ITHACA, NY – Ever wonder what it would be like to know what someone else was thinking? What if you knew exactly what someone else was going to do before they did it?  Mind Reader Eric Dittelman knows what that’s like and has been reading minds at theaters, colleges, comedy clubs, and corporate events all across the country since graduating from Ithaca College in 2007.

Dittelman will bring his highly entertaining, audience–participation show to The State Theatre of Ithaca stage on Saturday, October 29th at 7:00 PM.  This performance is in conjunction with Ithaca’s 2nd Annual Wizarding Weekend, taking place throughout downtown Ithaca that day.

The “Eric Dittelman: Mind Reader” show combines astounding mind reading with stand-up and improvisational comedy.   Dittelman blew audiences away as a semi-finalist and judges’ favorite on season 7 of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”  He has appeared as a guest on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and was featured in Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone Magazine and was recently named 2015’s “Best Male Performer Award” by Campus Activities Magazine.

General admission tickets are $19.50 in advance or $22.50 if purchased the day of the performance and are available through the State Theatre Box Office at 105 West State/Martin Luther King Street in downtown Ithaca, by calling (607) 277-8283 or online at   This show is the second installment in this season’s Tompkins Trust Company / CSP Management Family Series at The State Theatre.  It is co-sponsored by Ithaca’s Wizarding Weekend and The Ithaca College Alumni Association.
