John King's Mind Control

Thrilling hypnotism and mind reading shows

Give your guests amazement and fun with one of John King's fun, interactive hypnotism & mind reading shows.

Watch your guests gasp in awe as volunteers instantly appear to fall asleep on stage and carry out John's every command.

Participants let their imaginations run riot by taking part in a series of ridiculous sketches that can include going on holiday, being part of a band, witnessing the murder of a fairy, being the world's greatest artist, seeing the entire audience naked and even appearing on a TV game show!

In the stunning show finale, John reveals the intimate thoughts of multiple randomly selected members of the audience with uncanny accuracy.

Important Information

What is this show?

This show is an interactive audience participation show where volunteers take part in a series of entertaining and fun demonstrations of purported mind control including hypnotism and mind reading.

The exact methods used in this show are closely guarded secrets, but the purported phenomena on display is created entirely through safe conjuring techniques. Although it is the intention for it to appear otherwise, participants are fully conscious at all times and participate of their own free will.

What happens if people refuse to cooparate/take part?

As with all audience participation shows, without enough volunteers, there is no show. Volunteers must cooperate enthusiastically and follow instructions. John cannot force people to cooperate against their will. Without enough cooperative volunteers, the show may not be able to proceed and will still be chargeable.

Audience requirements

The larger the audience, the better because larger audiences (of 30+ people) increase the odds that there will be enough voluntary participants for the show to be successful.

For audiences of under 30 people, we recommend John King's intimate magic shows instead. Volunteers who participate in the show must be aged 18 years or older.

Show length

Timings can vary, but typically the show runs up to 90 minutes. This includes full-audience participation routines, routines with volunteers on stage and routines with volunteers who are seated in the audience. Due to the nature of audience participation shows, timings may vary depending on how responsive the volunteers are.
