What will he teach?
A Spirited Opener- The startling visible vanish of a silk followed immediately by the production of a full shotglass. This is a 1-2 punch that, in under 90 seconds, grabs the complete focus of an audience while also setting the atmosphere of fun for everything that follows.
The Chop Cup- Nathan’s stand-up chop cup routine that incorporates a Michael Kaminskas touch (with permission) in a new way to dramatically increase the impact of the final loads.
Bare-Handed- Any card called for is caught out of mid-air. The spectacle of a card sword without the cost, and Nathan’s new technique for controlling a named card from a memorized deck has many applications for both close-up and stand up (for non-memdeck users, this revelation is also powerful with a chosen card).

“Every generation needs someone to come along and reinvent mentalism for contemporary audiences, bringing the art up to date and re-imagining how it can be presented and performed. That’s what Timothy Krass is doing, and he does it superbly well. He’s young, cool, fun, creative and charismatic, and has already secured his place among the greats. Watch and learn.” -Ian Rowland
“Timothy Krass is one of the most charming performers you’ll ever meet, and one of the most thoughtful too. His performances are some of the most cleverly thought-out, theatrical demonstrations of mentalism I’ve seen. In an industry bloated by creators who have no real understanding of what is needed to perform in the real world, Timothy cuts through with his incredibly practical material that has been created with one thing in mind: knocking the socks off of real audiences – and isn’t that what we all want?!” -Ken Dyne

“Drew is a consummate pro in all respects – meticulous about every aspect of his show, careful to establish and nurture the who, the why, and the how in a way that doesn’t simply deliver entertaining mentalism only, but allows you to experience true theater.” – Atlas Brookings
“I’ve only recently made the acquaintance of Drew, but I would already rate him as one of my favourite mentalism thinkers and creators. We share so much in common about our views of what performance mentalism should be that it’s almost as if our minds are really linked! I love ALL of his ideas and routines. Every single effect is a worker, he absolutely understands how to get the most entertainment and audience interaction out of every routine.” – Marc Paul
“Drew has definitely been the best kept secret in mentalism so far but this is about to change. In a time when everyone is looking for the next best thing and ‘cutting edge’ methods that sometimes have questionable results, Drew offers a combination of classic methods that have stood the test of time combined with clever subtleties to produce stunning and entertaining routines. Great material from a creator who is not only a brilliant thinker but an amazing performer as well.” – Manos
“I have shared ideas back and forth with Drew over the last few years and he really is a very clever thinker. Drew has a wonderful economy in his creation style and is able to squeeze a lot of bang out of very little effort from the performer. This is material designed for a working performer and so does not require mental gymnastics while under pressure.” – Mark Chandaue
