I do like Multiplying Bottles routines, and Lance Burton has that charm on stage that just brings out this best in this classic of magic. Most presentations I see of this are strsight out comedy with a lot of mugging by the performer. Lance’s style keeps the laughs in the routine without it feeling like just a repeated series of gags.
Lance Burton (www.lanceburton.com) has retired from performing on the Vegas stage, but he’s still very active in the magic community. Lance is also one of the three Americans to have a FISM Grand Prix win to his name. From the stories I’ve heard, he’s as nice a guy as you’ll find in entertainment. This is from 1990 at the Magic Castle.
