***Recipient of the Gigmasters 'Best of 2012' Award, based on client feedback. ***
PLEASE NOTE: due to the actions of several less than honest clients, all private events not held at colleges or universities will require a deposit in order to book me. Thank you for your understanding - Keith
Keith Zalinger is an acclaimed thought-reader & paranormal entertainer. As part of his main performance, he divines the thoughts of audience members, answers personal audience members' questions previously unknown to him, and predicts their actions. During his special occasion extended-length shows, Rachel (his partner in thought-reading), identifies drawings, items, and other thoughts while blindfolded from across the room.
A licensed hypnotist in the state of CT, he also performs card/palm/numerology readings, which people love and find beyond useful in their lives. These have been featured at Southern CT State University, Bridal Expos and Girl's Night Out events.
Of course, you shouldn't take his word for it, so he's happy to let his clients speak for him:
"Keith came to my 30th Birthday party and did an amazing job. Everyone could not stop talking about how amazing he is. He was thoroughly entertaining and worth every penny! If anyone is considering him for their party, he is a great catch. I recommend him, highly." - Elizabeth C (Old Greenwich, CT)
"Keith was simply amazing. We did a Tarot Card event at Saks 5th Ave in NYC at my shop located inside Saks. There was a line waiting for him! The clients were thrilled. Keith made sure each client felt so special that not one person complained about having to wait. I would love to work with him again and everyone at the store was impressed. Hire him! You will not be disappointed and you will not have to worry! I set up a table and a few chairs and he was ready to go! I could not have asked for an easier and more successful event! People are still talking about it!" - Molly Z. (Kiehl's/Saks Fifth Ave. - NYC)
"Keith was extremely professional, handsomely groomed and perfectly punctual. He worked with a group of 17-18 year olds at a birthday party. He gave them the option to either have their cards or palms read and they really enjoyed it. I would definitely hire him again or recommend him to others."
- Pat D. (Guilford, CT)
"Thank you for attending, it was a huge turnout thanks to you!" - Candice M. (Southern Connecticut State University)
"We hired Keith for our Halloween Party. He did some mind-reading, and everyone had a great time. He involved the kids, he involved the adults. Afterwards, he did some Palm and Tarot card readings for the guests, and everyone seemed to enjoy it a lot. Thank you!" - Sherri & Chris (Milford, CT)
"Keith crushed it, totally!" -Ryan B (Middlebury, CT)
"This show was very entertaining. Before the show Keith mingled with the crowd performing individual routines. And after the show he stayed and did individual palm readings which everyone loved even more. It was a great time!" - Debbie Rathbun (Norwich Public Utilities)

mind-reading show around the table getting everybody involved. Lots of fun, very professional and entertaining." - Philip M (Greenwich, CT)
"Everyone had a blast and really enjoyed their readings! I will look for you on Facebook, and I will definitely recommend you to others!" - Sarah (Westbrook, CT)

Keith Zalinger: Mind, Tarot, and Palm reader
Too many influences to list: I am influenced by everyone I meet, and my experiences with them.
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 20 - 360 minutes
Mind-reading show: Jaw-dropping revealtions of audience members' thoughts, family members, friends, questions. Audience actions are predicted in advance, sometimes weeks ahead.
For mind-reading show: 6'x8' area. Level with floor is preferred, as I spend much of my show out in the audience.
For readings: table & 3 chairs. Separate area away from loud music is preferred, but not a requirement.
For my mind-reading show: I have my own PA, which can realistically be heard in a room with 200-250 people. I prefer not to use a stage, as I spend much of time interacting directly with members of the audience. If you are also having a DJ, I am happy to use the DJ's PA with his/her permission to help save space & time.
For readings: A table & 3-4 chairs. An area not situated near loud music is ideal, but not required.
For my mind-reading show: the set can be anywhere from 20 - 90 mins
For readings: past experience has shown that I can realistically read for about 10 people in the course of 1 hour. If a more condensed time is desired, I can provide group palm readings or shortening the length of individual ones. Please specify in your request.
