Larry Greenberg Magician, Hynotist and Mentalist.
Larry had been entertaining audiences professionally for over fifteen years at private parties, corporate events, schools, fairs, festivals and resorts. Growing up in Teaneck, NJ, he witnessed his very first magic trick at the age of seven and starting performing professionally while still only a Senior in High School. He has had the privilege of entertaining audiences from all walks of life. From corporate affairs in NYC to trade shows in Alaska to theme parks throughout Japan.
Until a few years ago, his shows always consisted of comedy magic, sleight of hand and mentalism. But then he saw his first stage hypnotist and realized that hypnosis is completely real, after becoming professionally certified in hypnosis, he put together an incredible show performing it over the last few years. He obviously loves what he does and is not sure who has more fun him or his audiences!
Larry currently reside in South Florida. When not performing he can be found training for a marathon, jumping out of an airplane or napping on the beach.

Bill Bryson was born in the middle of the American century—As one of the best and funniest writers alive, he is perfectly positioned to mine his memories of a totally all-American childhood for 24-carat memoir gold. Like millions of his generational peers, Bill Bryson grew up with a rich fantasy life as a superhero. In his case, he ran around his house and neighborhood with an old football jersey with a thunderbolt on it and a towel about his neck that served as his cape, leaping tall buildings in a single bound and vanquishing awful evildoers (and morons)—in his head—as "The Thunderbolt Kid."
Using this persona as a springboard, Bill Bryson re-creates the life of his family and his native city in the 1950s in all its transcendent normality—a life at once completely familiar to us all and as far away and unreachable as another galaxy. It was, he reminds us, a happy time, when automobiles and televisions and appliances (not to mention nuclear weapons) grew larger and more numerous with each passing year, and DDT, cigarettes, and the fallout from atmospheric testing were considered harmless or even good for you. He brings us into the life of his loving but eccentric family, including affectionate portraits of his father, a gifted sportswriter for the local paper and dedicated practitioner of isometric exercises, and OF his mother, whose job as the home furnishing editor for the same paper left her little time for practicing the domestic arts at home. The many readers of Bill Bryson’s earlier classic, A Walk in the Woods, will greet the reappearance in these pages of the immortal Stephen Katz, seen hijacking literally boxcar loads of beer. He is joined in the Bryson gallery of immortal characters by the demonically clever Willoughby brothers, who apply their scientific skills and can-do attitude to gleefully destructive ends.
