What The Press Say

A hyperactive Harry Potter who knows what you’re thinking The New York Times

The two most memorable bits come from Chris Cox, aka “the Mentalist”, whose mass mind-reading acts are as funny as they are jaw-dropping Time Out Sydney

Chris Cox – The Mentalist’s routine ended with a deafening roar and a standing ovation. Having the biggest “wow” moment of the show led to Cox becoming a crowd favorite. “Chris Cox was my favorite. He is so quirky, entertaining and fun,” audience member, Francesca Geis, said after the show. Iowa State Daily

Chris Cox (The Mentalist) with his mind-reading act works so fast that it was almost impossible to imagine how he could work his prestidigitation so quickly. At one point he had a young boy on stage and put him behind a curtain, gave him general instructions of what to do, and magically duplicated all that he did without being able to see him. It was impressive to behold. Broadway World

This show was all about the amazing Chris Cox, who reaches into the minds of the audience and reveals things that are truly mind blowing. He’s a cross between Pee Wee Herman and a computer geek with incredible mind-reading stunts that will astounded, amazed and thoroughly have you wanting more. This wacky mentalist is disarming with his charm and wit, revealing things you never thought he could know. Times Square Chronicles

Chris Cox’s mind-manipulation act, which deserves special mention: it’s utterly manic and a highlight, though it often feels as though it belongs in its own show” TheatreBuzz.Au

The award-winning The Mentalist (Chris Cox) is also a dynamic and charming high-energy performer as he reads the minds of audience members, astonishingly revealing obscure, specific details of their everyday lives and histories. The Blurb

He’s a thin, bespectacled gent, and other than a Tintin-esque tuft of hair and a penchant for tartan trousers, he doesn’t seem to have any of the gimmicks (elaborate costumes, flames, dancing girls) that his colleagues include in their acts. But Cox is a whirlwind of energy and, most importantly, lightning-quick improvised humour that makes him a hoot to watch even before he does any of what he’s a whiz at – apparently reading people’s minds. Cox appears in both halves of the show, with his first set a one-on-one encounter with a volunteer where, impressively enough, he is able to deduce details about his bewildered guest that should be impossible for him to know. His achievements after the interval are considerably more gobsmacking though, when he first reveals facets of random audience members based on touching brief questionnaires they’ve filled in, sealed in thick envelopes and placed in a container onstage. The brow-furrowing goes a step further when someone Cox is addressing touches someone next to them, and he instantly names that person and states facts about them that he cannot possible have been informed about in any conventional sense. It’s an astounding skill, effortlessly implemented. – Bruce Denhill

The Mentalist held the real ace on the night. Bearing a physical resemblance to Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory, he left the audience gasping in astonishment as he struck up a connection with members of the audience and then proceeded to probe through their thoughts. One of which involved tights and a unicorn. That’s all I will say… – IOL

Then we met quirky Chris Cox, a mind reader who blends magic, psychology and humour to produce an act that is both eccentric and yes, mind blowing. Tall and skinny, with scuffed tackies and a Tintin quiff, he’s able to warm up an audience very quickly. Until he starts telling people when their birthdays are, and what sport they play, and who their favourite band is. Then it all starts to feel a little hair-raisingly chilly. But he’s a class act, no doubt – I spoke to the three people who he had singled out in the audience, and they all swore they were not part of the show, had never met Chris Cox, and that everything he said about them was true. Spooky! – Weekend Special

Chris Cox took my mental image / concept / prior experience of mind readers and flipped all categories! Literally bounding around stage with exuberance (kind of like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh – but with braces, glasses and a neat outfit), Chris charmed the audience quickly with his endearing nature. Whereas ‘typical’ mind readers can come across as a bit scary / creepy with often serious routines, Chris ensured that his routines were the opposite – lighthearted, charming and not at all scary. The level of details he went to when ‘picking the brains’ of his audience members were incredible – much of the audience members were in disbelief. We are talking about ridiculous levels of detail here. Tay Around Town
