Edinburgh Festival Review
Words said with confidence as Colin McLeod took a captivated audience through his spectacular show, ‘It’s All in the Mind’ at the Camera Obscura tonight. With a venue entirely fitting for this particular spectacle, the audience recoiled a little as Colin’s use of the word ‘mentalist’ has negative associations with those of us not particularly versed in the workings of the human mind.
Edinburgh Spotlight Review *****
Colin McLeod is a rising star in the mind reading world and he has achieved so much for someone the tender age of 23. Hailed as the new Derren Brown, Colin has travelled the world performing his show, but the Edinburgh International Magic Festival sees him return to Edinburgh, giving people a rare opportunity to experience his skills, live.
Edinburgh Spotlight Review *****
Scots entertainer Colin McLeod is not short of admirers. He has been touted as the next Derren Brown -- and was described by mind reader and spoon-bender Uri Geller as “one of the greatest thought readers of all time”. But the 23-year-old says he’s more like Sherlock Holmes.
