Kreskin is quick to sing the praises of several late-night greats, including  Carson,Jack Paar, Joey Bishop and David Letterman, though he  says comparing Fallon to those guys is trickier that it may seem.


“There will be others standing in the wings, but Fallon, like Carson, will  figure out how to bring [rivals] into the fold and not see them as enemies,” he  predicts.

“We all know the terrain is different now, because we have an overcrowded  late night,” said Kreskin.

■  Gosford chief James Heddo had a very big day yesterday.

He was up early to  raise the Australian flag at his track  then open the gates for the huge Anzac Day meeting.

Later he was seen bopping away at the silent disco, which was a novelty part of the race day.

There was a room near the saddling enclosure where 200 sets of headphones were installed. The music was played by two DJs and only those wearing the headphones could hear the tunes.

‘‘It was sick, man,’’ Stable Talk’s spy said tongue-in-cheek was the way the chief described his time in the silent disco.


It turned out a perfect day for Heddo when a horse he part-owns, Kreskin, won over 1100m at Gosford.

We Will… “See You At The Movies”

One of the joys in the life is in reminiscing of the conversations that I had with Roger Ebert. I met him at a convention and was impressed with the man.

We were reflecting upon a few decades ago when movie reviewers looked down upon horror movies. They did not feel they were the highest level of movie making. But Roger Ebert waxed with much enthusiasm on the great gothic movies. Beyond that I revered the handwritten postcards I would receive from Ebert while he was traveling on vacation or saw something that he thought I would be interested in his commentary about. I don’t believe I ever saw in my lifetime a more riveting, enchanting and romantic commentary on movies than Ebert’s television shows with Gene Siskel and then others to follow.

Talk about a figure we will all seriously miss. I can perceive at the Pearly Gates he was given “two thumbs up”

Kreskin To Solve The Washington Stalemate?

Cerabino: Getting Kreskin to solve the Washington stalemate? Now that would be amazing

 Sunday, March 17, 2013  

I think it’s time we bring in The Amazing Kreskin.

I’m talking about finding a solution to the political stalemate in Washington. The mutually despised “sequestration” cuts were supposed to lead to compromise between the two political parties. But that hasn’t worked.

So maybe this calls for something more drastic: like giving a 78-year-old thought reader from New Jersey a crack at saving the country.

“I would need to gather four or five of the party leaders on both sides and put them in a room for hours with no phones, no Internet, no contact with the outside world,” Kreskin told me.

Kreskin, the mentalist whose fame grew during dozens of appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, said he’d be more than happy to save the country. If only somebody would ask.

“I need to set a psychological mind-set,” he said, further explaining his idea of locking himself in a quiet room for hours with Congressional leaders. “I won’t put them in a hypnotic trance.”

But it would be a state that more resembles love, he said.

“When people are in love, they are able to adapt,” he said. “That’s the problem now. Nobody wants to adapt. The way things are now, most of them should be on the Titanic, because they’ve been such titanic failures.”

Kreskin says he’s politically independent. His involvement wouldn’t have any ideological baggage.

“I think I could get them to start thinking in harmony with each other,” he said. “They’re not willing to put themselves in the shoes of other people.”

This month, President Barack Obama quipped that he wasn’t able to do a “Jedi mind meld” with the GOP congressional leadership to break the political stalemate. Most of the commentary over that remark centered on Obama’s science-fiction blunder of combining the Jedi mind trick from Star Wars with the Vulcan mind meld from Star Trek.

But for Kreskin, this was more than a botched joke. He offered his services to Obama.

“All right Mr. President let’s take a giant step beyond science fiction,” Kreskin wrote on his website. “I know what I’m talking about because on television, I have both read and influenced the thoughts of Star Trek’s Bill Shatner.”

The Jedi mind trick, Kreskin said, is not a trick at all, “but done legitimately by yours truly.”

Obama hasn’t called yet, Kreskin told me.

I was talking to Kreskin because he will be appearing in Palm Beach Gardens on Friday night, where he will do a show at the Eissey Campus Theatre at Palm Beach State College, a show that involves him reading the thoughts of the audience.

And he will be doing one of his favorite bits during the show to prove that he’s willing to gamble on his abilities.

“I will gather six or so people from the audience who do not know each other, and I will hand them my check,” he said.

The check is his fee for that night. While two of those audience members escort him out of the building and keep an eye on him, the other four pick a spot inside the auditorium to to hide the check.

Then Kreskin is brought back inside. If he can’t find the check, he forfeits the fee.

“You’ve got admit — that’s a hell of a way to make a living,” he said.

Kreskin estimates that he has done that bit about 6,000 times, and by his counting, he has only failed to find the check nine times.

A guy with this kind of magical power might be just what’s needed to solve the gridlock in Washington.

And maybe for an extra incentive, after he corrals the congressional leaders in that room, he can hide all of their checks.

That may be the most magical move of all.

    “Highly Recommended”

Yours Truly has read over 1000 biographies through the years. I have been intrigued and fascinated with the thinking, trials, and tribulations that have resulted in the success of great figures. I highly recommend a new book titles “Roger Ailes Off Camera” by Zev Chafets. Of course in the western world  a person would be remiss in communications if they did not realize that Roger Ailes is probably the most powerful figure in television broadcasting today.  What a revelation it is to see a picture of a man who has made deep inroads competing with other networks including  NBC, ABC and  CBS resulting in success in the cable television field unparalleled. This will be inspiration to anyone  who aspires to  giant accomplishments in life.  To see the voyage of a man whose career began with the The Mike Douglas Show to working with Presidents Richard Nixon, Reagan and Bush and then the creation of FOX television is mind boggling.
