Mark Toland is creating mind blowing live shows.

I am a full-time mind reader. Yes, you read that right - a MIND READER. I make my living providing custom entertainment for large companies. You may have seen me on NBC, FOX, WGN, NPR, or giving my TEDx Talk.

For a full idea of what I do watch this video and read the press on my website.




I've spent the last ten years as a full-time, self-employed artist. I make my living performing customized shows for major corporations. However, my real dream is to perform live theater shows around the world.

This summer (2017) I took time off from my corporate gigs to go on tour. It was an experiment to see if the show was ready and how much time/energy it would take. The good news? The show received rave reviews and several awards. The honest truth? It was much more expensive than I could ever have anticipated.

That's why I've decided to start this Patreon. A tour is expensive and I need all the help I can get. Money goes into show creation, props, photography/video equipment, rehearsals, promotion, marketing, printing costs, ticket sales, publicity, and more. As a Patron you will be helping me take my live show to the masses in a way that wouldn't be possible if I was doing this alone. With your help, I'll be able to go on an even larger tour and keep creating cutting-edge, mind blowing shows.

The goal is to take the show to better festivals and bigger venues. Eventually, I hope to film the show professionally and release it in full on my website.

I believe that live entertainment is one of the most important things we have left today. We live in a world of technology and fast-moving ideas, but there is still something oh-so-exciting about sitting in the dark with several hundred other people and experiencing something that will only exist in that moment.



Currently I work with my wife to book corporate events around the world. Everything from poster design to promotional photos to client relations is done by just the two of us. It is a time consuming but rewarding pursuit, and it doesn't leave much extra time or resources to work on shows for public audiences. With additional support from patrons, we will be able to part from corporate work for a portion of the year to bring shows and content straight to the fans - people like YOU!



Here are some other questions I get asked a lot:

Can I see a show? - Most of the time, unfortunately, the answer is no. 99% of my work is for private/corporate events. Thanks to Patrons, I'll finally be able to take the show on the road and answer this question with a resounding YES.

How long have you been reading minds? - For over 20 years! I was obsessed with it as a child and kept working on it. I always forget how different my job is because I have been doing it for most of my life and it just feels normal to me.

Can I hire you for an event? - The point of this Patreon is not to advertise my services. I'm really just hoping to find people who value my work and want to support interesting projects. If you really wish to book me you can find more information on my website.

How do you read minds? - Now you're asking too many questions. ;)

Thank you for becoming a Patron and supporting my projects. I can't wait to share my work with you!
