It can mean many things. Mentalism has some very strong roots in Israel. However live entertainment in general is much different there than in other countries. Mentalism is not a mainstream performance art even in the U.S. or U.K. Popularity and the perception of the art is often based on the number of commercial performance venues, television and media representation, and commercialism.

I don't believe there is a strong market or venues for mentalism which is why so many there turn to t.v. or video mediums (youtube, etc.) of which typically only a handful (a few) become popular. In fat I'm sure there are many more than you mentioned however these are the most well-known due to their use and visibility of these mediums.

It may also mean that exposure has limited its acceptance by the public or masses which is at least somewhat necessary for popularity, which is why Lior and other focus on a larger scale (Europe, worldwide/international, etc.) Plus many from your area present themselves as real and are not as much into the whoe NLP/body language, mental magic types of mentalism.

I don't know - I was thinking perhaps you meant tv shows.

Live shows its hard to say.

I don't know the Israeli scene in particular but I cant see it as being hard from how theatre shows for anywhere else in the world.

Its proberly about marketing and consistency. And the similar dynamics to other types of performance, and perhasplittle to do with the actual mentalism itself. ( though obviously peopel will need a solid show.)

Generally more famous performers are going to get more bookings and be able to book shows/tours more easily, as they have name recognition, and perhaps a good fan base , so will sell tickets.

It really depends how people book shows as well, some venues will book in the performers, but often the performers are booking into the theatres and then relying on the ticket sales. This though requires budgets and the ability again to knwo that there is an audience is there. I don't know if this answers your question or not.

For my taste, Lior Suchard is by far number one at this time in Israel. But there are many top performers there including Lior Suchard, Nimrod, and many more. Besides being performers, many of these folks are creators & ideas people too. Do a Google search with the term Israeli Mentalist and see what comes up.

The wonderful thing about Israel is that there seems to be a large audience who have become accustomed over the years to mind reading entertainment and seek it out - going back to the 1970s with Uri Geller. That means there are some fantastic performers there in a very competitive market, and the great thing is that they seem to share ideas generously and support each other as mentors.
