1 9 7 1 – 1 9 7 5 (Canada)
90 x 30 minute episodes
This syndicated magic variety show screened from 1971 to 1975 and was known in 1975 as The New Kreskin Show.
The prestidigitator Kreskin (born George Joseph Kresge) performed mind-boggling feats of magic and mind reading, introduced by Bill Luxton.
Kreskin specialized in ESP – he knew where you had been that morning, what was in the sealed envelope, and where the lady in the third row went for her vacation.
Celebrity guests occasionally appeared, including William ‘Captain Kirk’ Shatner (who seemed to turn up just about everywhere in the 1970s).
The Amazing World of Kreskin was taped in Canada for broadcast on the CTV Network and was syndicated in the US.
