Alex McAleer possesses the uncanny ability to apparently tap into his audiences' minds and read their thoughts at will.
Drawing on a mixture of expertise in psychology, unique mentalism techniques, and masterful analysis of audience members, Alex combines contemporary mind reading with sharp wit and a flair for showmanship.
Being an only-child, Alex had many hobbies growing-up, including magic, but it wasn’t until his mother passed away when he was fourteen years old that he began to study the manipulation techniques of psychics, mentalists, and hypnotists.
Gradually, he taught himself the unusual skills and techniques that have since taken him all over the world.
Alex has made countless television appearances around the world including ITV’s Good Morning Britain (UK), Seven Network’s Today Tonight (Australia), and NBC’s Access Hollywood (USA). In 2019 Alex appeared on BBC’s Blue Peter, the worlds longest running children’s television program.
In 2014 Alex took his one-man show to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and three shows to Australia’s Perth Fringe World Festival in 2016 and 2017 where he was nominated for the cabaret award.
Since 2014 Alex has toured extensively with the ensemble illusion show ‘Champions of Magic’ completing 6 UK tours including a run in London. The show has toured North America in 2017 and 2018 including a record breaking run of 41 shows in 17 days in Toronto, Canada over the holiday season. The show continues to tour the United States in 2019 with international dates to come in 2020.
