"Oh behalf of Makk's Sweet Shop owner and employees, we would like to take the time out and thank you for the amazing job you provided at our 2nd year anniversary celebration. All of our young people and adults were amazed with the magic tricks and balloons you provided for our guests. Your service was so greatly appreciated that I look forward to spreading the word to other family members and friends about the great work that was performed by you. There is much hard work and dedication put into the production you provided and it left everyone with smiles on their faces. Hats off to Magical Fun and we look forward to working with you in our future endeavors. Thank you, thank you, thank you once again from Makk's Sweet Shop!!"

"Dear Mr. Levy, You were the hit of our party. We received so many notes and they all raved about the magician. You did a marvelous job and we thank you for coming." Mrs. Dan Huffer
" We had a large party for our Parents and hired Mr. Levy to come entertain us. He was incredible, and everyone (family and guests) commented on his performance as EXCELLENT. He was great with the young children and guests felt welcome, laughing along with having a fun time. He also is a comedian too. He has a great sense of humor. He made the party fun, and we couldn't ask for a better performance. I will definitely hire Laurence again to perform at any events in the future. I will recommend him anytime. " The Hochman, Nuell, Meyerhardt and Reid Family.
"Thanks very much for the evening's entertainment Laurence,I'd be happy for you to publish my comments:Everything went exactly as planned, a real professional - Laurence arrived a few minutes early, and went to work immediately. We were alternately amazed at his tricks, and laughing at his jokes (well OK, there were a few groans too) but it was great personalized entertainment. He had the knack of making sure that the birthday girl got the most attention (much kudos for me!) but also saw that nobody got left out, everybody got a turn to be tricked. It was tasteful, quickfire, funny and we loved it. I lost count of the people that said "Wow that was a great idea!" I'd have no hesitation in hiring him again."Dave Hawley
" Laurence - How can I begin to tell you what a wonderful time we all had at the 30th Wedding Anniversary party we recently held at our home... The great fun you brought to everyone with the Magic Show you presented to our family and friends really added to the evening. We had over 55 people there (adults and kids!) all in awe of the wonderful tricks, laughing at the crazy jokes, and just loving the fun of your super showmanship!

People talked long into the night as to "How Did He Do That?" and also recalling their favorite pieces from the show.... Even today, five days after the party, I had a friend walk up to me to show me something and he said "Watch, Watch, Watch!" hahaha!! :) Adding our friends into the program made for especially great fun! We were delighted to add your special program to our celebration!

Thank you again for sharing your "Magical Touch" to our party! " Nancy & John Petrusek Troy, Missouri

"Dear Laurence, Thank you again for providing roving table magic for our Mom's memorial luncheon in the Central West End. Dorothy specified after being diagnosed with incurable cancer that there was to be no traditional funeral. Instead, we were to hold parties where her friends and family would have fun, and remeber her in a happy way. Your magic really helped make the event special.

The roving table magic, in addition to being great fun, made everyone feel special and really added a lot to the party. It got everyone engaged, and who can avoid smiling when balls disappear and cut rope is restored and the card you are thinking of appears? The gentle traditional magic was exactly what we wanted, and was carried out with great panache. I know that a number of the guests requested your card, and if we have occasion for another event with many guests, we hope that you are again available.

(several days later:) We have had dozens of thank you notes, and second only to the memorabilia gift sacks, the Magic is most consistently mentioned by the guests. Rave reviews. They really loved it." Harry Blair and Mary Sorrells

Dear Laurence, "WOW! WHAT A FUN TIME! to keep the attention and laughter going with five year olds and adults at the same time.... that's MAJIC! great job Laurence! my family was very impressed with you, we had so much fun, and my grandaughter is still laughing about all the STUFF that you kept pulling out of your mouth!! great job!! thanks for the fun!! " Marla (5 year old's birthday party)
Hi Mr. Levy,
"Thanks so much for meeting us at the park to perform your show. The kids absolutely loved it!!!! I loved how you catered the show for the age group (6 year old girls). Not only did the girls enjoy the show, but I am still getting comments from the parents on how much they enjoyed it too. It was wonderful how you had the girls participate in many of your amazing tricks (it was also funny having the grown-ups participate too!). If you ever need a positive reference, just let me know!
Thanks again," Brandi Fisher
Hi Laurence, You were the highlight of the day. I hope the following will give others a sense of what to expect:

