Max Major is a world-renowned mentalist living in Las Vegas. His performances, which combine magic, mentalism and hypnosis, are featured at corporate events across the country. In addition to his studies as a magician, Major relies heavily on his skills at reading body language, which he has honed over the course of 2,000 live shows. His clients include Facebook, Microsoft, Deloitte, CSX, Costco, Lockheed Martin, Booz Allen and a command performance at the residence of Redskins owner Dan Snyder.
In the last five years, he has been called before two Department of Defense agencies to demonstrate his innovative techniques in hypnosis, body language and influence.
In 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, he was named D.C.'s Best Performance Arist by the Washington City Paper. In 2015, he bowed out of the race to give someone else a chance and focus on the category that really matters: Best Girls Night Out.
