This is a brilliant show - you will leave thinking how did he do that, perhaps he really can read our minds! Great stage presence and lots of fun interaction with the audience, culminating in an amazing finale!

One of my favourite shows that I’ve seen this year! Excellent show that is well worth the watch. As someone who is studying psychology, it was very interesting for me his tricks based on human behaviour and predictably. The whole audience was in wonder.

Had never heard of this show until someone gave me a flyer in the street. I have never seen a mind reader before so thought why not. Very happy we did. My husband, son and I loved the show. Tomas is very pleasant and even had a chat with my son after which made his day! Also the show was amazing! Would thoroughly recommend to everyone!

You wouldn’t expect it from someone with a face so young, but the moment Tomas McCabe steps on stage, he radiates a sense of authority. Maybe it’s just the lab coat, but McCabe’s energy and articulation immediately set the expectation that The Mind Reading Experiments is going to be a captivating show – and it does not disappoint.
