  • Luis Otero Penguin Live

    “Luis is a brilliant entertainer with a pack of cards. I have seen him on large stages and close up and his dynamic style always leaves the audience breathless.” – Jeff McBride

    “Recognized Latin-American artist. His vision of magic, from the deepest to the most superficial, their continuous studies, countless collaborations, and a lifetime of passion and work and magic, certainly place him in the spotlight of all those who love this art and make it prosper more and more. I really recommend his master lecture, far from being commercial, and focused on teaching, not just games, techniques, thoughts or ideas, but also a philosophy (almost become a way of life). No doubt who sees Luis Otero sees something different, fresh, original, entertaining and very magical.
    I’ve seen him work a hundred times. I’ve seen him succeed a hundred times! I shared, dialogued, studied and worked with him, and so, from the virtue of being able to speak in first person, I assure that Luis, Mr. Otero, is the ideal mirror for everyone who wants further progress in this beautiful art with is magic.” – Dani DaOrtiz
