AIR DATE: March 1, 2012

He came to Las Vegas because he wanted to learn how never to be a victim of a huckster. It was the inspiration of his first book. Now Rick Lax of the Las Vegas Weekly is taking on a new challenge. Work seven jobs in seven days. He goes from being a street performer to a bathroom attendant to a casino executive. He joins us to share his latest experiences and maybe even teach us a card trick or two.
