“Get ready for an unforgettable evening,” said Toland. “The audience is the cast, their thoughts are my props and their minds will be blown!” Audiences should prepare to take part in the show, as Toland attempts to get into their thoughts and reveal what they are thinking. “There are no weekly mentalism shows in the city right now, so I’m thrilled to bring an exciting new show to Chicago audiences every week,” Toland added.

The Chicago Tribune calls Toland’s performances “Mind blowing!” and Theme Park University has recognized him for being “One of the best mentalism acts in the world!” His shows have also received numerous awards at international fringe festivals, including “Best of Fest” and “Audience Choice” at FRIGID New York, “Pick of Fringe” at the Orlando Fringe Festival and “Top Selling Show” at Chicago Fringe.
