F.A.Q.

Q: What is a Thought Reader or a Twin Sensory Perceptionist?

A: People have always asked us this question and for years we've been trying to figure out the best way to answer it. A Thought Reader/Twin Sensory Perceptionist is the closest thing our world has to a real Jedi Master. By that we mean they can figure out what you are thinking (read your mind.), persuade and influence you, put thoughts into your head and make you do other things that you normally wouldn't do. (We guess you can say it is similar to the skills that people in the media like politicians & corporations use to either make you vote for them or buy their products, but much more complex and ENTERTAINING!)

Q: Are the Saint Twins Psychic? Do they believe in the Occult or Supernatural?

A: The term "psychic" has been a bit overused & abused in today's media. It conjures up everything from carnival fortune tellers to the infamous "Psychic Hot Line." We think it is fair to say that everyone has the potential to exercise some level of extrasensory or non-physical power. There is nothing supernatural nor occult about what we do. Yes, there have been moments in our lives that strange things have happened to us but we wouldn't label them as being supernatural nor occult. Much like a sense that can be sharpened to compensate for the loss of another, or the way human memory can be expanded and sharpened, one's potential is always unknown until it is revealed and explored. But if you define "psychic" as someone who talks to the dead, then we are definitely not psychics. We have a hard time as it is trying to talk to the living. (especially girls!)

Q: What is Twin Sensory Perception™? Is it like ESP?


A: Twin Sensory Perception™ is something that we believe all twins are born with. It is a special twin connection, we have just developed it further over the years by studying people, twins, and the human mind. We really don't know what one would define ESP as. But TSP isn't anything supernatural nor mystical - we just know how to get inside people's heads & know how to communicate with each other mentally without words because we've been around each other since birth. Talk to any other set of twins and they will tell you they have had similar experiences.

Q: Is it even possible to "read minds?"

A: The truth is that everybody can read minds to an extent. We do it everyday but we don't really realize it. It has been said that 93% of communication is non-verbal. (7% verbal, 38% vocal, 55% body language). You can learn a lot about what people are thinking about by observing their body language, facial expressions or looking at their bookshelves & pictures on their walls than by asking them directly. We have studied the areas of psychology, twins, communications, linguistics, hypnosis and other areas to create the skills we demonstrate on stage.

Q: Can an individual prevent us (the Saint Twins) from reading specific thoughts?

A: The human mind is an amazing thing. Just as there are widely varied levels of intellectual capability, people vary greatly in the degree to which they open themselves up verbally or non-verbally, consciously or unconsciously. We always hear about how certain people are more susceptible to the power of suggestion. Others are reluctant to open themselves up to the concept of the untap powers of the human mind. The truth is, without someone who is willing to meet us halfway on stage, the mind retains its secrets like a lock box. The spectators whom help us out during our show are always treated with dignity and respect and never made to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed.

Q: What are your performance fees?

A: This is our passion - we take our show (not ourselves though) very seriously. We are the only set of twins in the world who do an act like ours, so we are very unique and consider ourselves very professional. (check out testimonial page). There is normally a correlation between a performer's fee and the quality of their program.

You would never think that a $3,000 car might be similar to a $300,000 car. Just the same, you wouldn't think that a $100 entertainer might be similar to a $1,000 entertainer. You normally get what you pay for. And consider this: What you pay for an entertainer is normally a small fraction of what you pay for the meal at a banquet or event, and the entertainment is probably far MORE important than the meal. You often pay 10 times more for the meal than for the entertainer (on a per capita basis), when in fact the evening's program is probably 10 times more important than the meal. Consider the true value-per-person-attending when deciding on your entertainment investment. With this said, there are also other factors that determine our price including location of the show, travel, expenses and more. We offer different entertainment packages for different events. If you are interested in our services, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss the different entertainment packages we offer.

Q: Are the Saint Twins ever wrong?

A: If we happen to miss, don't worry, it will still be entertaining. :) We work with people and hence, all of us are unique and as a result every show will be different. Our show is all about our audience; our only goal is to please them.

Q: Can the Saint Twins teach others what they do?


A: We believe to an extent we could teach people some of the skills that we do. If you take 100 people and give them music lessons for ten years, they should become fairly competent musicians. But one or two might stand out from the rest of the group. So compared to that example, some of the skills we demonstrate can be learned with a lot of hard work ( just like anything else in life) but some of the things we do are solely exclusive to twins.

Q: What is the difference between a magician and what the Saint Twins do?


A: The difference between a magician and what we do is when you see a magician put a girl in a box and then cut her in half, you know at the end no matter how dangerous or amazing it looked, the girl is fine. When you see our show, we work with people. Since we really don’t use props like magicians, things at times have and can go quite differently than what we've planned for. But, it is always in good fun.

Q: I was selected to find entertainment for our annual event and was told I needed someone clean. The person in charge last year hired someone that turned out to be R rated and whom offended our guests and ruined the whole event. Do the Saint Twins do a clean show?

A: Yes, our show is 100% clean. We are Persian Americans and if we make fun of anyone, it is ourselves. (Imagine being a Middle Eastern Thought Reader in today’s world, haha!). We know for a fact that you don't have to swear in your show in order to make people laugh. We also know it's your name on the line when you book the entertainment or speaker for your event. Our main goal is to have everyone in the audience thanking YOU for hiring US and make YOU look like the star of the event.

Q: How far in advance do we need to book the Saint Twins?

A: Some prime dates are booked up to 2 years in advance. It never hurts to inquire about a date no matter how soon or far away the event date may be. You are under no obligation to us by requesting more information about our show. Events that are more than a month away require a 50% deposit and a contract to hold the date.

Q: Do the Saint Twins require a minimum number of people in order to even put on a presentation?

A: We have entertained groups from as few as 10 people to audiences of over 1,500. We offer show packages that will fit into most situations.

Q: The last entertainer we hired had a rider on his contract a mile long with incredible demands on it. Do the Saint Twins have a lot of special requirements in order to do their show?

A: No, in fact our clients always comment on how easy and professional we are to work with. Our contract seems long, but it is really simple. The most important thing is sound. If people can’t hear us, that will be a problem. Feel free to contact us for more information on our rider requirements.

Q: Do the Saint Twins involve audience members in their show?


A: Yes, absolutely! OUR ENTIRE SHOW IS THE AUDIENCE! The show is very much interactive!! During our 30-75 minute TSP show, MANY RANDOM audience members become involved in the show. There is no fun in reading our own minds. :-) Our presentations not only take place on stage, but throughout the entire audience as well. Everyone will feel like they were a part of our show and treated with total respect on and off stage.

Q: Are the Saint Twins personable? Will the Saint Twins be able to meet with our guests after their show to further talk with them?


A: Yes, we always love to do so if unless there is a schedule conflict of course that would require us to leave right away. We would be more than happy to include a meet and greet with your audience members at no additional charge. In fact, what we enjoy most about our job is meeting and talking to our audience after the show.

Q: What do the Saint Twins wish to accomplish?

A: Our goal is to leave an audience feeling totally entertained and mystified. We guarantee our show to be fun, clean, and astonishing. We wish to give our audiences that sense of joy and wonder that we all had as children (and that we still all have, believe it or not!) Furthermore, to paraphrase what once the late great comedian Andy Kaufman said we want to make people think "What's real? What's not? That's what we do in our act, test how other people deal with reality." And last, but not least we also want people to realize that the human mind is the most powerful force in the universe and that we can accomplish, literally, whatever we put our minds to.
Audience leaves with a sense of wonder!
