Christopher Carter is an American mentalist who has performed at colleges and corporate venues in the United States. Because he is such a brilliant mentalist, some were convinced that he was just an illusion when he performed. He was even credited with confusing a mentally ill man into believing that he was perfectly sane.

Carter grew up in Springfield, Illinois. He was fascinated by magic tricks and used to perform them, much to his mother's dismay. In an attempt to distract his interests, she gave him a book on reading body language. At age 8, Carter became interested in ESP and mindreading when his uncle allowed him to sit in on a poker game. At the table, he observed the use of body language and tells; this experience, he claims, showed him that people display their thoughts in ways other than words. A few years later, a high school hypnotist further sparked Carter's interest in the mind.

Carter attended Illinois Wesleyan University where he originally majored in psychology, but later switched to theater and business, receiving a bachelor's degree in 1987. During his four years of graduate studies at the University of Michigan, where he studied theater, he began to put these fields together into a performance incorporating mentalism, mind reading, precognition and spoon bending.
