What Does a Mentalist Do?
If you haven’t heard of this particular genre before, a Mentalist is someone who combines close-up magic, comedy and mind manipulation to create a mesmerising, live entertainment act.
Mentalists are multi-skilled – some specialise in mind reading and thought manipulation, some offer hypnosis and some use magic tricks in their performance. Here are three performers, who specialise in the art of Mentalism! They are available to book for your parties and all of them are experienced performers, used to entertaining people at a wide range of events.
Jay’s carefully honed psychological skills have been developed over 20 years – and he is adept at ensuring his programme will suit any type of audience. His magic tricks, feats of memory and mind reading will be offered up to those who are keen to experience what is known as “the art of delightful deception”. Your guests will be stunned by his sleight of hand and his ability to read people (work out their reactions and thoughts).
Jay can also use Hypnosis and suggestion as part of his act – used to great effect for larger groups. Unassuming and charming, Jay has a light touch when it comes to engaging with an audience, but his act has a major impact. He really does leave guests with that “how did he do that!?” feeling. Jay is based in the Midlands, UK and has attended parties, corporate events, conferences, Gala dinners and major charity events in the UK and abroad and is a consummate professional when it comes to performance. For a mind bending evening of memorable fun – see for yourself what Jay can bring to the Party! View his profile here.
