Dean Jacob is fast becoming Ireland’s next big name in the world of Mind Reading, Magic and Escapology. From breaking records for holding his breath, to predicting headlines for the Sun newspaper, and reading the minds of locals and tourists alike in the glittering city of Las Vegas, Dean is quickly building a reputation as one of Ireland’s most diverse stars.

Dean brings his brand-new stage show BELIEVE to Youghal, this May bank holiday weekend. This show is designed to educate people on the world of fake psychics. For years, Dean has studied fake psychics and realized that some tend to use similar techniques to mentalists, to make it appear as though they are predicting the future or contacting those that have passed. While Dean openly admits he does NOT have any psychic powers or paranormal abilities, he uses a mix of genuine psychological techniques, showmanship, magic, misdirection and confidence to be able to read minds, predict the future and even control peoples free will!!

You will laugh, you will question, and lastly you will wonder how the hell did he do that??!!

Tickest €10 are available at Cree’s Card Shop, North Main Street, Youghal or online through Eventbrite.
