The Amazing Kreskin is headed to Ottumwa

The Amazing Kreskin to perform at BVC Friday at 7:30 p.m.

The Ottumwa Bridge View Center will house "The Amazing Kreskin" Friday evening at 7:30 p.m.

The Amazing Kreskin has built a career in show business on his apparent ability to read people's thoughts. He refuses to call himself a mind-reader or psychic however, and prefers to call himself a mentalist. Larry Gawronski, the executive director of the Bridge View Center says the hit CBS show The Mentalist is based off the Amazing Kreskin himself. Gawronski says the performance is the perfect event for a Friday night with Halloween being just around the corner.

â??The Amazing Kreskin will perform a 2-and-a-half-hour-show at the Bridge View Center. The first act is going to be 90 minutes,â?? Gawronski said. â??The second act is 45 [minutes], and he plans on going through a lot of mentalist activities where he will actually read the minds of some of the volunteers of his audience. He will also bring a lot of volunteers up on stage who want to participate in the ghost sightings that he has.â??

Tickets cost 33 dollars at the door. For more information click here.
