This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with Colin Cloud, known as a “Real Life Sherlock Holmes,” starring with Shim Lim in “LIMITLESS” at The Mirage (Mondays and Thursdays through Sundays at 7:30PM). In this episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Colin talks about why he developed an interest in Sherlock Holmes at an early age; how he realized that stand-up comedians are the real Sherlock Holmes; why he creates the illusion that he can read someone’s mind; his first mentors, who were comedians more than magicians; why his show is fast and high energy; his need to be challenged; and why he won’t enter the World Series of Poker!
Colin Cloud’s unique mentalism skills have led to him selling out theaters at the Edinburgh Festival, on London’s West End, Broadway and now the Las Vegas Strip – starring in LIMITLESS at the Mirage Las Vegas.
He has spent more than twenty years in the industry, wowing those from royalty to celebrities (including the judges and audience on Season 12 of “America’s Got Talent”).
Colin is originally from Edinburg, Scotland, where he studied forensic investigation, specifically criminal profiling, which then led to his success in showcasing his mentalist techniques to fans all around the world.
