Actually, Denise took that picture after I was roasted at MindVention last November. But I looked pretty much the same when I got back from LA. (I look that way right now, in fact!)

As an entertainer, I'm always doing my best to entertain. After time, I explored, that people are best entertained, when everything seems to be about them. So I'm always trying to connect scripting, premise and effect with spectators and their ego. Make them feel special and even "psychic", if that's what they want to believe. That's the reason why I have my secret fetish for "spectator as mind reader" effects Smile

I don't like Criss Angel type effects "look at me, I'm fabulous". You will find out, that on the first impression, spectators will look amazed and in awe after performances, but experience will last maximally for 1 day, because performers like this affected audience only visually, they didn't connected their feelings, emotions and soul with the performance. Now, I don't want to start a war, I absolutely admire Criss Angel and his work and success.

If you respect this, spectators doesn't care if you used NLP, psychology, higher energy or if you are psychic. They care about the long-lasting experience they will take to their homes and never forget it, hopefully.

Blessings

My brand is spontaneous little stories and miracles, that make the world stop, just for a moment, and allow two strangers to connect.

Surely all pubs have ''SPIRITS'' in them ;-)
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

Hi Sean,

English phlegm was one of the funniest mistranslations I ever heard! Every year I spend about 5 months in the UK (part of the interfaculty agreement of my PhD) and to pass time I perform magic with a local magician. He's pretty well known in his area (though not on the Café so don't ask Smile ) and one day he had a spanish friend/magician over. And he started his show by saying how he found the english to be so phlegmatic; he used the phrase "I lob your english phlegm" and it tore the house down!
I've used it ever since.
