The Mastermind Show with Curtis The Mentalist

The Mastermind Show with Curtis The Mentalist

He's a Persian Gulf Era Army veteran, entertainer, speaker, grandpa, cool dad, and above-average husband; but he makes his living entertaining people by reading people's minds and making them laugh. Definitely not your typical mentalist, he talks about and teaches on various things such as scams and cons, interviews touring professionals and their "roadkill" gig stories, mental life hacks, weird and unusual news and history, tricks of the mind, and just about anything else he finds interesting and funny and thinks you will too. Comedy mentalist/magician/ speaker/actor/ grandpa/ cool dad and above-average husband Curtis Waltermire (a.k.a. "Curtis The Mentalist") shares all of this and more from his perspective of over 50 years on the planet and 30 years in business.
