How are you handling COVID-19 restrictions?
I’ll follow social distancing and masking guidelines in effect at the time.
Where do you perform?
Primarily within 30 miles of St. Louis, MO. Travel elsewhere is negotiable.
What types of events do you perform for?
I specialize in corporate and other formal events for adults. Generally speaking, attendees are all wearing business casual or formal attire. Any venue is generally fine.
What equipment do we need to have?
I bring everything I need for close-up and parlor mentalism. If you are looking for a stage show, you will likely already have the audio, video, and lighting equipment needed, which I’ll use as part of my performance. We can discuss the details based on your needs.
What is the fee?
The fee depends upon a number of factors, including the type of mentalism (close-up, parlor, stage), the venue, and the event duration, so I’ll need to collect some information from you before providing a quote. I accept check, cash, or credit/debit card. 50% is due at the time of booking, and the remainder is generally due on the event date and/or, if travel expenses are incurred, shortly after expense receipts are submitted. The exact terms and details are in the contract that you will have an opportunity to review.
What is your cancellation policy?
The cancellation fee is generally 50% of the performance fee. The exact terms and details are in the contract that you will have an opportunity to review.
What happens if you cancel?
I’ve never cancelled on a client before. But if I ever need to cancel, I’ll offer you two choices: (i) full refund of anything that you have paid or (ii) a replacement entertainer from a group of performers that I typically work with.
What is a mentalist?
A mentalist practices mentalism. A magician practices magic. Think of a mentalist like a magician who specializes in psychological games rather than dexterity. Whereas a magician might use sleight of hand to find your card, a mentalist will use mind games to determine which card you thought of.
