Does anyone know of any 2 person mentalist acts that consist of 2 males? It seems like all of the 2 person acts are made up of just a man and a woman.

Yes, my twin brother and I are working on a twin two person mentalism act. I think it is the first two person act that involves twins, that gives us a new hook and a lot of opportunity for publicity.

Magicman, that is an absolutely splendid idea...twins ? I think you just may have hit on something there. ESPecially with all of the work being done today with twins and telepathy . Well done my friend, and much success to you and your brother.

Thanks Rick, We hope to emulate the success of the Evasons, but it will take 20 years to do that.

Bill and Ira Davenport are still the most impactful
& influential act mentalism has ever seen world wide.

McCambridge & Shaw, in their short run together
would have been equally powerfull. A pity they
went their seperate ways

Good luck with this, a great idea and as you say, a lot of opportunity for publicity one would think.

Mentalist Twins... that's a powerful idea.

But if you can’t find a twin brother, get a friend and a white tiger.

Actually there is already a set of twins (young girls) exploiting this concept... I think they're out of Texas and been doing it for at least two to three years now, as part of their father's show.

As to a same sex duo... you might check around in the San Fransisco (Castro) district...

Trust me, there are several "same sex" teams though you may not see the "partner" on stage. Years ago I did a two-way Telepathy routine featuring a Drag Queen who took on the personna of my girl "Spidora" (that's right, the carnival freak!) I know of an illusionist in the Reno, NV. area that featured a Drag Queen in the guise of being Ms. Clara Voyant during the Ms. Cleo craze here in the states... I'm certain, if I racked my brain a bit, I could come up with a few other references (then again, there are those in this business that would prefer to keep such things neatly tucked inside their "Magic Closet" if you get my drift...)

I believe there are a couple a guys in Los Angeles County who've even done 2-man mentalism on the street! I think one of them is a Café member, in fact, but unfortunately I can't think of his name at the moment.
(This might help to identify him, though: he's one of the guys who were enticed to go to the local police station, supposedly to do a show for the police officers, only to arrive there and be served with tickets for having performed in the area without a business license.)

To answer Whacky Neighbor's question - Yes there are very successful male two person acts.

I am very familiar with a pair that have been performing professionally and making a Very good living for over 12 years.

When one understands the dedication and effort required to do two person mentalism in a believeable and entertaining way one realizes sex has nothing to do with it.

The quality of the performance is what sells the magic in the minds of the viewers, not the sexy girl in the slinky black dress or the guy in the Armani Tuxedo.

Two person routines literally take years to learn. How many of you have dedicated two years or more to perfect a single routine before you ever performed it once in public. The team I know did just that.
