Regarding the question….

Posted by admin On January - 7 - 2008
that has been posed to Kreskin by a number of interviewers the past several days, namely, “Kreskin are you attending the Olympics in Beijing, China?” “It seems that this rumor has crept up from many areas and from many sources in the past few days. This coupled with a number of emails I have received from people in China who has posed the same question. About all I can say at this time is simply that - it is being considered.” The Amazing Kreskin
NEW YORK (December 3, 2007) – The Amazing Kreskin, the world’s foremost (original) mentalist, considered by many to be the Godfather of the modern mentalist movement, is making his boldest prediction to date. Almost one year in advance of the general election for the President, The Amazing Kreskin has recorded down his prediction of the winner in next November and will present it at The World Bar on Thursday, December 6, 2007 at a 12:30pm press conference. Although he will not reveal his prediction yet, Kreskin will present a lockbox containing the prediction at The World Bar where it will remain on display until the day after next year’s election, when it will be revealed to the world once and for all. This prediction represents the biggest, most long range challenge in The Amazing Kreskin’s Fifty Year career. “I am staking my reputation on this prediction,” remarked Kreskin, “and I’m completely confident that I’ve picked the winner. There is no doubt in my mind!” The World Bar will display Kreskin’s prediction-lockbox on the shelf behind the bar for the public to clearly view and to ensure there is no tampering.

The Top “TV Icons” – Guess Who They Are?

Posted by admin On November - 15 - 2007
On Friday, November 16th, TVLAND Television Network will be airing a two hour special; also featured in Entertainment Weekly Magazine, Counting the 50 Greatest TV Icons. Johnny Carson is rated as number one. Once again, I am perplexed of something I could easily predict and that is that a forgotten giant in television history was left out. Does it mean that younger writers have no sense of history and cannot remember anybody who existed before their time on earth? That is about the only excuse I can give the omission of Arthur Godfrey. At one time he was called “Mr. CBS.” In the 1950’s he was the biggest performing asset of CBS radio and television and accounted for twelve percent of the network’s annual revenue. Time Magazine called him “The Greatest Salesman Who Ever Stood Before a Microphone.” Not to see him listed amongst the top five TV people in television history is sad but also suggests the quality of the survey. I have only one fact to mention and then leave to you who is reading this, the judgment. In 1953, on one of the three shows that Arthur Godfrey had on radio and television, he walked out before a television camera and received one of, if not the biggest share audience in television history. 91.4% of all those watching television that evening were tuned in to see him! I think this Friday evening, I’ll be spending my time reading one or two books.

Appearances on Howard Stern’s Show

My two appearances on Howard Stern's show in recent weeks has generated considerable activity. A special attention in references have been made to the show, in which I have discussed my Blackjack playing and my winning twenty six consecutive hands at Resorts in Atlantic City. Understandably with all the interest in Poker, I am being asked why I am not allowed to play Poker in any gaming casino.

Kreskin and OJ

The Amazing Kreskin wants O.J.'s thoughts: Reactions to the O.J. news took many forms on Wednesday, and mentalist/mind-reader the Amazing Kreskin dealt with it the only way he knows how: offering to use his mind powers for the greater good. "If he is so damn innocent, I'm going to challenge him to allow me to read his thoughts," he told Salon on Wednesday. Kreskin explained that he and Simpson have a history, sort of: "When the trial took place a few years ago, I offered then to take a walk with him around the crime scene and then express publicly the impressions I got from his thoughts." (Jay Leno mocked the idea in a "Tonight Show" monologue at the time, saying, "You mean that Kreskin was the only one who didn't know whether he was guilty or not?") Now Kreskin, who contends he has done criminal investigative work before ("I've been called on 84 crime cases"), says he would still want to take a walk with Simpson and "listen to the thoughts I perceived."

On the evening of October 25, 2006 on the red carpet of Donald Trump’s debut of…TRUMP, his new vodka presented in a gold opaque bottle; Kreskin showed his take on the event. He held in his left hand a few hundred dollars worth of gaming chips he had won playing blackjack in one of Donald’s casino’s. In the other hand, he poured out gold opaque poker chips. His comment… “Out with the old, in with the GOLD”
