Fortune-Telling by Cards

Fortune Telling By Cards by Professor P.R.S. Foli, 1915At "The Psychic Cabaret" Michael Jons shows us how to read people, thoughts and fortunes. A few people have asked about the 100-year-old books that inspired the show. One of them is "Fortune Telling by Cards" written by Professor P.R.S. Foli, first published in 1915.

Sir Cyril Arthur Pearson, 1st Baronet, GBE (24 February 1866 – 9 December 1921) was a British newspaper magnate and publisher, most noted for founding the Daily Express. He was educated at the prestigious Winchester College in Hampshire. A philanthropist, in 1892 he established the charitable Fresh Air Fund, still in operation and now known as Pearson's Holiday Fund, to enable disadvantaged children to partake in outdoor activities. In 1898, he purchased the Morning Herald, and in 1900 merged it into his new creation, the halfpenny Daily Express. The Express was a departure from the papers of its time and created an immediate impact by carrying news instead of only advertisements on its front page. In 1898, Pearson founded The Royal Magazine, a monthly literary magazine which remained in publication until 1939. 

During 1900s time period, Pearson was also active as a writer, and wrote a number of tourist guides to locations in Britain and Europe. Under the pseudonym of "Professor P R S Foli", he wrote Handwriting as an Index to Character in 1902, as well as works on fortune-telling and dream interpretation.

Psychic Cabaret Sold Out in Tawas

My family has been spending summers on Tawas Bay for generations so I was thrilled to be able to perform a benefit show in support of the Tawas Bay Players and the awesome work they do creating and promoting live theater for the community.

The show sold out a week in advance! The audience on Saturday night could not have been more fun. It was particularly fun for me to have so many family members and neighbors be able to see the show. Thanks to everybody who came to the show and helped make it such an awesome time.

If things work out, it would be great to do it again next year with an all-new stage show!

A Hollywood Feature Film about Psychic Micheal Jons?!

I always imagined that Matt Damon would play me in a feature film, but I think Rich Sommer from "MAD MEN" is a great choice too!

I can neither confirm nor deny that the new black comedy starring Ed Harris and Rich Sommer called, "A Crooked Somebody" is about a character based on ME. However, just take a look at the movie's plot description: 

"Sommer will play master showman Michael Jons, a self-dubbed psychic medium and charismatic charlatan who is kidnapped by an emotionally unhinged man."

Awesome! They think I'm charismatic!

Although the script was written with the "charismatic psychic" main character named Micheal Jons, I believe they have changed the name to Michael Vons in the final film -- I guess they didn't want to imply that the caracter is REALLY me. Besides, Michael Vons is only a pretend psychic.

All I can say is that it sounds like a movie about an absolutely fascinating - and handsome - guy!

Cant' wait for the film's release!

Psychic Cabaret Celebrates Six Months in DC - And We're Just Getting Started!

Happy 6-month Anniversary!

It's hard to believe that it has already been 6 months since Michael Jons' Psychic Cabaret opened in Washington, DC last October. Time flies when you're having fun!

I feel incredibly lucky to have found such an awesome home for the show here in Washington. Eveybody who comes to the show comments on how wonderful the food, wine, atmosphere and staff is at Eno Wine Bar in Georgetown.

Washington audiences could not have been more welcoming. Every show has been as unique as the audience, but they have always made it a fun and delightful experience for all.

We have more shows scheduled over the next couple months but I am not planning to stop there! In fact, I am hoping that as word of the show continues to spread that we will be able to move to a weekly schedule. 

THANK YOU to everyone who has come out and supported The Psychic Cabaret! I see some great things in our future!

Michael's show was amazing. An incredible mentalist who brought humor and delight to the audience. I can't recommend the show enough as a local date night or entertainment for a tourist couple.
-- Ryan R. from Somerville, MA on 3/27/2017 via Yelp 

This is the best good clean fun I've had in ages!! Michael Jons is enthusiastic and passionate about his craft and his showmanship shines!!! The show is funny, engaging and most important, amazing!! It's an intimate space and the audience is very much involved but Michael makes even the shyest of us comfortable!!! Truly a great evening and wonderful food and drinks at Eno as well!!. Highly Recommend!!
-- Mariesa B. from Washington, DC on 3/27/2017 via Yelp 

This is an intimate unique show that was really fun. Michael connects to each individual in the small audience, shares his craft and most importantly wows the audience with his significant talents. We did not know what to expect from a show in a wine bar, but it was a perfect venue for a show that is just a little strange - in a very good way. If you want something different, this is a thing for you!
-- K Lenihan on 3/27/2017 via Goldstar 

An entertaining and amusing show -- Michael Jons offers a fine combination of mentalism and magic.
-- Blau7103 on 3/27/2017 via Goldstar 

Thank you so much for the kind words!
