Who Is “Curtis The Mentalist?”

Curtis Waltermire began entertaining audiences with his unusual brand of mind-reading and magical entertainment in the mid 1980’s in central Illinois.

He can currently be seen on PBS television on an episode of the KPTS TV show “Street Rodding American Style” driving a restored 1963 Chevy II Nova through an autocross track while completely blindfolded.  He performs the world’s most unique blindfolded car drive; a stunt that has baffled his fellow mentalists and magicians for many years.  

His brand-new, 90-minute full evening one-man show “The Mastermind Show” opened in November of 2015 in Wichita, Kansas and has received rave reviews.  It currently plays at Wichita’s Loony Bin Comedy Club on select dates and times.

Curtis is known primarily for his remarkable mind-reading demonstrations and his incredible blindfolded stunts.  He tells random audience members the names of people they are thinking about, plays tic-tac-toe against spectators while blindfolded, controls and predicts their very actions, draws images that exist only in their minds, and gives answers to questions that spectators are merely thinking of asking him! All of this with an air of humor that makes his presentations as funny as they are astounding!

  • He has appeared in numerous newspaper, radio and local TV spots.  He regularly performs mind-reading stunts live on local television and radio stations.
  • Most of Curtis’ performances are almost entirely self-contained: simply provide a willing audience, a microphone and a venue and he does the rest!
  • Curtis can customize presentations to fit a theme, a company product or message, or to celebrate a special occasion.
  • The booking process is fast, simple and hassle-free!

Stage and Platform Shows

Stage and platform performances are Curtis' specialty!  Your guests will be completely disarmed as Curtis struts out on stage and dives deep into their minds right from the get-go!  Soon your guests find themselves fighting for a chance to win a brand-new $100 bill, playing Curtis in a game of blindfolded tic-tac-toe, trying to beat his human lie-detector test, and so much more!  He even answers questions that your audience is merely thinking about!  Curtis' performances always contain a surprise ending that has audiences leaping to their feet.  A typical show is 45-60 minutes, but can be extended up to 90 minutes in length.

Curtis will stroll around and mingle with your guests for hours and entertain them right where they are sitting or standing.  Your guests will laugh in astonishment as Curtis stands right before them and performs extraordinary feats such as telling them in detail about their dream vacations, moving objects with his mind that rest in their own hands, unlocking their cell phones by divining their PINs, and so much more!  Guests often tell Curtis "I've seen this on TV, but this is happening RIGHT HERE in front of me!"  Typically 1-3 hours in length, but full-day packages for corporate are available.  Can be combined with stage/platform shows.

“The Jackson Co. Livestock Assoc. was the 1st time I had the pleasure of witnessing the “power” Curtis commanded over a large audience. I knew several of the “volunteers” that were asked to participate. Most were somewhat shy but they had become so involved in the program they did not want to disappoint the rest of the crowd and were anxious to see the outcome of the task they were asked to perform. The entire audience was buzzing with excitement by the conclusion of the show. There was no chatting with your neighbors as sometimes happens in large groups. Everyone was totally hanging on every word Curtis said. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening! Days later people are stilling talking about how amazing the program was and how much they enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend Curtis The Mentalist
for any gathering where you would want to WOW your audience!”Annette Cline--Cline Realty and Auction, LLC
