About the Oz Pearlman Interview

I am Oz (pronounced OH's) Pearlman, one of the busiest performing mentalists in the country. I developed an interest in magic at a young age and what started as a mere hobby became a lifelong passion. After a couple of years spent working on Wall Street, I decided to pursue my dream and become a full time entertainer. I have been dazzling audiences with my mindreading abilities and world-class sleight of hand for over two decades.
My client list reads like a who's who of politicians, professional athletes, A-list celebrities, and Fortune 500 companies some of which include Bill Clinton, Kelly Ripa, Chris Rock, Larry David, Robin Williams, Steven Spielberg, to name a few and the New York Times has declared after watching my show that "Even skeptical viewers are won over!." My television appearances have aired on both national and international networks, including recent appearances on The Today Show, NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, CBS's Early Show and ABC's World News Tonight. My radio appearance on the top-rated Elvis Duran show in the morning was heard by millions across the nation.

Aside from entertaining audiences around the world, I am recognized by my peers and highly sought after to lecture about my original techniques in the fields of mentalism & magic. I have been invited to speak across 6 continents and over 30 countries, including a standing-room only crowd at the legendary Magic Circle in London. I've released several DVDs teaching the arts of mentalism and magic, including the blockbuster hit Born to Perform Card Magic, widely acknowledged as one of the most popular beginner magic DVDs ever released, having sold over a hundred thousand copies worldwide.

As if all that wasn't enough to keep my schedule packed, I am constantly pushing the limits of my body and mind as an endurance athlete. I have competed in many notable races including the Hawaii Ironman, Western States 100 Mile Run, Spartathlon 153 Mile Run, Leadville 100 Mile Run and Badwater 135 Mile Run. I've won dozens of marathons and ultra-marathons throughout the country, and I take great pride in my marathon PR of 2 hours and 23 minutes. I ran the San Francisco marathon yesterday (July 31, 2016).

My unique blend of mentalism and magic create an interactive experience that is redefining the very nature of a "magic show", one that truly needs to be seen to be believed!

Proof!
