the "Psychic Madman" Jim Karol appears in Jackass: number two

Mental phenomenon and celebrity entertainer, the "Psychic Madman" Jim Karol, who was just featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, is now appearing in theaters everywhere in the movie, Jackass: number two. Chris Pontius, Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Bam Margera, Jason "Wee Man" Acuna, and the whole crew return to the silver screen to raise the stakes higher than ever before. And this time they have brought the world's one-and-only, real-life "Rainman" and mental rock star, Jim Karol along for the ride. Karol's mind-bending stunts are sure to shock you out of your seat.

How did he get the name "Psychic Madman" you ask? Well, he is the only mentalist in the world who has accepted a “skeptics” challenge to use his intuitive abilities to publicly predict lottery numbers, and he actually delivered. Months in advance Karol publicly predicted the winning daily numbers in the Pennsylvania lottery, producing nearly 40 thousand winners who followed his startling advice, and costing the state MILLIONS. Mark Schreiber, the Pennsylvania lottery commission spokesman said, "We were just fortunate that his predictions didn't get on TV before the numbers were drawn, otherwise we could have been hit for as much as $45 million!" Karol has had to resort to protective services in light of death threats from people who want the next winning lottery numbers. He says he may even give away winning numbers again in the future.

Who in the world can make a 100% documented claim like that? Well, not your ordinary entertainer, or run-of-the-mill "magician or mentalist," that's for sure. Karol is the real deal, and this mental contortionist doesn't just stop at multi-million dollar predictions. Karol has a true gift. He has memorized nearly every zip code and city in the world, along with large stretches of the Scrabble Dictionary, and countless other copious compendiums. He has also memorized the day of the week for every single date in history back to 1 A.D. The U.S. Navy and other government agencies have even approached Jim wanting to do laboratory experiments on his brain. When asked how he could possibly achieve such feats of the mind he said, "Something just happened to me, and now there are times where I accidentally memorize almost everything I see. It even amazes me, but sometimes it scares me to death."

His inhuman memory didn't hurt him when he decided to memorized more card tricks than anyone alive. He can even instantly memorize the order of a deck of cards, making Vegas casinos a bit wary. It is not shocking that his gifts have made him a "celebrity darling." He is often seen in the company of names like Gary Busey, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Jon Lovitz, Jim Breuer, Bryant McGill, Alice Cooper, Dennis Hopper, Faith Hill, Ossie Beck, Marcel Luske, Robert Williamson III, Ann Jillian, Danny Aiello, Dr. Louis Turi, Boomer Esiason, Cheech Marin and countless other stars.

It is not just celebrities who love him, but college students adore the "Madman" too, saying his show is off the Richter scale, which is why he has packed the houses at over 3,000 major universities, many of which must now bring in the police for crowd control. Marty Greenfield, Director of student activities at the State University of New York in Delhi said, "Jim Karol is like Dane Cook, David Blane, Uri Geller, the Amazing Kreskin, 'Rainman' and Rocky Balboa rolled into one show. He simply blows your mind every time. No other performer we have ever brought in draws the crowds and excitement like the Madman. He truly is in a category of his own."

From major movie appearances to White House invitations, Jim has been seen by millions of people through appearances on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Ellen Show, Rosie O’Donnell Show, Montel, and Good Morning America just to name a few. He has headlined at prestigious venues such as the Borgata in Atlantic City and the Trump Plaza. He has held three Guinness World records, one of which was for throwing a standard playing card, "outdoors" over 200 feet. He has recently written his third book, called "Mind Games," and is currently working on several movie projects.
