What is a mentalist?

A standard 8.5′ x 11′ works perfectly. The height is up to you, however bare in mind that the higher it is the better people can see. Two small tables. The two tables should be table cloth draped. Position the tables on the left and right rear of the stage.
One Lavaliere (Clip on) wireless microphone. Scott Xavier uses both hands in his performance so this is a must! A second hand held mcrophone will be required for the participants to use on stage, so a microphone stand will also be needed. Remember a performer is only as good as his equipment, so an exceptional sound system and an engineer would be preferable to ensure your show is 200%.
House lights. The room must be lit enough that any participant canbe able to read a book or write a note from their table! If the professional option is available: a stage wash, spotlighting the center of the stage, and a well lit room would be perfect. Also a lighting hand can be ready to follow Xavier with the spotlight.
Requirements Although not essential, an over head video projector (a large screen tv will also work) with HDMI inputs is recommended to ensure the best possible show. With addition of this projector, it helps to have someone with a standard knowledge of it’s use on hand to operate it.
For banquets and dinner style entertainment, after desert tme is the ideal time for the performance.
