1. Paranormal Mind Reading Magic
Frederic Da Silva has been voted the Best Mentalist in Europe, and now he has his own Las Vegas show at Ballyâ€™s thatâ€™s blowing peopleâ€™s minds. Paranormal Mind Reading Magic showcases Fredericâ€™s very convincing ability to peer inside the minds of others, making even the skeptics in the crowd wonder if heâ€™s actually psychic.
Celebrity Radio calls him the â€śBest Vegas Showmanâ€ť, with a charismatic stage presence and great sense of humor that keeps the crowd on the edge of their seats. Frederic pulls off impossible feats like naming a person youâ€™re thinking of, or whatâ€™s in your pocket. With lots of audience interaction, you could be lucky enough to become part of the show!
2. Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis
Marc Savard began hypnotizing people as a profession when he was only 19, and is now one of the worldâ€™s most respected hypnotists. He works with pro athletes to bring home gold medals, and has one of the funniest and most remarkable shows in Las Vegas: Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis.
Audience members get a chance to volunteer and become the stars of the show. Marc Savard mesmerizes the volunteers to do hysterically funny things on stage that often leave the audience crying with laughter. Performing at Planet Hollywood, this uniquely entertaining show highlights the power of hypnosis like youâ€™ve never seen it before.
3. Banachekâ€™s Mind Games
Penn & Teller call Banachek the â€śGreatest Mentalism Act in the Worldâ€ť, but thereâ€™s something fishy about his show. Banachek doesnâ€™t believe in magic whatsoever, and encourages his audience members to hold the same skepticism. Even when you know that all of the illusions in Banachekâ€™s Mind Games are brilliantly subtle illusions, you will still find yourself wondering if heâ€™s tapping into the paranormal.
Banachek works as a consultant for many of the top magicians and mentalists in the world, including David Copperfield and Criss Angel, so you know heâ€™s really good at his craft. Performing at The STRAT, this mind-blowing show starts with an act that will have you gasping in astonishment, and holds up to this standard for the entire performance.
4. The Mentalist
Gerry McCambridge, also known as The Mentalist has wowed the world with his spookily accurate mind-reading abilities for decades. You may have seen his popular TV show on NBC, and now you can see him live on stage at Planet Hollywood. Readers of the Las Vegas Review Journal voted this stunning show the â€śBest Magic Showâ€ť in Vegas.
The experience is different every night because of the level of audience interaction, which makes the mind-reading feats even more astonishing. This is the longest-running mentalist show in Las Vegas for a reason: itâ€™s a funny and fascinating show that will make you wonder if what youâ€™re seeing on stage is real.
5. Lioz Show â€“ â€śThis Is Not Comedyâ€ť
Simon Cowell from Americaâ€™s Got Talent called Lioz a â€ścomedy geniusâ€ťâ€¦ but Lioz takes his craft very seriously. With a completely straight face, heâ€™ll tell you that he is skilled in the art of telekinesis, but his illusions are more hilarious than mysterious â€“ and thatâ€™s what makes this show such a hit.
Lioz Show â€“ â€śThis Is Not Comedyâ€ť features his well-known illusions as well as brand new, never-seen-before acts, and every single show is different from the one before it. There are fun chances for audience interaction, musical numbers, and some incredibly funny (sorry Lioz) illusions. You can see Lioz perform at Ballyâ€™s.
6. Hypnosis Unleashed Starring Kevin Lepine
Whatâ€™s more exciting than being on Fremont Street in Downtown Vegas? Going to an awesome show there! Hypnosis Unleashed Starring Kevin Lepine performs at 4 Queens and is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. You might even get a chance at becoming one of the stars of the show.
Kevin Lepine is known by many as the â€śrockstar of hypnosisâ€ť because of his fast-paced, witty stage presence. He takes volunteers from the audience and puts them in a trance where theyâ€™ll do just as he commands â€“ and the wacky things they do on stage are absolutely hilarious to watch. The showâ€™s family-friendly humor makes it a must-see with the kids.
7. Totally Mental
Comedian magician Vinny Grosso brings his charming wit and uncanny talent for mind-reading to the Las Vegas stage at Neonopolis on Fremont Street. His appearance on Americaâ€™s Got Talent made the country (and judges) fall in love with him. Heâ€™s also the only comedian magician to have fooled Penn and Teller twice on their show â€śFool Usâ€ť.
Totally Mental is a family-friendly show that will amaze adults and kids alike. Vinny seems to really get inside audience membersâ€™ heads, leaving you wondering â€śhow is this possible?â€ť Tons of audience participation keeps the show exciting and gives you a chance at becoming part of the show.
