An Interview with Alex Crow

1 January 2012

Which was your favourite event and why?

Last year I was flown to Prague to perform after dinner for a large conference for a well-known computer company. There were 800 people in the audience of all nationalities and 30% were Russian who couldn’t speak any English. Yet despite this the show went down really well because I had anticipated the potential problems and found a way to circumvent them.

How did working in the corporate sector start?

I think probably someone saw me at a private party and asked me to perform for their company function and from there (just performing walkabout mindreading) I went on to develop my stage show and now that is predominately what I do.

If you could perform at any event, past or future, what would it be?

I would like to perform at my 100th birthday party!

Which artist do you most admire?

Derren Brown.

How do you like to be introduced?

I have my own introduction on video or CD or sometimes a speaker will take something from my website, typically: “Alex Crow served for 15yrs in the Metropolitan Police in London and then left to pursue his wild dreams of performing for a living. After years of studying body language, NLP, Psychology and with a healthy dose of intuition and many other techniques, Alex is now regarded as one of the top mind readers in the UK”.

Do you have any funny/embarrassing anecdotes you care to share?

Last Christmas, after an event, I was approached by five girls who had been in the audience and told that two of them were pregnant and could I determine the sex of the unborn babies. I approached one very obviously pregnant lady, gently placed my hand on her belly and confidently stated that it would be a boy I then went to the woman next to her and went to do the same when she indignantly said that it wasn’t her that was pregnant, she was just a bit overweight!

Do you have any riders or special requirements?

White lilies to be placed in my dressing room, a bowl full of smarties (no blue ones), Perrier mineral water, red cushions on the chairs and sandalwood incense - just kidding! No riders or special requirements.

Your favourite film?

Favourite book?

Favourite holiday destination?

Egypt - cruising on the Nile.

What’s your tipple?

Red Wine.

Country or townie?

A bit of both!
