As an Executive Producer of corporate events I see a lot of acts every year! I have hired and worked with or seen most of the A-Listers that go on tour year after year. Brett Barry brings that quality of showmanship you expect when paying top dollar! He engages the audience like the pro that he is, makes them comfortable while bringing them to stage and putting them at ease while he works his magic... or in his case his Mentalist! He took a National collection of energy executives and just blew them away. Some if not most in the audience held engineering degrees along with their doctorates, they were dumb founded! As I sat with our crew at front of house we were all scratching our heads! Just a great showman with truly amazing situations he unraveled, I dare not call them tricks as I don't feel like anyone was tricked. His work goes far deeper and is way more engaging then a guy with a deck of cards! The Mentalist will have you and your audience asking "How did he do that?" for weeks after your event! We will book Brett again and again!

Brett Barry was the highlight of our event. He was absolutely phenomenal and amazed every one of the 300 guests with his exceptional talents. Brett was incredible to work with in arranging the event. His flexibility, organization, and professionalism made it a joy and so easy to work with him. Brett went above and beyond expectations and made sure that he created memorable and special moments for the guests. I would hire Brett in a heartbeat for any future events because of his genuine and personable character, his passion for entertainment, and his commitment to creating a one-of-a-kind event. Thank you so much Brett!
Response from Brett Barry - Mentalist & Magician:
Thank you Collin - you created a spectacular evening! This event was for the Thunderbird School of Global Management
Brett was very entertaining and everyone enjoyed his talents
Not only is Brett a completely AMAZING mentalist and magician, I must say, as a finicky and particular event planner like myself, he was an absolute professional and pleasure to work with. I write this with complete sincerity and zero exaggeration. Thank you for listening to our different and unique needs for every event we have booked you for and being a gentleman and staller professional within your craft. He boggles my mind and after watching him many times I still can't figure it out! Hire him and be blown away but his talents.
Brett's entertainment at our holiday party was a smashing success in every way. I highly recommend anyone thinking about hiring Brett for an event to stop thinking about it and just do it!! You will not be sorry.
Brett definitely exceeded our party's expectations! His presence added an element of intrigue and excitement and definitely took our event to the next level! He was wonderful to work with from his accommodating nature when I needed to change dates to arriving early for our event. The guests absolutely loved him and his abilities. We had a few skeptics in the beginning however by the end of the were in complete awe of his abilities. I will definitely be looking to hire Brett for our next event and cannot wait to see what else he is capable of! Truly a memorable experience and evening all thank you to Brett Barry!
Response from Brett Barry - Mentalist & Magician:
Wow - Brooke, thanks so much to you and your colleagues at American Express. It was my pleasure to help make your evening memorable and amazing.
Engaged the crowd in a very entertaining way! They literally all crowded around him in awe!
Response from Brett Barry - Mentalist & Magician:
Moshe: Great event at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess for your execs. Thanks for the opportunity to leave a strong & entertaining impression and (hopefully!) make you look good!
Truly amazing, authentically mind blowing! We hired Brett for our wedding reception and dinner and he had crowds around him gasping and cheering. We immediately hired him for October for a fundraiser at our home. Hire him you will love him!
Everyone had such a great time at our Ladies Day event! I have heard nothing but positive feedback since then; everyone adored you and your entertainment! You certainly added to the positive vibe I was going for. You were everything you market yourself to be, and so much more. You exceeded my expectations by far. I can’t thank you enough for being a part of this event and making it an unforgettable experience!
Response from Brett Barry - Mentalist & Magician:
What an honor to perform for your official FIESTA BOWL event for the spouses, wives and girlfriends of Ohio State & Clemson players before the big game. The energy was incredible and I look forward to partnering with you again! Thank you
Brett is a delight to have at your party. From the moment he arrives he draws people in. He created a magical mood during our reception that teased our employees with what to expect during his dinner show.
Brett works the crowd to find the perfect accomplice to his various performances. He performs as if this were his first show and you were his favorite audience.
Even the most skeptical ones in the crowd found their jaw dropping as they saw Brett read others minds, thoughts, and body language.
