No a mentalist isn’t someone who truly claims to be able to predict the future. However after Keir’s show you will really start to questions that notion. A mentalist act is merely a demonstration of how information can be drawn out from people using a variety of techniques ranging from closely guarded magician’s secret techniques to simple cold reading. Other discreet techniques are employed to make people feel as if they have a free choice in a selection when perhaps it is not so free after all. Keir never claims to have supernatural powers but any good mentalist will leave you with the impression that they do. This is simply a magical demonstration yet people regularly approach Keir and ask him to tel them about their lost loved ones or future success or failures in life.
