Meet Lawrence Hass, Ph.D., a celebrated magician
who is also a philosopher!
Lawrence Hass creates magic shows that mix astonishing, artistic magic with ideas that lift the spirit. He performs all across America and internationally at theaters, nightclubs, private parties, public conferences, art museums, magic conventions, universities, and corporate events. He also performs regularly in Las Vegas and at the World-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. His latest full-evening show is titled "Magical Life: An Evening with Lawrence Hass."
Beyond his busy performing schedule, Lawrence is also widely recognized as an inspirational teacher of magic. He holds the position of Associate Dean at the McBride Magic & Mystery School in Las Vegas, what the BBC has called "the most prestigious magic school in the world." When he is not teaching in Las Vegas, he travels nationally and internationally to offer lectures and workshops for magicians about how to perform with more artistry, excellence, and commercial success. In 2016, he was nominated, with Jeff McBride, for the Lecturer of the Year Award from the Academy of Magical Arts in Hollywood.
Lawrence is also an award-winning author of several international bestselling books for magicians, including Inspirations: Performing Magic with Excellence, Transformations, Deep Mental Mysteries, Gift Magic (co-author and editor), and The Show Doctor (with Jeff McBride). All of these books, and others, have been published by his Theory and Art of Magic Press.
Lawrence Hass's visionary approach to magic has been featured in leading international media, including The New York Times, USAToday, The Chronicle of Higher Education, the Associated Press, CanadaWest, the Discovery Channel, National Public Radio, South Korean Television, and in his recent TEDx Talk, "What is the Art of Magic?" For a deeper look at Lawrence and what has motivated his transformation from academic philosopher to full-time magician, check out two different podcast interviews with him by Canadian social change leader David Peck at Face2Face, Episode 150 and Face2Face, Episode 194.
