Magician James Randi, known as 'The Amazing Randi', is presenting an exclusive public screening of his biographical documentary, 'An Honest Liar,' at UWA's Octagon Theatre on Wednesday 3rd December 2014.
Randi has spent the bulk of his career debunking the claims of self-proclaimed psychics and paranormalists. He has an international reputation as a magician and escape artist, but he is perhaps best known as the world's most tireless investigator and de-mystifier of paranormal and pseudoscientific claims.
He has received numerous awards and recognitions, including a MacArthur Foundation Prize Fellowship (also known as the 'MacArthur 'Genius' Grant') in 1986. He's the author of numerous books, including Flim-Flam!: Psychics, ESP, Unicorns, and Other Delusions (1982), The Truth About Uri Geller (1982), The Faith Healers (1987), and An Encyclopedia of Claims, Frauds, and Hoaxes of the Occult and Supernatural (1995).
This anticipated event is part of James Randi's 2014 Australian Tour with Think Inc. The Perth event will be hosted by Richard Saunders, president of the Australians Skeptics and host of the Skeptic Zone podcast and opened by Jake Farr-Wharton, Author of Letters to Christian Leaders - Hollow Be Thy Claims and host of the award winning Imaginary Friends Show podcast. During the evening, Randi will participate in a fireside chat and Q&A session with the audience.
This is a rare opportunity to learn about the wonderful world of magic and skepticism alongside a world-renowned mastermind.
