"One of the greatest thought readers of our time." -Uri Geller
Who on earth is Colin Mcleod?!
A mind reader, a Mentalist, a Psychological Illusionist ... Call it whatever you like! Colin’s amazing skills having been taking him all around the world, performing his unique brand of entertainment for everyone from A-list celebrities to appearing on prime time TV shows, from theaters to comedy clubs ... you name it, Colin has literally performed everywhere imaginable all with the same astonishing results. Colin has perfected his skills not just in messing with his audience’s minds, but insuring they all love the entire experience! Ever since reading the Sherlock Holmes stories as a child, Colin has been obsessed with creating his own techniques for essentially reading people. Having trained as a Forensic Scientist and specialised in Criminal Profiling, he has taken all of his psychological skills and background hypnosis to design a truly unique entertainment genre.
Having now appeared on ITV’s 'Penn and Teller: Fool Us’ and ITV’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, performed in Caeser’s Palace in Las Vegas, The Holywood Magic Castle, the International Magic Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the South Tyneside Magic Convention, The Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, The Edinburgh Festival Theatre, The Lyceum Theatre, The Edinburgh International Conference Centre ... And having performed at events for organisations including Santander, The National Health Service, Flexitronics, Scotmid, Camelot, General Electric, Amey, KPMG, Burness, Reids Reins ... As well as being brought in as an expert to speak about the mind, persuasion and creativity at Kilmarnock College, Cumbernauld College, Dundee College, Cardonald College, Glasgow Caledonian University, as well coaching the senior management teams for some of the world’s leading industries ... It’s fair to say Colin is building an impressive CV, and as more and more people are becoming aware of him, he is becoming even more in demand. Unlike a number of other performers, Colin is a full time professional performer and speaker ensuring you’re getting a talent of the highest caliber as it doesn’t clash with any other ‘day job.’ ... This IS his ‘day job.’

Mystifying Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2014
The Penguin Lectures are just about the best thing to happen to magic in the past decade, but this is sadly one of the weaker entries in the series.
Colin's performance is a mixture of store bought tricks and rather heavy handed adjustments to existing methods. The set starts badly with a rather transparent 50/50 guessing game and goes downhill from there. Colin works as a motivational speaker for corporations and he carries something of that aura with him - not necessarily a positive for a mystery performer. On the plus side, the lecture is long and is value for money if you are already a fan. But those looking for more dynamic, less stolid work would be better looking at the Peter Turner lecture. Those after more traditional mentalism should check out the Osterlind lecture. Colin's work sits rather uncomfortably in a no-man's land in the middle.
A superb lecture! Report this review

This was a fabulous 4 hour lecture.
Colin gave great advice and structured his demonstration on how to structure an act, whether it be for stage, parlor, or impromptu close-up.
We got to see him perform his Facade version of the Bookless Book Test, and he gave a great close-up version of
a close-up Q&A act. With some personalization for your own character, this is really packs small - plays huge.
I also loved his change in presentation approach of Sneak Thief. This made perfect sense and is more in line with his demonstrated powers.
At the end Colin demonstrates a variation of his Furtive Switch (that was on his Opening Minds DVD) routine. This was a thing of beauty. With a small group of people, 2 business cards and a pen, Colin demonstrates how to send thoughts to 3 people, and then he reads the minds of those 3 people. There is justification for the writing and the necessary action. Because everyone was 'in on' the thoughts to be read, everyone is invested in the outcome. The business card handling looks so clean. There's no where for the spectator to go on how he does this.
Colin's emphasis is how you can take elements we've seen before and modify them to make your material unique from anyone else.
There is much more in these 4 hours than that - but those were the biggest points I got out of it. This was a fantastic lecture!
Awesome lecture Report this review

I have attended a lot of lectures in the last 30 years including a couple from Ascanio, Tamariz, Max Maven, Roberto Giobbi, Pat Page, Michael Ammar and just too many legends to mention and I would still put this lecture in the top 5 that I've attended either in person or virtually.
Every second of it was solid gold and I can say hand on heart that my own performances will be better for having attended this lecture.
Don't think, just buy it! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2013
I bought this late last night, watched more than half already and think its fantastic.
The effects so far all have some great thinking behind them and one "calling idea" for a prediction effect that I think is worth the price of the download alone.
The added touches to the "bookless book test" has really made me want to perform this routine in my shows.
One of the things that stand out to me, is Colin's honesty. I feel that everything he does, says he does, says he doesn't do and why he doesn't do it is coming from a very honest place. No B***s**t, no pipe dreams.
Well that it for now, typing this on a London bus is making me feel awfully sick but I just wanted to share how excited I am about this Lecture.
Thanks for sharing such great ideas Colin.

I like ,really, very much,the Colin's ideas.
I use some of them on stage.
I,also, have ,his wonderfull set of 4 dvds.
He is really,one of the best mentalists,that i know.
I have kept many ideas in his lecture.
For exemple,i did not know that a ''Six sense 2.5 device'',could exist,for miracles,like ''coin in hand'',or,''free will''...
Thank you very Much Colin Mac Léod.
It would be a pleasure to know you.

Colin is smart, funny and really captivating. Why? Because he is actually an interesting person. It's really rare when a magician/mentalist is not only creative but really good at communicating. It looks like Colin has been lecturing 20+ years the way he presented his material so well.
He started off with a full act and follows by explaining everything. More importantly WHY he did everything.
If you want a list of effects, you can read the other reviews. Even if you remove all the effects, you would still be throughly entertained.
Really enjoyed it, wouldn't mind if he came back for a part 2!
Really Nice Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 24th, 2013
I purchased this a few weeks ago and Colin does a really good job.....HOWEVER, you need to purchase almost $400 in supplies to make it all happen...I guess if you can afford it then it's great
The finest mentalism taught! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 1st, 2013
Colin came out and blew everyone away with his first effect. AND.....he taught it!
Almost 4 hrs. long of material you will use! MInd blowing effects from one of the top performers working today.
The lecture contained hard hitting mentalism with no fluff. It was an education just watching him work the room and you can apply what he taught to all the magic and mentalism you currently perform!
Amazing Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 1st, 2013
Personally, I don't perform a lot of Colin's past material as they are demonstrated. However, the techniques behind those routines has inspired many many routines, variations and improvements of stuff I perform.
I must say that not only the routines Colin teaches here are highly intelligent, but his way of thinking to give off the routine is more helpful than performing the routine itself.
I highly recommend anything put out by this genius, and if people learn to read between the lines, they will get so much out of this.
A good mixture of stage and close-up mentalism Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 1st, 2013
Although the description days 2 hours this lecture rules about 3 3/4 hours, the last hour spent answers questions. If you're a stage or close-up magicians you'll appreciate Colin's out-of-the-box thinking, and I'll guarantee you'll find something in this lecture that love.
