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

  • Think of mentalism like “magic of the mind.” Instead of sleight of hand and things appearing and disappearing, 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 “in on it” 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 include A-list celebrities and top international business executives. 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 is comfortable presenting his show at varying lengths to suit your event. His full length show runs the better part of an hour, or 90 minutes for theaters. We can create custom presentations and emcee programs 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.

    We find it best to begin Kevin’s program following dinner, when audiences are served dessert and attentive. We also recommend scheduling awards or presentations that will last more than 30 minutes AFTER the show for maximum impact. Kevin will leave your guests attentive and in a great mood, ready for the activities following his show.

  • All programs are quoted on an individual basis. Every event has different considerations from travel to the size of the audience. Just like the Super Bowl has greater demand than a regular season games, certain dates and times historically have a higher demand and hence a higher fee. Once we understand the scope and timing of your event, we will send a proposal addressing your unique needs.

Other Common Questions

If you have other questions for Kevin, please let us know by contacting us.

Q: “Are you a psychic?”
A: “I’m not a psychic, and don’t claim to be in my show. Everything is accomplished through psychology, sleight of hand, and theatrics.”

Q: “How did you learn this skill?”
A: “I started as a magician when I was a kid. As I grew up, I became more fascinated by the human mind and the way that people think. This became the new focus of my show, melding techniques that I had learned as a magician with my understanding of human nature.

Q: “How can I learn? Are there any books you recommend?”
A: I’m a huge fan of books on psychology and our minds. Moonwalking with Einstein is a great look at the world of super memory, and Thinking Fast and Slow by Kahnemahn provides insight into our decision-making skills. Another recent favorite is Behave by Robert Sapolsky, which is another fascinating look at our psyche and behavioral mechanisms.

Q: “Where do you live?”
A: “San Diego, CA born and raised!”
