I’ve always been interested in the Unexplained! Ever since my early teens both kinds of magic have fascinated me: the symbolic magic we illusionists perform, and the metaphysical magic of those who claim PSI powers etc. Uri Geller’s inspiration has been immense throughout this span of years, but back at the beginning of my journey I never thought I’d one day have the privilege of meeting him – let alone performing my own ‘magic’ in his own home on a radio show! The man is a major influence and true mentor. He is a man of mystery who has maintained the power of his persona throughout his career, even after some harsh criticsim from those within my own ‘stage magic’ world. His performances continue to lead people into the long lost world of enchantment and wonder – and I say we need MORE of that not less. And, let me say this, as one who does performs mentalism and mind magic (and therefore knows the secrets) I was shocked, amazed and delighted by the genuine mysteries I encountererd in his presence.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
