MENTALIST GUY BAVLI RETURNS TO OUR STAGE
Published: Feb 5, 2019
FORT LAUDERDALE – From Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to New York’s Carnegie Hall, mentalist Guy Bavli has astounded audiences with his almost superpower to move objects with his mind and read the thoughts of others. He returns to the intimate Abdo New River Room at the Broward Center for four shows Thursday, Feb. 14 – Sunday, Feb. 17. While Bavli is a Dunninger Award winner for Distinguished Professionalism in the Performance of Mentalism,” an honor which has also been bestowed upon Amazing Kreskin and Uri Geller, the audience is the star of the show as Bavli mystifies them with a infectious combination of humor and suspense. Bavli was awarded a contract to perform 400 shows each year for three consecutive years at Caesars Palace Casino making him the first longest-performing mentalist to work in Las Vegas. He drew a wider audience through television appearances including as segment on Stan Lee’s Super Human featuring his telekinesis skills. He created some of his famous acts such as bending a stop sign and acid roulette while appearing in the NBC series Phenomenon, which co-starred Criss Angel and Uri Geller. A reporter reviewing a Miami appearance by Bavli for New Times wrote, “At one point, I literally jogged to the bathroom so I wouldn't miss much… a couple of final acts blew my mind.” Performances are Thursday and Friday at 7:30 pm.; Saturday at 1 and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday at 6 p.m. Tickets are $35-$45.
