Matthew Laslo's "Magic Now"

  • Whidbey Island Center for the Arts 565 Camano Avenue Langley, WA, 98260 United States (map)

Matthew Laslo, who makes his television debut this summer on “Penn & Teller: Fool Us”brings his award-winning magic and illusions to WICA!  “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” is a popular TV series that features some of the world’s finest magicians performing their best tricks in front of a live, Las Vegas audience.  Matthew was the youngest performer chosen from hundreds of contenders for a show that airs Aug. 31st, 2016 at 8:00pm on the CW network.

At just 15 years old, Laslo is an award-winning, accomplished performer who brings a youthful, fresh approach to the art of magic. He performs both close-up and grand illusions that thrill audiences of all ages. Matthew fell in love with the art of magic at seven years of age and has since worked hard to hone his skills by regularly performing whenever and wherever he can.  At nine years of age, he filled in for a magician that cancelled for a local event and he’s been hooked ever since.  In 2013 he launched his first full-length illusion show and regularly performs for sold out houses.  

For his 2016 summer tour he is thrilled to present his new show, “Magic Now.”  “I am using more current and relatable props alongside my favorite updated classics of magic. I want my show to reflect what is relevant for audiences today. Magic is an art form that demonstrates that life is not always what it seems.  It makes people believe in the impossible and brings you into the wonderful world of the imagination,” says Laslo. "There is a level of sophistication to what I am doing right now that fits my audiences that is usually 3/4 adults, but of course it’s great for all ages." Joining him is his lovely and talented assistant Kate Fetherolf.  

“Magic Now” is high-energy entertainment, with lots of comedy and audience participation.  A recent reviewer wrote, “Loved Matthew Laslo’s magic show! I was expecting a well done amateur performance and got a Vegas quality show!”
