Steven Brown
Mind reader and close-up magician
Ask yourself this “what is real?” or even better ask yourself “Do I believe psychic ability is real?” I am not a psychic and nor will I pretend to be one; this show is based around the tricks that are used in traditional magic and in the world of the so-claimed ‘supernatural’. This combined with showmanship and hypnosis will transport you and create an interesting show.  Every decision you make on the night will lead us closer to the ‘grand-finale’ – the ultimate and most personal form of mind-reading ‘the oracle act’
What you will see will look like genuine psychic ability but is what we perceive real?  I will read your mind! I will transport you to a new world! No actors, no stooges, 100% pure mind-reading.
