The Amazing Kreskin

The world’s foremost mentalist, the Amazing Kreskin, brings five decades of dramatic and often stunning mind reading to Bend in a special matinee performance

 “Kreskin tells people things about themselves that only they or a close friend would know,” promises the Tower’s executive director, Ray Solley. “As he says of himself, ‘Even now, I know what you’re thinking!”

A special message for Bend from Kreskin

With a showman’s flair, a comedian’s wit, and the credentials of a bona fide thought reader, Kreskin’s very name has become part of pop culture worldwide. Tom Hanks’s film “The Great Buck Howard” was fashioned after Kreskin’s life. Regarding the CBS series, David Letterman quipped, “Kreskin should sue the producers of the TV show,‘The Mentalist’ for stealing his act. He’s the best mentalist in the world and he’s not acting!” And Kreskin was the “magician” behind Johnny Carson’s “Carnac the Magnificent.” More recently, Kreskin has been seen on the Howard Stern, Jimmy Fallon, and Mike Huckabee talk shows.

For his performance at the Tower, Kreskin will, among other feats, ask that his paycheck be hidden by the audience somewhere in the theater during the show. He will attempt to find it; if he fails, he will forfeit his fee. Kreskin also offers $1,000,000 to anyone who proves he uses paid, secret assistants in any phase of his presentation to help him perform his mentalist “effects.”  

Due to the nature of this program, no children under 10 years old will be admitted.
