RODERICK RUSSELL -ALMOST PSYCHIC
You don’t have to be psychic to read minds.
Just fiendishly clever!
What would you say if someone told you that they could hear your innermost thoughts, read what’s on your mind, tell you intimate details of your past and what’s going to happen in your future?
If you’re like most people, you’d say “Prove it!”
“If Sherlock Holmes had a stage show, this would be it!”
Roderick Russell does not claim to be psychic, or possess any supernatural ability. Nevertherless, he will read your mind and reveal your thoughts in such startling detail that you’ll swear there’s no other explanation!
Through the use of applied psychology, misdirection and a healthy dose of good old fashioned manipulation, Roderick Russell takes the traditional skills of the stage psychic to all new, never-before-seen heights. Though he’ll show you precisely how he’s doing it through skill and the aid of behavioral science, you’ll gasp in awe at the remarkable nature of the human mind and the limitless potential that it possesses. Using cold reading, lie detection, suggestion and persuasion, he’ll show you precisely how public your “private” thoughts really are – at least to someone that’s paying attention.
Not only does Roderick Russell playfully meddle in your mind, he even turns the tables on himself to show you precisely what’s possible, when you question what’s possible. As one of only 50 full-time professional sword swallowers in the world, he’ll demonstrate this deadly art with wit, charm and grace. The holy grail of mind-over-body stunts, sword swallowing is an ancient demonstration of the power of the mind and Roderick brings it into the 21st century for discerning audiences to witness. A feat unlike any other, and a rare, visceral treat in a world that has been anesthetized by special effects.
Fun, irreverent, captivating and amazing, Roderick Russell gets into your head, rummages around and puts it all on stage* for an evening of exceptional entertainment.
*only willing volunteers are used, and nothing of a sensitive nature will be revealed.
