LVRJ columnist Mike Weatherford recently attended both of the mentalism shows currently playing on the Vegas strip, "The Mentalist" with Gerry McCambridge and "Mental" with Luke Jermay.  Weatherford's opinion?

But TV Sherlock Patrick Jane (played by Simon Baker) is a reformed phony psychic who figures out mysteries. Two Las Vegas mentalists hope you can't.

And if one day their secrets creep into the public domain? Then they're basically toast. That's the thing about mentalists: It's the one niche of magic that's still genuinely baffling and all about fooling you. But if that ever ceases to be the case, there isn't a lot of entertainment value beyond the mystery.
