Important Information

Read and understand before booking

What is this show?

This show is a 1-hour audience participation show where volunteers take part in a series of entertaining sketches whilst appearing to entranced and under the complete command of the hypnotist.

Is it 'real'?

The purported 'hypnotism' is effectively a magic trick created using conjuring techniques and psychological trickery.

How this is actually accomplished is a closely guarded secret, but reality is that this is an audience participation show - not actually a genuine demonstration of mind control or supernatural ability.

With that in mind - whilst the participants appear to be in a trance and completely under the control of the hypnotist - the reality is that participants are fully conscious and aware of their surroundings the entire time and are participate of their own free will.

Is it dangerous?

No, as this is effectively an elaborate magic trick, it is not dangerous at all.

What happens if people don't wish to take part or refuse to cooparate?

With all audience participation shows, the enthusiastic cooperation of the show's voluntary participants is critical to the success of the show and outwith the control of the performer. If there are not enough participants or the participants fail to follow instructions with enthusiasm, the show will suffer or may not be able to proceed at all and will still be chargeable.

Audience size

Whilst our hypnotism shows can work well with small audiences, larger audiences are preferred in order to create the right atmosphere and ensure that there would be enough voluntary participants. We can cater to events of up to 500 people.

For audiences of under 30 people, we also recommend John King's intimate magic shows instead.

Venue requirements

A stage or large performance area (such as a dancefloor), a seated audience, at least 6 chairs, a PA system and a wireless microphone is required. We can provide the PA and wireless microphone if required.

Age restrictions

Volunteers who participate in the show must be aged 18 years or older.

There are no age restrictions on viewing this show. The show content is aimed at being family friendly and is suitable for all to watch. However, please be aware that occasionally participants may swear or do random things on stage outwith the performers control.

Show length

Timings can vary, but the show length is approximately 1 hour. This is broken down into around 20 minutes of full-audience participation routines and around 40 minutes of routines with volunteers from the audience takeing part on the stage area. Due to the nature of hypnotism shows, timings may vary depending on how responsive the volunteers are.

Mobile Disco Upgrade

When purchaced alongside our mobile disco service, the lighting effects and react with the shows contents, helping to create an even more spectacular, immersive and theatrical experience. For example, when the hypnotised subects believe they are lying on a beach, the lights go yellow to simulate sunlight or when they believe they are band members, the lights react in time to the music.
