"World's Foremost Mentalist"
one can say that the Amazing Kreskin is short on energy. He has amazed
countless television and concert audiences with his feats of mind-boggling mind power and
For more than 40 years, Kreskin has used his abilities
to reveal thoughts of voluntary participants and to discover hidden objects. Before each
performance, he requests that a check for his services be hidden. If he is unable to
find it before the show's end, he will forfeit his fee. In more than 5000 appearances
throughout the world, Kreskin has failed only nine times.
Kreskin is an entertainer whose record-breaking
appearances on television have established him as a master showman who has made skeptics
This performer, who has never rehearsed and is unable to audition
without an audience, made his debut on "The Steve Allen Show." Then, two
bookings on "The Mike Douglas Show" turned into 118 appearances. He has
also appeared on "The Merv Griffin Show" nearly 100 times, "The Tonight
Show" 88 times, "Regis
and Kathie Lee Live" 96 times, "Late Night With
David Letterman," "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous," "Nashville
Now," "Crook & Chase," "Comedy Central," "Larry King
Live" and "Inside Edition."
"Television has been a great blessing. All of these TV appearances
became a wonderful dossier of my career as far as the public is concerned," says Kreskin,
"but my greatest love has always been live concerts."
With the exception of a few holidays, he tours continually with a
production/road manager, who travels with him to coordinate the scheduling and expedite
matters since he is sometimes in seven cities in seven days in North America.
His performance has no limitations. His appearances include everything
from private parties and fund raisers to casinos and theaters. He also has been engaged as
a speaker at corporate events as well as a guest performer with symphony orchestras
because he's an accomplished pianist.
Kreskin is an avid reader he reads four books
per night. Able to read a novel in about 20 minutes and a technical book in twice that
time, he has a suitcase full of books ranging in subjects from parapsychology to "The
Life Of Jackie Gleason." He has written six books, including "Secrets
of The Amazing Kreskin."
While Kreskin's shows come in a wide variety of shapes
and sizes. The following four examples best represent the most requested show formats.
However, the possibilities are limitless!
- Banquet Show -- The banquet show is always customized to your specific
needs. As a result, each and every banquet has its own flavor. Kreskin
will customize the show to fit your specific needs, including length of performance and
the theme of the show.
- Full Evening Concert -- This is the quintessential Kreskin.
The full evening concert allows Kreskin the opportunity to demonstrate a
full array of mental phenomena. In a format that resembles a fireside chat with Kreskin
you will witness mental projection and reception along with the hilarious power of
- Outdoor Affairs -- Most people never think of Kreskin
as an outdoor performer. Nothing however, could be further from the truth. As a master
showman, Kreskin has the ability to perform under any condition. As the
more than 20,000 attendees at the Minnesota State Fair or the thousands at the Oregon
State Fair can attest....it is a rare joy to see Kreskin combine his wit
and charm in the great outdoors.
- Special Promotions -- Some previous examples of the Special Promotions
format have included Kreskin finding a special sealed bottle of Korbel
wine among millions of other bottles, opening a shopping mall by locating the key hidden
somewhere in the mall itself, hand delivering the Courier Post newspaper to a home
secretly thought of in South Jersey....well, you get the idea.
