More details

Have you ever wanted to read someone's mind or implant a subliminal suggestion? Doug Segal can teach you that and more in his hit show How To Read Minds And Influence People, all while making you laugh in the process.

Following two critically acclaimed UK tours and sell out runs at both Brighton Fringe & Edinburgh mind reader and comedian Doug Segal (BBC1, BBC 3, MTV & others) returns with his ground breaking, sell out 2012 Edinburgh show.

This show won Best Cabaret at Brighton Festival 2012 & a ThreeWeeks Editors Award at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012.

There is absolutely nothing spooky or supernatural in what Doug is doing. Everything is achieved using one or more of the following skills from Doug's background in psychology & advertising: persuasion techniques, statistics, reading body language, subliminal influence and two key advertising skills: "Cheating & Lying", all done with laughs, rakish charm and a rock & roll attitude.

Doug will teach the audience the techniques he uses to detect lies, implant suggestions, read minds and even "predict the lottery". This unique show promises to turn the audience into mind readers by pulling back the curtains so they can see the workings. everyone who sees this show will leave with an amazing mind trick they can do with their friends.

It's hard science ... abused in the name of tawdry entertainment.
