Jason Michaels website

Christian & Katalina website

Christian & Katalina are the #1 Husband and Wife Comedy Mind Reading Act in the Nation. They have created a fun, yet mystifying act that infuses modern day repartee with psychological illusions. Visualize one-part Candid Camera, one-part Twilight Zone, and one-part X-Files.

Since meeting in the Army in 1994, while jumping out of airplanes, and being on the road for nearly a decade, Christian & Katalina are entertainment experts. They perform in intimate environments where the jaw-dropping mystery happens close-up in the hands of only a few spectators and they perform a sensational stage show for larger audiences. Either way you will experience the master illusionist skills, sophisticated humor, and undeniable enigmatic spark that Christian & Katalina bring to all of their cutting-edge performances.

Their performance art is a series of mind-bending adventures. It is a psychological thriller that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. When Christian is not showering Katalina with affection on stage, he might be predicting the next three moves you will make. Katalina’s ability to have sightless vision drops the jaws of even the most jaded audience. When you cross the threshold into their theatrical world, be prepared to be a part of the interaction, comedic banter, and moments of disbelief.

Christian & Katalina have performed for 15 years and over 2000 shows. They are either at their public show at the Hilton Indianapolis Hotel & Suites in the heart of downtown Indianapolis or on the road booked for various touring gigs that encompass everything from corporate events, team building, fun facilitation and trade shows.
