Alex McAleer possesses the uncanny ability to apparently tap into his audiences' minds and read their thoughts at will. Drawing on a mixture of expertise in psychology, unique mentalism techniques, and masterful analysis of audience members, Alex combines contemporary mind reading with sharp wit and a flair for showmanship.
Growing up as an only child, Alex had many hobbies - including magic - but it wasn’t until his mother passed away when he was fourteen that he began to study the techniques of psychics, mentalists, and hypnotists throughout history, learning and developing the unusual skills that have since taken him all over the world.
A highly acclaimed creator within the magic world, Alex is known for his unique thinking, creativity, and in-depth discussion and teaching. He has written several books on his own techniques, as well as delivered lectures and workshops to psychology students, mentalists, and magicians around the world, including at the prestigious Magic Circle.
Throughout his career Alex has made countless television appearances including ITV’s Good Morning Britain (UK), Seven Network’s Today Tonight (Australia), and NBC’s Access Hollywood (USA). In 2019 he achived a childhood ambition of appearing on the worlds longest running children’s television program Blue Peter.
Since 2013, Alex has perfomed over 500 shows across the USA, Mexico, Canada, and the UK, including London's West End, with the ensemble illusion show 'Champions of Magic'.
In 2014 Alex took his one-man show 'Alex the Mind Reader' to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. He received critical acclaim in 2016 at Perth Fringe World with his show 'Mind Reader' where he was nominated for the Cabaret Award. He returned to the festival in 2017 with a revamped version of the same show and a new late night show 'Brainwashed'.
Having spent well-over a decade perfecting the art of knowing what's going on inside other peoples' heads, Alex has earned his reputation as a funny, engaging, and charismatic entertainer – all without selling his soul to Simon Cowell.
Alex McAleer’s performances are interactive, engaging, and laugh-out-loud funny; combining the stagecraft of a true showman and the sharply-honed skills of a ground-breaking mentalist.
Alex reveals audience members innermost thoughts, demonstrates why you should never play cards with a Mind Reader, and proves his exceptional people watching skills. The audience are as much a part of the show as Alex when they take part in these unbelievable demonstrations of his psychological skills.
