Timon Krause's brief CV:
Mentalist Timon Krause reaches the finals of Dutch talent
show "Holland's Got Talent!"
Timon Krause is the first magician in 5 years to hit the finals
of the Dutch talent show "Holland's Got Talent".
The half-Dutch half-German mentalist succeeded in convincing
the 4 judges of his mindreading talent during the auditions
and the semi-finals on June 9th. This makes him the second
magician ever to make it to the finals of the show, which
will be broadcasted live in the 23rd of June.
"Holland's Got Talent" is the Dutch equivalent
to shows such as "Britain's Got Talent" and "America's
Got Talent". The concept is the same: the jury, including
singer Angela Groothuizen, actress Chantal Janzen, singer
Gordon and choreographer Dan Karaty, judge several talented
acts. During the live-finals the viewers may call and vote
for their favorite act.
Timon Krause convinced the jury during the castings with one
of his signature acts: guessing a PIN code. "You're interesting
and you're charismatic while you do it, and you're almost
a little intimidating", Karaty commented.
For the semi-finals Krause opened with a seemingly simple
performance: Chantal Janzen was asked to hide a coin in one
of her hands, a choice which Timon was going to influence.
With his own mindreading technique, he succeeded flawlessly
several times in a row. To top it off, Krause had the judges
choose several spectators, whom he influenced to think of
a word he had predicted - securing him a place in the finals!
This makes Timon Krause the first magic act in 5 years (and
only the second magician ever) to get to the finals of the
To the young mentalist, magic is the passion of his life.
Starting at the age of 12 he has been studying the art of
reading minds and hypnosis. In 2016 he was awarded the
title of "Best European Mentalist" (Nostradamus
Award) and the audience award "Prix Cagliostro".
He is the youngest recipient of both titles ever!
Currently Timon Krause is working on his first book for the
general public. At the age of 16 he already successfully published
his first book, which however was directed and colleagues
and fellow performers. With Henning Neidhardt (Piano) and
Kevin Wolf (Drums) he currently plays his theater show "MINDGAMES"
in Germany and the Netherlands. A New Zealand tour is being
planned for the end of 2017.
Timon Krause's performances at "Holland's Got Talent"
were broadcasted on the 28th of April and the 9th of June.
They are available to watch on YouTube by now. The finals
will be broadcasted live on the 23rd of June.

lecture is called "Way of the Trickster"
and will be centred around Mentalism and Mental Magic.
Depending on where the attendees want to take it, I'm happy
to venture into any of the following themes alongside the
- philosophy of magic
- NLP & psychology for entertainers
- Scriptwriting & Show building
- character building
- preshow techniques
- minimalistic approach to performance
- and other "behind the scenes" themes
Most of the above areas are touched upon in the lecture already.
The lecture aims to give a mix of my working repertoire mentalism,
original and creative mental magic and my theory and vision
behind it. There's something for the do-ers, the thinkers,
beginners and advanced magicians.
