I had the pleasure of seeing his show in Vegas about a year ago. I saw him perform this same sleight of hand act ( http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... rton&hl=en
). That's when I got into magic
As coolsnail mentioned, he is pure class. Just by looking at the image of him you can tell. His show has many different AMAZING illusions, including some based off of the "metamorphosis" effect. He makes a lot of jokes and really got me laughing, but at the same time kept the standard level of class very high. He involved a lot of kids in the show, I particularly remember him doing the Miser's Dream (producing mulitple silver dollars from anywhere) to a little boy. That was the same effect that made Lance want to become a magician.
You can purchase appearing candles, learn dove magic, and silk/cigarrette/card manipulation, but you cannot replicate his signature act. It's impeccable, perfect. His claim is true in the video, he learned the trick very young, and has been modifying it over these years. There are about 4-5 videos of it on the internet, and it's different each time.
