What's the talk about?

Ash Pryce, founder and President of the Edinburgh Skeptics Society (and of Welsh ancestry!), presents a fully interactive demonstration of various tricks that psychics have used over the years.

From the Fox Sisters through to Uri Geller, psychics have been claiming to be able to do things beyond our understanding, but Ash Pryce knows better. Nearly all of the major claims of psychics and mediums can easily be re-created and tonight Ash will be reproducing such famous feats as Uri Geller's Telekinesis, Philipino Psychic Surgery, the Remote Viewing experiments of America's "Stargate" program (The 70s CIA shenanigans and not the inter dimensional, Go-aould busting kind) and much more - including an attempt to beat the odds of the Randi Million.

A fun, entertaining and magic filled evening that also takes a look at the history of psychic trickery and how it has become such a popular phenomenon. Warning to those on the front row - there will be blood . . .

DISCLAIMER. It should be pointed out that I am NOT going to be reveal how magicians perform their routines. Any tricks that are performed will be done so as part of a demonstration and I will not reveal how mentalists and magicians perform them. The "tricks" that are revealed are ones that were and in some cases still are used by people who claim to have supernatural gifts and are associated more with psychics than with magicians.
