Know the difference between a magician, an illusionist, and a mentalist? We don't either, but hopefully we'll get a better idea of when we see world renowned mentalist Guy Bavli at the Trump International Beach Resort at 8:30 p.m. tonight.
The Israeli-born entertainer has performed all over the world including at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas or Carnegie Hall in New York. He's also been on NBC's Phenomenon where he freaked out Raven Symone, made Don Francisco blush on Sabado Gigante, and used Girls Next Door's Holly Madison in a bit where he narrowly escaped swallowing some hydrochloric acid. Yeah, the guy's all about doing freaky things, and in Miami, more than most places, we dig that.
Among his past "tricks," Bavli has apparently stopped his heart from
beating. He correctly predicted Israeli election results on television
two weeks before they were announced. He bends spoons and sign posts
with his mind. That's all fine and well, but can he part rush hour
traffic on I-95? Stop the ticker of that bearded madman 90 miles south
of Key West? Predict how many storms Miami will see this hurricane
season? We're just saying. He might be one of the foremost mentalists
(and no, that's not an insult) on the planet, but if he's looking to
impress a Miami crowd he might want to tweak his act.
The Miami audience should feel close to the action during Bavli's Trump
shows as he says the venue is among the most intimate he's ever
performed in. "I usually perform in large theaters and casinos (filled
600 to 2,800 people). This time, it is very intimate, so everyone can
participate and feel a part of the show," Bavli says, adding that the
shows "will be very funny and interactive."
Those who witness he act might leave with more than they bargained for
as Bavli says that depart in a better mental state than when they
arrived. "I will show people that the mind is more capable than they
ever imagined... and at the end of the show people will feel happier,
positive and probably will be able to accomplish some Mind powers themselves."
