Extraordinist Craig Karges is known to millions of television viewers for his entertaining demonstrations of extraordinary phenomena as seen on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Larry King Live, CNN Headline News, CNBC, E! Entertainment Television, Lifetime Television and The Nashville Network.
Craig's interest in the mysteries of the mind can be traced back to his relationship with his great-uncle (a vaudeville-era stage medium turned spiritualist). At the age of fourteen, Craig began working with his uncle. Upon his uncle's death (one year later), the fifteen-year old Karges inherited his uncle's vast library of books and manuscripts on magic, mentalism, spiritualism, psychology and parapsychology. Delving into his uncle's extensive legacy, Karges discovered many secrets of what is now called extraordinary phenomena.
Unfortunately, his great-uncle passed away before completing all of his research. This left the young Karges with many unanswered questions and many mysteries to explore. Craig has spent the last quarter of a century doing just that.
Craig Karges first became popular touring college campuses. He was named "Entertainer of the Year" four times by the National Association for Campus Activities and twice by Campus Activities Today magazine. He also was named the most popular variety entertainer on the college circuit for ten consecutive years, as well as being named best male performer and best performing arts attraction.
Even Karges's peers find his work fascinating. He was named the top performer in his field worldwide by the International Psychic Entertainers Association. The National Speakers Association (NSA) honored him with the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, a recognition bestowed on less than 10 percent of NSA's four thousand plus members.
Craig Karges says that he does not possess supernatural powers, nor does he claim to perform as a psychic or a magician. While he acknowledges that he is an entertainer, and showmanship plays a role in what he does, he has a standing offer of $100,000, payable to charity, if anyone can prove he uses stooges or confederates in his demonstrations.
Karges currently spends his time traveling the world as both an entertainer and a speaker appearing at theaters, festivals, showrooms, and performing arts centers, as well as universities and corporate events.
As an entertainer, his stage show, "Experience the Extraordinary," is a fantastic blend of mystery, humor, psychology and intuition using total audience participation. Craig dazzles the mind as he challenges his audiences to question what is real and what is unreal.
He explores the unexplained, the unknown and the unbelievable—all seemingly by the power of the mind. Unspoken thoughts are revealed; predictions are made and verified; matter passes through matter; objects move through the air. As one reviewer put it, "It's like The Twilight Zone live on stage. But, it's not frightening; it's fun."
There is a surreal quality to his performance. You will believe it when you see it, but you may not believe what you saw. It is a touch of mystery in a world dominated by technology. And when the curtain falls, you may not be certain whether you were under the spell of an enchanting illusion or have witnessed an extraordinary reality.
As a speaker and workshop presenter, Karges switches his focus from entertainment to empowerment in a highly interactive experience that awakens you to the possibility of reaching your full potential. Participants learn memory techniques; their intuition is tested and they are taught proven techniques of how to tap into their unconscious minds to enhance their creativity, intuition and decision making processes.
Nothing is impossible in the uncanny world of Craig Karges. No smoke; no mirrors—just today's mysteries that may well become tomorrow's certainties. So get ready to not only Ignite Your Intuition but also to "Experience the Extraordinary" with Craig Karges.
