I'm familiar with the Piddingtons, but have there been other husband/wife performing duos in mentalism throughout the years?

Jeff and Tessa Evason are, IMO, the best two person act working today.

Yes. I've heard they are excellent but, unfortunately, I haven't had the opportunity to see them

One of the greatest teams I ever saw years ago was Liz and Tommy Tucker.

The Spencers of the UK were also a great team. (Like the Tuckers, the Spencers were also early members of the PEA, which is where I got to know them.)

Simon and Ginny Aronson revive their two-person act on special occasions from what I understand.

I remember seeing an act called the Zodias many years ago, they were very good. My wife and
I did a two person act many years ago, Eric Mason was very interested in it at the time, I have been thinking of resurrecting it but I am not sure if it really suits today's kind of audiences, what do you guys think ?
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

I saw Simon and Ginny Aronson perform their 2 person act at The Session a couple of years ago. I have to say that it was, for me, the most awe inspiring performance I think I have witnessed in magic.

I was fortunate to see the Aronsons' act at Magic Inc. years ago. It was amazing!

Glenn Falkenstein and Francis Willard would qualify. The mindreading was only a part of what they did, tho.

Growing up not far from,....I loved watching the team of Tommy and Liz Tucker, and could not tell you how many times I read through their ads, etc,....wishing tobuy,...but 1) I had not enough money and 2)...Being a teen during the first few years I witnesed them (in person), I had no wife/partner...!
Great pioneers of a modern act at the time though..!

Although they are not married, Brian Gillis & Sue do an outstanding two person mindreading act.

Jeff and Tessa are the best husband/wife act performing right now! I never got the opportunity to see Tommy and Liz Tucker, but met Liz at a convention where she talked about their act, and she is an incredibly classy lady.

Hi Jim!

Long time no see. Yes, Liz was also a PEA member. And it was at a PEA MOTM where I first saw her and Tommy perform.

Many people are unaware that Houdini and wife, Bess did a two person act.
Other historical notables are :
Julius and Agnes Zancig
The Piddingtons
Harry and Francis Usher
Eddie Fields and George Martz
The Falkenstein's
Tom and Liz Tucker

I had seen the Tuckers perform and they were simply amazing. Probably the best I have seen.

Alive and performing Today:

The Evasons
Brian Gillis and Sishepahn
Simon Aronson and Ginny
Larry and Raven
Christian & Katalina
Danny Orleans and Jan
Kirby VanBurch and Bambi

I have seen all of these. They are all good but the 2 stands-outs are The Evasons and Christian & Katalina. They are both very good for different reasons. The Evasons are the perfect show business act.

I saw Christian & Katalina at Abbott's and they brought the house down. Funny as hell. It would be difficult to pick a favorite from between the two.

The Bornsteins are another great duo that perform at the Magic Castle often, as well as military shows:
