The Amazing Kreskin, the mentalist who was a TV fixture during the 1970s, has hired 5W Public Relations.
Born George Joseph Kresge, the 77-year-old Kreslin appeared on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson more than 60 times from 1970 to 1980.
He’s also appeared with Regis Philbin, David Letterman, Howard Stern, Jimmy Fallon and Larry King.
Kreskin announced the 5W hire on his website, calling Ronn Torossian’s firm a “communications partner who can oversee every capacity when it comes to media interaction and outreach.”
He performs about 200 shows a year, and has written 19 books about mind power and career.
The December 7 Washington Post gave Kreskin good ink in a piece that covered his offer to fix the “fiscal cliff.”
All it would take is one hour with President Obama, Speaker John Boehner or their deputies, Kreskin told the Post’s Lori Montgomery.
Via mental suggestion and conditioning, Kreskin said he "could them together to their unconscious level, and they will start to think in terms of compromising."
He added: "I could bring out of them the mind-set to say, ‘Hell. Jesus. We’ve got to start to think together and to give and take.’"
