Born in the heyday of Dunninger and Dr. Franz Polgar, the leading hypnotists and mentalists of the first half of the 20th Century, Dr. Amazing was fortunate to later become the friend to and physician for Dr. Polgar [who could locate a dollar bill hidden in the city of New York]. Dr. Polgar inspired Dr. Amazing to become his successor as the Dean of American hypnotists/mentalists.
A true Renaissance man, Dr. Amazing went on the stage just after entering law practice. While in college his brilliance and mental capacity was demonstrated when he was inducted into four honorary societies, including the senior men's honorary at Ohio State University. This capped a year in which he was the Big Ten debate champion and business manager of a college magazine.
While teaching hypnosis to doctors, he decided to switch careers and he entered medical school at the University of Miami, Florida. During his freshman year, he was invited by the medical school to teach hypnosis. From his course on hypnosis, he wrote his first book, Hypnosis Induction Technics, Charles C Thomas Co., publisher. It now is in its fifth printing.
Although Dr. Amazing became a prominent medical doctor, he has continued to perform hypnosis shows and to teach memory improvement. A member of the American Guild of Variety Artists (AGVA) and the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), he is equally at home on the stage, behind a lectern and in front of a television camera. Finding the time, he also has written three novels and numerous screenplays.
In February and March, 2000, Dr. Amazing was seen as Dr. Frankenstein in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) commercial for “Back Breakin’ Crusher” action figures on the wrestling shows on USA Cable Network on Monday nights and Saturday mornings and on the UPN Television Network on Thursday nights.
In March, 2000 he was on 92.3 The Beat’s Ed Lover and Doctor Dre’ Morning Show.
For the past two years, Dr. Amazing has been appearing daily on cable stations such as MTV, VH1 and Much Music (Canada) as Kryptoman, the superhero in the rock music video “Kryptonite” by the band 3 Doors Down. The song was nominated for a Grammy. His costume is now enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, Ohio.
In October, 2001 WEA London released a techno/music video featuring Dr. Amazing conducting hypnotized subjects dancing to the Armand Van Helden song “Why Can’t You Free Some Time.” The video has been playing all over Europe on MTV-Europe.
Dr. Amazing has hypnotized guests on Fox Network’s “Blind Date” show. He also appeared as the hypnotist on MTV’s “Dismissed” show. In 2003 he hypnotized Anna Nicole Smith on E! Entertainment’s Anna Nicole Show.
Presently Dr. Amazing is appearing on a MAACO commercial with Bert Reynolds.
On the stage and during memory improvement seminars, Dr. Amazing has performed memory acts which no one else in the world can do. These demonstrations have induced thousands to utilize the memory principles he teaches to improve themselves socially and economically.
A natural student, Dr. Amazing has researched all the published works on memory improvement. He not only has improved on all the known systems, but during his more than 30 years of teaching and performing, he has designed new and very effective memory systems - all of which are set forth in his newly-written book, Master Your Memory with Dr. Amazing - How Not to Forget.
Following a memory demonstration, Softaware, Inc. posted on their website, "the demonstration that followed did not disappoint. Leading off with his "Knightly Moves," Dr. Amazing wove an intricate pattern on the number board that was extraordinary to watch. Then lots of spontaneous memorization of names and numbers were followed by the world-famous completion of a Magic Square where all columns including diagonals add up to 69."
With his stage show hypnosis and memory talents, Dr. Amazing has been an attraction on radio and television talk shows such as on WHMI-FM Howell, Michigan, WCUB-Radio Manitowoc, Wisconsin, KKBT-AM Los Angeles, and on Women of Prominence with Media One Cable in Los Angeles.
"We had an absolutely fabulous time," said members of the Microsoft Corporation, after Dr. Amazing entertained at their conference. "Dr. Amazing was both great and a pleasure to work with at the Microsoft GeekFest in Dallas. We have nothing but hearty recommendations to anyone interested in having him on their television or radio programs."
