Mentalist Casts A Spell Over Scarlett HQ
Today Scarlett Entertainment and Events were thrilled to welcome Italian Mentalist Luca to their headquarters in Devon. During his visit, Luca showed the team two of his mentalist tricks and took part in an interview with the marketing team’s very own Juliana Rodriguez.
Based between London and Naples, Luca is an award-winning mentalist and mind reader who can perform in both English and Italian. There is a huge amount of buzz surrounding his talents, with his recent 4-page spread in popular Italian magazine ‘TOP’.
During his visit, Luca asked the team at Scarlett Entertainment to take part in two very different mentalism shows that showcased the versatility of his skills.
For his first show of mentalism, Luca had a bag with four balls inside - three white and one black. He invited four of the team up and asked them to each take a ball, but to keep the colour of that ball concealed from him. He then asked each volunteer, ‘do you have the black ball?’ to which he instructed them to reply ‘yes’ - from their responses he was able to rule out two people, leaving just two to choose between. He then asked the two remaining participants to stand in the middle of the room and recite, ‘my name is X and I have the black ball’ - from this he accurately discerned who in fact did have the black ball. A fantastic demonstration of his ability to read minds and body language.
Luca’s second trick revolved around accurately predicting the outcome of a numerical trick. Firstly, he took out his wallet and asked a member of the audience to pick out his business card, ensure that there was only one card, and then place it face up on a desk. He then proceeded to ask one person what month they were born in (they answered August) and another which day they were born on (they answered the 2nd), before then turning to that date in his calendar. On this date was written a long number. On checking the back of the business card that was placed face up on the desk earlier, that very same number was written. An incredible feat of prediction.
The company’s Business Development Manager, Xabier Garcés, said: 'The way he read our minds was very impressive! The engaging way he talked to us as the audience, and his sheer skill at being able to accurately read minds and astound with unexpected outcomes makes him an excellent option for clients!'
The whole team were amazed by Luca's uncanny abilities and were incredibly impressed by his charisma and stage presence.
Stay tuned for Juliana’s exclusive interview with Luca, which will be going live on Scarlett Entertainment TV very soon.
