“I am a huge fan of Mentalism and I consider Ross (Johnson) to be one of the absolutely convincing practitioners in this field. …I honestly feel he is the most convincing mentalist I have ever witnessed. I remember being spellbound the first time I watched Ross perform his classic Blindfold Act in a small nightclub. There was a slightly edgy sense of self-irritation in his performance that I just loved. If he didn’t get it quite right, it seemed to bug him and drive him further into uncovering hidden details. He is truly a master of the wonderful world of mind reading.” - Nick Lewin
“Not only is Ross a wonderful friend and confidant; he is also the deliverer of the strongest performance of mystery I’ve ever witnessed.” - Paul Vigil
“Ross Johnson? He’ll make you shit your pants.” - Jay Marshall
