Erik Dobell

Take a look at Eric Dobell… it’s a sure bet that he’s watching you. Dobell is a magician and mentalist. That’s right: He knows what you’re thinking, sometimes before you do. “You kind of learn to read people, body language and things like that,” he says. “There are a lot of different ways of doing what I do. I use my skills as a magician to give the illusion of mind reading. Some of it is observation. Some of it is just trickery.” Dobell will be performing at Greensboro’s Festival of Lights on Dec. 5 as a strolling magician. “Street magic,” he says. “Ooooh.” Check out his website at www.ericdobell.com, but don’t try to put one past him — he knows when you’re lying. “The really bad liars don’t look at you,” he says. “When I’m lying, I look you right in the eyes.”
