Semifinalist on America’s Got Talent
Guest on Ellen
Performed with “The Illusionists” on Broadway
Ever wonder what it would be like to know what someone else was thinking? What if you knew exactly what someone else was going to do before they did it? Eric Dittelman knows what that’s like and has been reading minds at theaters, colleges, comedy clubs, and corporate events all across the country.
Often known by just his surname, Dittelman combines amazing mind reading with stand-up and improv comedy. In 2012, he blew audiences away as the first ever mind reader on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” where he was a season 7 semi-finalist and judges’ favorite. He has since appeared on “Ellen”, “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” where Penn called his act “bordering on genius!” He’s also been featured in “Entertainment Weekly”, “Rolling Stone”, and even “The National Enquirer”.
He has studied improv comedy with Upright Citizens Brigade, Improv Boston and Second City. He was nominated “Fastest Rising Star” and won 2015’s “Best Male Performer Award” by Campus Activities Magazine. In 2018, he made his Broadway debut appearing with “The Illusionists”.
