Look at your hands. Your nails. The heels of your shoes. What do you see?
Nothing? Imagine someone who could look at those details and see everything. Everything.

Only, you don’t have to imagine. Because this is precisely what Colin Cloud does.

He’ll know what you’ve had for lunch, where you’ve been that day, what you do for a living, the car you drive, even your PIN code. He’ll read you like a book. He’s already sure you’re quite the page turner. He left ITV’s Jonathan Ross speechless (surely a first!). Ant and Dec screamed in disbelief! The media have described him as the real-life Sherlock and witnesses don’t say much as they’re usually left speechless.

When the other boys were out playing football and hiding in the woods, Colin was predicting the score and finding their hiding places with almost psychic accuracy. He’s the Holmes of entertainment, if Holmes had a flair for comedy. He’s the deductionist of hypnotism, the Great Detective of live events.

Colin Cloud is the best and maybe even the wisest man you’ve ever known. Cloud has performed for professional sceptics like Penn and Teller. He has wowed the hard-to-please Simon Cowell. He has certainly left people convinced that he does indeed have mystical skills of reading minds and influencing outcomes. Performer, after dinner keynote speaker, consultant, coach, comedian: the entertaining and endearing Colin Cloud is THE forensic mind reader and you know you want to see him.

Cloud has the wit of a comedian, the intensity of a hypnotist and the allure of Sherlock Holmes himself. He’s become known the world over as a man who can reveal your deepest, darkest secrets. He continues to be a hugely popular guest on ITV’s This Morning (his revelation of Holly Willoughby’s embarrassing childhood memory of her interaction with a trampoline went viral). He has since caused amazement and more than a few red faces on Radio and TV Broadcasts around the world. Colin also worked with co-creator and writer Mark Gatiss on the online presence for the Sherlock Christmas Special for BBC1
