Mind Reader and Psychological Magician Mark Cairns
Mark is a psychological mind reader, who astonishes audiences with a sophisticated mind reading act that breaks the ice, and gets guests laughing and talking.
What is a Psychological Mind Reader?
Mark Cairns performs primarily as a psychological entertainer (in other words, what is more traditionally called a mind reader or a mentalist). Working close up with guests, he puts on a show designed to appeal to sophisticated and intelligent audiences. The key thing that Mark brings is a relaxed sense of fun - the emphasis is not on "fooling" or embarrassing people but, instead, on ensuring that guests have a good time while being left intrigued and astonished by the mind reader's demonstrations. Mark doesn't claim to be psychic - his skills as a mind reader are based on an exciting combination of learned techniques, his extensive experience in applying them, and on the natural intuition that we all possess to a greater or lesser extent.
Fascinating to Watch
Instead of performing magic 'at' your guests, Mark entertains them in an interactive way. Guests are heavily involved in the mind reading and, as Mark begins to read what they are thinking and influence their actions, the reactions from guests vary from laughter through to complete astonishment. Mark uses many techniques to achieve his effects, which guests can find as fascinating as the results, and these are often the subject of discussion weeks after the performance.
Stimulates Conversation and Breaks the Ice
Performing as a psychological mind reader, Mark appeals to an audience's intelligence, rather than patronising them by making them feel foolish. A less personable mind reader could come across as dry, serious, or even unsettling. But Mark entertains in a reassuringly relaxed, warm and friendly fashion. The focus is on the group of guests themselves, rather than solely on Mark, and this makes Mark's mind reader act an excellent stimulus for conversation and an ideal hospitality ice-breaker.
Flexible and Personalised Entertainment
Mark's skills as a mind reader are flexible enough to allow you to choose between many different formats depending on your needs. For a small group he can present a parlour act and for larger crowds he can deliver a cabaret style floor show, or even a large format stage show.
However, the benefit of hiring a specialist mind reader
comes into its own when you need the ultimate in flexibility.
Unlike many other magicians who offer mind reading as an
extra, Mark is one of the few who will read your guests'
minds up close and personal, exclusively performing
mind reading while mixing one-on-one with guests.
