Master illusionist and military advocate Rob Lake will be releasing an exclusive new special for Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE) on August 25. Lake, whose prolific career includes live performances, creative consultancy, design and planning, and residency at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, has been a long-time partner of AFE, providing high-quality entertainment for troops and their families for over a decade.
One of the world’s most celebrated illusionists, Rob Lake’s mind-blowing illusions dazzle and entertain millions across network television, and at live events in iconic locations like Times Square, the Las Vegas strip, Hollywood, Atlantic City, The Dubai Opera House, Atlantis Bahamas, and more. Rob regularly performs in front of sold-out audiences in casinos, arenas, and theatres in more than 45 countries worldwide, where his astonishing original illusions are uniquely presented as awe-inspiring storytelling on the grandest scale.
In 2008, Rob became the youngest magician in history to receive the “holy grail” of the magic world, The Merlin Awards’ ‘International Stage Magician of the Year.’ This award is magic’s highest honor and the industry equivalent of an Oscar.
Named “The World’s Greatest Illusionist” by NBC, Rob is internationally renowned for his mesmerizing and award-winning illusion spectacular. In addition to creating and designing his own illusions, Rob is a highly sought-after Architect of Illusion, serving as magic & illusion consultant, illusion designer, and creative consultant for multiple Broadway productions like Disney’s Aladdin, Harry Potter philharmonic arena tours, Sesame Street Live, and Walt Disney Imagineering. He also serves as the creative consultant and illusion designer for Adele’s Las Vegas Residency at Caesars Palace.
This virtual tour will be made available to military members and their families through the AFE website, https://armedforcesentertainment.com, starting on August 25, 2023. Rob dedicates time, support, and his voice to causes he holds near and dear to his heart – supporting members of the military and 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 shows, as well.
AFE has been committed to boosting the morale and well-being of service members and their families stationed overseas through world-class live events and performances since 1951.
