Wayne Hoffman had an appearance on the television show "phenomenon" and still does professional shows today. anybody hear of him? is he popular at all to people today? the reason why i ask is because i don't hear much about him to frequently anymore. i've been to his shows, possibly 5 different shows i would say, the last one i've seen being easily about a year ago. Another thing i would like to know is if he travels far distances and does shows all over the place. i would love to see another one of his shows and see his progress in showmanship currently.

I know exactly who you are talking about. He isn't that good in my opinion.

yea i agree, actually the reason why i don't think he is too good is his claim that he is a "mentalist". that bothers me sometimes because even lay people know that being a "mentalist" probably isn't even possible. i don't know about other people's opinions.... this is just mine........ i think it sounds fake when magicians claim to have the ability to read peoples minds.

Do you even know what a mentalist is? I will give you a hint, there's a huge difference between a psychic and a mentalist.

Mentalism is a performing art in which its practitioners, known as mentalists, use mental acuity, principles of stage magic, and/or suggestion to present the illusion of mind reading, psychokinesis, extra-sensory perception, precognition, clairvoyance or mind control.

-source, Wikipedia

Above is the wikipedia information on what the real meaning to "mentalism", was i mistaken to what the art of mentalism actually is? I apologize if i was.
