The votes are in.,

Last week, with a pair of tickets to see Keith Barry LIVE on offer, we asked you to name your most mentalist experience.

Brainhacker Keith will perform a live Virtual Valentine’s Show on Sunday, February 14.

After much debate, ‘Mr Sinister’ was chosen for recounting the following epic mind-bending incident:

‘Saw Derren Brown in the Olympia once. For the interval, he put a giant fishbowl on the stage and asked everyone to take a pen and paper from the ushers and to write a question down. Then put your first name and row that you’re sitting in on the outside, and he’d pull them out and be able to guess the question and then guess the answer as well.

Some of the questions were out there…first guy up asked what his mother’s name was…turns out it was Dympna. Good old DB had a great time trying to get his head around that.

I was pulled out third, and a different usher handed me a mic. He guessed correctly that my question was about sport…”In what year were Shelbourne FC formed?”…1895, as it happens, is the correct answer.

Anyway, he pulls out “David….in row 35″….A shout goes up and David gets a mic.

“So, David, I’m guessing you’re here with your Mrs?”

“yes, me and the girlfriend”

And how long has she been pregnant?”

Everyone, including David, gasps!

“um…eh, well…we’re not sure cos we haven’t told anyone yet”

“Can I speak with Mrs David?”

*mic is handed over*

“Hiya, this is David’s bird”

“Twins, am I right?”

“I bleeedin’ hope not, or I’ll f____in’ run amok”

*loads of laughter*

“Anyway, moving swiftly on, I can tell that you, David, have a pet dog…named Tyson?”

“Eh, no!?”

A shout goes up from the other end of the row:

You’ve got the wrong David!”

David number 2 gets handed a mic

“So, real David, are you here with your missus?”

“Yeah, and she’s pregnant with twins and I have a dog called Tyson”

“Well, David, would you prefer boys, girls or one of each?”

“Deffo, boys”

“Hmm, well I better not say too much, then, lets hear it for Sissy Mickey, I mean David number 2”

*clap clap clap clap clap*

I’d love to have spoken with one of the other names pulled out of the hat, to try and see if it was possible to figure out how he did all of it. I never let on to anyone, even my brother who sat beside me in the audience, what the question was.’

Thanks all.

Virtual Valentine’s Show (Keith Barry)


‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on NBC.

Mentalist Keith Barry’s first virtual slot on US Telly from a studio located in his back garden in County Kildare – his fifth appearance on the show – chills host Ellen.

Keith says:

“I think I basically wore the production team down, I spent a fortune on calls to the office. In these challenging times for the entertainment industry you have to try everything! Persistence worked and I was thrilled to be asked back on the show”.

Thanks Ian Collins

Brain Hacker Keith [Barry] says he was refused his scheduled interview with new signing Neil Prendeville because he had just appeared on rival station Cork’s 96FM chatting with PJ. Keith got told, whilst waiting in reception that “Neil doesn’t want to interview him”. He says he thought it was a wind-up at first, and said the producer seemed ‘quite dumbfounded’ when delivering the news.
