My name is Conor Breen and I am a Mentalist and Magician. I have been performing magic and mentalism for over 15 years, and have been extremely active in more recent years.
I am also an active secondary school teacher in Ireland, and I currently teach English and Religious Education at all levels. As unusual as that combination may seem, you would be surprised how many times I have to work my magic in the classroom as well.
From a psychological point of view, I use various techniques and principles from performing in magic and mentalism throughout the years for when I am teaching. This helps to get the best of my students and helps influence them psychologically, through suggestion, and through intuition. Don’t get me wrong, with both professions comes their difficulties, but when your students find out that their teacher can “read minds”, let’s just say the dynamic in the classroom changes ever so slightly!
Going back all those years to the very beginning, I became fascinated with magic when I was about 14 years old. I remember watching TV late on a Friday night and seeing Uri Geller the Israeli Mentalist, bending spoons and metal objects with his mind. This fascinated me, along with everyone watching. I had never seen anything like this before, and I had to learn it and find out how it was done. It became an obsession. This brought me on the journey I am still on today all these years later, and now I have mastered the ability to bend metal and many other objects with just my mind.
For a lot of people, they will know me from social media platforms, such as Tiktok and Instagram. I regularly post magic content on a daily basis and have thousands of followers that watch me live streaming online on Tiktok every night. This is where I spend a lot of the evenings engaging and getting to know my followers and also get to hack into their minds virtually for a couple of minutes.
If you haven’t guessed it already, I absolutely love what I do, and my job as a magician and mentalist isn’t really a job, let’s be honest! It’s something unique and unforgettable that I get to show to the world, and be able to make people laugh, smile, or even cry at the flick of a switch! I look forward to hearing from you, and can’t wait to work with you!
