Lance Burton performs on stage as an illusionist and has a net worth of $100 million. Lance Burton has accumulated his net worth his performances in magic on television, on the Las Vegas stage and has made many TV appearances, as well as writing, producing and directing his own show. He was born in Columbia, Kentucky U.S.
Lance Burton (born William Lance Burton on March 10, 1960 in Columbia, Kentucky) is a stage illusionist. He has appeared on numerous television programs, and also performed for Queen Elizabeth and President Ronald Reagan. He was a headline entertainer for performances in Las Vegas over a period spanning from the early 1980s until 2010.
Born in Columbia, Kentucky, and raised in Louisville, Burton first became interested in magic at the age of 5, when he was one of the volunteers at a magic show of Magician Harry Collins during a Christmas party at the Frito-Lay plant where his mother worked. The trick was The Miser's Dream, where Collins "pulled silver dollars out of the sky" and Burton's ears. The young Burton was fascinated, and a neighbor, hearing of his interest, gave him a book, Magic Made Easy, which her own (then-grown) children had used. It contained ten tricks, all of which young Burton quickly learned. His first performances were for neighborhood children, charging them a nickel each.
Collins, a full-time magician, noticed the interest, and became his mentor when Burton was in his teens, teaching him the fundamentals of the trade. In 1977, as a teenager, Burton entered his first magic competition and won first prize. In 1980, shortly after his 20th birthday, he was awarded a "Gold Medal of Excellence" from the International Brotherhood of Magicians. After that, he moved to Southern California, where within a week he appeared on The Tonight Show (on October 28, 1981). Host Johnny Carson watched him in rehearsal, and allowed him to do an unprecedented 12-minute routine. Through the course of Burton's career he was invited back for a total of ten performances while Johnny Carson was host, and another ten performances during Jay Leno's tenure. Burton has also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
He performed an initial eight-week trial at the Folies Berg`ere show in Las Vegas, and this was then extended for a record-breaking nine years.
