FAQs

SINCE I'M SUPPOSED TO BE A MIND READER

Here are answers to a few questions I KNOW are on your mind.

  • Think of mentalism like “mind magic.” Instead of sleight of hand and making objects vanish and reappear, Kevin plucks thoughts from your guests’ minds. His interactive show makes your audience the focus of the event and employs a variety of skills from keen observation to subtle influence (with a touch of magic). Nobody in the audience is assisting Kevin secretly, and the outcomes are different every night. It really must be seen to be believed.

  • Kevin’s program is billed as “entertainment for people who have seen it all” for a good reason. His private clients have included A-list actors and actresses, and the who’s who of the business world. Kevin has appeared across national television, including as a subject matter expert on the AMC program The Core.

    No audience is too large or small. Kevin has entertained for private families in their homes, and for 17,000 guests in an arena. We will discuss your unique needs, and create a program that brings your event to life, no matter what the size.

  • Kevin’s standard show is 50 – 60 minutes of fast-paced entertainment. For theater bookings, the show is 90 minutes. We can create custom presentations for any length of time, depending on your exact needs. And we can provide guidance from experience to help create the perfect timeline for your event.

  • All programs are quoted on an individual basis. Every event has different considerations from travel to the size of the audience. Once we understand the scope and timing of your event, we will send a proposal that addresses your unique needs.

  • Kevin performs at over 100 events globally each year. Most of these clients book Kevin six to twelve months in advance (sometimes more). With that said, we have no booking minimums and last minute programs can occasionally be accommodated. Since our schedule changes every time the phone rings, we don’t publish booked dates on our website. If you contact Kevin through our Booking Page, we will reach out within 24 hours with more information.

  • Each month, we publish upcoming tour dates and television appearances in Kevin’s newsletter. Sign up with the form on this page, and we will keep you in the loop!
