The Amazing Kreskin at Shalin Liu

The Amazing Kreskin will perform at the Shalin Liu Center in Rockport!

He already knows what you are thinking! The Amazing Kreskin – “the world’s foremost mentalist” – will amaze you with his uncanny predictions. Kreskin's signature piece is requesting that his check be hidden somewhere within the venue he is appearing. If he fails to find it, he will forfeit his fee. Kreskin continues to offer $50,000 to anybody that can prove that he employs paid secret assistants or confederates in any phase of his program.
