A MINDREADING show which was a sellout at the Edinburgh Fringe will be in Salford on May 20.

Doug Segal blends comedy and mentalism to impressive effect. Rather than claiming any magic skills, he puts to good use the skills he learned while working in an advertising agency — cheating and lying.

He promises to teach the audience how to read minds, detect lies, implant subliminal suggestions and predict the National Lottery.

Doug will appear at the Lowry’s Studio Theatre. Tickets cost £10, to book visit thelowry.com or ring 0843 208 6000.
