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.
Alex is also a highly acclaimed creator within the magic world, known for his unique thinking and in-depth discussion and teaching. He has written several books and courses on his own techniques and delivered lectures to psychology students, mentalists, and magicians 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.
In 2013, Alex joined the then emerging ensemble illusion show ‘Champions of Magic’ which has gone on to extensivly tour the UK, USA, Mexico, and Canada.
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".
Drawing on a mixture of expertise in psychology and unique mentalism techniques, the audience are invited on a journey through the inner-workings of the human mind, as Alex McAleer combines contemporary mind-reading with sharp wit and a flair for showmanship.
He demonstrates why you should never play cards with a mind reader, shares his apparent telepathic gift with an audience member, and explores the possibilities of his exceptional people watching-skills.
The show is interactive and engaging, funny and compelling, combining the stagecraft of a true showman and the sharply-honed skills of a ground-breaking mentalist.
