The mentalist skills of Ben will make you challenge what you believe is possible, as you wonder whether or not he can actually read your mind, which is an experience that no-one will ever forget. Constant demand from previous clients just go to show that Ben can turn any and all events into a day to remember.

Everyone has seen singers and dancers, why not hire a Mentalist?

Imagine seeing this happen infront of you:

  • Duplicate drawings that have been kept a perfect secret.
  • Impossible ‘Rainman’-esque memory demonstrations.
  • Tell you the name of someone you are thinking about.
  • Influence and control behaviour and choices.
  • Demonstrations of Sherlock Holmes’ skill in reading clues that most if not all will have never seen before.

Ben has perfomed at all manner of private and corporate functions, to weddings and from charity concerts to garden parties, and even for descendants of Arthur Conan Doyle himself.

Due to the intense popularity of stage mentalism at the moment, Ben’s stand up act is very quickly becoming the most popular booking of choice.

Ben’s stand up show is a unique take on mentalism and impossible mind reading. The stand up show is best suited to corporate and private parties, usually seen as an after dinner form of entertainment, this act can however be tailored to suit almost any event with a stage and is flexible enough to be performed in shorter time constraints.

You will see Ben reveal thought of names, dates, PIN numbers, you’ll see live Sherlockian demonstrations of reading peoples clues to reveal information that he could not possibly know. As well as the ultimate test of influence and control over thoughts and behaviour with a game of Russian Roulette but with a musical twist.

Ben’s show is perfect for any corporate event and can be made to suit any time constraint or venue. Whether it is in front of 20 people or 2020 people, Ben is sure to make this interactive and fun show the talk of your event.

Performance Schedule

  • Ben's close up / mix and mingle performance can continue on as long as requested to do so.
  • Ben's stage piece can be tailored to fit any time constraints and all venues. A maximum time of 2 hrs.
  • Zoom performance starts at a minimum of 30 minutes and can be completely customisable from there.

We had a pre drinks reception for our company offsite - Ben was great and went round to different people. Everyone was really impressed and had a great time interacting with him. Would definitely recommend.

Location: North Yorkshire

Ben is such a gentleman and a wonderfully entertaining addition to any event you might have. The guests at our wedding were amazed by what he could do and despite best efforts from some to out smart him, he couldn't be tripped up in predicting their thoughts. If you are looking for something different and a genuinely kind and lovely person to mingle between your guests, then I cannot recommend Ben enough.

What I saw of him was very good, and he was well received by the guests.

Richard Lovell - Painswick Building Services

Event: Private Party
Location: Gloucestershire

Upon first presentation Ben was polite, accommodating, and very friendly and professional. He spent the afternoon going table to table and group to group introducing himself and performing some very impressive and, in many cases, very sophisticated tricks. To my knowledge, he left a great impression on everybody and never failed to be accurate, his presentation was slick and appealing and he was top drawer. Thank you for making the party one to remember!

Ben was a big hit with our team and left everyone wondering quite how he did it! Everyone was talking about him for a long time afterwards. We would definitely consider hiring him or other Warble acts again. The evening was a great success all round.

Ben turned up well in advance of the event so he could take in the ‘lay of the land’. Our guests were blown away by his skills and artistry and his presence added to the success of our party. Ben was very courteous and a genuinely nice guy and we were so pleased and grateful that he was there. His work ethic was exceptional.

Excellent from start to finish. Effortless with the tables as he mingled... people were raving about him. A thoroughly polite and professional act. Would highly recommend.

Joanne Hellel - National Geographic Channels

Event: Corporate
Location: London

Ben was great! After the nightmare he had getting to our venue, due to unfortunate train delays, he slipped into his routine with great ease and wowed the guests. I even had guests asking me where he was and waiting for 'their turn'. He was very friendly and professional, I would recommend him to anyone who wanted something different at their party. The whole booking process was easy from beginning to end and I was kept informed by both Warble and Ben all along the way. Thoroughly satisfied customer!

Lily Rogers - Game

Event: Corporate

Booking process was super easy, Matt was great with his suggestions and Ben was mind-blowing... We had so many comments about how amazing he was, no idea how he did any of it but I've bought his book, so eager to find out! Thank you so much!

Absolutely fantastic night. Very entertaining and thoroughly enjoyed by all the team, even the sceptical ones! Ben entertained us for a whole 2 hours non-stop and kept us guessing all night. I would definitely book again and recommend for any occasion.

Nathan Richardson

Event: Corporate
Location: Leicestershire

Ben arrived early and was more than happy to keep himself entertained with little attention from us, which helped us concentrate on the other goings-on on the night. He was great on stage and kept the audience engaged throughout his short performance (we only asked for 10 mins).

Elly Mitchell

Ben was a delight to work with from start to finish and his act was as great as his personality. I really appreciated him getting in contact with me before the event to confirm he was attending without me having to confirm with him.

Scott Melville

Event: Wedding
Location: South Yorkshire

Ben was fantastic, he did an amazing job at keeping the guests all entertained while things such as photos were being done. His range of effects was superb and the show type performance that he gave later in the day was mind boggling. Big thanks to Ben for his work on the day, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for any event.

Andrea Dobkin & Grant Mercer

Ben was a warm character and he was a genuinely nice person, his tricks were a delight and he had the party talking about him throughout the rest of the birthday celebrations. Everyone was blown away by Ben and he was a real asset in making the party a success. On time, accommodating and fantastic!!
