During the past fifty years Kreskin has had a television series, his own board game by Milton Bradley, twenty published books, and a major motion picture inspired by his work.

The airline industry estimates that Kreskin has flown over 3 million miles, to reach a vast international audience with his unique brand of Mentalism. To reveal his remarkable diversity, John Romero, a leading gaming authority quotes in his book, ‘Las Vegas The Untold Story’ “Kreskin is the most dangerous person in the world with a deck of cards. The casinos would rather deal to Willie Sutton”. Actor/Producer Tom Hanks released in 2009 the feature film, ‘The Great Buck Howard”. It is announced at the end of the movie that the inspiration for the main character is The Amazing Kreskin. That character is played by the star of the movie, John Malkovich.

One of the winners was Heather “The Heat” Hardy and he was further brought in to prepare and condition her mentally for a contest of worldwide dimension.

She had just won the WBC International Junior Featherweight Championship of the World.

From the moment she emerged from the womb, Luz Michelle, was instantly thrust into quite a unique existence. Half Colombian & half Native-American and adopted from Bogota, Colombia by two Eastern European Jews, Luz was raised in NYC on the forgotten borough with the second biggest dump in the world that they now call "Heroin Island" - Staten Island, New York. It is no wonder she often turns heads wherever she goes - though it’s more often because of her distinctly nasal and louder than average laugh and strong New York accent vs. her striking beauty. Luz has channelled her experiences and background into a successful comedy career, gracing stages with her malapropisms and unique style as far as Israel and Austin, TX and closer to home at marquis venues such as Dangerfield's, Gotham Comedy Club, The Pit, The Metropolitan Room, Brother Vic’s, Lucy’s Laugh Lounge, The Triad Theater and The Stand, among many others. Recently, Luz introduced Hard Headed Comedy™, an entertaining showcase of both established and up-and-coming comedic talent in the Northeast.
