What Does Kennedy Do (and answers to other questions his mum tends to ask…)?

May 13th, 2012 by Kennedy

Sitting chawing on a nice curry in Akbar, Newcastle with my comedian friend Kate Lucas this weekend got me thinking about ‘what the heck do I do?’ and what is a mind reader, or a ‘mind reader guy’ or even a ‘psychological mind reader‘.

There’s so many names for what I do, I’ve grabbed the Trademark of ‘mind reader guy’ but it’s not quite as simple as that.

In my performances/presentations to companies and at private parties I’ll deceptively use a combination of skills to make you go “oh my gosh, this is bloody mental…how does he know that, do that and what the ****“.

My pool of skills that I fuel this entertaining madness from includes psychology, understanding people, statistics (knowing what folks are most likely to do), persuasion and influence skills, reading body language and facial expressions (often to see if I’m getting it right before you can realise I got it wrong), memory skills, improvisation (making stuff up), trickery, rapid calculations, theatrics, acting (lying), inducing amnesia (generally so you don’t remember what really happened) and bleach.

The clever bit is putting all of these things in to the mix so you don’t know which ones I’m using; and then picking elements of each one to cancel out the possibility of using the other. This generally leaves people with some kind of magical experience which you’ll feel as wonder, amazement and a certain state of arousal.

That’s what ‘a Kennedy does’. Now I’m off to make a cup of tea (or persuade someone else to remember to make me one whilst reading their micro expressions to see if they’re doing it right, calculating how quickly they’ll do it and slipping them a Viagra).

Kennedy was very professional, really entertaining and completely different to what we have booked in the past in terms of an after dinner speaker and entertainment. The performance amazed the whole audience and really lifted the spirits in the entire room in time for our formal proceedings.I would definitely recommend Kennedy to anyone looking for corporate entertainment.

What a fantastic night’s entertainment Mind of Kennedy provided. Some of the stuff he did is still being talked about at our company days after! Make sure you book him for your corporate event; you won’t be disappointed!

Absolutely spectacular show! Never seen anything like it. We were all mesmerised from beginning to end. I can highly recommend Kennedy’s show to anyone looking for entertainment for a party, wedding or corporate event. He really was outstanding and kept us all laughing & on the edge of our seats all night!

(Feedback about our ruby wedding party last night) – Kennedy was absolutely fantastic. Not only did he work the room really well, and include people from different parts of the room, which is so important, but also he was an absolute delight to work with before, during and after the event... no trouble at all and completely accommodating. The act was tremendous and I love the idea that all our guests are sitting at home today over the Sunday papers, saying "how did he do that?!" I would have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy to anyone I know. Best wishes and thanks again to Kennedy for entertaining all our guests so well at our party. Jane & Pete Bradshaw
