The Exceptionist is not a mindreader. Nope, not a psychic either! And no, it is not pure magic! But what he does sure looks very much like it :)
So how does The Exceptionist do what he does? Simple, he uses psychology, misdirection, sleight of hand, and a little something else to bring about a unique form of entertainment.
Be it a corporate function, high-end functions, private parties, or any event that you want to make it special, there can always be a place for Mind Exceptions.
The Exceptionist has performed in Dubai, Beirut, Cairo, Germany, Southern California, and Las Vegas to audiences as small as five to as large as hundreds!

What to Expect
The Exceptionist's intellectual performance keeps the mind in question of it is own reality. What does it feel to lose control of our decisions? Can we shape the thoughts and actions of others? What if we alter our own memories? Can we bring about the ultimate coincidence? If mind reading were true, it would look like this!
Sleight of hand, psychology, influence, anticipation, predictions, illusions, memory feats, mind reading, the metaphysical, and more of the impossible, all come together in one show.
From the very young age of 10, Ali Said Jamal Eddine was performing memory feats for thousands of people in United Arab Emirates (UAE). It was with memory that his fascination with the mind begun.
Ali later took on the academic route and studied at the American University in Dubai. Ali made history when he became the first and only person to receive the prestigious President's Award for Student Excellence and the Valedicatorian award, in addition to other honors. Following was a fellowship that saw him take off to San Diego, California.
Although engineering is Ali's expertise, his fascination with the mind never ceased. He once again dived into the very depths of magic and psychological entertainment and since 2006, he was, and still is, an avid student of the art. In the process, he received training by some of the world's greatest performers including Armando Lucero, Paul Vigil, Paul Draper and others.
Ali performed privately and publicly in both UAE and the United States sharing his unique take on the art. His shows deliver a unique combination: being both educational and entertaining.
In October 2010, Ali debuted his recent Mind Matters show, and it was then that he was coined "The Exceptionist".
Today, with various professional acts, Ali continues to share the art of mind exceptions with the world, leaving an unprecedented mark on the mind.
