HEADLINING STAGE ACT

JOE DIAMOND

Joe Diamond may look like a normal guy, but he has turned his fascination for the strange and mysterious into a full time career!

Here’s what Varla Ventura, the author of “Beyond Bizarre: Frightening Facts and Blood-Curdling True Tales” has to say about Joe Diamond…

“If you don’t already worship at the feet of Joe Diamond, you should really get on board. He is truly one of a kind. He is an entertainer, mind-reader, dream interpreter, radio host, author and the World Record Holder for Solving the World’s Largest Maze while blindfolded! He has even found hidden objects in graveyards. I am telling you, you need this man in your life.”

He was also the Co-Star of The Magic Cabaret, the longest running weekly magic show in Chicago, selected by Travel Channel as “One of America’s BEST Magic Shows!”

Joe Diamond even works behind the scenes on some of the magic you can see on television and viral videos!

He has appeared on WGN TV, WCIU, ABC-7, The Today Show, and even SHOWTIME!

Ask Joe Diamond to unlock your iPhone, guess your first kiss, or give you an in depth reading, and as long as you keep an open mind, it will be the the closest thing to real mind reading you’ll ever experience!
