"Doug is the most exciting of the new breed of contemporary British “Mind Readers” “Mind Magicians” or “Psychological Entertainers” but is probably best marked out as being the only one with a sense of humour."
Following on from his sell out show last year Doug is back with his show in Edinburgh this year called Doug Segal: How to read Minds and Influence People. The show has been described as ‘A show that leaves people open mouthed with astonishment and on their feet’ by the Edinburgh Evening News. The show last year very positive reviews some even rewarding it 5 stars.
His show starts on the 2nd of August at 19:00 and is running up until the last date of the festival on the 27th.
