Uri Geller (Tel Aviv, December 20, 1946) is an Israeli illusionist, known for having psychic powers.
He began his career as a magician in Israeli nightclubs. He began to be known for his performances in which he claimed to have paranormal abilities such as telekinesis, telepathy and the search for underground water; it could be seen how he folded metal objects and stopped watches, or they worked faster, apparently without any physical force applied to them.
Born to Hungarian parents, they called him Uri because of a cousin who had died in a bus accident.
According to Uri Geller, he first realized his abilities when he was four years old. Then he was in the garden of an Arab family, next to his house, when he was hit by a light from the sky that threw him to the lawn, after which he ran to tell his mother. Shortly after, while he was taking soup, his spoon was bent and broke.
He lived in Cyprus from 11 to 17 years old. He served as a paratrooper in the Israeli Army, and was wounded in action during the Six Day War, in 1967. He worked as a photographic model in 1968 and 1969.
In 1969 he began acting for small audiences as a magician, but soon he would become famous throughout Israel. At the height of his career, in the 1970s, he worked full-time acting for television stations around the world.
Uri Geller arrived in Munich in June 1972 and immediately began to be noticed along with his agent Yasha Katz, who prepared the tricks. For this, it uses different techniques that have been shown several times by different illusionists.
Geller partially withdrew from public life in the 1980s. He claimed to be concentrating on enjoying the accumulated wealth of finding groundwater, Geller says that many companies hired their services to find oil, gold and minerals, but are reluctant to admit it. Recently, his performances, such as the bending of spoons, have become much less frequent.
