I have been privileged to use his spectacular talents for a number of high profile events and I am always thrilled with the response from the clients and audience.

His act is phenomenal, his interaction with the crowd is great, and he provides a truly unique and ‘gasp-worthy’ style of entertainment.

A captivating entertainer

... whose unique combination of skills involving danger, escape and mental trickery are rarely seen on the African continent, and he's certain to keep audiences riveted to their seats.

His calmness and cool control on the stage stands in contrast to the reactions of shock, laughter and applause expressed by those who witness his remarkable demonstrations.

Passionate & dedicated to his craft

He is truly crazy and performs things that many dare to even try.

On the edge of your seat stuff!!!

I have seen Li up close eat glass, knock a nail into his nose and set a world record holding a flaming torch in his mouth.

Not only is he the real deal but make sure you take a change of underwear as the stunts go from bizarre to terrifying.

Death defying

Li Lau's mix of the fascinating, daring and bizarre brings them up close to the enchantment, danger and fascination.
