Sidney has been the talk of the office since yesterday's event. He brought such a fun and intriguing experience for all our guests. He strolled the room and kept everyone engaged and in awe. Our event was roughly 200 people and he made his way around the room so naturally. SUCH. A. HIT!!! Will be calling Sidney again for future events!
As promised, Sidney delivered a fantastic and entertaining performance to our audience of 430+ people for a fundraising gala. He perfectly intertwined the mission of the event within his performance, with an amazing and memorable finale. He and his manager are extremely easy to work with. He was a very special addition to our event!
Sidney Friedman and his team deliver a first class experience from booking through finale! Amazing, Great, Awesome, Unbelievable , Very Entertaining, Wow and a Huge Thumbs up, were just some of the comments that our guests made.
Sidney participated in our customer and partner reception at HIMSS and he was a hit! Strolled through 150 people and engaged with the crowd. Approach was very personable, non-invasive and easy going. Crowd really enjoyed it and amazed by his unique skill! Thanks Sidney!
Response from Mentalist Sidney Friedman:
Tracy, thank you!! Truly a pleasure to help you entertain, amaze and delight your customers in Chicago.
Hired Sidney for our company's holiday party. We are a small company so it was an intimate performance. Sidney was great- definitely a man at the top of his craft- very entertaining! Tricks were on point and stunning. Highly recommend!
Sidney was amazing! Easy to book, easy to communicate, very professional. His show was beyond my expectations!!! Booking Sidney was definitely the right decision! I highly recommend!
Sidney was exceptional. From the time he arrived to the moment he left- an absolute gentleman. And the show…….WOW!!!
People are still talking about it the next day.
Thank you Sidney for making my son’s evening so special!!!
Sydney was awesome! He customized his show to our 40-person group, and sent them all home amazed and trying to figure out what they had just seen.
Hosted a work party for colleagues and had Sidney join. Guests were blown away with the quality and differentiated nature of the show. Not seen anything like it. Very entertaining, will leave people talking about the event and remembering it for a long time. Easy to work with, great booker. Very high unique and creative.
Everyone absolutely loved Sidney's show. We went all out this year to say Thank You to our staff since we did not have a party last year. Sidney did not disappoint and everyone was a buzz after the show talking about it.
Sidney entertained our guests, kept us guessing, we were on the edge of our seat the whole time being wowed. He was simply amazing.
Sidney was captivating and kept our crowd of all ages riveted, enthralled and amazed.
I can't say enough about Sidney. He was that perfect added touch that made our whole party come together. We had 40-50 guests. Sidney did not leave one persons jaw undropped. Even the biggest skeptic at our party was left speachless. He was so warm and kind to everyone. I previously hired a different person to give readings and they cancelled the day of the party. I put a notice on gig salad and Sidney contacted me back within a half hour and agreed to do the party that same day. I'm actually glad the other person cancelled, things just have a way of working out the way they are meant to sometimes. I would definitely hire Sidney again in the future, and you should too!
Sidney came to our company's 100th celebration. I can't begin to tell you how amazing he is. Everyone had so much fun, and we all will be talking about Sidney for a long time to come. Don't hesitate to book Sidney.
I gave my daughter a special day and Sidney was what she wanted. He nailed it!!! The party was absolutely a big success and all our guests, adults and kids, were all amazed by him. I was very happy with his performance and there is no doubt I'll be using him again and highly recommend him to my friends and family.
Thank you, Sidney, you are a star!!!!
Sidney joined us for our end of the year office party. It was for a small group, in an intimate setting. Sidney did an amazing job keeping everyone entertained, engaged, and in awe. The entire group was blown away by his talent and his act was one of the highlights of the evening. I would strongly recommend him.
Sidney's performance absolutely wowed our guests! Without a doubt the highlight of our holiday party. This is not your typical "magic" show, Sidney really gets your audience thinking! On a professional level, he was also a pleasure to work with. He was well prepared and helpful the day of the event - a welcomed relief on a day that's already hectic. I highly recommend Sidney and would without a doubt work with him again in the future.
Sidney did a GREAT job entertaining our guests for my wife's surprise birthday party.
He intrigued even the most doubting people
He engaged the entire group
I would HIGHLY recommend him
The Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven recently hosted a successful community campaign featuring Sidney Friedman, "Mentalist to the Stars". Having seen Sidney Friedman a few years ago through another Federation, I was determined to bring him to the greater New Haven community. The outcome was beyond my expectations. It was a fascinating, entertaining and engaging program.
The highlight was that Mr. Friedman was able to articulate and integrate the Jewish Federation message of into his performance. So many attendees stated this was the best Federation event they had ever been to; the crowd eagerly engaged and participated and our lay leadership enjoyed Sidney's show as well as the enthusiastic impact he had on our audience. Sidney effectively weaved our Federation message into his performance which resulted in people opening their hearts and pockets, making their annual campaign pledges after his performance. I think he used his psychic powers to help increase gifts!
I highly recommend Sidney Friedman to every Federation looking for an enjoyable, engaging, and entertaining program to wow their donors and increase annual campaign giving.
Sidney Friedman is a class act. I highly recommend. He dazzled 120
Golfers at the joe Maddon charity golf event.
I have a WOW thank you for Sidney! Just a note to tell you how much everyone was blown away by your performance at our home Saturday afternoon. It was't just your extrasensory ability and musical talent that was obvious and enjoyed by everyone....there was an invisible something, a sweetness, a gentleness directed at Inez. I felt it and I hope she did too. Thank you again for an unforgettable afternoon.
Sidney did a wonderful job entertaining us at our company meeting. However, even better than that, he spent the time with our leadership learning all about our Behavioral Health Hospitals and was able to make his act very relevant to us specifically. The participants were blown away by the act and even several days and weeks after the event they are still raving about the performance. I would strongly recommend Sidney Friedman to any group that wanted to be amazed and have their spirits lifted.
