80 Years of The Amazing Kreskin

NEWS: Toronto Sun Kreskin comes to aid of hypnotic ex-principal blamed for death of three students Postmedia Network Thursday, October 22, 2015, 3:38 PM dynamic_resize The Amazing Kreskin aka George Kresge Jr. on stage at the Glenn Gould Studio. (WENN.COM) The Amazing Kreskin has come to the defence of a Florida principal who was fired after three students he hypnotized died shortly after. "This man has been railroaded," Kreskin said of Dr. George Kenney, the Sarasota County High School principal who was forced out in 2012. Earlier this month, the school board agreed to pay $600,000 to the three families whose children died -- two by suicide, one in a car crash -- after Kenney hypnotized them as treatment for stress and concentration problems. Kreskin, 80, says putting the blame on the principal's hypnotic sessions is a crime: hypnotism doesn't even exist. For decades, the famous mentalist has offered a $100,000 reward to anyone who can prove the existence of a hypnotic trance. "He caused no one's death through hypnosis because he never put anyone in a 'hypnotic trance.' He never did, it's just not possible," Kreskin said in a media release. He said if the case ever went to court, it would never stand up, and offered to testify on Kenney's behalf if he chooses to fight the accusations. "No one should go through life having others believe that they caused three suicides when they are truly innocent. That is a burden I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy," Kreskin says in the release.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: KRESKIN MAKES OPEN OFFER TO DISGRACED ‘HYPNOTIST’ PRINCIPAL NEW YORK: The Amazing Kreskin is making an open offer to Dr. George Kenney, the Sarasota County High School Principal who was fired for allegedly causing the suicides of three high school students after ‘hypnotizing’ them. This case has attracted national coverage over the past 2 weeks. As a result, Dr. Kenney has retired and moved to another state. Kreskin is adamant that Mr. Kenney’s ‘hypnotizing’ had absolutely nothing to do with these tragic deaths. For decades, Kreskin has offered $100,000 to any hypnotist who can prove conclusively the existence of a hypnotic trance. In fact, Kreskin won a legendary lawsuit in the 1980’s that proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is no such thing as a ‘hypnotic’ trance. Kreskin states, “There is already legal precedent, this man has been railroaded.” Kreskin is adamant that if Mr. Kenney had gone to trial, the case would have been thrown out of court. The Amazing One feels so strongly about this injustice, that he is offering to proudly testify on behalf of Mr. Kenney to not only get his reputation back, but to prove he was not at fault for these horrible ‘suicides’. Kreskin states, “This will be a monumental case and I will support Dr. Kenney in proving that he caused no one’s death through hypnosis because he never put anyone in a ‘hypnotic trance’. He never did, it’s just not possible, and I can prove it yet again! Can you believe that it has been strongly suggested that one of the suicides was a fatal car accident during which the driver hypnotized himself!!!” After a lawsuit filed by the families of the deceased teenagers, the Sarasota County school district agreed to pay each family $200,000 to settle the matter. Kreskin concludes that, “No one should go through life having others believe that they caused 3 suicides when they are truly innocent. That is a burden I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.” SEE ORIGINAL USA TODAY ARTICLE: Principal George Kenney fired for “Hypnosis suicides"

Amazing Kreskin says ‘hypnosis is BS,’

78308126            ...Bashes Florida principal trance scandal
  The Amazing Kreskin wants you to snap out of it. The famed mentalist on Friday bashed believers of hypnosis, saying a Florida school district got fleeced into paying the families of three students who died after allegedly being put in a trance by their principal. "Talk about a disgraceful abuse of scientific mumbo jumbo," Kreskin wrote in a rant about the recent $600,000 settlement the Sarasota County School District reached with grieving families this week. "There is the immense power of suggestion but hypnosis is B.S." The payout comes four years after former North Port High School Principal George Kenney hypnotized Wesley McKinley, 16, Marcus Freeman, 16, and Brittany Palumbo, 17. McKinley and Palumbo took their own lives, while Freeman died in a car accident. All three died shortly after Kenney's trances in 2011. However, their deaths were never linked to hypnosis. "If it's possible to cause suicide through hypnosis, should I seriously consider going on satellite television with the attempt to attract viewers who are members of ISIS and then bring about mass suicide of our enemy?" Kreskin said. "The question I suggest is who in the hell had the asinine, imbecilic, stupid, unscientific idea that this had to do with hypnosis?" he added. The legendary soothsayer, who has about 60 years of experience under his belt, reiterated his longstanding $100,000 offer to anyone who can scientifically prove that hypnotic trances exist. Kreskin was sued in New Jersey court in 1986 by a hypnotist who unsuccessfully sought to demonstrate hypnosis. "My $100,000 offer which has never been taken on since that 1986 trial, has never been taken on by either a stage hypnotist, a psychiatrist, a scientist, or ruthless lawyer, says something about my position," he said.

Kreskin’s Chiller Theatre Expo Disappearance

Posted by admin On October - 1 - 2015
It is with considerable regret that we alert you to the fact that the Amazing Kreskin will not be appearing at the Chiller Theatre Expo that is scheduled on October 23-25. There are scores of you folks who were made aware in the past three weeks that Kreskin was to appear and yes, was going to share his passion for gothic horror and along with the aura of mysteries that have surrounded so much of his career both on stage and in private incidents. This was going to be not based simply on fiction but a part of the dramatic experiences of Kreskin’s life that very few of you know about. Unfortunately, Kreskin’s appearance is not to be. The schedule that Kreskin’s office was alerted to was not the true schedule of events. It turns out, the days of the Chiller Theatre Expo fall on the very same days that Kreskin has been booked in Florida for many months and there is no way we can set aside the original bookings. So as Kreskin says, it looks like the only way he will be able to attend the Chiller Theatre Expo will be in spirit. He does foresee that you’re going to have a fascinating time attending.
