The Mastermind Show with Curtis The Mentalist
My Guest Has Worked With Robin Williams, David Bowie, Steven Spielberg, and Orson Welles, Just To Name A Few

My Guest Has Worked With Robin Williams, David Bowie, Steven Spielberg, and Orson Welles, Just To Name A Few

August 16, 2021
I have a very special guest on the show today...I told you about him last week.  I can't tell you how thrilled I am to have him sitting and chatting with me today.  He's a man who has circled the entertainment globe a number of times.  He has some great stories to share with us from over 50 years in the entertainment business as a comedy magician, actor, speaker, and variety entertainer.  He's performed for and worked with such world-renown names such as David Bowie, Kenny Rogers, Steven Spielberg, and Orson Welles, just to name a few.  Originally from London, he's entertained British Royalty, American Presidents, Business Legends and Hollywood Icons.  In Las Vegas he's performed at Bally's, Caesar's Palace, Harrah's, and the Luxor and has been regular featured performer on most major cruise ship lines.  In my opinion, this is a guy who has just done it all--he's  had a wonderful career in the world of magic, comedy and entertainment.  Ladies and gentlemen please welcome with me, Mr. Nick Lewin.

The Right Way To Tickle A Rat, Short Attention Spans, and A Cool Mind Reading Stunt You Can Do

The Right Way To Tickle A Rat, Short Attention Spans, and A Cool Mind Reading Stunt You Can Do

August 10, 2021

Did you know there's a RIGHT way and a WRONG way to tickle a rat?  What happens when you DON'T tickle them properly?

I also talk about the decreasing length of people's attention spans and the effect it seems to be having on our society's overall mental health, as well as teaching an amazing old trick that was recently called to memory from many years ago that you can learn in just seven short minutes and blow the minds of your staff, friends, family, and co-workers!

I’m A YouTube Bad Boy, Simone Biles’ Mental Health, and Our Favorite Serial Killer is Back

I’m A YouTube Bad Boy, Simone Biles’ Mental Health, and Our Favorite Serial Killer is Back

August 2, 2021

Well, I've gone and got myself in some pretty serious trouble with YouTube.  Two of my videos have been taken down and my attempts to appeal to YouTube and Fremantle Media have resulted in nothing.  Pretty frustrating going up against these media/platform giants as they can pretty much do whatever they damn well please.  One more strike and they can shut down my channel completely.   

The incident with Simone Biles' withdrawal from the Olympics is supposedly due to "mental health" but is it possible it is because of something else?  What is this "something else?"  Who is our "favorite serial killer?" Why did they take down my videos?  

Well, listen to the episode and I'll tell you!

Also, there will be no August 7th Mastermind Show at the Loony Bin in Wichita.

Next public show is in Tulsa, August 14th @ 5 PM

Golden Buzzer: Léa Kyle AGT Audition–Did She Deserve It?

Golden Buzzer: Léa Kyle AGT Audition–Did She Deserve It?

July 5, 2021

Golden Buzzer 2021--Americas Got Talent quick change Lea Kyle made quite an impression on the judges. Curtis gives his professional magician reaction to this act, or what is more like a crazy mind reader reaction to her performance. Lea Kyle gets Golden Buzzer on Americas Got Talent from Heidi Klum recently, and it was a wonderful and highly emotional experience for her. Anytime a girl wins Golden Buzzer on the show (or anyone for that matter), the tears are almost guaranteed to flow. And whenever a quick change act gets golden buzzer on Americas Got Talent, it is even more emotional. I'm very excited to see lady magicians getting the recognition they deserve for their amazing talents!

9-Year-Old Magician Shoji Baffles Judges on America’s Got Talent

9-Year-Old Magician Shoji Baffles Judges on America’s Got Talent

June 28, 2021

Well, we've thrown off our mojo a bit from missing last week's episode, but things are getting back on track.  This week I put together a reaction video on my YouTube channel about the adorable young 9-year-old magician who made an appearance on America's Got Talent.  The Amazing Shoji.  To you loyal listeners this will sound a bit odd, as in the video I had to introduce myself under the assumption that 99% of those viewing it on the channel would have no idea who I am or why they should be watching, except for the small handful of subscribers that I already have on the channel.  So if you can put up with an awkward intro, you should survive the rest just fine.

Thanks to all who are loyal listeners of the show.  Soon I'm going to be dividing up the video and audio podcasts occasionally, bringing you some audio in more of a story form and keeping some of the video footage separate, since with some of it it will be necessary for people to actually "see" what is happening, and it won't translate to an audio podcast very well.

If you haven't done so already, please leave me a star-rating and review for the show on your favorite podcast player!

I do not claim any right to ownership of the America's Got Talent footage used in this video. This content is only used for the purpose of commentary and education about the subject matter it contains.

Arbitrary Rules, Terrible Waiters, and NEVER Use Social Media to Sign Into Third Party Apps

Arbitrary Rules, Terrible Waiters, and NEVER Use Social Media to Sign Into Third Party Apps

May 31, 2021
Don't you hate it when people create arbitrary rules, or at least enforce legitimate ones arbitrarily? When someone has it in their power to do good by you, help you out greatly, and for some arbitrary reason they just DON'T? Today Curtis talks about a recent encounter with an organization that did just that and how he got his way in the end.
 
Curtis also talks about why you should NEVER use your social media or other account credentials to log into third party apps and services.
