Comedy magician Nathan Burton made one of his competitors disappear Thursday.
Minutes after Murray Sawchuck and his wife, Khloe, arrived just before Burton’s 4 p.m. show at Saxe Theater in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, they were escorted out, he said.
“I had texted Nathan when we got there to let him know I was there. I think it’s respectful to let someone know,” said Sawchuck, a headliner at the Tropicana for almost two years.
Sawchuck said he was informed by a theater manager that “Nathan personally called me to have you escorted out.”
They left without incident, he said.
“I didn’t know we had a problem,” said Sawchuck. “We do now.”
Sawchuck said he loaned Burton a prop “from one of my illusions for a couple of months.”
Both Burton and Sawchuck were participants on different seasons of “America’s Got Talent.”
“This kind of thing is a shame, a little classless, but that’s just me,” Sawchuck said.
Calls to Burton for comment were not returned by deadline.