Laurence performed at my parents house for a small group of family members for Dad’s 80th birthday. My Dad had just returned home from the hospital from having knee surgery, so he was not very mobile. He couldn’t leave the house, and I wanted to do something special for his 80th. Well, I could not have come up with a better idea! I had contacted Laurence by phone a week or two earlier, and told him what the situation was (in my dad’s house, small audience, 80th birthday, etc) and he said he could tailor a performance for 30 minutes, an hour, or anywhere in between. He mentioned what kind of stuff he would do, and it sounded good to me.

Well, it is not often that expectations are exceeded as much as they were that day. He was 10 times better than I even expected. The life of the party! Everyone really enjoyed it. The age range of the group was 23 to 80…He performed what he called “close up” magic, involving all 6 people in the room. And, on a Sunday, the exact day of my Dad’s birthday, as well.

I would hire him again for any size group, he was absolutely fantastic!!!

Don Ancona, President/Owner, MRI Network

"Laurence, - It was a pleasure meeting you. Your show was a great addition to our party. You related well to kids and adults. Peter enjoyed the show … and especially enjoyed his role as your assistant. I will keep your information on file for future reference. Thank you for adding enjoyment to my son’s party. Sincerely, Billy Busch
" Dear Laurence, Katy's party was a huge success. We had almost all the parents say how outstanding the magic show was. Katy had a blast. Aly and her best friend have decided that they want you to perform at their graduation party in June. Thank you again for making her party a huge success. As always you are amazing, and wonderful at it." Emilie (5 year old's birthday party)
"Although a little tardy in our response, please rest assured that we were absolutely more than delighted with your performance of amazing magic for our family gathering.

From the youngest (age 6) to the oldest (age 72) we were all entertained both by the humorous banter and the magical tricks that kept us laughing and guessing "How'd he do that?". Since there were only 10 of us we each had a close-up seat for keen observation, and still we had no clue as to how you caused certain surprises to occur. However, later in the evening, following much discussion and guessing, we finally came to a unanimous conclusion . . . why, of course, it was just MAGIC.

We thought you might like to know your teach-in turned out to be a wonderful experience for the children. Ages 6, 7, and 8 have taken their newly acquired skills and their magic tricks home to Phoenix and Seattle to share with their friends and classmates. Age 10, who is autistic and was hesitant to be a part of the teach-in, later learned the magical secrets from a sibling and two cousins and we are overjoyed to say is now sharing magic with summer camp friends.

If, in the future, we are ever in need of magical entertainment we would certainly like to avail ourselves of your service. Additionally, if we could ever be of assistance to you in the form of a reference, please feel free to share our comments and experience - we are confident that everyone with the good fortune to enjoy your magical moments will be just as delighted as we were!

Best regards,
Donald and Eileen Cognata

" My summer camp group of 23 kids, all with hearing loss, had a great time with Magical Fun!

Thanks again for a great afternoon! " Meghan Cohen, Teacher, CENTRAL INSTITUTE FOR THE DEAF
"What an exciting and entertaining performance you gave to our Board of Directors. You certainly added that special touch we were looking for to get our Board Members enthused.

"What a joy having you at our commencement reception ! You were just what we needed to have this event be a lot of fun for our graduates. We had approximately 200 people...and I marveled at how you engaged the young and old in amazement and wonderment.

