Mark Edward is a professional mentalist who specializes in magic of the mind. He has spent over twenty five years in world class venues from high-end night clubs and theaters to hundreds of private party and corporate events. As one of only five specially chosen and trained mediums in the history of Hollywood’s famed Magic Castle, he has performed fifteen years of seances that helped him perfect the role of spirit medium and psychic entertainer. During this time he wrote several books on these subjects and appeared on television as both primary consultant and on-air performer in such diverse programming as A & E’s Biography: “Houdini, the Great Escape,” NBC’s “The Other Side” and “Psychic Secrets Revealed,” The Sci-Fi Channel’s “Mysteries, Magic and Miracles,” The Discovery Channel’s “Forces Beyond,” and most recently on two episodes of The Learning Channel’s “Exploring the Unknown.” His featured segment as a spirit medium on the pilot episode of Showtime’s “Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!” series entitled “Speaking with the Dead” helped secure an Emmy Award nomination for that episode in 2002. He continues to be consulted by the media for his knowledge of spiritualism, psychic fraud and ghost lore.
