“You see but you do not observe. The distinction is clear.” Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes) A Scandal in Bohemia
Look at your hands, your nails, and the heels of your shoes. What do you see? Nothing? Imagine someone who could look at those details and see everything. Everything. Only, you don’t have to imagine. Because this is precisely what Colin Cloud does.
He’ll know what you’ve had for lunch, where you’ve been that day, what you do for a living, the car you drive, even your PIN code. He’ll read you like a book. He’s already sure you’re quite the page-turner.
Colin Cloud is a forensic scientist who mixes mind magic and brain science with his love of Arthur Conan Doyle’s works, resulting in him being described as the closest thing around to the real life Sherlock Holmes. He left Jonathan Ross speechless, Ant and Dec agog with disbelief and mind reader and spoon-bender Uri Geller described him as “one of the greatest thought readers of all time”. He has performed for professional skeptics like Penn and Teller and wowed the hard-to-please Simon Cowell.
His peers predict he’s the next big thing in the world of Mentalism. The media have described him as the real-life Sherlock and witnesses don’t say much as they’re usually left speechless. He has left people convinced that he does indeed have mystical skills of reading minds and influencing outcomes.
In 2014, Colin Cloud became the runaway success of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with 23 sold out performances and multiple 5 star reviews. He also signed a development deal with NBC Universal, and production on a series is underway.
In his brand new show, Cloud will, quite literally, get away with murder. (Well, maybe not actual murder. That would be wrong. And illegal.) You’ll understand why he’s never lost a game of poker, learn how to discover the phone number of anyone you like, and recall information from the recesses of your mind. He will even share with you the ability to connect with people on a deeper and more meaningful level than you’ve ever experienced before.
He’ll leave you convinced he’s a psychic savant with the hypnotic powers of a calculated angel. Colin Cloud is potentially the most dangerous man in the world. Luckily, he’s on our side. We hope.
