WHAT IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL MAGICIAN
A psychological magician (or mentalist), is an entertainer who does not perform what would be considered “normal magic”. Instead, he will demonstrate the more psychological aspect, without ever claiming any “psychic” ability. These skills are less about card tricks and more like demonstrations of psychology, influence, mind-reading, memory, hypnosis, suggestion, rapport and reading body language.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST
Simon sincerely believes that this form of entertainment should be accessible to all budgets and therefore keeps his price as low as possible. Every event can be assessed individually depending on location, number of guests and duration of performance. Weddings are expensive enough as it is and a lot of businesses see this as an excuse to exploit the happy couple even further! While this type of entertainment is certainly not a necessity at a wedding etc, it does add an extra memorable aspect to the day. Simon will listen to your requirements and make suggestions as to what would work best for your event.
WILL ANYTHING AFFECT THE PERFORMANCE
A live band or loud DJ/ disco will have a detrimental effect on this type of entertainment as it is almost impossible to perform to small groups of people when they are unable to hear you. So if there is to be a live band or disco, Simon would normally recommend another kind of entertainment and maybe a traditional magician.
DO YOU DO KIDS PARTIES
Unfortunately not. While i do my best to involve any children who happen to be at the various events where i perform, this type of entertainment is more suited to adults.
WHAT SORT OF THINGS WILL YOU DO
You can expect demonstrations of memory, influence, predictions, drawing duplications, mind reading, reading people and suggestion. While playing cards may still be used for certain demonstrations, they are not used in the traditional magician way of “pick a card, find a card” tricks, although Simon can perform these if requested. He does realise that the majority of females are averse to card tricks!
DO YOU TRAVEL
Yes. As previously mentioned, a quote always takes into account any travelling.
