9:30pm Friday Night Program: Mentalist Chris Carter

Chris Carter is recognized as one fo the world’s greatest mind readers. He’s not psychic. He’s simply an incredibly skilled observer of human behavior. Starting at age 8 when an uncle allowed him to sit in on a poker game, Chris began to realize people broadcast their thoughts in way beyond words. This led to a lifelong interest in nonverbal communication and ’people reading.”
