Lar performed at East Lake Woodlands Country Club last Saturday night and he was Outstanding!! We advertised the evening with "prepare to be amazed" and Lar did not disappoint! We will definitely invite him back again!
I just hosted a retirement party for my dear friend. I wanted the party to be a special, memorable event. Lar was the perfect touch! He mingled among my guests all evening and they all thought he was great. He finished the evening with a grand finale that he created just for my friend and the whole group was fascinated and thoroughly entertained. It's been a week and my guests are still talking about it. I would highly recommend Lar for any special gathering that needs that extra something!
Laurence Francis performed close-up magic during a 3 hour birthday party.
The variety of tricks was very good, and he did a good job of smoothly transitioning from one group to the next throughout the evening. No one was able to figure out how the tricks were pulled off, which sparked great conversation during and after the party.
His presence allowed all attendees to be included in the evening’s events! The birthday girl was given a special performance at the end of the evening as the grand finale.
Overall, a great performance! I would recommend Laurence for any special event.
Laurence was a great pick for our company's event! We loved having him and will invite him back for another upcoming event in a few weeks. He did several mind tricks that were amazing and was also able to relate those tricks to the audience. Our guests loved him - they were all getting involved, participating, and were amazed.
Laurence did an amazing job entertaining our corporate dinner party. With many skeptics in the crowd he blew us away with his talents! He left everyone completely amazed!
Laurence was amazing to work with and all our clients LOVED his performance. He was super flexible and made great suggestions for our event. A pleasure to work with!
I would strongly recommend Laurence for your professional event. He put on a brilliant show for 10 of our clients in a professional setting and yet ensured everyone had a lot of fun.
I plan to refer other colleagues and friends to Laurence for future opportunities.
We hired Lar for our daughter's Sweet 16 party. He was captivating and quite the entertainer. Lar definitely mesmerized us all and the girls are still taking about each trick he did. He can cater to any age group or size of audience. He is quite personable and that was portrayed throughout his act. Lar's passion for his work is evident and permeated throughout the room. That morning will be memorable for years to come.
Response from Laurence Francis - The Mind Magician:
Thank you for the very nice review, I really do appreciate it.
Lar appeared at our country club and put on a spectacular performance! Much of the audience had no idea how he did what he did! Wonderful evening!!
We went to see Lar not knowing what to expect. But I must say it was an incredible show! I have no idea how he knew what was written down, folded up and stuffed in an envelope or what color ball my friend had pulled from the bag. But he did! He was funny and very entertaining that the time went by so quickly.
Merlin's Theater hired Lar for our January public show at our theater. Lar is a professional and delighted our audience with a very well thought out Mind Reading show.
We will hire Lar back to perform sometime in the future.

We are very happy with Lar's performance and the closing act was simply awesome! Thank you
No, you won't be seeing this headline on the 11:00 PM news but there were screams during his performance. Shouts of "How did he do that?" rang through the hall. For an audience that has seen some top notch performers in the past, the response was high praise indeed. Congrats Lar on giving us an entertaining evening.
Had a great time at the Tampa Pitcher Show. It was so much fun to see the Mind-reader extraordinaire probe into peoples' brains for the entertainment of the crowd. Would like to see another show for sure.
Lar was very entertaining and kept the audience engaged and curious about how he could read their minds. Students loved the act!
Have seen Lar perform many times. It is always a mind blowing, entertaining good time. He incorporates his skill, sense of humor and personality to amaze and entertain you.
This is a must see show.So interactive,walking around stealling you very thoughts and repeating them back to you.Leaving everyone in the room with blank stares and open mouths.All this is wrapped around a wonderful playful sense of humor and delightful British accent.No one is made a fool,just believers in the imposssible.I would have him back again and again,so intriguing.I have seen my share of talent in my life but not like this.Everything is done in the now, and right infront of you.How does he do it? This guy is gonna be on TV soon,I can just see it. The bigger the audience the more fun.I would rate him with 5 stars in all catagories. I am ready to see his next show,can't wait.
What to Expect
"It's not enough that your next event be a success - it needs to be a FANTASTIC success, anything less is unacceptable.
Achieving that goal is a daunting task though, and a major component of that success is in bringing the right person on board to entertain your guests.
You need an entertainer who you can have the utmost confidence in, someone who is professional in their approach, experienced, and who you know will deliver an amazing show that your guests will love.
That's where I come in.
