Alexander – Mind Reader | UK
Alexander reads minds. He doesn’t pretend to be psychic – he doesn’t read palms or talk to the dead; he reads people and talks to the living, combining contemporary mind reading with sharp wit and a flair for showmanship. If you would like to provide your guests at your corporate events, parties, balls or weddings with great magical entertainment Alexander is available for hire through Contraband. He will mesmerise and will impress your guests at any event with his magic!
For nearly ten years, Alexander has amazed audiences both in the UK and internationally – on stage, up close, and in the press including appearances on the BBC, London Live, ITV’s Good Morning Britain, and Today Tonight (Aus.). He has entertained corporate clients ranging from small independent companies to big household names such as AXA, Aviva, TSB, and Virgin Atlantic.
He is also a successful writer in the magic world having written several books on his own techniques and lectured them to psychology students, mentalists, and magicians at the prestigious Magic Circle.
Since 2014 Alexander has toured nationwide as the stand-out star of Champions of Magic. In 2014 he took his one-man show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival playing to packed houses, and in January 2016 he debuted his one-man show to sell-out crowds in Perth Australia earning himself a Fringe World Cabaret Award Nomination.
Alexander’s stage and cabaret act is an extraordinary display of contemporary mind reading and is ideal after dinner entertainment for both corporate events and private functions.
After an Edinburgh Fringe run in 2014, numerous nationwide tours with Champions of Magic, and Cabaret Award Nominated sell-out shows in Australia, Alex has gained a reputation as an engaging, charismatic, and light-hearted performer.
Drawing on a mixture of expertise in psychology, unique mentalism techniques – harking back to the golden era of vaudeville entertainment – and masterful analysis of audience members, Alex reveals the inner working of the brain, demonstrates why you should never play cards with a mind reader, and predicts the apparently unpredictable. Expect slick and unbelievable demonstrations of his extraordinary skills in a show that has to be seen to be believed.
Alexander can perform in such a way that people experience his mind reading skills up close; his friendly, captivating, and humorous style are the perfect ice-breaker to really get people talking and enjoying themselves. This is the kind of thing your guests may have seen on television but never in the flesh.
This is a versatile, self-contained style of entertainment, suitable for almost any occasion where you have a large group of people talking and enjoying themselves i.e. weddings, corporate events, private parties, christmas parties, birthday parties (from eighteenths to eightieths), charity events, and more.
Alexander can mix and mingle with guests as a walkaround entertainer, or he can invite a few guests at a time to join him and experience their own personal mini-mind reading show in a dedicated area or ‘VIP room’ offering guests something different and unique.
Alexander is equally at home performing to just a handful of guests at a dinner party as he is on stage to hundreds of people, so if you are planning a smaller gathering he can perform a more intimate after dinner show.
Usually taking place around the dining table after a meal, a parlour show allows all your guests to experience his mind reading skills together as a group. It is a thoroughly captivating experience and one they may never forget.
