Phil and Ian are joined by Michael Murray of Mind FX.

The magicians talk about Michael’s life as a mentalist as opposed to a traditional ‘magician’ and how you should present yourself if you want the audience to believe in what you are doing.

Michael talks us through what he carries in his pockets on a daily basis, he explains the psychology behind how he has gained his powers (what the spectators think)  and how to break down barriers between the performer and the spectators pre conceived opinions of psychic / mentalist abilities.

Michael also discusses why mentalism might not be best suited for weddings and parties.

Stay tuned to the end where there is a discount code for Michael’s award winning book A Piece Of My Mind.
