Joe Diamond may look like a normal guy, but he has turned his fascination for the strange and mysterious into a full time career! He can read your mind. REALLY. It's not a joke. He can tell you the name of a friend you are thinking of. He can describe and interpret your dreams with uncanny accuracy. He can even read the mind of a friend you have called on your cell phone!
In 2010, Joe Diamond became a World Record Holder for Solving the World's Largest Maze while BLINDFOLDED! Since then, he has also found hidden objects in graveyards, and even driven a car blindfolded!
He writes, directs, and stars in his own YouTube series, and even hosts a radio show/podcast where he talks to everyone from authors, to magicians, to psychics, to sword swallowers!
He is the Co-Star of The Magic Cabaret in Chicago, selected by Travel Channel as “One of America’s BEST Magic Shows!”
