What You Need To Know

Step into the extraordinary world of Banachek, a master mentalist whose unwavering skepticism adds a unique twist to the realm of magic and mind-bending performances.

The journey of Banachek’s illustrious career began at the age of 18 with Project Alpha, a “scientific” study that set the stage for his remarkable abilities. For four years, Banachek astounded researchers at the McDonnell Laboratory for Psychical Research, leaving an indelible mark on the world of mentalism.

Banachek’s pursuit of truth extends beyond his own feats, as he has dedicated himself to exposing fraudulent psychics, mediums, and spiritualists who exploit the emotions of others for personal gain. Notably, his unmasking of televangelist Peter Popoff on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1986 remains a testament to his commitment to revealing deception in the mystical realm.

Penn & Teller, the famed magical duo, have hailed Banachek as “a magical thinker of deep, deep subtlety,” and his live show at The STRAT lives up to this acclaim! Opening with an astonishing act that sets the tone, Banachek takes the audience on a nonstop journey of mind-bending wonders, proving why he holds the title of “the greatest mentalism act in the world”.

With over 50 major TV appearances, including CNN Live and TODAY, Banachek’s influence reaches global audiences. His collaboration with Criss Angel and frequent features in major publications showcase the widespread recognition of his extraordinary talents.

A regular on Joe Rogan’s podcast too, Banachek continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in the world of magic and mentalism, inviting audiences to join him on a mind-bending journey like no other.
