The Mentalist Las Vegas - Tickets & Review
One of the best Las Vegas shows that combine mind-boggling magic, hilarious comedy and mid-reading skills that are second to none is the Mentalist. The performance by artist Gerry McCambridge is an ideal way for everyone to spend a night of bewildered fun while visiting Sin City.
Gerry McCambridge is no stranger to mind-reading and when he opens his show guests get a firsthand taste of his masterful skills when he begins with a quick magic trick that leads to an incredible accounting of his assistant’s thoughts. The performance moves quickly from one-line comedy pundits to interesting magic tricks that include sleight of the hand and a couple of mysterious illusions that set the audience’s imagination on fire. As the show progresses forward, McCambridge brings the audience into play and invites several members onto the stage where he meticulously mines their minds for random thoughts in order to control the outcome of their thought pattern with his fabulous mind-reading talents.
The marvelous nail gun trick with his assistant is a scary highlight of the show that incorporates him shooting himself blindfolded. The performance is etching with nice choreography that enhances the show every step of the way and his assistants are included in each step of the process. Another great thing about the Mentalist is that every show is different based on the audience participants that arrive on stage to have their mind examined.
Overall, the Mentalist is a top notch magical night of mind-reading fun that leaves a few laughs on the table at the cost of the audience. There is no other show in Las Vegas that will make you laugh, smile and bewildered as you try to keep your thoughts away from the master of mind-reading.