Our community is still talking about the phenomenal performance of Sidney Friedman at our annual "Place 2 Be" event. Outstanding, entertaining, mesmerizing, engaging and so much more, only begins to define Sidney's show. Everyone wants to know how he "does it". Sidney also understood the mission of our organization and incorporated it into the show. Can't wait to see him again. THANK YOU, Sidney
Sidney was very entertaining and an unbelievable mentalist. Everyone was awed!
We've all seen this: Ten minutes into an inspirational/motivational speaker, the guest slides his pelvis forward in the chair and leans back. The right ankle comes up to rest on the left knee. Then the hands disappear under the table. While the head remains seemingly aimed at the speaker, the eyes are clearly focused under the table.... and the guest is now firmly engaged with his cell phone. He's gone. He's in another galaxy. You've lost him.
No more! I wanted a speaker/performer that would engage the audience and hold their attention, with a little audience participation thrown in. I wanted something different!
That's exactly what we got in Sidney Friedman. Sidney kept the audience fully engaged and shaking their heads in amazement. When he asked for volunteers, hands shot up all over the room. Even the skeptics wanted to participate! Sidney not only held their keen interest, but he left them asking "How did he do that??" and "What did I just see??". Sidney uses his gift in ways that are truly entertaining, while both unbelievable and believable at the same time.
There were no cell phones under tables during Sidney’s performance. That says a LOT! Sidney is a win-win-win!
Sidney performed at my husband's 60th birthday party at our home for 45 people. He was engaging, entertaining and mind blowing. I have received multiple phone calls today with my friends raving about his show. He was a wonderful addition to our party.
Sidney was easy to contact and communicated in a very timely fashion.
Sidney was wonderful for our school fundraiser; I have never seen so many mouths drop at once. He wowed a crowd of over 200 people, who can't stop talking about the event. Sidney promoted our school all during his interactive show ;we had never experienced this kind of personalized entertainment for an event before. He truly is mind blowing!
Sidney Friedman performed at a celebration for my mother's 80th birthday. He captivated the audience (which included all ages from 2 1/2 to 88), with his charm and his engaging and interactive style. Sidney is warm, and funny as well as startlingly skilled as a mentalist. I have never seen a room filled with delighted faces, not a bored look among them. He made my mother feel so special and he wowed everyone. He was also very flexible and willing to work with us in a space which which smaller than ideal. I give him my highest recommendation as a performer and he is an absolute pleasure to work with. You couldn't possibly be anything but completely satisfied by choosing Sidney Friedman to perform at your event! Five stars and bravo!
Sidney's performance was great! Everyone had a wonderful time and it was the perfect addition to our celebration. Our guests are still talking about it and how much they enjoyed his show!
Sidney came to our Sales & Service Management Team Meeting and we couldn't be more thrilled to have him! The personalized presentation was just what we needed to motivate and engage the team. I continued to receive positive feedback from those involved days after the event and everyone wondered "where we got him" and couldn't stop talking about the show.
Sidney was absolutely exceptional, he really spent the time to learn about our company and customized to show just for us. Really great.
Sidney Friedman performed at our client appreciation dinner and he was a unanimous HUGE hit!!! My guests and staff are still talking about him, clients are calling me and thanking me. He has a remarkable personable engaging way of presenting his "miracles," plus he weaved in our theme throughout the show, making the evening not only fun and spellbinding but also meaningful. Sidney is most likely the best mentalist in the world, plus just as important, he and his booking manager Richard are terrific to work with. If you don’t book Sidney for your next event you are missing out the most amazing show I have ever seen.
Quality, interesting, fun, tasteful entertainment for all ages. Also helped promote our organization. Outstanding event thanks to Sidney!!
We hired Sidney for a corporate event and it was spectacluar! Not only did people walk away completely entertained that night, but they are still talking about it one month later. His intuitive mindpower will amaze anyone who has the chance to see Sidney in action. I would highly recommend Sidney Friedman for any event.
Hiring Sidney was a risk for us, because we had no idea whether people in the community would be interested enough to come. Well, they were! We had a large crowd that enjoyed this event immensely. The audience participation that Sidney engineered was hugely successful and created an electric anticipation for audience members, many of whom were hoping to participate. The audience was genuinely amazed at Sidney's abilities, but also appreciated his frank assessment of how successful he might be from show to show. After the show we could hear people everywhere -- in the lobby, in the parking lot, talking about which aspect of the performance they were most awed by. This was an extremely fun night and a really good fund raiser for our arts group.
What to Expect
Three things set mentalist Sidney Friedman apart from all other entertainers: 1) His performance makes Everyone feel special. He literally elevates an entire crowd as if he is speaking to each person individually. 2) Sidney and his staff are the easiest, most professional people to work with. Sidney doesn't want you satisfied. He wants you Wowed!!!
As seen on the Today Show and The View, Sidney's show features the art of perception and intuition performed to the highest degree, but more than that, your audience will feel charged up, happy and excited about our minds, our lives and all the possibilities.
The Friedman experience includes telepathy, extrasensory perception (ESP), premonition, even "mathemagic" and all kinds of extraordinary mind power. PLUS, uniquely and exclusively, you will see Friedman's "Music Mind Reading" where you think of specific songs, Friedman then senses them and plays them on the piano or guitar (See GigSalad Video).
In addition, Friedman customizes each presentation so your theme, concepts and goals are an integral part of the show.

A small table, a stool and a microphone are all that's required for smaller crowds. A small riser and some lighting are also needed for larger crowds, though often Friedman can bring his own lighting. Please inquire for specifics.
