Award winning illusionist, youngest magician in history to receive The Merlin Award (the industry equivalent of an Oscar)
One of the world’s most celebrated illusionists, Rob Lake’s mindblowing illusions have dazzled and entertained millions broadcast across network television, in Times Square, on the Vegas strip, Atlantic City, and before sold-out audiences in casinos, arenas, and theatres worldwide. Over 80-million viewed his illusion performances on YouTube and Facebook.
His astonishing original illusions are uniquely presented as awe-inspiring storytelling on the grandest scale.
Named “The World’s Greatest Illusionist” by NBC and “The Top Illusionist in the World” by Caesars Entertainment, the world’s largest gaming organization, Rob is internationally renowned for his mesmerizing and award-winning illusion spectacular and sold-out engagements.
In 2008, Rob became the youngest magician in history to receive the holy grail of the magic world — the Merlin Award – as ‘International Stage Magician of the Year.’ This award is magic’s highest honor and the industry equivalent of an Oscar.
Rob has also served as magic consultant for network TV series, feature films, Broadway shows, world-famous theme parks, and has created illusions for today’s most famous magicians.
Rob’s magical effects can be seen in numerous theatrical productions across the globe including the smash hit musicals The Phantom of the Opera, and in over 1,000 productions of Disney’s Beauty & the Beast.
Over the last few years, Rob has headlined in venues around the world bringing his physics- and sometimes even death-defying illusions to audiences across the US, and on sold-out tours in Europe, Asia, The Middle East, and as the resident headliner for over three years at the iconic Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas.
In addition Rob Lake regularly makes magic for global brands and companies, magically launching products, making VIPs and CEOs appear from thin air, red carpet reveals and much more through his special event productions.
For 15 years, Rob has entertained the US troops and their families with annual shows and record-setting tours to military bases around the world.
In his daily life, Rob dedicates his time, his support and his voice to a cause he holds near and dear to his heart – Animal Rescue. In fact, his own furry companion Roger, a Yorkie mutt, was once a rescue dog, and has become a popular part of his show, as well.
