto Rico, Mexico and the U. S. In the year 1996 Burton appeared on the NBC’s The World’s Wildest Magic sharing his innovative comedy magic with a domestic television audience; and after a great response from his performance, the network included Burton in its 1997 special World’s Greatest Magic 3.
On May 25th, the year 2006 “Nathan Burton Comedy Magic” started at the V Theater at the Aladdin Hotel & Casino featuring 60 minutes of Burton’s signature fast-paced appearance that combines large stage illusions, comedy and street magic. Soon weeks after opening at the V Theater, Burton was back again on the national TV and made 6 performances on NBC’s hit summer series, America’s Got Talent.