When you choose me as your featured entertainer I guarantee that I will be 100% dedicated towards making that happen. The success of your event is my primary goal and my focus is on providing you with the best service possible.
You will know that I am as invested in the success of your event as you are. I will work with you to provide the perfect show for your guests. I will ensure that creating your event is as hassle free as possible so that your efforts are rewarded with a brilliant show that far exceeds your own expectations and absolutely thrills your guests."
Born in Birmingham, England, Laurence trained as a Computer Programmer and Software Analyst and in 1996 formed an IT company providing sales and software support to US companies looking to break into the UK market.
Laurence’s passion though wasn’t computers - it was (and always had been) Magic. From a young age, performing on stage was what he really wanted to do and in 2006 Laurence sold his company and relocated to Florida with his wife Iris to pursue his passion and become a full-time entertainer.
Ten years later that goal has well and truly been achieved. The ability to read people’s minds and influence their thoughts is an extraordinarily rare talent. Rarer still is the ability to entertain and enthrall an audience as you do so. It is that ability which has made Laurence one of the most sought after entertainers in Florida having performed his 'MASTERMIND' show for numerous companies, clubs, organizations and theaters throughout Florida.
"My career in Magic is in many respects very similar to my career in IT. If you think about it the human mind is essentially a 'thinking' computer, capable of fantastic things. Yes, as individuals we have our own thoughts, feelings and emotions but collectively we share common traits and patterns of thought because we have all been programmed to think and act according to certain established social norms."
"By observing people and recognizing these patterns of thought I am able assess how someone will act, how they will think, and the kinds of decisions they might make in certain situations. Understanding HOW people think (and more importantly WHY people think the thoughts they do) is a massive part of how I do what I do."
Additional Booking Notes
Paranormal phenomena such as Mind-reading, Telepathy, ESP and Precognition have always held a special fascination in the human psyche. Imagine how fantastic it would be to witness these phenomena LIVE. Better still, imagine if you could actually experience them at first hand for yourself. That premise is the crux of Laurence's show.
Laurence is the consummate showman and entertainer and he combines his own mental abilities and people reading skills with elements of theater, comedy, magic and high drama to create an astonishing stage show demonstrating the power of the mind.
Audience participation and engagement are key components of Laurence's show. Everything in the show is designed to provide an interactive entertainment experience for the audience so that they become an integral part of the events that unfold on stage.
Laurence's show can fit into into virtually any type of event you may be planning (i.e. banquets, parties, weddings, anniversaries, corporate functions, fundraisers, etc). If your event doesn't have any formal staging then don't worry, Laurence will provide all the necessary lighting, sound and staging you need to make your event a success.
CLOSE-UP & WALKAROUND
Laurence's close-up set is the ideal choice for wedding receptions, parties or indeed any kind of social gathering where a stage performance is not required. Laurence will mingle with your guests performing for them in small groups creating a fun and exciting shared experience that serves to bring everyone together.
There will be a real buzz and an air of excitement among your guests which helps to 'break the ice' and generates the perfect atmosphere for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves.
When you are planning a corporate event such as a conference, annual dinner, awards banquet, exhibition or trade show Laurence will partner with you to add a new dimension to proceedings and ensure that your company is seen in the most positive light.
Laurence's skills as a Corporate Magician and Mentalist are the perfect vehicle to interact with your clients, prospects and employees in a fun and exciting way that will maximize engagement and impact.
No two business are alike and Laurence will work with you to define your needs customizing the show to deliver your company message, further your business goals, assist with a product launch and more.
Being able to build a crowd at your trade shows is a crucial element to your company's success - people go where the action is, they literally follow the crowd. If you can't build (and sustain) a sizable crowd at your stand then people will wander off and visit someone else's stand - that's the last thing you want to see happen.
With Laurence on your team at your next trade show you can be certain that your stand will really 'stand out' (excuse the pun). He will work closely with your sales staff to craft a custom presentation specific to your company, one that will educate people about your products and services in a wonderfully entertaining and memorable way. Magic is the perfect medium for engaging people, holding their attention, and articulating your company's message.
Laurence's presentations will generate the right energy and the right vibe on your stand. He will create the feelgood factor you need to firstly make people notice your stand and secondly to draw them to it. This steady stream of traffic will build the huge crowd you need thereby increasing your company's visibility and presence and maximizing opportunities for your salespeople to engage with more prospective clients than ever before.
