“The possession of knowledge does not kill the sense of wonder and mystery.
There is always more mystery.”
– Anais Nin
“IT IS PERFECTLY TRUE, AS THE PHILOSOPHERS SAY, THAT LIFE MUST BE UNDERSTOOD BACKWARDS. BUT THEY FORGET THE OTHER PROPOSITION, THAT IT MUST BE LIVED FORWARDS.”
— SØREN KIERKEGAARD
…Wellington’s beloved mind reader, Mike Kay.
Mike brings old school vaudevillian mystery to the Festival and helps us to educate the audience that Burlesque is not just about the strip, using his mind to offer the tease. A professional behind the scenes and a welcomed part of the Festival Community.
At one point he actually causes an audience volunteer to slap their own face in shock.
Get out of her head!
Mike’s show combined mind reading and other cerebral tricks that were difficult to explain…Definitely a performance that has more depth and authenticity than a “magic” show. Highly recommended.
Mike Kay is engaging and entertaining. Our audiences always love him and we look forward to having him back on the Caburlesque stage.
You’ve entertained me, you’ve educated me.
