Reviews and Testimonials

"When we asked Larry Warshaw to help us entertain and educate over 1,000 Kiewit stockholders at our Annual Meeting, we had no idea of the breadth of his talents. In addition to his stunning audience-focused magic, he was able to weave the message of his illusions into the message of our meeting, which was Employee Engagement. Larry was the hit of the week, and will no doubt be a welcome addition to many future Kiewit events."

(Jon Swartzentruber, Vice President, Leadership Development, Kiewit Corporation, Omaha, Nebraska)

"I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for entertaining at the Gates holiday party. We have presented you for the past five years to our associates. Every year that you return to our holiday party you have developed new material, have grown, and have new marvels to introduce to our audience.

Both your walk-around magic and your stand-up act have allowed our associates to not only participate, but become the real STARS of the show. Your magic has been amazing and your illusions continue to bring wonder and joy to our event each year. We are proud to number you among our longest-playing entertainers!"

(Mark Cooper, Plant Manager, Gates Corporation, Boone, Iowa)

"I just wanted to drop you a note in the wake of your awesome after-dinner performance at our Corps of Engineers Leadership Program Graduation Party. My reputation was on the line, because after I had seen you perform at another event, I pushed hard to hire you for the evening's entertainment. Others involved with planning the party were all leery about a "magic show" for a party of grown-ups.  I promised and you delivered.  You got the crowd into a great mood and everyone was laughing....and they're still laughing about it one week later!  I have been in several conversations about you over the past few days, and I've overheard people talking about your baffling tricks.  We're all trying to figure out how you pulled the wool over our collective eyes.  Simply mind-boggling.  The standing ovation at the end was gratifying for me and testimony to your splendid performance. Thanks again!"

"I enjoyed working with you to arrange your performance for the opening night dinner.  You were a meeting planner's dream -- and I truly appreciated your attention to detail and our deadlines.  Of course, the responses from attendees to your performance were magical and it was a hit with all."

"Larry Warshaw has a reputation as a sleight-of-hand expert, but presentation is where he excels."

(Stu Lewis, The Linking Ring, Official Publication of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, November 2000).

"When clients called me to RSVP this year, many of them asked if you would be performing again. Your magic makes our event stand out from all other parties, and provides the perfect icebreaker for our guests. The wide variety of tricks in your repertoire kept everyone entranced all evening. I cannot wait to see what you bring to the party next year!"

(Jennifer Fenton, Bollinger, Ruberry & Garvey, Chicago, Illinois).

"Larry Warshaw provided the entertainment at our company holiday party. We have employees working at a number of locations so they don't all know each other well. Larry's magic was a very unifying force in the evening. He provided superb entertainment and had us all talking and laughing the rest of the evening. Larry definitely brought a level of class and entertainment to the party that would be hard to top. We will just have to ask him back next year!"

(Jim Tiehen, President, The Tiehen Group, Kansas City, Missouri).

"I hired Larry Warshaw to perform some magic at my friend's 40th birthday party. He actually performed within circles of people who were trying to "catch him" utilizing sleight of hand. Larry is very entertaining and was able to stay a step ahead of all of us. We were dumbfounded at the things Larry made appear and disappear. We could track where Larry was performing in the house by the sound of uproarious laughter and applause. All of us are still talking about Larry's performance."

(Jill Frost, Kansas City).

"Your performance at Elkay's 80th Anniversary Celebration was spectacular. The way you "wowed" the people with your "special kind of magic" was perfect. Moreover, I do appreciate your attention to detail by the way you so cleverly customized the tricks to Elkay. The "Elkay Card Trick" went over big.
You are the best!"

(Jean Tipton, Elkay Manufacturing, Oak Brook, Illinois).

"Thank you for your part in making our Program Managers Symposium dinner such a success. Our clients thoroughly enjoyed your performance. I especially wanted to let you know how much our guests enjoyed your magic -- not only was it amazing, but your presentation style was perfect for transforming strangers into acquaintances. You had people laughing and gasping all in the same breath!! Also, the creative way you made our corporate logo golf balls magically appear as gifts to our guests was spectacular, and a great way to tie in our earlier golf outing. In summary, you conveyed an image with which our Corporation was proud to be associated. I look forward to having you entertain at many future events!"

(William E. Donnell, Senior Vice President, Westport Insurance Corporation, Overland Park, Kansas).
