I'm the Mentalist, Matt Cooper: Entertainment for high-end parties in NYC. I perform mind games, thought reading, and other mental mysteries -- imagine the impossibilities! As a Mentalist, I have over a decade of experience, entertaining groups that range from Fortune 500 company VIPs to exclusive, private party guests. In addition to my own work, I also spent two years on tour with Olivier award-winning celebrity and master mentalist Derren Brown, who was the inspiration for the hit TV show, The Mentalist. Today, I live in New York City and travel the world as a professional Mentalist, performing both close-up and on stage.
WHAT'S A MENTALIST //
A Mentalist uses the five known senses to create the illusion of a sixth: telepathy, mind-control, hypnosis, memory feats, predictions of the future, and more. It's a unique kind of mental magic known as Mentalism. Think "psychic magician", if that helps... When booked for events, I typically appear as a Mystery Guest, wow-ing unsuspecting party goers with a concoction of mental mysteries.
IS A MENTALIST RIGHT FOR YOUR EVENT //
A mentalist is ideal for sophisticated events brimming with interesting, bright, and skeptical people who think they've seen it all. These types of events can include (but are not limited to) special celebrations, corporate events, private galas, lavish parties, and swanky soirées.
WHAT TO EXPECT //
If you're interested, invite me to perform close-up at your next event during the cocktail hour or reception -- as your personal mystery guest. I'll mingle and perform mental demonstrations that are fun and light hearted. Later, small groups may sit with me for a stranger experience...
- Guessing pin numbers.
- Sketching images they're thinking of.
- Revealing memories, like the fist person they kissed. And much more left to surprise.
Like immersive theater for the mind, it stirs up conversation and makes for a great story. Availability is limited, so get in touch to inquire about booking, pricing, or next weeks lottery numbers.
