Peter Gross is a comedian who also knows a couple of really cool tricks. He brings together stand up comedy and magic to create a show that features plenty of audience participation, spontaneity and memorable moments. Whether Peter's working at a comedy club, a board room or a hotel ball room, his show is in 'perfect pitch' with his audience.
20 years of experience performing magic and comedy, Peter offers a wide range of solutions for whatever type of event you are planning. Peter has hosted awards presentations and performed customized shows for product rollouts, but he is just as comfortable entertaining individuals one-on-one at a cocktail party or mixer.
Consider hiring Peter for sales meetings, company outings, off-sites, award ceremonies, receptions, client appreciation events, IPO celebrations.
Events come in all sizes, so Peter and the Boston Hysterical Society offer a wide range of magical performances.
Peter doesn't require a lights, smoke or even a stage to be AMAZING. Peter can create amazing magic for audience of one or two. And close up magic is almost always the most memorable magical experience, because it's JUST FOR YOU.
Whether you call it close up magic, strolling magic, street magic, hand magic, impromptu magic or sleight-of-hand, Peter's highly interactive and engaging magic brings life to small groups or within larger gatherings. Using a deck of cards, a pad of paper, a borrowed dollar bill, and other common objects, Peter delights with visually stunning magic that is often remembered months or years later. Peter's close up magic is suitable cocktail parties, hospitality suites, receptions and ship christenings.
Ever wondered what it might be like to know what someone else is thinking? Your spouse? your boss? your kids? Mentalist Peter Gross knows...and he's willing to share. Mind Reading and Mentalist shows became popular with the introduction of NBC's "The Mentalist", but Peter has been reading minds for a long, long time.
Magic at it's best is a chance to amaze an audience and create a sense of wonder. So why do so many of magic shows look like a trip to a underfunded circus? Peter's Mentalist act is magic stripped of all that is tacky and 'Las Vegas': The show includes no 'magical' apparatus, no sequined costumes, no loud music or smoke.
Peter's Mind Reading differs from most traditional magic shows in that there is only one trick: knowing how and what people think, sometime even before they do. Peter's show creates a real aura of "But How?!" in the most so sophisticated audiences and more than once individuals have confused Peter with someone who claims real Extra Sensory Perception (E.S.P). Peter only claims to be an Extraordinary Smooth Performer.