Let yourself be amazed and book Brett for your next event. He will capture your thoughts and your heart.
Response from Brett Barry - Mentalist & Magician:
It was an honor to entertain your AUDI luxury crew Mark. You all made me feel right at home and now I know why your dealership is #1 - it is the incredible people there
We had Barry come for a corporate dinner event and he was very flexible with the start time and configuration of the audience. He truly performed amazing work and entertained the group! He was professional and did a great job! We had a few individuals who had too much to drink in the crowd and he handled their behavior beautifully! (We are so sorry about that) We also had a few skeptics in the crowd of his work and he blew them away too! I would highly recommend him for your next event!
Brett entertained my guests at a family and friends gathering this past Saturday evening. He was fantastic!!! He spent time strolling through the party and speaking to everyone while at the same time doing his mentalist magic!!! Everyone was caught off guard and thoroughly enjoyed!! Later on he put on a spectacular show in my living room using different guests to display his mentalist expertise!!! At the end he posed for pictures with my guests !! I can't tell how impressed I was with his acts, personalism, and total showmanship!! He is definitely a "Big Stage" kind of show but can absolutely make it just as exciting in your living room!!! A Must Book!!!!
My Husband and I just had our 40Th Birthday Party and Brett Barry was the entertainment for the evening. He not only amazed my Husband and myself, but he amazed everyone at the party too! Usually people talk about the show right after it ends about how great it was, but what about the next day? My friends and family were! I would recommend having Brett at your next event. If you do please let me know if you could figure out how he did all his illusions because I have no idea! Amazing! Thanks Brett for a great time!
Brett was fantastic! He was able to get everyone involved and kept our group amazed. Our company couldn't stop talking about the act the following day.
Brett came out to our Office Dinner Party and everyone really had a great time with him. Everywhere he went people would gather and be amazed at what he was doing. There was also some people who after he went to their table started to try the magic he just preformed (all failed!) he really was the highlight of the night! I have recommended him to various groups who are looking for something different to have a their party and he is the perfect choice or that.
I booked Brett for our Halloween festival and he did an amazing job with the students! He was very natural and mingled well with everybody. DeVry has never booked a performance for any of our events and I'm happy that he was the first!
I hired Brett for our High School Grad Night party because we wanted something "different", and I'm so glad I did. The students (and adult volunteers) absolutely LOVED him. They were all mesmerized. We had about 300 students in attendance and he roamed around the venue, quickly gathering crowds wherever he went. Brett was professional, courteous and a pleasure to work with. We hope to have him return to our events for years to come.
Brett performed and a Corporate reception for us and was hired to do a 2 hour walk around. He engaged small groups throughout the evening with mind blowing performances that continued to be discussed throughout the remainder of our event for the following few days. I have not problem in recommending Brett for your event. We thoroughly enjoyed his performances.
Brett was thoroughly entertaining. He was very charming and had the entire group completely in the palm of his hands. His performance was just the thing for my Mother's 95th Birthday! Everyone was absolutely thrilled with Brett and his mind bending tricks! Thank you again Brett.
I had very high expectations coming into the show based and what I had heard. The show actually exceeded those high expectations. It is a MUST see!! Brett is phenomenal!!!!!
Everyone enjoyed you and your performance. We would love to have you back again.
Brett was spectacular. We've hired a mentalist before, but theres just NO comparison between the two or the experiences. Our initial plans, we quickly discovered, werent going to work out for us and Brett was quick to adjust and revamp the show. The crowds loved him almost as much as we did. Keep up the good work and cant wait to work with you again in the future!!
Brett was our Mentalist at the recent Arizona Multi-housing Association Trade Show. He was fabulous! He drew crowds to our booth mesmerizing people with his effects while at the same time weaving in a solid promotion of our company. We would highly recommend hiring Brett for your next Corporate event!
Brett Barry was kind enough to perform at our fundraising event, Laughs for Lungs, at Stand-up Scottsdale Comedy Club on April 13, 2014. The audience was stunned and completely wowed by his show, and throughout the night, I heard the comment, "How did he do that?" Brett was funny, witty and thoroughly enjoyable. He tailored his show perfectly for the audience. I HIGHLY recommend him for all types of events. Loved it, Brett!!! Thanks so much.

