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.

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!

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.
