About Don Townsend

When Don was a little boy his grandfather was the one that got him started down this interesting road. While his grandfather was not an entertainer, he did have an uncanny understanding of people. His grandpa always said, "Whenever you talk with someone, don't just listen to what they say. Observe their actions, facial expressions, and even postures, because most of what people say is not through the spoken word." This is very true, actions really do speak louder than words.

Don had the unique opportunity to perform in a circus each summer to pay his way through college. After graduating he spent several years performing in comedy clubs. There was a night club in Chicago that featured a Psychic every Wednesday. The Psychic claimed she used Extra Sensory Perception (ESP) and paranormal powers to accomplish the demonstrations in her show and had developed quite a following. She now was moving away to another part of the country, and yet the club owner wanted to keep the same theme on Wednesdays. He had seen Don perform, and asked him if he would be willing to provide the Psychic entertainment each week. That launched the phenomenal combination of mind reading, audience participation, and humor. It is true that what Don does appears to be completely impossible; however it is all done with nonverbal observation, psychological influence and illusion. Don took over the Psychics entertainment spot under the condition he could make it clear that everything he did was through natural means. In other words it was entertainment Not ESP.

Since then Don has thrilled audiences with his unique abilities performing on over 500 luxury cruises and for corporate clients throughout the world. Your guests will enjoy the perfect combination of hilarious comedy and jaw dropping mind reading, but it is definitely Not ESP.