When I hired Brett, I wasn't totally sure what I would be getting. Brett was early, putting my mind at ease. He made all my guests feel included in his presentations and made the party beyond amazing! People have been calling me, thanking me for hosting the "best party I've ever attended!" I know that the credit goes to Brett! I would DEFINATELY bood Brett again! In fact, I can't wait for an excuse to employ him again! Thanks Brett!
5 Stars. INCREDIBLE. Brett performed for our neighborhood party last night. He did a combination of "strolling" through the crowd while people were socializing and a stand-up performance at the end of the night. Everyone loved it - and him. He is personable and fit right in with us. By the end of the night, he was a neighbor, too! Email communication/booking before the event was EASY and well organized, he was on-time to the party and immediately ready to work. I've already had people ask for his booking information. He is such a great find - he almost seemed TOO good and TOO amazing for our neighborhood party. We should have been at a show in Vegas or something (and paying top $$)... He is affordable, amazing and I right now I wish I was keeping him for my own party secret - now I am going to have to compete for his business with everyone else reading these reviews. Why didn't I think of that sooner? ;)
Brett was on time professional amazed my clients and went over and above the call of duty to make my event a success.
Brett was a perfect match for our group, he was on time, communicated well what we would be experiencing and the execution was flawless. We all woke up today from our corporate event trying to figure out how the heck he pulled off his magic. We highly recommend his services and we will be using him again in the future.
Brett Barry is an excellent entertainer and was very effective at keeping the audience engaged. At the same time Mr. Barry was great at making the bride-to-be the center of attention. After the bridal shower I got numerous thanks from our guests for not making them “play the dreaded bridal shower games”. It was a welcome change from the typical bridal shower activities.
As a side note, while Brett’s illusions are truly fascinating, the show enjoyment in part also depends on the right and receptive audience, their level of participation and sense of humor.
For my party it was well worth the price, and definitely exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Brett Barry for your next event.
Brett came to help us with our Sales Kickoff event, specifically the main dinner of the event. He was a huge hit with everyone! He was professional but very personable, knew how to work the room and facilitated a nice flow while wandering through the crowd and engaging with everyone. Most importantly, his magic did not disappoint! I'd highly recommend him for any event.

"Brett came and entertained guests in our home for a Halloween party. He was so personable and really blew people away with his performances. Our guests are still talking about how amazing he was and days have passed since our party. He definitely made the party memorable and we would highly recommend him for any event you have planned, he will definitely more than entertain your group, he will keep them guessing days later on how he does it! We all loved it!"

Mentalism is Brett’s first love because of the totally unique way it affects people from the inside out – unlocking their innate creativity & energy using a wide array of psychological techniques. Brett uncovers thoughts in the most inexplicable of ways. Your guests will be talking for days about their experiences, and they may very well be given a quarter, twisted key or spoon as a keepsake – the one that they saw melt right in front of their eyes.
Psychological entertainment has become the rage in recent years, and for very good reason: It is so totally different then the run of the mill entertainment (singers, bands, etc.) and people simply love it. Many are also familiar with the hit CBS TV show “The Mentalist,” starring Simon Baker, and are fascinated by demonstrations of the power of the human mind. We are all familiar with the power of subliminal messages in advertising.
Brett understands that YOUR guests are truly the stars when Brett performs for them - creating unforgettable moments using the most ordinary of objects: playing cards, books, magazines, a bowl of candy, a simple note pad, and names of loved ones from your present or past.
Strolling is the ideal choice for corporate events, trade shows, restaurants, and private parties including weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. The ideal length of a strolling event is 2-3 hours, and Brett can custom tailor his performance your specific needs. You and your guests must decide what is natural ability, what is an illusion, what is psychology, and what may be something more. I will allow seemingly impossible events to occur for your entertainment.
You're party isn't a party unless you have Brett entertaining your guests! We had an event for 80 people and let me tell you, Brett blew 80 minds! Every single guest came up to me in complete awe of Brett's performance. What was so nice was that it was Brett who casually engaged guests a handful at a time and mingled with everyone, it was flawless. Hiring Brett for your event - whether a corporate function, birthday party, wedding reception, cocktail party, or WHATEVER will mean the difference of the event being an alright night or a unforgettable experience. I will never, ever have a party again without Brett there. Simply put - THE BEST!

Influences & Inspiration
I became a Magician member of the famous "Magic Castle" in the late 1990's. Like many Magicians, I began to take a strong interest in Mentalism (mind reading) in the early 2000's. Although it is a related art with many similarities, there are big differences. I found my study of mentalism also gave me particular insights into the innermost workings of the people I performed for. I also discovered that people reacted differently - and more strongly in many cases - to these "sleights of mind."
Why hire an "ordinary Magician" when you can get a true Mentalist & professional - someone that will massively entertain your guests and leave your guests talking for days about YOUR amazing event!
