THE RETURN OF MY TELEVISION SERIES

Posted by admin On July - 12 - 2010

I am tremendously excited to notify you of the return of my television series…The Amazing World of Kreskin.

Thirty-two years ago, even yours truly could not foresee that we would be viewing in the year 2010 some 30 shows of the 5 ½ year series.

It is being made available on the website www.hulu.com after almost 9 months of negotiations. Believe it or not, each show has a sponsor.

Do you know in the first 2 seasons of the series, The Amazing World of Kreskin became the second highest rated program in all of Canada. Within months it went international and was seen all over the world.

What became a precedent in my series is that an edict was handed down by the head of the CTV network which originated the show. Namely, Kreskin’s program was not to be touched, that is the contents were not to be altered or tampered with. As incredible as it may sound, I was given free reign with the program! The head of the network was such a fan that he ordered all the officials who oversaw the program to stay away and not interfere with the show itself.

I wanted to share with you this extraordinary development.

You can access the serieson:

ESPecially,

Mentalist: I can make The Pittsburgh Pirates win

Posted by admin On July - 2 - 2010

The hapless Pittsburgh Pirates have sunk so low in the standings that The Amazing Kreskin is offering his services to bail them out — for an undisclosed fee.

The mentalist, best known for his spots on late-night TV shows and a good run of picking winners of Super Bowls, Academy Awards and elections, thinks the Buccos not only will make this their 18th consecutive losing season, but will continue to stay below .500 for another two years.

In relief, The Amazing Kreskin wants the ball, even if it’s crystal. The Pirates didn’t return messages to see if they would give it to him.

Kreskin on Joey Reynolds’ Last Two Shows

Posted by admin On March - 29 - 2010

Regarding Joey Reynolds leaving WOR

Joey Reynolds is one of the greatest living American radio talk show hosts. I have worked with all the great late-night radio hosts, Joe Franklin, Long John Nebel, Barry Farber, John Wingate. I am witness to the amazing variety of guests from all walks of life and the remarkable live music entertainment content, Reynolds always has brought to the show. What is almost as singularly remarkable is that in the hundreds of hours I spent with Joey on the air, I’ve rarely seen him using a telephone. The man has an encyclopedic mind for almost every area of modern culture and its people.

I predict he will be picked up by another broadcast station with an even better time slot!

David Letterman; thank you!

Special thanks to David Letterman for your on air wishes:

“The Late Show wishes a happy 75th birthday to The Amazing Kreskin. Kreskin, you should totally sue those jerks who ripped you off to create The Mentalist!”
