MAGICIAN AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ILLUSIONIST KEITH BARRY TO STAR IN HIS OWN UPCOMING ENTERTAINMENT SPECIAL ON CBS
Magician and psychological illusionist Keith Barry will star in his own upcoming entertainment special on the CBS Television Network. The special will feature Barry displaying his vast range of magic skills on celebrities as he demonstrates his intuitive capabilities and amazing talents.
Barry, already a popular talent in his native Ireland, has become a Hollywood force to be reckoned with over the past two years. Fueled by the success of his 2004 MTV Spring Break special, his live stage show, "Brainwashed," debuted with 19 sold-out shows in January 2005, and was later showcased at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Hollywood. In May, Barry performed his live show at the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas for their 10th Anniversary celebration as part of an all-star lineup that included Coldplay, Bon Jovi and Nine Inch Nails. His television shows have been broadcast in over 26 countries.
Barry's talents range from card tricks and sleight of hand to psychological manipulation and instant induction hypnosis. In addition, his repertoire includes death-defying acts such as catching a bullet in his teeth and driving while blindfolded. He has performed these illusions and on a wide range of celebrities in his stage shows and specials.
Keith Barry's special will be executive produced by Michael Davies and Eamonn Maguire and produced by Michael Bloom.
