Hypnosis Entertainment – Here’s What You Need to Know!
Here are the most commonly asked questions about bringing a Stage Hypnosis Show to your event. You’re in good hands. Comedy Hypnotist Erick Känd has done hundreds of performances at events just like yours!
Do You Perform at Events in Our Area?
Yes. Comedy Stage Hypnotist Erick Känd has performed in every state of the USA! He travels to all areas nationwide to perform Hypnosis Shows for appreciative audiences.
How Long is a Stage Hypnosis Show?
The Erick Känd Comedy Stage Hypnosis Show is 60 or 90 minutes in length depending on the needs of your event.
Can I Make the Performance a Surprise for Our Audience?
NOT recommended! It is far more beneficial to let your guests know in advance about the great entertainment you’ve booked for them. A Stage Hypnosis Show works with psychological principles of anticipation and expectation.
By promoting your show in advance of the event:
- You’ll give your people something interesting to talk about.
- They’ll have something specific to look forward to, and
- Both the quality and quantity of your volunteer participation will be significantly enhanced on the day of your event.
How Should We Promote Our Hypnosis Entertainment?
There are a variety of downloadable files right on this website to help you promote your event entertainment. These include press releases, high resolution pictures, a bio-sheet, etc.
Use these files to promote your upcoming Stage Hypnotist Show in email blasts, event brochures, welcome packages, event posters, and press releases.
Should I Create a List of Volunteers for the Hypnosis Show?
No. It is in no way helpful to your performance to attempt to get commitment from any volunteers in advance.
Comedy Stage Hypnotist Erick Kand will open your performance with a humorous pre-talk about hypnosis is designed to get your audience members excited to participate.
How are Volunteers Selected for a Stage Hypnosis Show?
The Stage Hypnosis Show volunteers are NOT chosen by the entertainer. In fact, each participant is actually a self-selecting volunteer. Only audience members that are highly interested in participating will be invited to come on stage.
As expected, some people will prefer to be spectators and others will desire to be “a part of the action.”
Your performer is an expert at putting your audience members at ease with a pre-talk designed to get people excited about participating. His opening comments address the myths about hypnosis in a humorous way.
Additional interactive “suggestibility tests” with the entire group reveal that everyone has the ability to quickly enter the trance state! The end result is that you’ll be surprised by the motivation of your audience members to become a part of the show.
Do Stage Hypnosis Volunteers Truly Have Fun?
A Stage Hypnosis Show can be very entertaining without embarrassing the participants. In truth, the committee of volunteers will have the most fun of anyone attending your event!
They’re all treated with respect as the true stars of the program. After the performance, they’ll feel great, and be VERY glad they participated.
How About Two Rounds of Volunteers to Get More People Involved?
NOT recommended! The performance is designed around a single group of self-selecting volunteers who go deeper into trance as the show progresses. The deeper levels allow for more unique and interesting skits to unfold over the duration of the performance.
While the hypnosis induction is an interesting aspect of the show, it would lose it’s charm if it had to be done twice. Think about the Hypnosis Show as something that unfolds like a movie experience. You DON’T want to suddenly change the actors, and start back at the beginning!
Remember, your performer does interactive things with the entire audience during the opening comments, so everyone is indeed a part of the action. Meanwhile, the BEST volunteers for the stage will be those people that are motivated, and chomping at the bit to volunteer as soon as they are given the chance.
What is the Cost of a Stage Hypnosis Performance at Our Event?
