Coming to you direct from Las Vegas, Paul Draper has appeared with David Copperfield, Lance Burton, and Teller as an expert on the History Channel. He has performed for HBO Comedy Fest at Caesar’s Palace, on Criss Angel’s Mindfreak on A&E, the Magic Castle in Hollywood and on documentaries accompanying Steven Spielberg’s Poltergeist.
In addition to his corporate shows and lectures, Paul Draper is frequently called upon as an expert in fields ranging from magical history to human consciousness. As an anthropologist and member of the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness, Paul Draper pursues studies with Native American Ghost Dancers, South American cannibals, and Spiritualists.
Mysteries of the Mind is an interactive entertainment where audience members become the stars of the show!
Perfect for seminars, luncheons, universities and theaters. In Paul Draper’s one-man lecture / performance “Mysteries of the Mind” he tells people things they’re thinking about. He reads their minds! Paul Draper asks audience members to think of a fairy tale or song, and then immediately tells them which one they’re thinking of. He has the audience work in teams, and shows them how they can read each other’s minds. He ends by psychically finding and describing objects, people and places while completely blindfolded in layers of duct tape.
Sounds incredible? Phenomenal? Unbelievable? Just wait until you experience it live!
“Paul entertained and educated us. He has a broad knowledge of mentalism and psychic entertainment. … Paul has a dynamic personality and training in drama, musical comedy and broadcasting. This all adds to the enjoyment of attending his lecture. Any magic group interested in mentalism and psychic entertainment would do well to consider Paul Draper.”
-David Goodsell Editor of M.U.M. (Magic unity and Might)
The IBM Linking Ring said in an article about me “Many of our members were heard to say this was the best lecture all year!“
Wolfgang Puck on his way to sign his book at his restaurant. When he saw me he watched some of my magic and I said “You’re Wolfgang Puck, you do magic!” and he said “Cooking is like magic, but you do the real magic. Do you have any magic recipes in your bag for me?”
