While enjoying the company of colleagues and friends, we will also honor the 2017 IIANC Award Winners and install the 2017-18 officers and directors to the IIANC Board of Directors. Then continue celebrating with Sean Bott, a nationally-recognized performer and mentalist.

Sean Bott

Comedy Mentalist Sean Bott began his love of entertaining crowds growing up on an army base in Saudi Arabia.

With appearances on HBO, the SyFY Channel, the CW, NBC and in 127 Hours with James Franco, Sean's innovative and distinct brand of comedy mentalism has enthralled audiences worldwide. The LA Times even described Sean’s show as “A crazy blend of Jack Black and Criss Angel. AMAZING!”

During the show handfulls of pocket change will melt, time will travel on watches and smartphones, participants will feel themselves pushed as Sean stand clear across the stage from them. Minds will be read, objects will move with no physical contact, and your students will freak out!  You'll gasp, you'll laugh, you'll love it!

A Wyoming student put it best recently “This guys not just a mind reader, he’s a freaking JEDI!”

And, compared to other mentalists, Sean's improv comedy skills are through the roof!

Not only is your crowd going to freak out, but they'll laugh really hard while they do it!
