31 May Mentalism Show at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum
One of the coolest things about performing my show is the unique venues that I get to do it at. This spring I was invited to perform my mentalism comedy show for a corporate event. The event was a re-branding for an Ottawa based company and it was held at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum.
I flew into Ottawa in the afternoon and headed directly to the museum. Only when I got there did I realize that I’ve actually never seen these kinds of aeroplanes before, it was actually quite surreal to stand right in front of some of these planes. Old WWII bombers, early aeroplanes, rescue helicopters and much more. Take a look at the video and photos from Instagram below.

Performing a #Mentalism Show in Ottawa at the Canadian Aviation Museum (@avspacemuseum) for a corporate re-branding event tonight. The stage is surrounded by real aircrafts from the last 100+ years. Many of them are pretty surreal! (Swipe to see some photos and videos) If you’ve never been here before I highly suggest checking out this museum next time you’re in Ottawa! ??✈? Thanks to @outofthisworldhomeservices for inviting me to your brand launch! . . . . #mentalist #corporateentertainer #rebranding #magicshow #eventplanner #eventproducer #eventprofs #corporateentertainment #mindreader #magician #toronto #ottawa #aviation #airplanes #helicopters #museum
I performed a very interactive show with lots of comedy in front of about 150 people and got some great reactions. Interestingly I actually managed to mess up the opening effect but managed to use comedy to pivot into a different routine that was successful, I don’t think anyone noticed, but this is definitely something that bothered me and something I will have to work on a little more. The theme of the event was “Out of This World” so mind reading, magic, and psychological entertainment was a perfect fit for the occasion and I even prepared some custom material for the corporate event. After the show, I actually got a chance to chat with some of the guests and experience the museum for myself.
