Bio

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 six 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.

During the past 50 years Kreskin has had a television series, his own board game by Milton Bradley, 20 published books, and a major motion picture inspired by his work.

In the 1970s, Kreskin headlined his own television series for five and a half seasons called The Amazing World of Kreskin, which can now be viewed on www.hulu.com. The airline industry estimates that Kreskin has flown over 3 million miles, to reach a vast international audience with his unique brand of Mentalism.

To reveal his remarkable diversity, John Romero, a leading gaming authority quotes in his book, "Las Vegas The Untold Story": "Kreskin is the most dangerous person in the world with a deck of cards. The casinos would rather deal to Willie Sutton".

Academy Award-winning actor/producer Tom Hanks released in 2009 the feature film, The Great Buck Howard. It is announced at the end of the movie that the inspiration for the main character is, indeed, The Amazing Kreskin. That character is played by the star of the movie, John Malkovich.

In the 2010 movie, Dinner for Schmucks, the character played by Zach Galifianakis has as his hero and influence The Amazing Kreskin, which further exemplifies the wide scope of Kreskin's exposure and attention. It is showcased with his recurring appearances on Johnny Carson, David Letterman, Regis Philbin, and most recently Jimmy Fallon, Neil Cavuto and Howard Stern.

2014 brought a whole new realm to Kreskin's arsenal when he mentally trained three up and coming boxers to victory. One of the winners was Heather "The Heat" Hardy, and Kreskin was further brought in to prepare and condition Heather mentally for a contest of worldwide dimension. In October 2014, Kreskin was brought into the ring to join Heather in the celebration of her success; a success which Kreskin helped prepare the winner for in the preceding months. Heather had just won the WBC International Junior Featherweight Championship of the World.

Through the years, Kreskin has received worldwide recognition for extraordinary predictions, often dealing with international affairs, and sports. On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Kreskin predicted the 2012 United States Presidential Election, 18 months before Election Day. As revealed on Fox television for the 2016 Super Bowl, Kreskin made three predictions. He foresaw the deciding quarter of the game, the winning team, and their final score.

In March 2016 Kreskin released his 20th book entitled, In Real Time, featuring his major predictions for the next several hundred years.

The day after Donald Trump was elected to the Presidency, Fox Television News revealed that Kreskin predicted Trump's election 11 months ahead of time, Live on December 9th, 2015 on FOX 5 Good Day DC Show in Washington, DC.

Kreskin now offers the sum of One Million Dollars to anyone who can prove that he employs paid secret assistants, or confederates, or utilizes hidden, secret, electronic devices to accomplish his mental presentations.

At 83 years of age, Kreskin shows no signs of slowing down. He continues to perform his legendary live shows in front of packed audiences around the world, playing over 200+ dates a year.

THE AMAZING KRESKIN'S DARK PREDICTION FOR FACEBOOK AND MARK ZUCKERBERG HAS COME TRUE PRECISELY ON SCHEDULE AMID HOUSE AND SENATE HEARINGS

World's Foremost Mentalist Proclaimed in 2012: 'In six years Facebook will not exist the way it does today' and foresaw 'a dramatic new turn'

NEW YORK (April 12, 2018) - This week's House and Senate committee testimony by Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg precisely parallels a prediction made six years ago by the world's foremost mentalist, THE AMAZING KRESKIN. The revelation arrives just as his new off-Broadway show, "The Amazing Kreskin LIVE," is opening tonight.

In 2012, in a flurry of media coverage that included interviews in Forbes and New York Magazine, Kreskin issued a dark prediction for the future of Facebook and its billionaire founder. The bottom line of Kreskin's prediction, he told New York, was that "in six years Facebook will not exist the way it does today." He further elaborated "I do not see Facebook's future being in the same condition, state or with the same image or persona that it possesses today... I predict a dramatic new turn which may not have the same face or recognition as we know it now."

Bear in mind that Kreskin stated this prediction in 2012 and specified that it would see its fruition in six years. In other words, 2018.

