With nearly 20 years of performance experience behind me, I have been lucky to have had the opportunity, to share with folks, from all walks of life, what it is like to be hypnotized.
In every performance, as the curtain opens or as I appear on stage, I spend several minutes getting to know my audience and share some astounding mind demonstrations that get the show off to an energetic start.
In each and every show, I invite a dozen or more guests to come forward. In very little time they are all experiencing some of the fun that mild hypnosis brings on. Within minutes nearly everyone has drifted way down into the relaxation of deep hypnosis.
For those reading this that may be unfamiliar with hypnosis, you may be interested to know that hypnosis is really a very natural state of mind in which the subconscious mind is allowed to interact and manage the conscious mind. It works in a similar manner to the way you might unconsciously react when you see someone yawn across the room. In my show, I am able to heighten the effects of this condition in some very astonishing ways. But throughout the show I can assure you, there is never anything presented that could be considered a way to embarrass the participants.
Often what makes a hypnosis show so enjoyable is its unpredictability. No two shows have ever been identical as the volunteers in each show are never identical. Two different people can react in very different ways to exactly the same hypnotic suggestion. Consequently, watching what some folks do in hypnosis can sometime seem bizarre or unexpected for me as well as the audience…but for the audience it’s always hilarious.
Throughout the show, I implant certain hypnotic commands using the power of suggestion. As a result, my guests find that they able to react with remarkable side splitting, laugh evoking actions exactly as if each moment were actually real to them. It doesn’t matter how incredibly zany or impossible the suggestions might seem out of hypnosis... they can't resist following them.
Each performance is tailored along the way to maximize fun for everyone and I am continually manipulating the situation to capitalize on those individual “stars of the show” that react to hypnosis the most expressively.
At the end of each show, having brought all of the guests back out of hypnosis for the final time the fun continues to build. At this time suggestions referred to as “post hypnotic suggestions” begin to take effect. This is when instructions given under hypnosis earlier are oddly carried out even after all hypnosis has been totally removed. Once you see post hypnotic suggestions being folloed or better still…once you feel it… you’ll never forget it.
I hope that this brief description helps to give you a bit more understanding of how the show is carried out. I will end here, by providing you with a list of some of hypnotic suggestions you might see people do in your show. Just imagine seeing your friends or colleagues in these situations and how they would react in hypnosis…you won’t stop laughing... and laughing. Not unless you're one of the guests on stage!
