Magician Keith Barry Loves Playing Mind Tricks On Celebrities

DUBLIN, Ireland (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Magician Keith Barry enjoys playing tricks on people but gets a special charge from “freaking out celebrities.”

Barry is the focus of an upcoming CBS special, Keith Barry: Extraordinary, where he performs illusions on Elijah Wood, Matthew McConaughey and Nicollette Sheridan.

He admits the celebs are particularly fun to fool because, “They’re such control freaks, I like to take control of them for a few minutes.”

For instance, Barry especially enjoyed playing mind tricks on two members of The Pussycat Dolls by kidnapping them and then driving fast on the freeway while blindfolded.

Barry’s special airs May 12 and he’s hoping to do a second one where he tries to pull the wool over the eyes of Steve Martin and Neil Patrick Harris, whom he says are both accomplished magicians and know the tricks of the trade.
