usually known as René Lavand, was a magician from Argentina specialising in close-up performance. He appeared in Ed Sullivan's and Johnny Carson's television shows as well as shows at Hollywood's Magic Castle.
After losing a hand at the age of 9 in a car crash, Lavand endured a gradual entry into the magic world, self-taught because, in his own words, "all books and techniques are for two-handed magicians". After working as a cashier in a bank, at the age of 32 he appeared in Buenos Aires' Tabarís Theater, following which his career took off, leading to world tours. The catchphrase he used to close several of his tricks is "No se puede hacer más lento" (Spanish for "it cannot be done any slower"), referencing the intentional slow pace at which he performs.
