John Pullum Speaker Biography

With his trademark shaved head and hilarious sense of humor, John Pullum has entertained audiences across the globe with his unbelievable mind reading abilities. Actor, comedian, motivational speaker and all-around nice guy, John takes the mysterious and makes it hilarious.

Drawing from a lifetime of experience, John makes each performance & seminar unique by interacting with the thoughts of audience members. Although his comedy show defies easy labeling, it's been described by the press as a psychic hotline, meets a comedy club, meets the X-Files, all in one show!

Born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, John started performing at local events while still in his teens. Earning a reputation for his baffling stunts and incredible comedic timing, he quickly became a favorite at corporate events and private parties. His educational background includes hypnosis, television and radio broadcasting, improv comedy, theater and marketing. John has combined all his educational training and performance into his motivational, educational seminars.

If John's face looks familiar it's probably because you've seen him on TV once or twice. He has appeared on several international television shows, in feature films with the likes of Danny DeVito and Jack Nicholson, and was recently featured on the Discovery Channel's shows More Than Human (appeared on 14 episodes!), Unsolved History and More Science of Magic as their hypnosis / mind reading expert.

Whether he's in front of a college, corporate, or private audience, John Pullum will amaze, amuse and get your audience motivated.  

John Pullum - America's Funniest Mind Reader

John’s quick wit and amazing mind reading combine for a hilarious show. Will you be one of the lucky ones that has their mind read by John? You’ll be totally amazed with his 100% clean, audience participation, comedy mind reading show.

John somehow taps into his audience’s thoughts like a live psychic hotline only with hilarious results and without the phone charges. He doesn’t claim to have supernatural powers. John doesn’t like to call himself "psychic" because he feels he’s just learned to tap into a part of his mind that we all have. He feels everyone has the ability to tap into their subconscious minds and do some amazing things if they just knew how to (and demonstrates this with audience members during the show). He makes his show fun for the audience and treats everyone with respect. John's presentations take place not only on stage, but throughout the entire audience as well. John was the mind reading / hypnosis expert for the Discovery Channel's "Unsolved History". John also had his amazing mind put to the test on "More Than Human", a Discovery Channel series which he also hosted. This is the perfect show for a company party, meeting, convention, association event or V.I.P. private party.

One client said it best … "One moment you had us laughing uncontrollably, and then you came up with that woman’s, mother’s maiden name and I saw people fall off their chairs." - Kathy DiCenzo – MPAA

She hired John 3 times already! (2 association events and 1 corporate holiday party)

100% clean, 100% hilarious, 100% amazing!


Success is all in your head!

John Pullum has been interested in the human mind since a young child. Why do some people succeed and others don’t? Why are some people motivated while others aren’t? John has combined segments of his mind reading show and added proven facts and demonstrations on success and how to use your mind’s unseen power to succeed.

John’s motivational message is carefully woven into his presentations. Your guests will laugh, have fun, be amazed and learn all at the same time. Don’t hire a speaker that will bore them to death, hire John Pullum to keep them entertained while educating and motivating them. People seem to learn better while having a fun time. John’s presentations are almost a "sneak up" approach to education. The audience is learning as they are laughing, participating and having a GREAT time. They almost don’t realize they are learning because they are having so much fun in the process.

Using his background in hypnosis as a guide, John’s motivation gets into their subconscious. This helps the message and motivation stay with your guests. John will motivate your employees to tap into the 90% of their minds they say we don’t use. John was the mind reading / hypnosis expert for the Discovery Channel's "Unsolved History". John also had his amazing mind put to the test on "More Than Human", a Discovery Channel series which he also hosted.

"John was able to provide everything we were looking for and so much more!John arrived at our event early so I was able to get him set up quickly and easily and then get back to enjoying the party.His show was nothing short of amazing. He managed to get the entire group to participate and made us laugh harder than we laughed in a very long time. He absolutely lifted our spirits and it was wonderful to forget about our problems for a while.John did a phenomenal job and I am so grateful for the good time he gave us. I would highly recommend him." - Margarita Williams - Acct Services Supervisor - Reebok International Ltd.

This is the perfect presentation for a company party, meeting, convention, association event or V.I.P. private party.
