WHO IS HE?
Jason Suran is a New York based performer whose psychological illusions have been featured on networks such as NBC and FOX, and in venues that range from Carnegie Hall to the United States Pentagon. Often described as a "mentalist", "mind-reader" or "demon we should kill with fire just to be safe" Jason has earned widespread acclaim for his groundbreaking immersive performances. In addition to a two year extended run at the McKittrick Hotel (home of Sleep No More) Jason currently serves as artist-in-residence at the Norwood Club in Chelsea performing experimental mysteries for those adventurous enough to attend. He takes no responsibility for bent silverware found at any of these locations.
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?`

“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++!”
