December 20, 1946
Uri Geller (Hebrew: אורי גלר), born György Gellér (Hungarian name) on December 20, 1946) is an Israeli-British performer and self-proclaimed psychic who claims "to be able to bend spoons with the power of his mind" and to have psychic powers, although he currently prefers the designation of "mystifier" rather than "psychic."
Geller claims his feats are the result of paranormal powers but critics such as James Randi argue and have demonstrated that Geller's tricks can be reproduced with stage magic and are simply parlor tricks.
