Close up magic and mind reading, gourmet food, and cigars – all going to save the lives of animals through Animal Friends!

Seth will provide private readings for those who desire additional insight to deep questions of their journey along life’s river of choices (for an additional donation to Animal Friends).

In partnership with Natalie Shugars, Smokin’ Brews, and Animal Friends, you’ll experience Seth Neustein’s uplifting and empowering entertainment normally reserved only for hospitality suites and celebrity VIP green rooms around the globe.

My New Years Resolution was to fully update my website, especially with a list of upcoming appearances. Primarily, I perform at private events for individuals, corporations, conferences, associations, hospitality suites, country clubs, etc.  When I perform a rare public show, it’s generally for a great cause and I wanted to make sure to help these wonderful charities more by putting them on my website in order to direct more traffic to them. 

Plus, it’s a New Year’s Resolution – which means that I made myself a promise – and I honor my commitments. 

There’s a reason they call me the “honest magician”.

A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself and for others.” – Fyodor Doestoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Seth Neustein is a mentalist and magician based in Pittsburgh, PA and available worldwide.