Thank you for helping us make this a very special event for our students." Ms. Carol Harp, School of Communications, Webster University
" A note to say thank you so much for performing magic at the Springfield History Museum event. Your performance was a treat for everyone attending and an extra spark of entertainment for the evening" Jean Wehr Springfield History Museum.
Dear Mr. Levy – "Thanks a million for performing last Friday at Union Hill Day School in KansasCity. I realize it can’t be easy to entertain a large group of preschoolers, but you kept their attention, and they had a great time. Several of them are still talking about your pet skunk! It was wonderful to see my son and his friends having such a great time. We look forward to having you perform again in the future, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a quality magic show at a very reasonable price. Thanks again!" Mrs. Jocelyn Rivard Kansas City, Missouri
"Laurence: Regarding your performance the night of our Annual Gal's Gala I can sum up my comments in one word, "Fantastic". I don't know how entertainment for our program could have been any better. Your rapport with the all-ladies audience was the perfect combination of professionalism and joviality. Your ability to engage multiple generations truly demonstrated your love for the theater and the smooth presentation honed by countless hours of practice. I still can't figure out how you got my $5 into the can of nuts.

Everyone had fun. Everyone enjoyed the show. Everyone left the event laughing and talking about all the magical fun. I would be happy to recommend your service to other groups pending your request. Thank you again for a wonderful evening.

Keep The Faith" Rev. Doug Kaufman - Senior Pastor: Friedens UCC

Dear Laurence, "Last night's events were fantastic! The talent you hired was all top notch and amazing (NOTE Magical Fun provided a Face Painter, Balloon Artist, and Juggler). So many families commented on the "wow" factor that each performer brought to our event. I appreciate all you did to make it happen!

You were amazingly timely in calling me back, keeping me informed, and connecting me with any other resources I mentioned an interest in, all while being creative with the limited budget. You went above, and beyond and made everything a cinch for me.

The PTO members and administration of the school were so impressed and want us to use your services in the future whenever possible. The event was far more attended than ever before, and we expect it will grow due to the services you provided. Thanks again for a job well done!" London DeMare - Webster Groves PTO

"Thanks for doing such a great job at our Fall Festival. You really entertained the kids and adults alike. We look forward to having you at next year's event." Shari Miskov, Holy Infant Church - Fall Festival Committe

"Mr. Levy, You were wonderful. My family, the old ones, as well as the young ones, loved you. Magically, along with a sense of charm, and what a personality. If to judge by grade, you deserve an "A" Plus ! Funny part is, since I had never looked for a magician before, I didn't know, what to look for. You were the answer to that unknown. Definitely now knowing, what I was looking for! Thank you so much :) Kimberly Bonney - Bonney Family Reunion

Senior Shows

"Dear Laurence,"Thank you for your Magical entertainment at Parkside Retirement Living at our July birthday party yesterday. Our group of 50 community members plus some family and staff truly enjoyed your performance. We are still baffled on how you were able to have water ostensibly appear out of nowhere, how you could make the ropes become short or long, and the trick with the $5 bill which appeared to go up in flames right in front of our eyes.

Add to this your sense of humor and comedy, and it made for a very enjoyable show. The best compliment to your show was that at the end of the show, no one was leaving. I think they were wanting even more. That is the true test of if our group at Parkside enjoys entertainment—if they are left wanting more! (You noticed they weren’t leaving.)

Again, Laurence, many thanks for your time and talent."

Betty Schippers, Director of Independent Living Activities, PARKSIDE RETIREMENT LIVING

Dear Laurence,"I wanted to send a big THANK YOU to you for the fun evening. Every member
enjoyed your show. For other groups considering you, I only have this to say:

If you are having a club or business gathering, or any occasion where you are looking for fun filled entertainment, Laurence Levy is the guy to book!His magic show is filled with corney (he calls bad) jokes and puns, and he performs some really good magic tricks.

Our group, St Peter Parish 50 Plus Club had him perform at our program for the evening, and he
was wonderful! He started the evening by reaching into his coat sleeve while declaring "I have nothing up my sleeve" pulling out a sign with the word "nothing" printed on it. The fun began from there.

His banter is clever. He encourages audience participation, and even has the
audience "vote" on the quality of his bad jokes. It was a very entertaining evening, full of laughs and magic.

