Attraction details
Type: Performances
Owner description: 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.

Bill came and performed at our Christmas party and once again did a great job! Even though I saw the show 2 times before, I was still amazed and I heard a lot of positive comments afterwards from those who saw him for the first time.

My husband, two sons and I really enjoyed this show. I liked how he involved someone from every party in the audience. We are still asking ourselves "how'd he do that?!!" Highly recommend.

My audiences tend to be smarter than your average bear, and I like to make you think. It is a good thing to leave my show asking "How'd he do that?" I am very happy that you and your family enjoyed my show. Thank you for coming to my show as well as for the review. Reading Your Thoughts, Bill... More

There are so many things to do in the Gatlinburg/Smoky Mountains area, and over 15 years of near-annual visits at Thanksgiving, my family has seen, done, hiked, and experienced most of it. These days, we pretty much just drive through Gatlinburg on the way to the park, and are happy to avoid the typical tourist stuff. This year, on our... More

Second time seeing the show while visiting Gatlinburg. Bill is funny, interesting, and very entertaining. My teenage daughters and mother also really enjoyed going.

This is not a showy, extravaganza. You can go other places for that. But if you want the best deal for your money, this show is it. And if you are looking for a magician who pulls assistants out of boxes and makes animals appear and disappear, you can find those magicians other places as well. But if you want... More

Bill's show was fantastic! He did some amazing mentalism. I was blown away by his ability to guess the unusual name of my girlfriend's dog! Don't miss this show. It is well worth your time and money, and it is suitable for the whole family. Bill does a great job involving the entire audience, and is an excellent entertainer.

My husband and I were there with 4 girls ages 10-14. We were blown away! Everyone enjoyed it. The theater is small enough that everyone felt very involved in the show.

While we enjoyed most of the show, overall, it wasn't what we expected. He did some things that were definitely difficult (or near impossible) to figure out, however, there were a few things that were easily understood. The "tricks" seem to be drawn out to make the show more lengthy as he used many people from the audience. We paid... More
