Paul Pacific is Canada’s leading mentalist. Paul is a performer who uses telepathy, the power of suggestion and sound psychological principal
Experience: While Paul Pacific was in public school he was first introduced to a man that would eventually shape his destiny. That man was the Amazing Kreskin whose TV show at the time was the number one rated program on television (second only to Hockey Night in Canada.) At that time Paul was very interested in magic but what Kreskin performed was different…STRONGER in some ways! He realized then that REAL magic exists in the potential of the human mind. From that point on, a seed was planted in Paul‘s mind to pursue a career demonstrating and highlighting the telepathic experience.
Paul focused his studies on psychology, taking every available class from personality psychology to deviance. He specifically targeted anything to do with body language or non-verbal communication, even if it meant researching on his own. He minored his studies in performing theater, therefore using his entire education as a gestalt to enhance a career in performing telepathic experiments to live audiences around the world.
After his formal education, Paul began lecturing to corporations on mnemonics and memory techniques, thus helping employees to improve efficiency in all aspects of their daily functions using more effective methods of mind management. It was during this time while demonstrating memory techniques that Paul would throw in the occasional mental experiment. He soon realized that the audiences‘ reaction to the tests of telepathy were more than even HE could have predicted!
Paul has since performed in more than 5 countries. To list just two of his accomplishments, he was once asked to find the general manager of Paramount Canada‘s Wonderland who was hiding somewhere in the park. He managed to find her less than 2 hours and 45 minutes even though she was wearing a DISGUISE!! On another occasion, he drove a car while blindfolded through the streets of Niagara Falls, using only the guidance of the thoughts of the brave committee in the car with him.
Paul is currently engaged in performances for universities/colleges, corporations and resort hotels and is waiting to share his unique talent with you. When asked what‘s yet to come in his unique career, Paul jokingly quips “What do you think I am?! A mind-reader??!”
Performance Style: Paul’s main ingredient is SHOWMANSHIP which he uses to tie his show all together and make it an entertaining experience. The real stars of Paul’s shows are the audience members themselves.
Mentalist: This is Paul at his best! Whether or not he is working on a small riser or a ballroom floor, Paul‘s versatility and adaptability will be perfect for your venue. Generally, this type of show lasts over an hour and includes all aspects of the mind‘s potential, including telepathy, clairvoyance and precognition. The show is highlighted with humour and plenty of audience participation. Although Paul‘s show is funny, it is “squeaky clean” and suitable for any audience. Paul‘s versatility also extends to the length of his show. While in most cases an hour long performance is ideal, Paul can increase or decrease the amount of time necessary for your specific needs. See for yourself why his show is the best of its kind!
Trade Shows: If you want your booth to stand out at a trade show, then you can‘t afford to do without Paul Pacific! Paul will utilize your company‘s product or service in his mind-reading experiments to customize his performance to your specific needs. Imagine an extraordinary experience that your potential clients will NEVER forget because your company will be locked in their mind for DAYS afterwards. This unique experience will leave your competitors wishing that they had hired Paul first!!
Intimate Mind-Reading: This type of show is ideal for events such as: cocktail parties, hospitality suites, or dinners where there is no central stage. Paul will astonish your group with the same intensity as the stage concert, only in a more intimate and personal manner, such as from table to table, or from small group to group. Imagine each one of your guests expressing their enjoyment at experiencing telepathy first hand, up close and personal.
Publicity Stunts: Anything that has to do with the mind can be turned into a major news gathering event. Do you want some free publicity? Hire Paul to drive blindfolded through the streets of your city for example. Have him find a hidden object somewhere in your business, or even in your city. Have Paul customize the publicity event to fit your needs. He once predicted the headlines of The Globe and Mail newspaper weeks in advance for Taboo Resort. He has also opened a new mall by finding the “shopping centre‘s key” hidden somewhere in the building. Use your imagination to come up with some fantastic stunt, or contact Paul to have him suggest a few ideas to draw attention to your business.
Personality: Paul was born in Oakville Ontario on September 12 1970, which would make him a Virgo, for what it‘s worth, as Paul does not believe in Astrology. He thinks of it as if it were like perfume. He can smell it but he would not want to drink it! Paul does not foster any new age beliefs and is quick to educate his audience that everything that HE demonstrates is based on psychology.
Paul is not the seventh son of a seventh son, nor was he dropped on his head or struck by lightning. When asked how he developed these special abilities, Paul‘s belief is that everyone has some degree of telepathic potential. Not everyone, however, has developed them to such a degree of sensitivity. “A child of twelve could do what I do, with about twenty years of practice”, says Paul.
Why hire Paul Pacific? Paul can combine ideas listed above or even create new ones based on your requests. He can customize his performance for your needs. To date, Paul has never failed to exceed the requirements of any venue presented to him. Whether or not he is working on a small riser or a ballroom floor, Paul’s versatility and adaptability will be perfect for your venue

“Your show was nothing short of amazing. As when any large group gets together, it is usually very difficult to find a performance that would appeal to the masses. Your performance was the first I have known that was truly enjoyed by all. Not only did [you] provide an entertainment factor but you also involved the audience throughout the entire show. There were elements of amazement and laughter and you kept the audience thinking well after the show ended. I am still today receiving calls from individuals complimenting your show. As we have gatherings on a yearly basis, you will be highly considered for future performances. We will also recommend your show for other Scotiabank events, as there are many throughout the year. Thank you for the enjoyable evening and we look forward to seeing you in the future”.

I have to tell you that we really hit the jackpot this year when we asked you to take part. […] We have heard from most of our guests and, to a one, they have declared it our best party ever.
