For over 65 years, The Amazing Kreskin has been the world’s foremost mentalist and a talk show regular going all the way back to “The Tonight Show” before Johnny Carson, through Carson himself, Letterman, Leno, Kimmel, Fallon and finally to the career pinnacle of coming on my podcast.
As you’ll hear, The Amazing Kreskin was wise enough not to read my mind, but we discuss his start in show business, how Carson loved him because as a magician himself, he respected mentalists as opposed to the frauds who pass themselves off as psychics. He describes some of the most incredible tricks he ever pulled off. And finally we get into his 20th book “In Real Time,” and our mutual contempt for the clowns that are running our country into the ground.
I think if The Amazing Kreskin can keep climbing the later of big time bookings like this, he might have a future in show business. Enjoy.

Way to go, NFL. That’s a hell of an operation you’re running there, Roger Goodell. The biggest game in the biggest sport, expected to be the most watched television event in the history of North America. And you’re managing it with all the attention to detail of a 2-year old deciding which sneaker got on which foot.
Looking at the way you handle everything else, from domestic violence to blatant tampering to phony investigations to taking draft picks away from a team absolved of wrongdoing, we shouldn’t be surprised. The NFL continues to be the most amateurishly run multi-billion monopoly in the history of the world. Although it could just be that the league would prefer to have the Super Bowl be a home game for Denver.
Like they say, real life imitates art. Great googly moogly.
One of the most improbable long shots to cross the finish line for me in years is the complete 180 I’ve done on Brandon Marshall of the Jets. It wasn’t that long ago that he was the consummate petulant, coach-killing, locker room carcinogen, me-first NFL diva. And I thought he was full of it when he announced he was battling borderline personality disorder, because to me that was just coming up with a nice scientific term for being a tool bag.
But since then I’ve seen him on enough talk shows and watched the way he plays tackle football, and I have to admit, he won me over. That is, until this. Until he went on Comedy Central’s “The Nightly Show” with Larry Wilmore and declared the Jets are better than either the Panthers or the Broncos. Scroll this video past 10 full minutes of rational, reasonable opinions about football, Cam Newton, race and on-field celebrations and get right to the crazy. Marshall actually pushed air out of his lungs, made sound with his vocal chords and used his mouth to form those words. I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t heard it with my own ears. But the video does not lie.
It’s further proof that in a very weird way, it would be good to be a Jet or a Jets fan. To live in a world where you judge yourself not by your successes or failures, but by how you feel about yourself. Where the scoreboard means nothing, so long as you believe you were the better team. To occupy a participation trophy plane of existence where you convince yourself you have the best team, best defense and best coach, and you yourself are the best at your position, actual accomplishments be damned. And then when your season ends in futility again for the 40-somethingth year in a row, you rip the Patriots for their (take your pick) failure or cheating until you feel satisfied. It’s so much easier than having high standards.
At least Brandon Marshall has kept me as a fan in this regard: He might be the funniest thing on Comedy Central.
You may recall that sometime during the peak days of 2015’s Summer of Gronk, Rob Gronkowski and his brothers announced they were booking passengers for their epic “Gronk’s Party Ship,” due to set sail in February to a private island in what Jimmy Buffett would call St. Somewhere.
Well, as bro-tastic as that multi-day party rock moment sounds, the whole lead-up to it just went next level on the cruise’s website. Some genius with a limitless future in marketing added bios of all the central characters. And they are perhaps the finest words ever put together since the invention of written language.
I don’t feel right about trying to paraphrase them. It’s like what Salieri said about Mozart’s music. It’s perfection. Displace one note and there would be diminishment. Displace one phrase and the structure would fall. But together they’re way too long to keep this to blog length. (Though you can read the whole thing here.) So I’ll try the best my unworthy brain can to select the highlights:
Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski A.K.A. “The Superstar!” Rob is rated the #1 party rocker in all of pro sports. He is the superstar, he is the main attraction, the headliner, and there has never been a player in history in any sport that exemplifies excellence in the field of play in addition to the field of party rock. Men want to be him and chix want to be with him. His humility is astounding, which combined with his body builder physique, leaves women utterly susceptible to his charm! …
Gordie “Gord” Gronkowski A.K.A. “The Captain.” As the oldest Gronk brother, this former professional baseball star and current professional big brother calls the shots, he makes the moves, and ensures that everyone’s always as positive as possible. … Gordie is a team player, he keeps everyone’s self confidence as high as the sky, even while all the girls are scratching and clawing at his silky smooth body! And for some reason they always do because he constantly looks like he got mauled by a cougar: both the animal and type of woman! …
Dan Gronkowski A.K.A. “The Brains.” Dan looks like he is straight out of the movie 300 except he doesn’t need the CGI! He is tall, he is chiseled, and all the chix unanimously agree that he is very handsome. Dan is also the responsible one, and is the only one on the team that is no longer a bachelor. Even though we all are not thrilled to lose our brother to the institution of marriage, Dan’s bride-to-be is a cool chick, rages hard, and brings all her girlfriends around, so it’s OK by us! … Therefore he is the official chix recruiter and wingman for the team. Dan displays his dedication to the team by always providing valuable assists, which is why he has locked down the team’s unsung hero award!!!
Chris Gronkowski A.K.A. “The One Seed.” Chris is a genius and could have gone to Harvard to play football but told them no thanks, for the sole reason that they don’t party. Chris is a wild man. Whether he’s throwing spine-crushing and punishing blocks or dominating every party he’s ever been to, Chris has an affinity for nudity and he gets so wild that we lose him a lot. … Chris is a survivor and we usually find him facedown somewhere, or in a DJ booth after he abducted it … even if he collapses in the middle of the street, a dance floor, or on the floor of the library, because it’s all happened before.
Gordy “Papa Gronk” Gronkowski A.K.A. “The Innovator.” Big G has taken party rocking to epic proportions over the past decades. A former college and pro football star himself, he has redefined party rocking year after year and he has established the precedent for us to live by. … Perhaps that is why countless people have offered Big G big money to purchase his sperm so they can have the children of champions themselves. It’s not every day you can see a father hang with his sons on the dance floor, and it’s even more rare to have a father whose sons constantly get rejected by chix because they would rather hit on their dad instead. Women of all ages fall head over heels for the jackedness and dieselness of Big G. …
There you have it. The bro-eiest thing any bro ever wrote about other bros. And all this coming out just as we hear the Patriots talked to youngest brother Glenn at the Senior Bowl? Please. I don’t want them to draft him. I need them to draft him. Provided, of course, that he’s a party rocking, chiseled, chix magnet the cougars love with jackedness and dieselness made with The Innovator’s sperm. There just is not enough Gronk in our lives.
