Roderick Russell Performs at Temple Isreal for one Fathers Day Show

 

Want to give Dad a great Father’s Day 2017? Come to Temple Israel for a barbecue and a show on an afternoon that the whole family will enjoy! 

Guinness World Record sword swallower, mentalist and Ripley’s Believe It or Not star Roderick Russell will visit Alameda for one show only on June 18.

If unusual and one-of-a-kind entertainment is your thing, you’ll definitely want to check this out! National Public Radio says that it’s “not only the strangest event of the month, but probably the weirdest of the rest of the year.” A bold, risky show - but what else would you expect from a sword swallower?

Though he does not claim to be psychic or possess any supernatural ability, Roderick Russell will nevertheless read your mind and reveal your thoughts in such startling detail that you’ll swear there’s no other explanation!  

And don’t worry! Only willing volunteers are used.  Though after seeing how he does it, don’t be surprised if you want to take part!

Through the use of applied psychology, misdirection and a healthy dose of good old-fashioned manipulation, Roderick Russell takes the traditional skills of the stage psychic to all new, never-before-seen heights. Though he’ll tell you precisely how he’s doing it through skill and the aid of behavioral science, you’ll gasp in awe at the remarkable nature of the human mind and the limitless potential that it possesses. Using cold reading, lie detection, suggestion and persuasion, he’ll show you precisely how public your “private” thoughts really are – at least to someone who is paying attention.

Not only does Roderick Russell playfully meddle in your mind, he even turns the tables on himself to show you precisely what’s possible, when you question the possible. 

And as one of only 50 full-time professional sword swallowers in the world, he’ll demonstrate this deadly art with wit, charm and grace. The holy grail of mind-over-body stunts, sword swallowing is an ancient demonstration of the power of the mind and Roderick brings it into the 21st century for discerning audiences to witness. A feat unlike any other, and a rare, visceral treat in a world that has been anesthetized by special effects.

Fun, witty, captwwivating and amazing, Roderick Russell gets into your head, rummages around and puts it all onstage(only willing volunteers are used, and nothing of a sensitive nature will be revealed.) for an evening of exceptional entertainment.
