Introduction: Much of my magic is original and well suited to a family audience. I now do a virtual magic show on Zoom. This kind of show can be more intimate then a live performance, and less expensive. My magic is age specific, often more sophisticated for adult audiences. The birthday party can have a lot of participation if each kid has a computer or groups of kids are at one screen. For adult audiences, I use selected members of the audience (maybe the boss or the person to be honored) in comedic cabaret plots. I have a number of magical events often performed to appropriate music that features amazing and visual magic. Smaller cabaret performances feature considerable interaction between the magician and audience members. I have a segment of Chinese magic that folks find fascinating. My magic works well in cabaret shows, industrial shows and banquets, and house parties or birthday parties for adults or family audiences. Special magic maybe requested for your even: mind reading, precognition. For example the birthday person reads someone's mind or a ghost does some magic for us. I like creating my own magic often for a given audience, and performing it. I get to meet folks that I perform for and my performance is more intimate with the audience. Call me and tell me what you want.

I was at a party this past weekend and was blown away by magician Lawrence Lessner! He worked the crowd with with his delightful personality and skillful slight of hand. We were continually amazed by his tricks. Definitely added a wonderful element to party for people of ALL ages!

I communicated with this contractor on September 24th and he agreed to perform; however, the day before my event, I contacted him to finalize his arrival time and location and he stated that he never communicated with me before, didn’t remember ever talking to me. When I read to him the messages exchanged, he still didn’t acknowledge the communication or the messages via Thumbtack. See attached photo.

Lawrence was a pleasure to work with and he was able to interact with our guests and entertain with his magic in a crowded private New Years Eve house party.

10 STARS...Lawrence was great. The party we hosted included kids from 1 year old up to 56 years old. Everyone truly enjoy him. Lawrence had us trying to figure how HOW DID HE DO THAT? We will hire him for our next party. GREAT MAGIC SHOW.
