Magician/Mentalist Brian Ledbetter - Sponsored by Entertainment Unlimited

Imagine seeing inanimate objects seemingly come to life and move using only the power of the mind. Forks bend and spoons twist into a knot. Unexplainable coincidences occur. Brian charmingly reads the thoughts of strangers he has never met, recites the complex serial number of a borrowed dollar bill he's never seen or touched, and correctly predicts a word that is merely thought of by an audience volunteer. Truly fascinating!
