Q: What is a Mentalist?
A: People have always asked Adrian this question and for years he has been trying to figure out the best way to answer it. A Mentalist is someone who blurs the line between illusion and intuition. It’s kind of like being a Jedi Master.
A Mentalist can figure out what you are thinking (read your mind.), persuade and influence you, put thoughts into your head and make you do other things that you normally wouldn’t do. It’s similar to the skills that people in the media (politicians & corporations) use to either make you vote for them or buy their products/services, but much more complex and ENTERTAINING!
Q: Is Adrian Psychic? Does he believe in the Occult or Supernatural?
A: The term “psychic” has been a bit overused & abused in today’s media. It conjures up everything from carnival fortune tellers to the infamous “Psychic Hot Line.” Adrian believes it’s fair to say that everyone has the potential to exercise some level of extrasensory or non-physical power. With that said, there is nothing neither supernatural nor occult about what Adrian does.
Yes, there have been moments in his life that strange things have happened to him but he wouldn’t label them as being neither supernatural nor occult. Much like a sense that can be sharpened to compensate for the loss of another, or the way human memory can be expanded and sharpened, one’s potential is always unknown until it is revealed and explored. But if you define “psychic” as someone who talks to the dead, then Adrian definitely isn’t psychic.
He has a hard time as it is trying to talk to the living. (Especially the opposite sex!)
Q: What is Twin Sensory Perception™? Is it like ESP?
A: Twin Sensory Perception™ is something that Adrian and his twin brother John believe all twins are born with. It is a special twin connection; Adrian and John have just developed it further over the years by studying people, twins, and the human mind. They really don’t know what one would define ESP as. But TSP isn’t anything neither supernatural nor mystical. TSP allows them to be able to get inside people’s heads and talk to each other mentally without words because they have been each other since birth. Talk to any other set of twins and they will tell you they have had similar experiences.
Q: What’s the difference between Adrian’s solo show and his Saint Twins show with his twin brother?
A: During his solo show, Adrian’s demonstrations are different than his Saint Twins TSP: Twin Sensory Perception™ show with his twin brother John. During his Saint Twins performance with John, the demonstrations they present are a little bit more complex and more baffling. For example, when Adrian performs solo, a demonstration that he does could involve 3 people, a similar demonstration with John during their Saint Twins show could involve up to 10 people. Price is also a difference.
Q: Is it even possible to “read minds?”
A: The truth is that everybody can read minds to an extent. We do it every day but we don’t really realize it. It has been said that 93% of communication is non-verbal. (7% verbal, 38% vocal, 55% body language). You can learn a lot about what people are thinking about by observing their body language, facial expressions or looking at their bookshelves & pictures on their walls than by asking them directly. Adrian has studied the areas of psychology, twins, communications, linguistics, magic, hypnosis and other areas to create the skills he demonstrates on stage.
Q: Can an individual prevent Adrian from reading specific thoughts?
A: The human mind is an amazing thing. Just as there are widely varied levels of intellectual capability, people vary greatly in the degree to which they open themselves up verbally or non-verbally, consciously or unconsciously. We always hear about how certain people are more susceptible to the power of suggestion. Others are reluctant to open themselves up to the concept of the untapped powers of the human mind. The truth is, without someone who is willing to meet Adrian halfway on stage, the mind retains its secrets like a lock box. The spectators whom help Adrian out during his show are always treated with dignity and respect and never made to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed.
Q: What are Adrian’s performance fees?
A: There is normally a correlation between a performer’s fee and the quality of their program.
You would never think that a $3,000 car might be similar to a $300,000 car. Just the same, you wouldn’t think that a $100 entertainer might be similar to a $1,000 entertainer. You normally get what you pay for. And consider this: What you pay for an entertainer is normally a small fraction of what you pay for the meal at a banquet or event, and the entertainment is probably far MORE important than the meal. You often pay 10 times more for the meal than for the entertainer (on a per capita basis), when in fact the evening’s program is probably 10 times more important than the meal. Consider the true value-per-person-attending when deciding on your entertainment investment. With this said, there are also other factors that determine our price including location of the show, travel, expenses and more. Adrian offers different entertainment packages for different events. If you are interested in his services, please contact him and he will be happy to discuss the different entertainment packages that he offers.
