“Colin Mcleod IS the future of mentalism. Some in our field are superb performers, others are immensely creative. Colin Mcleod is both. And that sets him apart from just about everyone.” -Ken Webber
"There’s a very short list of creators/performers in the magic community that I will sit up and pay close attention to when they speak. Sometimes they speak through their commercial releases and if I’m lucky enough to be their friends, I get to hear from them directly! Colin Mcleod is at the top of that list. If you get the chance to hear, see or read anything from Colin you WILL walk away with a fresh innovative perspective. I guarantee it.” -Bill Abbott
“Colin Mcleod is one of the greatest innovators of our time. I absolutely love Colin’s approach and performance style; he has given me so much food for thought in the past that I am forever indebted. He is ultra-quick minded and his material is outstanding. He is a mental force not to be reconciled with!” -Peter Turner
"Colin’s Mentalism is utterly practical and deeply diabolical. Some seriously clever stuff from a seriously nice man.” -Andy Nyman
“Colin Mcleod has interesting, creative and fun ideas about what mentalism can be, where it can go and how it should be presented. He devises powerful, head-scratching mysteries that take the entertainment value all the way up to 11, all of which he performs well and explains clearly without taking forever to do so. If there’s something else to want from a mentalism lecture, I don’t know what it is. Colin has a terrible haircut and an accent no-one can understand, but apart from that both he and his lectures are a treat. Watch, enjoy, learn and prepare to be fooled in the nicest possible way by a mind so sharp you could slice rocks with it.” -Ian Rowland
