WHO IS HE?
Jason Suran is a New York based performer and lecturer. He has appeared on various networks including NBC and FOX and in venues that range from Carnegie Hall to the United States Pentagon. Often described as a "mentalist" , "mindreader", or "demon we should probably kill with fire just to be safe", his unique brand of psychological illusions have been featured around the world from Los Angeles to Dubai. A skeptic himself, Jason specializes in giving audiences a peek behind the curtain while still leaving them utterly astonished. Whether it's on stage in front of 2000 people or surrounded by guests at an intimate cocktail party, nothing brings Jason more joy then telling people how it's done ... and then fooling them anyway.
When not on stage Jason also works as a corporate consultant, helping executives improve their own powers of observation and communication in the boardroom.
WHERE DID HE COME FROM?
Originally from Skokie, Illinois, Jason first moved east to attend New York University where he studied Theatre and Film. His love of non-traditional storytelling steered him towards magic and eventually towards the more personal art of mentalism.
WHERE CAN I SEE HIM?
Currently, Jason performs as a main cast member of the critically acclaimed show Speakeasy Magick at the Mcittrick Hotel. In 2019, he was made artist-in-residence at the exclusive Norwood Club in lower manhattan where his theatrical Séance, The Other Side, has enjoyed an extended sold-out run.
He takes no responsibility for bent spoons found in any of these locations.
In addition to his work as a performer, Jason is also a highly sought after corporate lecturer. His primary seminar, Hacking Minds, is a two hour course based on his experience as both a mentalist and as a consultant within the financial sector. This course covers the basics of:
- Cold Reading
- Performance Technique
- Memory Systems
- Strategic Questioning

“Jason Suran was the hit of our Influence Underground psychology speaker series at Yale School of Management. He’s brilliant, talented, professional, funny, thought-provoking—nay, mind-bending!—and an absolute pleasure to talk with and learn from. Really interesting also to hear him connect the dots between mind-reading performances and building business relationships. A++!”
