The Stage Hypnosis Show
From one to two hours of outrageous fun, where you and your friends or co-workers become the star of the show. Watch them become everything from Elvis to getaway car drivers in big bank robberies, or the world’s best boy band. See them rough up the teddy bear that ran away with their winning lotto numbers or fly a vintage WWII airplane. This is one of the best hypnosis shows in the country and features amazing demonstrations of the science of mind.
“Full audience participation and downright hilarious.”
