The Mentalist Moves to Legendary Stardust Resort & Casino

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 1, 2006 -- Award-winning mentalist, Gerry McCambridge, has found a home on the Las Vegas Strip at The Legendary Stardust Resort & Casino with performances beginning June 2.

In July 2005, McCambridge arrived in Las Vegas from New York and signed a three-week contract with a local casino. Due to popular demand and high ticket sales, McCambridge performed nightly for the past 47 weeks before deciding to end his run and take his act to the Las Vegas Strip.

The Mentalist's show is a mixture of comedy, mind reading, intuition and strange predictions. The show is full of audience participation -- one routine includes McCambridge reading the mind of someone in another state randomly called by an audience member, on the caller's very own cellular phone. Throughout the show, audience members select each other as volunteers in order to demonstrate there is no conspiracy occurring. McCambridge has a standing offer of $500,000 payable to anyone who can prove he uses stooges, audience plants, confederates, or collects any secret information prior to the show to accomplish his amazing feats of impossible-to-believe skills of mentalism.

McCambridge has appeared on many national television shows including "The Today Show," "Special Report on CNBC," "Late Night with David Letterman," "The Best Damn Sports Show... Period," "Soap Talk," and "The Vegas Show." He starred in a critically acclaimed off-Broadway show in New York City, as well as starred in and executive produced NBC's "The Mentalist," which currently airs worldwide. In 2005, the International Psychic Entertainers Association unanimously voted him as the World's Top Entertainer in the area of comedy and mentalism.

For years, McCambridge was known as "The Mentalist to the Stars," performing at ultra private A-list Hollywood celebrity parties. Those who have witnessed McCambridge read minds include: Muhammad Ali, Carol Alt, Courteney Cox, Howard Stern, Catherine Hickland, Jesse Ventura, Dennis Miller, Issac Hayes, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lisa Kudrow, Donald Trump, John Larroquette, Robin Leach, Tim Burton, Dionne Warwick, Larry David, David Letterman, Patricia Arquette, David Spade, Audrey Meadows, John O'Hurley, Matt LeBlanc, Molly Simms, Gilbert Gottfried, Matt Lauer, Kelly Ripa, Megan Mullally, Carrie Fisher, David Arquette, Joe Piscopo, and Rob Lowe.
