Biography

For more than two decades Eric Mead has been bringing his unique vision f mystery entertainment to audiences all over the world. With spontaneous wit and a natural sense of humor, he guides you to a realm where reality and illusion collide, and the impossible is made real.

Each performance Mr. Mead gives is unique, reflecting his unique point of view, and eclectic background. He blends refined sleight of hand with sophisticated psychological techniques to deliver an unforgettable experience of wonder and astonishment. "Certainly there are ideas and laughs in the show, but really I am trying to transmit a very specific feeling to the people in the audience. To experience a deep sense of wonder for a moment that's a very special thing."

This gift of mystery and humor keeps Eric Mead very busy. He presents over 200 shows each year, ranging from corporate events, to private parties, to theatrical, and television appearances. He has enthralled audiences all across America and Western Europe. From the private living rooms of Jack Nicholson, Kevin Costner, and Hugh Hefner, to the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies like Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, Philip Morris, and Bristol-Meyers Squibb, he is at home in almost any venue, in front of any audience.

In addition to his performing schedule, Mr. Mead is an accomplished writer and creator of custom presentations. He has written or contributed to 18 industrial and instructional films. When the Denver Museum of Nature and Science wanted to do a live action exhibit called, Life on Mars, they turned to Eric Mead to create and develop the special effects required.

Mr. Mead's contributions have recently appeared in Penn and Teller's book, How to Play in Traffic, and on television with AXN's Magic Asia airing in 2008. He co-authored The Art of Astonishment, a three volume set of books teaching advanced conjuring technique. They have become international bestsellers in the field, and portions have been translated into seven languages. In 2006 Hermetic Press published his latest book, Tangled Web. It received nearly unanimous critical acclaim and is now in its second printing.

In a departure from his usual performance work, you can see Eric Mead in the controversial documentary film The Aristocrats with Robin Williams, George Carlin, Drew Carey, Whoopie Goldberg, Carrie Fisher, Jon Stewart, and The Smothers Brothers.
