"Every generation needs someone to come along and reinvent mentalism for contemporary audiences, bringing the art up to date and re-imagining how it can be presented and performed. That's what Timothy Krass is doing, and he does it superbly well. He's young, cool, fun, creative and charismatic, and has already secured his place among the greats. Watch and learn." -Ian Rowland

"Timothy Krass is one of the most charming performers you'll ever meet, and one of the most thoughtful too. His performances are some of the most cleverly thought-out, theatrical demonstrations of mentalism I've seen. In an industry bloated by creators who have no real understanding of what is needed to perform in the real world, Timothy cuts through with his incredibly practical material that has been created with one thing in mind: knocking the socks off of real audiences - and isn't that what we all want?!" -Ken Dyne

"Whilst there are many mentalists that I admire, there are very few inspire me as much as Timothy Krass. His character, his energy and his passion for the art are very much unparalleled.
Timothy is not just a mentalist, he is so much more, he is an artist, a philosopher, a poet. Having had the privilege of seeing him perform and reading his thoughts over the past two years, I am very envious of those who are about to experience this for the very first time.
Welcome to a whole new way of thinking, welcome to Timothy Krass’ world!" -Michael Murray

"Timothy Krass is one of my favourite performers! His performances are slick, elegant and he’s by far one of the smartest people I know." -Peter Turner

What will he teach?

Quick Opener - Everyone stands and one by one the audience members sit down based on their thoughts until only one remains standing. The standing spectator then has their mind read in the most direct way. A 40-60 second high-impact opener!

Mental Pickpocket - Beautifully choreographed PIN reveal with an original pickpocket sequence.

Tossed Out Die - Presentation involving 4 people and several (often darkly funny) additional reveals. Can also be used with a standard tossed out deck.

Hypnosis - Hypnosis Set with no hypnosis needed! Featuring the Waveless Wave Technique.

Dreams - REAL TIME Dream revelation with a member of the audience.

Musical Finish - Not mentalism, but a piece of music. Wonderfully magical.

Who is he?

Born in Germany, trained in New Zealand and now based in Amsterdam, Timothy Krass has traveled 6 of the 7 continents with his show. He currently performs in theater settings almost exclusively.

Timothy won Dutch Champion of Mentalism 2014-2015, Nostradamus D’Or 2016 - 2018 ('Best European Mentalist’) & the Cagliostro Award 2016 - 2018 ('Best European Mentalist Audience Award') and was the youngest ever recipient for all of these three. He fooled Penn & Teller in 2016 and was Holland’s Got Talent Finalist in 2017.

He is also a two times TEDx Speaker: once in 2017 ("How to Manipulate Emotions") and once in 2018 with part of his show ("This is How I Steal a PIN Code”).

He released his first mentalism book in 2011 at just 16 years.

Krass just finished touring through 65 theatres in the Netherlands with a solo-show which is set to return in fall. He is currently preparing another live tour in Germany, after the successful release of a communication tactics book in Germany that went on to be Amazon #1 bestseller twice.

Timothy finished a study at a Dutch performing arts academy simultaneously to studying philosophy. His philosophy degree was centred around his thesis on “Philosophy of Magic”.

Best Purchase I've Made in a Long Time Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 5th, 2019
I just finished watching both the act and explanation. I can already see myself returning to this act very often. I was blown away with the attention to detail Timothy put into this act. As he explains, this is material comes from his actual show. The act is built in a way that is both lighthearted and entertaining. Beyond that, this material is fantastic and worthy of all attention I'm sure it will get.

I highly suggest picking this up and just watching how he interacts with the participants. You can tell they are having fun and are engaged- something you don't always see in mind reading shows. Beyond that, you will learn some great ideas for your own work. This is already one of my favorite acts and my favorite purchase in a very long time.

Interesting ideas Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 6th, 2019
I'm sure many will rag on him for using some high end products, but he does make a point about using them creatively. As he mentioned, I always wonder when someone pays hundreds to even a thousand or more and then uses that product to get the name of a card or a two digit number. It boggles my mind.

Anyway, he is a fun and lively performer with some good combination of ideas.

VERY NIIIICE Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 13th, 2019
I enjoyed this alot, Timone gave alot of information and the effects were very strong and engaging. The speed of his P**KS are insane, that was worth the price alone. I really enjoyed seeing he work on p** S*** and how he handled it. This demonstrated the ability to get 'hits' for free and very little work on your behalf, well done whatever I'm meant to refer to you as!!

Unethical Advertisement Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 5th, 2019
When I first viewed some of these routines before purchasing the lecture, I assumed that a well-known “controversial” method was used.
When I saw that these routines were being presented in a lecture, I assumed that I was wrong about the method since Penguin doesn’t normally feature acts that rely heavily on this method (I can only think of one or two examples, which used this method less heavily).
It turns out, the “controversial” method was the correct one.

I feel cheated because the advertisement, in my opinion, made it seem like this method wasn’t being used at all or at least very sparingly. If they had been more upfront about this, I very likely wouldn’t have purchased the lecture.

To be clear, I have nothing against the method itself. I use it when I feel it is appropriate. I just wish Penguin would’ve been more upfront about what was being offered, as they basically sold me a couple of routines that were already in my repertoire.

If the advertisement would’ve been honest, I’d likely be giving this 5 stars for the quality of instruction and information being presented. But instead, I find myself very disappointed.

Amazing Lecture! Report this review

Go watch this lecture now!

Timothy Krass explains a big part of his theater tour! The effects Timothy explains are verry powerful and are hard hitting!

Not only the effects that are explained are great, Timothy also goes over all of his scripting and you can learn a lot from that!

Timothy Krass lecture is already one of the best lectures of this year!
