Craig Karges 'The Mentalist' to Perform at GC on April 29

Garrett College will present Craig Karges, 'The Mentalist', on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 at 9 p.m. in the auditorium at the McHenry campus. Tickets are now on sale in the Student Life Office at the college. The 'extraordinist' is an award-winning entertainer, a nationally recognized speaker and an author.

Karges has made over 40 national television appearances, including The Tonight Show, CNN, Fox News Channel, CNBC, E! Entertainment Television, Lifetime Television, Wisdom Television, and even SOAPnet. The sheer number and diversity of Karges' television appearances is indicative of his widespread popularity.

He first became popular touring college campuses. He was named Entertainer of the Year six times by the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA). Past NACA award-winners include Bruce Springsteen and Jay Leno. NACA's campus membership also voted Karges as Variety Entertainer of the Year for twelve consecutive years. The independent Campus Activities Magazine named Karges Entertainer of the Year on four occasions. In addition to Entertainer of the Year, the magazine also named Karges Best Performing Arts Attraction, Best Male Performer, Best Solo Act and Best Novelty Act. The extraordinist was the fifth inductee into the National Campus Entertainment Hall of Fame.

"No matter where I perform, I try to make my audiences feel they are a part of something they have never experienced before and hopefully will never forget. My goal is to entertain my audiences through the creation of mystery and to open their minds to unlimited possibilities," says Karges.

"Craig was here in 2006 as part of the Garrett Lakes Arts Festival and had a sold out show," said Sarah Schenk, Assistant Coordinator of Residence Life and Student Activities at Garrett College. "I have seen him perform elsewhere and the shows were standing room only. His shows are phenomenal and mind blowing. I'm excited to be able to bring him to the Garrett College campus once again, in the hopes of another successful show!"

Advance tickets are now available at the Student Life Office at Garrett College. Advance tickets are as follows: $3 for students with Garrett College ID, $5 for faculty/staff at Garrett College, and $7 for the general public. Tickets will be more expensive at the door, so it is important to get tickets in advance. For more information on Craig Karges: The Mentalist, persons may contact Sarah Schenk at 301-387-3129 or