We are really looking forward to having him back again." RoseRoss - St. Pete Parish 50 Plus Club

"Laurence, - Thank you so much for a great performance! With 31 children, and 30 adults you did a great job keeping everyone entertained. I was told over, and over how wonderful the program was. My boss said 'We will have him again. That was excellent'. I will highly recommend you to others. Awesome Job! My residents are still questioning me about the water! Sincerly, Judy Capriglione MCAD - DuBourg House Residence

"TASK thanks you for putting on a super magic show at our camp. Over 100 campers and 140 counselors enjoyed the program. It was entertaining to all especially how you involved the campers on 'stage'.

Thanks for your time and talent and for sharing it with the TASK campers." Ms. Deb Fruend, Team Activities for Special Kids (TASK)
" It was great to have you perform for our SHHH (Self Help for Hearing Persons). Our group is made up of hearing impaired persons, as well as those with cochlear implants.

Other Entertainment

Comments: A Webster University Instructor on healthcare and issues with Big Pharma planned to give a lecture to his class (Masters in Health Admin) which dealt with the topic of how some of the government rules and regulations seem to work like magic. He wanted, as a special flare to his presentation, to have magic performed at various points in his talk to illustrate his points. Below are his comments:

"It was a great event! Thanks Laurence for showing up early to go over the presentation with me, and help calm my nerves. I've never added such a wonderful visual entrapment before to a presentation, but your custom routine was amazing. I truly appreciated the pre-work you put in to understand the concept of my lecture, and also the flare that you added with the custom magic that you provided to match my topic needs. The class was awestruck by you, and I'll be reaping the praise for your performance for the rest of the year! Healthcare policy is a tough topic for a Master's degree program, but you helped me to break my concepts down into bite sized visual acts that will remain with my class for a long time." Gabriel M. Logan BA RRT-NPS Respiratory/Pulmonary Function Manager Missouri Baptist Medical Center

"We wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your help in making the 'Spring Parade of Magic' a huge success. We had nothing but great comments and reactions about the shows and your pre-show entertainment. You put the audience in a great mood for the show.." Mr. Terry Richison Co-Chairman Spring Parade of Magic
(One Year Later)" Laurence 'Nothing Up My Sleeve' Levy performed close-up magic in the theatre lobby before the program. I always enjoy watching this man work. He knows how to draw in a crowd, and certainly knows how to entertain them." Harry Machin, Jr. Scribe Ring One International Brotherhood of Magicians.
" Hi Laurence,
Thank you so much for coming out to The Muny for our opening night of 90 Years Of Muny Magic! Our audience loved watching you perform your magic tricks. You really made the evening a success by keeping the patrons entertained before they went into the theatre. You had so many people standing around you participating in your show, we know we made a great choice having you here.We would love to have you back! Look forward to working with you again. Thank you," Susie Joffe, Promotions Coordinator, MUNY
(2nd year)" Hi Laurence, Thank you so much for coming out to our event last night. I know the audience loved watching your magic. I hope you were able cool down afterwards. Having you perform at The Muny was wonderful! Every time you are a part of our Pre-Show Events you have a huge crowd around you laughing, and clapping a lot at the end. Your Magical Fun is truly a show in itself! Thanks again," Susie Joffe, Promotions Coordinator, MUNY
(3rd year) Dear Laurence, What a pleasure it was to have you entertain at the Muny for the pre-show entertainment for Mary Poppins. This is the 3rd year in a row we have had you perform. I noticed from the time you started, to when you finished, you had group after group of enthusiastic children and adults who all clapped and laughed and were wonderfully entertained. We look forward to having you back again next year. Regards, Susie Joffe, Promotions Coordinator, MUNY
(4th year) "Dear Laurence, Thank you for coming out to be a part of our PNC Arts Alive Pre-Show Festival at Lichtenstein Plaza at The Muny! Your magic show was a huge hit among the audience that we drew for our Sunday night performance of Tarzan. I noted how great you are with kids of all ages, and it warmed my heart to see you entertain the man and his adult special needs daughter. She was laughing and so was her father. Your natural gift for entertainment and your love for what you do is apparent to everyone who circles around to see the tricks that you perform. You sure do draw an enthusiastic crowd and not a single person left your show without a great big smile on their face. Thank you again for putting on a great show! Sofia Caito, The Muny
(5th year) Dear Laurence "Nothing Up My Sleeve" Levy ,
Thank you for coming out to The Muny to be a part of our PNC Arts Alive Pre-Show Festival at Lichtenstein Plaza. Your magic show was a huge hit among the audience that we drew for our several performances of The Wizard of Oz. Five years later, and you're still putting smiles on the faces of everyone you perform in front of. Your natural gift of being able to entertain kids of all ages (and parents, too) is truly admirable. You sure do draw an enthusiastic crowd and what more fitting of a show than The Wizard of Oz to have a magician come out to perform! (Although we must say, your magic tricks are much more impressive than Professor Marvel's). Thank you, again for putting on a great show! We look forward to having you again next year.
Sofia Caito, The Muny

