LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – January 28, 2013 — Amazing Johnathan, who holds the record as the longest-running comic magician in Las Vegas history, has engaged the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK to produce and distribute his new Web TV show and podcast, “Burn Unit”.

“Burn Unit is going to be a show unlike anything seen before. To make it great, I wanted to work with a company who understood what it takes to produce a high-quality show that I and my fans would be proud of”, said Amazing Johnathan, “With the Vegas Video Network, I’ve found what I believe to be the most experienced and professional online production firm in Las Vegas. Get ready world, this is going to be crazy!”
