Ken Weber in his great book Maximum Entertainment says that maybe 0.5 percent of your audience will have seen a live mentalism act before. I agree. I've never seen one and in my whole life I've only seen mentalism on TV only a few times.

I've got Osterlind's Mind Mysteries and Banacheck's PSI series, which show mentalism peformed before Scotty, Janine, Margaret and the other L&L regulars but are there any videos showing full acts performed in the real world? I don't care if there are no explanations; I have more material than I'll ever use. I just want to see a pro working. And BTW, if anyone knows of any pro appearing within a 100 miles of NYC or Philly, please let me know.

P.S. Buy Maximum Entertainment NOW if you haven't already! I read it cover to cover the day I got it. Excellent.

Check out the Annemann Act 2005 by Stewart Cumberland - it's a live show taped in front of a college crowd.

I don't know if he still has it available, but Ehud Segev (The Mentalizer) was offering a DVD of his Off-Broadway show and some other goodies. It's a great deal: the DVD is free, you only pay $5.99 (I think) for postage and handling.

Go to http://www.mentalizer.com ; if he's still offering this special GET IT!

Hi

A Dunninger DVD is also pretty good. Here's a description.

Live From Las Vegas. Now you can watch the Dunninger Show recreation as it was performed in front of a live audience at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada. Experience what a 1944 radio studio audience would have experienced. Watch three very special guest celebrities participate in some amazing telepathy experiments.Also included is a 20 minute conversation between Joe Atmore and NBC's The Mentalist Gerry McCambridge, winner of the prestigious Psychic Entertainers' Association Dunninger Award!

Hi jlibby,

The mentalizer DVD sounds very interested.
I'm in Canada, and I read in the website that they only ship to US?
Is this true?

I also just checked out the free DVD Ehud Segev (The Mentalizer) was offering. It's still available, but only to folks in the US.

Shame, that counts me out of that one as well.

Thanks for the tips everybody. I just ordered Segev's DVD. I found Cumberland's version of the Anneman act as a downloadable PDF ebook for $45 at his site:

http://www.mental-list.com/frontrowseat.htm

There's no mention of a DVD or tape. I'm not sure if I'll buy the ebook. From one point of view it's expensive for some notes added to a $3.00 ebook. On the other hand a complete half hour act from a genius like Annemean updated and annotated for today's audiences from a guy who is actually doing it is dirt cheap. Has anyone read Cumberland's ebook or seen him do the act?

The Dunninger DVD is selling for about $20 so that sounds like a bargain. It says it includes a 20 minute interview but can anyone tell me how long the actual act is? Since the act was originally on radio I'm guessing between 15 minutes and an hour.

I see no mention of Rowland's DVD on his site. Anyone have any more info? He does heartily endorse Andy Nyman's three DVD set though, so I might have to get that.

Thanks again everybody!

The stuart cumberland "anneman 2005 act" isn´t still available, but it´s a very good one and the ebook is worth the 45$.

James Biss DVD "messing with minds" for 20$ is also good. It´s only the performance, but very interesting.

Regarding Ehud Segev's DVD: I think a couple of people have posted that he actually will ship outside the US, but it might cost a little more. Why don't you e-mail him and ask? You've got nothing to lose by doing so. We've communicated by e-mail some and he appears to be one of the really good guys. Tell him Joe sent you! Smile

see ya!

I bought the Kreskin DVDs from a Canadian company on eBay this afternoon. US$33.93 delivered for 8.5 hours of Kreskin.

BTW, icy_rabbit, did he do many recognizable classics (bank night, seven keys to baldpate etc.)?

There are many good Shows listed above. I also want to add James Biss with his Messing with minds. His live Video really is great example of audience management. Learned also a lot from it.

The first Marc Salam special on PAX tv a few years ago was his stage Mentalism show.
ALSO - Hocus Pocus magic was selling a half hour DVD of a Chan Canasta show from 1960.
