Rory Raven Will Read Your Mind! For over a dozen years, I have entertained and astonished audiences at colleges, companies, clubs, and private events. My knowledge of the inner workings of the mind allows me to perform amazing shows exploring the powers of the mind, both real and imagined.

Biography

When I was a child, sick in bed, my sister read me Edgar Allan Poe by flashlight. It's no wonder I ended up being a bit ... different.

A lifelong interest in the Strange led me to create a show based on theater, psychology, showmanship, and parapsychology.

Neither a psychic nor a magician, I will read your mind, I will bend your spoon, describe your prized posessions while blindfolded, and leave you talking about it for the rest of your life.

A clip of me in action may be found on youtube:

Get in touch with me and we'll talk about bending your audience's minds!

"Highly entertaining, funny, and clever. I kept asking myself how he did it. Penn and Teller, Kreskin, and Uri Geller all rolled into one. Just don't have soup with him -- it's tough to enjoy chicken and rice with a bent spoon."

It was great meeting you and I look forward to working with you on future events."
