He was the surprise entertainer at our New Year's party, and he knocked the socks off all those in attendance. He had everybody laughing, but he also had everybody wondering how he did his act. Folks are still talking about how great he was! Adam was a delight to work with, and I also liked how he personalized his show. If you are looking for a mentalist, look no further. You won't go wrong with him.
Adam was great. He arrived early, started working the crowd in the bar even before our "official" event start and got everyone warmed up. He was very professional, and personable not to mention very good at has trade. It can all be summed up by the simple statement from our owner who grabbed me at the end and said "next year book him for two hours instead of one". I can recommend him without reservation!
Adam exceeded my expectations and all of the guests expectations for his magic and mind reading at a recent adult birthday party. We had about 36 people at a surprise birthday party for my wife. He arrived on time ready to mingle with the guests, and was a big hit! His great personality and charisma were perfect to go along with the magic. The group had naturally split up into smaller groups, so Adam was able to visit with each group and do his strolling.close up magic and mind reading. I knew it was a hit as I kept hearing from across the room "NO WAY, HOW DID HE DO THAT!" He mixed in some card tricks and mind reading activities that were all impressive. A definite must if you are looking for entertainment at an event.
This past Saturday Adam spent the first 90 minutes of our company holiday party doing a highly entertaining mix and mingle during the happy hour.
What a great and buzz-worthy addition! Adam was awesome and really got people talking! Afterwards, the chatter around the dinner tables was full of stories of how he’d completely blown everyone’s minds! Nobody could figure out how he could have known the most random facts people were thinking (the name of the daughter of a best friend?!)
My husband and I were the first people there, to set up, so were privileged to have some fascinating one-on-one time with him before anyone else arrived. Even when he divulged some of his tips for reading our minds we were still unable to stump him!
Adam was a wonderful, fun and unique addition to our party and we loved having him.
We had a St. Patrick's Day event with kids, Parents, and Elderly at our Assisted Living Facility. Adam was very mind blowing. He is very entertaining and we all had a great time and loved it...planning on booking him again for next year!!
Adam was the entertainment for an employee party I attended. He was so-much-fun! Very personable and completely genuine ... so much so that when his magic tricks truly tricked us, I got shivers of the 'wows!' going through my brain. He was conversational, remembered all our names (!!), and was able to pace his tricks even when being interrupted (a lot) as new people arrived. I would 100% recommend him to keep the party going and oooing and ahhhing! He is terrific.
Price Range: $200 and up

Adam began performing sleight-of-hand magic in high school as a hobby and was quickly drawn to the psychological aspects of magic. How was it possible to manipulate someone’s attention? Or cause them to remember something that never occurred? After studying psychology in college Adam went to Washington University in St. Louis to earn his PhD with one of the world’s leading experts on memory.
During that time Adam continued to perform and refine his approach to performing, choosing to focus on a sub-field of magic known as mentalism, which deals exclusively with the mind. Adam was never interested in many "traditional" approaches to magic: he had no desire to pull a rabbit out of a hat or to do big box illusions on a stage. Instead, he focused on creating magic and mind-reading that felt real by using magic, psychology, humor, and even a little hypnosis.
In St. Louis Adam began performing professionally at corporate events and private parties. Notable clients include the Ameristar Casino, the River City Casino, Washington University School of Medicine, and the International Society of Event Specialists.
Today, Adam is a professor at Carleton College, one of the top small colleges in the country, where he teaches classes in psychology and researches human learning and memory. He often uses magic or mind-reading stunts in his classes to explain various functions of the human mind.
