Li Lau

"One Crazy China"

Li Lau, AKA "One Crazy China", performs what he likes to call 'bizarre entertainment' that features a uniquely daring blend of escapology and sideshow stunts with an added touch of mentalism for good measure. 

Based in Port Elizabeth, Li got his first opportunity to perform publicly as an escape artist in 2012 at a local Animal Welfare Society club meeting and never looked back.

An avid and long-time comic book fan, his interest in escapes and magic began early on in his youth and years later was piqued anew while living abroad in London after visiting the famous Davenports Magic Shop and inspired further still by renowned UK escape artists such as Jonathan Goodwin and David Straitjacket.

Over time, his interests grew even more upon discovering the fascinating world of the sideshow arts and delving into mentalism.

Li recently made his debut appearance at this year's National Arts Festival 2018 with "Carnival Sideshow (and other magical things)" which featured both himself and fellow magician and mentalist Brendon Peel.

Li is amongst the very few escape and sideshow artists in South Africa and continually strives to live up to being "One Crazy China"!
