As a Mentalist & Magician I create a visual style of Mind Reading. Many Mind Readers fall flat because they are dry performers, I pride myself on being one of the most entertaining performers they have seen while keeping it clean and safe. I read minds & reveal names of people who are important and close to them, bend metal, predict what someone will do next, draw out an image someone is visualizing in their head, mind blowing card magic, and even read Palms (I even wrote a book on the subject).
I add convience as I show up early and can smooth out problems. If sound goes out, I still perform. I can easily start early as I don't have giant things to haul around for stage or strolling.

Gig Length: 40 - 150 minutes
What to Expect
From my performances I do all types of things from reading minds, influencing decisions, playing a psychological game where audience members can win money, describing a memory someone is thinking of, drawing what someone pictures in their mind, tap someone on the shoulder and someone else feels it, answering questions, bending silverware (all provided by me, I won't ruin the venues silverware).
I can also give a Keynote Talk on Memory and teach people how to improve their memory drastically within minutes, in this, I also give a demonstration by memorizing a recent magazine (usually a "Time Magazine"), I then rip out and toss pages into the audience and people can call out page numbers and I describe what is on the page they called. I teach them how it's applicable to names, grocery lists, tasks, studying, and more.
For services, I add a piece of mind that can't matched if things to wrong, even if it has nothing to do with my part of your event! I show up early, but that isn't the unique part. The unique part is that if the electricity goes out and the band can't play due to no sound system, I still can. Lighting on the stage went out? No problem! I can perform for groups close up and keep the show going as my show is easily scaleable (up or down). Have to move to a different room? I don't have a bunch of large equipment to haul and can simply walk over and start. In a sense, I can smooth things over before guests realize there is a problem that's being fixed.
David Gamut has been performing for nearly a decade. He began performing in High School and since has wowed and amazed more audiences and types of audiences than many magicians ever see, and with that experience comes a unique draw. His ability to be in the moment with his audiences.
He pays attention, and shows his audiences a sincerity that seems to be lost among performers. His unique illusions and mind reading have always made him a stand out performer, performing at restaurants, private parties, and even being a Speaker at the University of Minnesota. David will blow away you and your audience and personally guarantees that people will congratulate you on an AMAZING event.
I am a Magician & Mind Reader in St Paul and Minneapolis, but I do travel outside that area to perform as well.
Additional Booking Notes
If I am showing up for strolling entertainment, I don't require anything.
If I am showing up for a stage performance, I need a clip on microphone, a wireless hand held microphone with a microphone stand, a table (can be small or any size), a bottle of water, 3 chairs, and an easel.
I reserve the right to bring someone along to take photos and/or video for promotional use. I also require full payment before performance.
I also promise that I do not embarrass anyone. That is never my goal. I entertain, astonish, and give them something amazing they can take with them for the rest of their lives. I do maintain professionalism and connect with audiences in a personal way that has to be seen to be believed. I also do not use mirrors, smoke, or anything out of the ordinary that is obviously a big magic prop. What is out of the ordinary, is the show and the entertainment that I am completely confident everyone will enjoy.
STROLLING: David will mingle with the guests and ensure everyone has a blast! Bending silverware with his mind right in front of you, mind reading, enhancing the connection between people to recreate a phenomena most thought only twins got to experience, and even palm reading will ensure that everything goes off with out a hitch.
STAGE: This is a highly interactive show, making sure the entire audience gets involved and drawn in right off the bat David will quickly influence the entire audience to think of something specific, draw out an image that someone is merely picturing in their mind, reveal a thought of word along with who their best friends in high school were, play a psychological game with 4 people who get a chance to win $100 (in which no one leaves empty handed), someone thinks of a place and David describes in detail, the sounds, smells, and visuals of where they’re thinking & finally reveals the place thought of, another mind game is played with 3 people that is incredibly fun for those playing and the audience watching, and finally an ending that leaves everyone in complete awe and happily looking forward to what the future brings. People absolutely love the ending because its all about them.
BOTH: The Premium package includes both Strolling and Stage. In which the Strolling becomes a preview for the show and a chance to get to know the audience better and get them excited for the show, they will literally be on the edge of there seats right before the show even begins, and of course through the rest of it as well.
TALK: a Talk on Memory that shows that there is no such thing as a good or a bad memory, it’s simply a Trained or a Untrained Memory. David explains the difference, then demonstrates what a Trained memory is capable of by memorizing an entire TIME Magazine, and tossing it out to the audience. The audience then proceeds to call out any page number they want and David will describe what is on that page from memory while the audience is holding onto it. David does this over and over again with different pages each time. David then teaches the entire audience how to memorize things quickly and efficiently using a simple memory technique that only takes minutes to teach!
