Barry issues €10,000 challenge to psychics

January 22nd, 2009 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under General

Former Vegas magician Keith Barry has a challenge for the psychics among us: Prove your authentic ability and win €10,000 ($13,008.20 US). He issued the challenge because he has grown tired of phonies who try to make a quick buck by taking advantage of the current financial recession, according to a report in The (Dublin) Evening Herald:

“I’m willing to give away €10,000 to anyone who proves to me, under my conditions, that they’re psychic,” he revealed. “I’ve never seen anyone take on the challenge.”

The Herald featured this great interview with him earlier this month.


  1. New blog post: Barry issues €10,000 challenge to psychics

  2. Is it just me, or has James Randi (my hero) already established a challenge much like this?

  3. seems a little (very) tame compared to Randi’s offer of a million dollars… but I guess the psychic community do hate Randi and claim he cheats in the experiments (to what degree I cannot deduce – as this would imply he believed they were real, which I can safely say he does not). Maybe a new challenge will spark some more psychics up to try.

  4. That is a very good challeng I think, because it really shows that those people are just out to get your money! They are all FAKES I tell you. Don’t be misled.

  5. We are all fakes too. The only difference is that some of us will admit that we just play people.

  6. Keith lists himself as “Former Vegas Magician” which is a joke. Keith had a 5 week run at Planet Hollywood. Due to his management contacts, he hooked up with Base Entertainment and they “Tried” his show out. The show was a financial failure. Base lost money on the show. Most of the audience was free tickets given out to try to generate a buzz. THis best trick is when he disappeared and left the Vegas audience to the pros who sell tickets and deserve to work there.

    I precisely wished to thank you very much yet again. I do not know the things that I would’ve achieved in the absence of those pointers shown by you regarding such a industry. It seemed to be an absolute fearsome matter in my view, but finding out your professional approach you solved the issue forced me to jump over fulfillment. I’m happier for the advice and in addition have high hopes you realize what a great job you’re providing training people with the aid of your websites. I am sure you’ve never got to know all of us.

    Keith is an exception using hypothallamus technique. One among billions can do this.apart from practice he needs awakning of energy nd redirecting around 360.
