CAA puts its mind to it

Agency sees big things in mentalist's future

If you don’t know who Gerry McCambridge is, you probably need to fire your social secretary — you’re not getting into the right soirees.

But if you spend your evenings at high-society parties where the entertainment regularly gets $10,000 a night, then you probably know all about McCambridge: He’s the comedic but uncannily accurate mentalist who can tell you the exact contents of your wallet — along with your favorite city, the concept or word you’ve just thought of at random or your long-kept-a-secret middle initial.

This Wednesday, CAA will attempt to levitate McCambridge from “the easy thing — a one-off TV special,” according to one CAA insider — into the forefront of the reality TV wolfpack. The percentery intends to pack its theater with A-list TV scribes and producers, and even a few motion picture folk for good measure, in an effort to both entertain skeptics and package a new show.

“We’ve asked him, ‘Can you be the Jerry Springer of your world?,’ ” explained one percenter there. ” ‘Can we put you onstage with a husband and wife and have you ask — ‘Okay, why are you fucking your secretary?’ ”

Apparently, McCambridge, who’s been performing since his teen years, won’t do anything to destroy anyone’s private life, so other ideas are being considered.

Perhaps a version of gameshow “Jeopardy!” in which there’s no need for contestants to answer aloud?

” ?”

“That’s right!”