While his prediction originally caught the media's attention while Facebook was experiencing a lackluster IPO performance, Kreskin has on many occasions publicly stated: "I'm not a financial expert by any means." Yet his comments on government activities, social movements, etc., have drawn attention all over the world. Scores of media outlets have shown interest in Kreskin's perspective on Facebook. But it was only because of a constant barrage of questions dealing with Facebook that Kreskin decided to take on the scenario surrounding the development of Zuckerberg's baby at the time. Kreskin credited the billionaire founder as a young man of "staggering success."

Kreskin wants to assure everyone that he was not consulted, nor did he offer the questions and interrogation that Zuckerberg received in the government hearing this past week.

"The Amazing Kreskin LIVE," opens tonight runs through Sunday, April 28 at Theatre Row - Lion Theatre, 410 W. 42nd St., NYC 10036. Tickets, at $37.25 & $52.25, on sale at www.telecharge.com or by phone at 212-239-6200.

'The Amazing Kreskin LIVE' opens April 12 at Theatre Row

NEW YORK (February 15, 2018) - "Astounding." "Flabbergasting." "Incredible."

The three-week residency will showcase the legendary mentalist's you-gotta-see-'em-to-believe-'em abilities as a reader of people's thoughts which have mesmerized - and yes, amazed - fans of all ages around the world for some six decades. Marvel as Kreskin ascertains the suit and value of cards selected randomly by audience members. Watch in wonder as he displays his unprecedented mental powers by reciting information written in secret by those in attendance.

And, of course, Kreskin will climax each performance of "The Amazing Kreskin LIVE!" with his signature piece, in which he requests that his check be hidden somewhere in the venue. If he fails to find it, he will forfeit that show's fee.

To confirm the legitimacy of this and his other awesome feats of psychic literacy, Kreskin now offers the sum of One Million Dollars to anyone who can prove that he employs paid secret assistants, or confederates, or utilizes hidden, secret, electronic devices to accomplish his mental presentations. Not surprisingly, the bounty never has been claimed.

As for the upcoming off-Broadway run, Kreskin counts it among his numerous career highlights (which include late-night TV stints with Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman, as well as 88 appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, and his own hit TV series, The Amazing World of Kreskin).

"I've spent my entire adult life travelling the world performing for presidents, kings and the elite of dozens of nations, but never have I been more excited about an engagement than this one," says Kreskin. "To have the opportunity to perform for New York audiences on an extended basis is one of the great honors and privileges of my career."

WORLD'S FOREMOST MENTALIST, THE AMAZING KRESKIN, EXTENDS STREAK PREDICTING SUPER BOWL OUTCOME

Safe and Lockbox Opened This Morning at NJ Lexus Dealership to Correctly Reveal the PHILADELPHIA EAGLES as Super Bowl LII Champions ... and more!

WHIPPANY, NJ (February 5, 2018) - THE AMAZING KRESKIN officially extended his decade-long streak of predicting the correct winner of the Super Bowl this morning, when a safe containing his forecast was opened at a New Jersey car dealership to reveal the Philadelphia Eagles as the new World Champions.

Also found inside the safe was paper on which Kreskin had written the number 8. That number, of course, turned out to be the difference in the final score, as the Eagles beat the Patriots by eight points, 41-33.

"I had a hunch at the time that the number 8 was going to have an important significance in the game but that's all I knew, so I wrote it down even though I had no idea what that hunch meant," said Kreskin. "It turned out that number ultimately represented the final point spread!"

Kreskin's prediction was revealed at 9 a.m. this morning here at Lexus of Route 10 in Whippany, the dealership owned by 77 WABC RADIO/New York personality Tom Maoli. Kreskin personally delivered his prediction Saturday afternoon to Maoli at the dealership, where it was immediately sealed in a steel lockbox inside the dealership's safe.

"I risked losing $10,000 with this prediction, because I always like to back up my intuitions monetarily," said Kreskin. "This is not unlike what I've become famous for doing at every one of my shows around the world, when I have my paycheck hidden within the venue and risk forfeiting my fee if I don't find it. I'm not playing games - I'm only predicting their outcomes!"
