As the world’s leading TV hypnotist, mentalist and brain hacker, Keith Barry has been blazing a trail
across the globe for many years. His mind-blowing skills have been showcased in over forty international
television shows, including his most recent series, You’re Back in the Room. The first hypnotism format
on TV in the UK and Australia for several years, this show garnered huge audiences and proved to be a
big prime-time hit.
As well as his own hugely successful US TV series, Deception with Keith Barry, Keith has appeared many
times on some of the most prestigious US shows such as The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Jimmy Kimmel
Show and The Conan O’Brien Show. He has also brain-hacked many celebrities including Woody
Harrelson, Bono, Nicole Scherzinger, Morgan Freeman and many more. One of Keith’s recent projects
saw him working as chief mentalist and hypnotist consultant for the blockbuster movie, Now You See
Me. Shot in New Orleans and Paris, it starred Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman, Jesse Eisenberg, Mark
Ruffalo and Michael Caine and grossed over $360M at the box office. His huge success in working
extensively with Woody Harrelson, who plays a mentalist, ensured he was hired as chief magic and
mentalist consultant for the Sequel, Now You See Me – The Second Act. He worked on this for almost a
year, through its filming in London and Macau.
Keith has written, produced and performed many of his own stage shows in the last ten years and has
sold out venues in the US, Australia, Canada, Spain, South Africa, the UK and of course his native Ireland.
He has also recently presented his keynote speech ‘Mind Magic’ at places such as The Cannes Lions
Festival of Creativity, The Pendulum Summit and The Dublin Tech Summit. Keith’s TED Talk has been in
the top twenty-five TED Talks since 2008 and it currently boasts over twenty-five million views.
