Amazing Kreskin Life

The Amazing Kreskin (born George Joseph Kresge; January 12, 1935), also known as Kreskin, is an American mentalist who became popular on television in the 1970s.

He was inspired to become a mentalist by Lee Falk's famous comic strip Mandrake the Magician, which features a crime-fighting stage magician.

He has always presented himself as an "entertainer," never as a psychic, who operates on the basis of suggestion, not the paranormal or supernatural.

Early life

Kreskin was born in Montclair, New Jersey to Polish and Italian parents.

Despite Kreskin's "predictions," he does not appear to have innate or clairvoyant powers and does not want to be regarded as a "psychic." One of his most popular tactics is to conduct his own audit for his latest results. If he does not find it, he does not get paid for the day. When he is led off stage and into seclusion by some of the audience, he commands the audience to conceal an envelope containing his paycheck. He then re-emerges and hunts through the crowd, with almost always being able to locate the correct location.

According to Kreskin, he has failed only ten or eleven times, including his appearance at Rockwell's in Pelham, where he required two attempts and a "rehide" of the check, along with two more attempts to locate the check/note. Kreskin's quest for the ticket in New York's Lion Theater on April 14, 2018, although the singers were unable to locate the check amid the sold out audience. The check was carried out within the general area. However, his attempts were futile, as perhaps eight to ten minutes later he threw up his hands and declared that he had failed at the trick for the 12th time in 30 years.

"This course, not jogging lost memories by lowering techniques or detecting lies by body language and voice inflections," Kreskin teaches classes for law enforcement agencies.

The 2008 film The Great Buck Howard is based on writer-director Sean McGinly's experience as Kreskin's road manager for a brief period.

Kreskin will be the voice of The Magic Tree in a new animated series titled "The Adventures of Little Billy: In Search of the Magic Tree," based on a book by Barry J. Farber.
