Meet Lawrence Hass, Ph.D., a celebrated magician
who is also a philosopher!
Lawrence Hass creates magic shows that are both entertaining and edifying. They 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.
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, where he spends many weeks each year in residence teaching magic Master Classes with Jeff McBride and Eugene Burger. When he is not teaching in Las Vegas, he travels nationally and internationally to offer lectures and workshops for magic groups and conventions 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 Magic Arts in Hollywood.
Lawrence is also an award-winning author or co-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, by the Associated Press and CanadaWest News services, on the Discovery Channel, National Public Radio, and 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 the recent podcast interview with him by Canadian social change leader David Peck at Face2Face, Episode 150.
