Gerry McCambridge

Who is the Mentalist

Gerry took his love for magic, and mixed it with the observational skills he learned from his father, a New York City Detective, to create the character of “The Mentalist.”


In 2002 Gerry wrote his first TV show titled “The Mentalist.” The show aired on NBC to millions in the United States. It also aired in Australia, New Zealand, the U.K., South Korea, Canada, Africa, Thailand, India, the Netherlands and the Middle East.


After seeing Gerry perform, CBS thought the concept of merging the skills of a mentalist with a detective was so interesting, they contacted Gerry and asked him to help with a weekly TV series based on that premise. The producers wanted to express their thanks so they gave Gerry a shout out in season 5, episode 13, by naming a character in the show “Mr. McCambridge!”


In the summer of 2004 Gerry performed his one man show “The Mentalist” to critical acclaim Off-Broadway in New York City. In 2005 Gerry moved his show to Las Vegas where he was voted the “Best Magic Show” in all of Las Vegas, and is ranked in the Top 10 Las Vegas tourist attractions by TripAdvisor.

Las Vegas Headliner

Since opening in Las Vegas in 2005, Gerry’s one man show has been a huge success. He currently headlines nightly at 7:30PM at the V Theater in the Planet Hollywood Casino.
