Craig Karges is truly extraordinary!  The “extraordinist” is an award-winning entertainer, a nationally recognized speaker and an author.  Karges has made over five thousand appearances in twenty-two countries on four continents and in all fifty states.

Karges combines the art of magic with the science of psychology and the power of intuition to create the impression that nothing is impossible.  Tables float, minds are read, metal bends and your imagination is challenged because you won’t believe your eyes!  Dennis Miller, comedian and media personality, put it this way after seeing Karges perform, “This weirds me out!”

Karges has made over forty national television appearances.  You’ve seen him on The Tonight Show as well as CNN, Fox News Channel, CNBC, E! Entertainment Television, Lifetime Television, Wisdom Television and even SOAPnet!. The sheer number and diversity of Karges’ television appearances is indicative of his widespread popularity.

Performance, the international touring talent weekly, named  Karges’ touring show, “Experience the Extraordinary” as one of the top five variety/family shows in North America. Performance Magazine called the extraordinist’s performance “The next era in mystery entertainment.”  Additionally, American Entertainment Magazine named Karges one of the top five variety entertainers on the corporate circuit.

Karges first became popular touring college campuses.  He was named Entertainer of the Year six times by the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA). NACA’s campus membership also voted Karges as Variety Entertainer of the Year for twelve consecutive years.  The independent Campus Activities Magazine named Karges Entertainer of the Year on four occasions.  In addition to Entertainer of the Year, the magazine also named Karges Best Performing Arts Attraction, Best Male Performer, Best Solo Act and Best Novelty Act.  The extraordinist was the fifth inductee into the National Campus Entertainment Hall of Fame.

Even Karges’ peers find his work fascinating.  He was named the top performer in his field worldwide by the international Psychic Entertainers Association.  The National Speakers Association (NSA) honored him with the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation and the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame Award.

Karges’ corporate client list ranges from McDonalds to AT&T and from NASA to the Mayo Clinic.  Corporations have relied upon the extraordinist and his unique abilities to entertain and motivate their employees and clients.“Ordinary people are capable of extraordinary results because we all possess extraordinary capabilities.  I communicate that message both verbally and visually,” Karges says.

In a shift of focus from entertainment to empowerment, Karges created Ignite Your Intuition.  This one-of-a-kind presentation does more than simply amaze and entertain.  Participants learn memory techniques; their intuition is tested; and they are taught how to tap into their subconscious mind to enhance creativity, intuition and decision making.  Ignite Your Intuition allows participants to experience greater personal power and achieve success more easily.

Karges’ success in this area led to Ignite Your Intuition, the extraordinist’s first book, published by Health Communications, Inc. (best known for Chicken Soup for the Soul). The extraordinist has also written The Wizard’s Legacy- A Tale of Real Magic and  Extraordinary Tales- Stories from the Road.

From Sardinia to Singapore and from Cancun to Cairo, Karges’ performing schedule has taken him around the world, appearing at corporate events, theatres, universities and casino showrooms.  “No matter where I perform, I try to make my audiences feel they are a part of something they have never experienced before and hopefully will never forget.  My goal is to entertain my audiences through the creation of mystery and to open their minds to unlimited possibilities,” says Karges.

In the uncanny world of Craig Karges there is no smoke and there are no mirrors, just an engaging personality and a powerful presentation that will leave you with the overwhelming sense of having experienced something truly extraordinary!