Switzerland Magic Reviews

Hi - We all enjoyed meeting Laurence on our recent trip to Switzerland. He made the trip truly magical! Laurence is a talented magician and entertainer. His love of what he does was evident. He would brighten up any gathering with his fun banter and sleight of hand. Susan and Lael Kellett
On a recent trip to Switzerland and Northern Italy my family and I, along with other members of the group, were entertained by Laurence Levy.
Laurence is a highly skilled magician, has a wonderful personality, and has great rapport with children. We looked forward to each day of the trip, hoping that Laurence would either entertain the entire group of 40 travelers, or go from table to table at dinner, amazing us with his unlimited bag of magic tricks.It was a real pleasure to be in his company.Steve Nisenson
I had the pleasure of traveling to Switzerland with Laurence Levy in late August of 2015. He kept the entire group entertained with his mystical magic of card tricks and string acts and multiplying balls. He always managed to mystify the group and to put a smile on all our faces. I loved having him on the trip along with all his antics to keep us entertained throughout the trip whether it was a special performance for the group or for just our table at dinner.
Great job Laurence!

While dining in Lucerne, Switzerland my wife and I had the good fortune to be entertained by the humor and magic of Laurence Levy, an artist and genius of his trade. Mr. Levy's gift is his ability to personally interact with his audience while, at the same time, displaying amazing feats of magic. Our chance meeting proved to be a wonderful and enchanting evening of enjoyment.Bill Seckington

Scotland Magic Review

SHOW at Ballachulish Hotel - Ballachulish, Scotland

Magical Fun ! Wonderful, fun and witty magic show that enthralled the audience. How did he do that was the comment from the audience.
Entertaining for young and old from across the globe.
Great Magical Presentation. Simone
Laurence, Loved the card tricks, replicating and disappearing rubber balls and scarfs and, of course, those puns! ?? A very entertaining show, thoroughly enjoyable evening. Dave Graham
Scotland - Superb
. I have been privileged to see the finest close up magicians at work, including many times at the Magic Castle (we live in L.A.). Mr. Levy is a match for any of them, even those that you see on "America's Got Talent." Bruce Givner
Laurence is an amazing magician and can entertain anywhere, even when on vacation in a strange country with untrained assistants. Some really unbelievable tricks, and very entertaining! He is FANTASTIC!!! -Iris Korus
We had the pleasure to watch a magic show performed by Laurence Levy during our tour of Scotland in May and June of 2017.

After a long day of sightseeing, Laurence provided an amazing magic show with a combination of dazzling card tricks, sleight of hand tricks, and enjoyable jokes. We are able to figure out some tricks by other magicians, but Laurence's tricks contain unique twists that make us still wonder how he did it. Don't miss an opportunity to catch his show. You'll be thoroughly entertained!

Travelled all the way to Scotland to see Laurence. Actually we were on a bus tour and Laurence performed for the tour one night. The show was very entertaining, and the magic was amazing! Can't wait to take my grandkids to see him at Amigos in Kirkwood. Bob Lewis