Q: Is Adrian ever wrong?
A: If Adrian happen to miss, don’t worry, it will still be entertaining. He works with people and hence, all of us are unique and as a result every show will be different. His show is all about his audience; his only goal is to please and entertain them.
Q: Can Adrian teach others what he does?
A: Adrian believes to an extent he could teach people some of the skills that he does. If you take 100 people and give them music lessons for ten years, they should become fairly competent musicians. But one or two might stand out from the rest of the group. So compared to that example, some of the skills he demonstrates can be learned with a lot of hard work ( just like anything else in life). However, some of the things he does he can’t fully explain himself how he does it.
Q: What is the difference between a magician and what Adrian does?
A: The difference between a magician and what Adrian does is when you see a magician put a girl in a box and then cut her in half, you know at the end no matter how dangerous or amazing it looked, the girl is fine. When you see Adrian’s show, he works with people. Since he really doesn’t use props like magicians, things at times have and can go quite differently than what he originally planned for. But, it is always in good fun.
Q: I was selected to find entertainment for our annual event and was told I needed someone clean. The person in charge last year hired someone that turned out to be R rated and whom offended our guests and ruined the whole event. Does Adrian perform a clean show?
A: Yes, his show is 100% clean! He knows for a fact that you don’t have to swear in your show in order to make people laugh. He also knows it’s your name on the line when you book the entertainment or speaker for your event. His main goal is to have everyone in the audience thanking YOU for hiring HIM and make YOU look like the star of the event.
Q: How far in advance do we need to book Adrian?
A: Some prime dates are booked up to 2 years in advance. It never hurts to inquire about a date no matter how soon or far away the event date may be. You are under no obligation by requesting more information about his shows. Events that are more than a month away require a 50% deposit and a contract to hold the date.
Q: Does Adrian require a minimum number of people in order to even put on a presentation?
A: He has entertained groups from as few as 10 people to audiences of over 1,500. He offers show packages that will fit into most situations.
Q: The last entertainer we hired had a rider on his contract a mile long with incredible demands on it. Does Adrian have a lot of special requirements in order to do his show?
A: No, in fact his clients always comment on how easy and professional he is to work with. His contract seems long, but it is really simple. The most important thing is sound. If people can’t hear him, that will be a problem. Feel free to contact him for more information on his rider requirements.
Q: Does Adrian involve audience members in his show?
A: Yes, absolutely! HIS ENTIRE SHOW IS THE AUDIENCE! The show is very much interactive!! During his 30-75 minute show, MANY RANDOM audience members become involved in the show. There is no fun in reading his own mind. His presentations not only take place on stage, but throughout the entire audience as well. Everyone will feel like they were a part of his show and treated with total respect on and off stage.
Q: Is Adrian personable? Will he be able to meet with our guests after his show to further talk with them?
A: Yes, he always loves to do so if unless there is a schedule conflict of course that would require him to leave right away. He would be more than happy to include a meet and greet with your audience members at no additional charge. In fact, what he enjoys most about his job is meeting and talking to his audience after the show.
Q: What does Adrian wish to accomplish?
A: His goal is to leave an audience feeling totally entertained and mystified. He guarantees his show to be fun, clean, and astonishing. He wishes to give his audiences that sense of joy and wonder that we all had as children (and that we still all have, believe it or not!) Furthermore, to paraphrase what once the late great comedian Andy Kaufman said, he wants to make people think “What’s real? What’s not? That’s what I do in my act, test how other people deal with reality.” And last, but not least he also wants people to realize that the human mind is the most powerful force in the universe and that we can accomplish, literally, whatever we put our minds to.
