Colin Cloud – Forensic Mind Reader


“You see, but you do not observe.” – Arthur Conan Doyle

Colin Cloud is different.

Imagine someone who can tell you what you do for a living, what your hobbies are and exactly what you’ve done that day. Even the things you wouldn’t want him to, merely by looking at you. Nothing gets past him.

He has the ability to deduce everything about you. Everything. And undoubtedly, he will.

Having been accepted into university at the age of just fifteen to study Forensic Investigation and with a passion for Criminal Profiling, it’s no surprise he’s developed near superhuman abilities, leading him to being described by his fans and the media as a modern-day, real-life Sherlock Holmes.

People are the mystery and it’s Colin’s endeavour to solve them.

“… a Sherlock Holmes of the Mind.” – Daily Record

“I am absolutely fascinated by the art … and mind reader Colin Cloud didn’t disappoint … a great showman” – Edinburgh Little Black Book (Relating to previews of ‘See what you want to see,’)

“Colin Cloud takes the impossible, makes it possible, leaving his audience open-mouthed… and just a little nervous.” – Liam Rudden, Edinburgh Evening News (Relating to previews of ‘See what you want to see.’)

Colin Cloud is an internationally respected ‘Mentalist.’ Considered by his peers to be the next ‘Derren Brown,’ his performances have been taking him all over the world. From performing Off Broadway in New York and in London’s West End, to Ceasers Palace in Las Vegas and the Magic Castle in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

He’s performed sellout shows at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival, The Edinburgh International Magic Festival; headlined The Trickery, in Aberdeen, and The Stand Comedy Club in both Glasgow and Edinburgh on numerous occasions.

He’s appeared reading the mind of Jonathan Ross on ITV’s Penn and Teller: Fool Us and was the first mentalist to appear on Britain’s Got Talent. Furthermore, he received four yeses from Simon Cowell and his team of judges.

‘See what you want to see,’ takes all of Colin’s now infamous skills, abilities and techniques as a ‘Forensic Mind Reader’ and offers an original exhilarating and fully immersive theatre experience.

Join Colin as he shares how to find the guiltiest person in the room. Proves his genius, whilst dismissing the belief that only woman can multitask, as he completes two near impossible tasks at the same time. He’ll profile the sort of person a random audience member is most likely to kill and free himself from shackles using nothing more than his sense of smell. You’ll see him demonstrate his ability to know everything about you and in the grand finale, you’ll discover how different we all are … or perhaps, aren’t.

This show is designed to baffle your senses, challenge your thinking and give you a genuine insight into how you too can begin knowing the seemingly impossible.

We’ve come to believe these types things can only be achieved on TV shows, in books or on movie screens. ‘See what you want to see’ bridges that gap between fact and fiction. You’ll see how he’s taken real themes from the world of crime and profiling and brought them into a theatrical setting involving the entire audience on the journey.

Don’t be afraid.

Because fear just makes it easier for him to read you.
