Carter is recognized as one of the world’s greatest “mind-readers.” What he does is hard to describe. He has no special powers, he’s just in the business of freaking people out. In his own words, he makes his living PLAYING WITH OTHER PEOPLE’S MINDS. He is notorious for reading and revealing the thoughts of audience members, but don’t worry, he won’t reveal any embarrassing information…unless it’s funny.
