We've enlisted comedians, some based here and others who spend their time on the road and come through Vegas, to share their recommendations on great places to dine in Sin City for a feature dubbed Comedian Confidential.

Mike Burton is known for being a energetic storyteller. His facial expressions mesmerize audience members. Burton has appeared on such shows as The Revolution and The Chew. He performs at the Improv at Harrah’s through Saturday night. Here he talks about what makes him nervous when people approach him while he's eating, where you can find him on most days in Vegas and why he doesn't remember his first trip to Vegas.

How often do you get to Las Vegas?
Not often enough. If you can't have fun in Vegas, you can't have fun.  

Do you remember your first trip to Vegas?
I don't remember my last trip to Vegas, so the first trip is a bit foggy. My memory isn't what it used to be. Next week, I will probably not remember I was here this week.

Do you have any favorite restaurants you like to visit here?
Mesa Grill and anywhere they recognize me and give me free food.

Do people approach you while you're dining out?
Sometimes. Then I have to figure out if it's because they saw my show or I owe them money.

What about nightlife? Do you ever go out after a show to unwind?
I go to Casa Fuente a lot to smoke a nice cigar and unwind. I'm usually there every day that I'm in Vegas.  

What was the first thing that shocked you in Las Vegas?
How easy it is to get credit, and what a bad idea that really is.  

What can we expect at your show?
Hopefully laughter.
