At a young age, Uri and his family would move to Cyprus where he attended Terra Santa College High School to learn English. When he was 18 years old he decided to join the Israeli Army, and served in the Six-Day War. After his service, he started to model and then became an entertainer, performing in nightclubs and other venues. As his popularity increased, he was receiving invites to universities, theaters and military bases. At the start of the 1970s, he was getting recognition worldwide and many groups were inviting him, mostly from the scientific community, in order to study his skills.

Geller claimed he had skills such as telepathy, telekinesis, psychokinesis and the like. His tricks involved bending spoons, adjusting the speed of watches and describing hidden drawings. His abilities came into question a lot as many believed that his skills were easily replicated as magic tricks. One particular critic of his work was James Randi who was able to duplicate most of Uri’s work using magic techniques. Despite this, his popularity continued, and he even released an autobiography. At the peak of his career in the 70s and 80s his net worth was increasing significantly due to the money he greceived after each performance.

Later in his career, he started to focus more on television shows and films, appearing in the 2001 horror movie “Sanitarium”. He was also a part of shows such as “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here”, and “The Successor”. Geller and Criss Angel also became a part of “Phenomenon”, in search of the next great mentalist. He continues to make television shows today, with recent works such as “De Nieuwe Uri Geller” on Dutch television and “Book of Knowledge”.

Throughout his career, Uri has been chased after by critics and controversial performances. In one appearance, he went on to “The Tonight Show” and was apparently unable to reproduce his abilities. He claimed that his powers were weak during that point, but the audiences and Johnny Carson became skeptical.

For his personal life, he married Hannah Shtrang in 1979, and currently resides in Berkshire, United Kingdom. He also knows how to speak Hungarian and Hebrew. Uri was good friends with Michael Jackson, who was present during the time Uri renewed his vows in 2001.

2So, I am independently well-off and don't have to do anything, but I still do. I write books, lecture around the world, work with scientists and governments.
3I was sued by a woman who claimed that she became pregnant because she watched me on television and I bent her contraceptive coil.
4I was about five years old when I was eating soup in our kitchen, and as I was lifting the spoon towards my mouth, it bent and broke in half.
5The best part of being a vegan is the purity and peace of mind one experiences and the strong connection I feel to the animal kingdom.

10I believe in past lives but I know nothing about mine and I don't want to know. I live in the present, taking one day at a time.
11Nowadays even presidents, vice-presidents, and heads of big agencies are opening their minds to accept psychic phenomena, because they know it works.
12I think I usually have quite ordinary dreams. Sometimes my dreams take me to other dimensions. I can travel in my mind especially when I'm dreaming I focus my mind on what I want to dream. If I want to fly, I focus on flying.
