The hardest part about being an aspiring performer these days is persuading Las Vegas that you have something new to WoW their slot-tugging aficionados.
That's why when I saw my son's latest act, I knew he had a winner. It's not just Mickey, it's Mickey Elvis. Note the karate stance, the pouting sneer, that bravado...

Don't be cruel. Thankyouverymuch.
