With a showman’s flair, a comedian’s wit, and the capacities of a bona fide Mentalist or thought reader, The Amazing Kreskin has, for 5 decades, dramatized the unique facets of the human mind, his own! His very name has become an integral part of pop culture throughout the world, invoked in comedy clubs, comic strips, print stories, and TV shows. When Johnny Carson played the character “Carnac the Magnificent” on the “Tonight Show”, he was spoofing the Amazing Kreskin. Kreskin a favorite guest on Johnny’s show and Merv Griffin has also been a regular on Howard Stern, David Letterman, “Regis & Kathy Lee” and many others. Currently he makes frequent appearances on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and “Mike Huckabee.”
In 2008, Tom Hanks produced and co-starred with John Malkovich in “The Great Buck Howard” which was fashioned after the Amazing Kreskin’s life. To quote David Letterman, “Kreskin should sue the producers of the TV show, “The Mentalist” for stealing his act. He’s the best mentalist in the world and he’s not acting!” As a special part of the performance, he lets the audience hide his paycheck, and if he can’t find it – he forfeits his fee! He offers $1,000,000.00 to anyone that can prove that he employs paid secret assistants or confederates to help him perform his mentalist “effects.”
Additionally for this visit to the Oak Ridge Theater, Kreskin will have a ghost sighting by audience members on stage of spirits that haunt East Tennessee! For over 50 years Kreskin has been telling people things about themselves that only they or a close friend could possibly know!
To view what the ghost sighting will be like watch the video from “Regis & Kathy Lee.” The same way he controls the minds of the participants convincing them that Regis is invisible, he’ll have them seeing ghosts. Also check out his appearance on Howard Stern. He has a guest channeling the spirit of Sam Kinison.
