Description: Although Bill's performance is sometimes viewed as true psychic ability...
Although Bill's performance is sometimes viewed as true psychic ability, Bill is really using his knowledge of human behavior combined with psychology, suggestion, NLP™, hypnosis, directed awareness, and showmanship to influence people's thoughts and actions. By reading unconscious signs of what a person is thinking, Bill is able to manipulate their decision-making process. In short, Bill uses all five senses to create the illusion of a sixth. A simple example, Bill may ask someone to concentrate on their first kiss. He then proceeds to describe the person thought of as well as the name of that person. Bill will stand in front of you and seemingly pull thoughts directly from your mind, predict what you'll say before it comes out of your mouth, and read you like an open book. Bill consistently stuns audiences across the nation with his live stage shows by providing entertainment that will exceed your expectations.

The venue was small and intimate but the show was a huge serving of awesomeness. I am a skeptic when it comes to mind reading and such but now...not so much. I got called on for him to guess my favorite pet. There was NO WAY he could know what he did. I'm hooked. Add to that the other parts... More

I'm pretty picky when it comes to...well, just about everything. I was worried this was going to be a very low energy show. Boy was I wrong. This was a great show. I gotta say that the most entertaining part of the show was watching the audience members around me. It was definitely shock and awe in a great way.... More

I know what a lot of you are thinking. This may just be another Gatlinburg tourist trap an gimmicky show. Well you're wrong. I am a total skeptic when it comes to this type of stuff and I was thoroughly entertained. Mr. Gladwell is a true performer and I will make it a point to see his show every time... More

We had a blast at the mentalist show! I appreciated Bill's honesty in that he doesn't actually believe in psychics or reading people's minds, but rather in the expertise of reading ones body language and senses. The tricks he did were fascinating and left us wishing the show was much longer:-)

Bill was amazing! My husband and I had seen him perform in Gatlinburg and were very impressed. We hired Bill to perform at our corporate dealer show where we had clients, vendors, company workers and the CEO of our company. His mentalism show was captivating and guests continued to comment on it and wonder "how he did it" well into... More

My Husband and I went in December 2014. I had never been to a "Mentalist" show, so we were not sure what to expect. Wow were we amazed. I did not see the end coming!!!! Bill Gladwell is quite the performer. He was very entertaining and approachable. We definitely go to his show again!!!
