"We hired Chris to perform at my son's 25th birthday party. There was a variety of ages there and also several adults on the autism spectrum. Chris was a hit with everyone. His magic was outstanding and he was kind and thoughtful to everyone attending. My son loved having him there! I would definitely recommend Chris; he will not disappoint."

     - Jill B.


"Chris performed at a clients New Year’s Eve party for 150 guests at their home in Westport. Everybody was blown away! He mingled about the party doing his magic and floored everyone he engaged with. Seeing is not believing - because you can’t believe what’s happening right in front of your eyes. I was present for a few of his interactions, and was shocked. Myself and my crew still find ourselves still talking about his talent weeks later. The client was equally thrilled - their guests raved about him during and following the event. They have already requested him again for next year. The party was a great success and the guests had a great time - he played a big part in that."

"I am writing today to recommend my former student and current entertainer Chris Lengyel. Chris has always been very passionate in life and has used that to entertain those fortunate enough to see him perform. Over the years I have seen him perform magic in many different capacities. Whether it was mesmerizing his fellow students in the lunchroom by making a coin go right through a solid table or memorizing hundreds of guests by having a chair levitate in front of their eyes Chris has a knack for entertaining. Chris is a hard working young man who has more heart than most. While he
has picked a path in life that is by no means easy I am sure that he will be able to succeed through both unwavering passion and determination. He has the ability to perform confidently in front of both adult and child alike. With that said I am happy to give my recommendation to Chris. He is a
honest hardworking young man who knows what he wants in life. Those fortunate enough to get to work with him will come to see him the way I have and be happy for the opportunity."
     - Nicholas F. Varanelli, Naugatuck High School, Naugatuck, CT

"It has been my pleasure to know Chris Lengyel for the past three years. In that time, I have watched him practice his close magic whenever he was able; at social gatherings, during breaks while working for our performance troupe, etc. This is the hallmark of a dedicated magician. I have also seen videos of his performances on the streets of New York and in arenas as well.
It was based on these observations that the production company which I co-own hired Chris to perform at our winter event, Her Majesty’s Mid Winter Revels. I can say with complete honesty that his performance exceeded expectations. Chris’ stage magic absolutely pleased the crowd. His stage
presence, however, is in my opinion what sets him apart. His banter is witty and amusing. He kept the
crowd fully engaged, delighted, in fact, throughout his performance. Indeed, he made a veteran
performer break character with laughter!
Based on my observations and his performance at our event, I am absolutely comfortable in
recommending Chris to other producers. I am certain that he will not disappoint."

"Chris Lengyel as amazing, funny, magical and great to have at ExecuNet's company outing. I thoroughly enjoyed his act and so nice to see something like this after Ameirica's Got Talent aired.

His act will definitely make it on this show.

Thank you Chris and also Tony Vlahos ExecuNet's CMO who was responsible for bringing his talent to ExecuNet's event!"

     - Donna Mae Gardiner-Spano, CT

"Today my best friend was babysitting my daughter and they went out to Wendy's to grab a bite to eat. My daughter started doing her "magic trick" and making her food disappear. Then a magician came up to them and showing her real live magic tricks. She's never been to a magic show and I can't tell you how much this made her whole night. Thank you !! If we're ever looking for a magician I know who to call."

     - Ashley B. Ansonia, CT

"Best magic show we’ve ever seen! Very interactive, funny and most of all full of surprises. We tried to follow the tricks and see if we could guess what was happening and we were left stumped."

     - Amanda B.

     - Charlene W.,  North Haven, CT

"The Alumnae Office of Cedar Crest College, located in Allentown, PA, recently hired Chris Lengyel to perform a 1.5 hour mainstage show at our annual Reunion Weekend. This production was very well received by our audience which included members of all ages. Chris is a talented magician and performer, equally as skilled with humor and professionalism as he is with illusions. We in the Cedar Crest College Alumnae Office recommend Chris to any venue or organization looking to hire a magician."  

     - Carie Moore, Cedar Crest College, Allentown, PA

This letter is being written in support of Chris' job performance and we would encourage him to pursue his career as a performing magician/artist. We believe you will find him to be very entertaining and engaging 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you."
