Maurice Fogel

Brief Biography

One of the most charismatic stage Mentalists to ever tread the boards, an amazing showman he had ‘presence’ in spades. Tended towards the ‘sensational’ to generate and provoke public interest, often at great risk to himself. Bullet Catching, Russian Roulette, Cheating the Gallows all were dramatically thrilling in his hands, whether theatrically or on television.
