When you perform Mr. Lesley, what do you strive to make your audiences experience? Would it be scary and frightening experience, comedy and amazement, etc.

What kind of feeling do you like you give in your show?

Thank you,
Andrew
If you get bored go to www.a-miller.idz.net and watch some magic.

Hi Andrew,
Here is that, what my audiences experience:
magic + mindreading + mystery + comedy = Entertainment. That´s it in a nutshell.

Any questions? Feel free to ask!

I have never had the pleasure of seeing you perform, but when I noticed your posts list you as "The "Victor Borge" of Mentalism", I realized you had comedy in your performances. Victor Borge was one of my favorite entertainers. His passing saddened me.

Now I wish I could see you perform even more.

I wonder, what is your typical comedic role when performing mentalism? The typical comedic role for a magician is to seem bumbling and incompetent, only to have a magical surprise make everything right. Is this similar to how you use humor in mentalism?
Humans make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to create boredom. Quite astonishing.

Hello Bill,
Comedy is difficult to explain. A newspaper in Germany named me one time "The Victor Borge Of Mentalism" and I kept that statement in all my advertising matter. I use sight and verbal gags in my shows and I do a lot of ad libbing. Let´s call it "planned situation comedy".

Any questions? Feel free to ask!
