Seventeen-year-old Laslo is one of the youngest magicians on the international circuit. He has been performing since the age of 7 and locals fondly remember him as Matthew the Magician. He is an accomplished performer who brings a youthful, innovative approach to the art of magic. At 15 years old, Laslo made his national television debut on CW network’s “Penn and Teller: Fool Us” and impressed the duo with his originality and showmanship. In January of 2018, he was invited to perform for Chinas No. 1 television show, “The Amazing Magicians,” where he wowed 270 million viewers.
Magic Now is Laslo’s current illusion show that is filled with humor, awe and wonder with lots of audience participation, and great for the entire family. Joining him is his assistant Maria Bullock.
“I think it’s important for people to believe that anything is possible and be inspired to dream big. I hope that my show will do that,” Laslo said.
