I have been a huge fan of The Amazing Kreskin, since I first watched him as a young child with my Mother.

The fact that I have had the opportunity to meet him and we’ve become friends is a real life “pinch me” moment.

I spoke with Kreskin today about his upcoming Saturday, May 27, 2023 (5:00 p.m.) performance at Resorts Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

My wife Margie and I have purchased front row tickets for the special Memorial Day Weekend performance by The Amazing Kreskin.

Incredibly, The Amazing Kreskin has been performing continuously for more than 70 years.

Kreskin was born 88 years ago, on January 12, 1935, in Montclair, New Jersey.

Kreskin has earned a reputation for being the world's most iconic and respected mentalist.

Kreskin is the author of 21 books and has hosted his own network television show, along with creating his own board game.

Kreskin has appeared numerous times on Johnny Carson, Regis Philbin, David Letterman, and most recently Jimmy Fallon, Neil Cavuto, Howard Stern, and many other national and international television programs.

More than 50 years ago, my twin brother Don, sister Karen and I saw The Amazing Kreskin at The Steel Pier.

As Kreskin has done many times over the past 70 years, he allowed the establishment to hide his paycheck. If he finds it within the allotted time limit, he keeps his check. If he doesn’t find it, he forfeits his paycheck.

Kreskin’s track record of finding his paycheck is not perfect, but, it does qualify as amazing!

Don and I, along with Jim Fraser attended a Kreskin performance at The Levoy Theater several years ago … the photo below is from this special evening.

It was a wonderful evening, whereby Kreskin’s paycheck was hidden and then he went about trying to find it.

Kreskin invited Don and I to participate during his show on this evening.

I had certain duties inside the theater, while Don escorted Kreskin outside of the theater while we hid his paycheck.

Kreskin’s paycheck was hidden inside of a box of candy, which was then hidden inside of a bowl of popcorn in the theater.

The Amazing Kreskin found his paycheck.

Kreskin's show includes:

  • Mind-bending demonstrations
  • Thought reading
  • Playing card tests

  • Various special features TBA
