"My mission is to make a
difference for the better in the lives of people
using laughter, comedy, hypnosis and art.”

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring phenomenon that happens to each and every one of us every day. But because we don’t know this, we call it other things. For example, have you ever day dreamed or zoned out? That is hypnosis. Have you ever been driving, going from point A to point B but don’t remember the drive? This is called Highway Hypnosis. Hypnosis is your body’s way of giving you a stress break. Your conscious mind takes a little trip to Cleveland ( As Jerry Kein likes to say) and your more powerful subconscious mind takes over for a while. Think about how good you feel when you have been day dreaming…it is very restful.

When being hypnotized, you are simply lead to this restful state. I say lead, because this is something you allow, just like day dreaming. You can also choose not to go. You are in control.

Anyone of average intelligence can be hypnotized. All you have to do is focus and follow directions.

Hypnotists use the word sleep, but hypnosis is not sleep. Many times people believe they are not hypnotized because they associate it with being unconscious. This is not true. During hypnosis you will be alert and know everything that is going on around you. However you feel so good, you are free to express yourself as you see fit.

Hypnotized people will not do anything in a hypnotic state that goes against their morals, ethics or beliefs. A person who is hypnotized can take themselves out of trance at will. One also cannot get stuck in hypnosis. Just like when you are day dreaming, you can bring yourself out.

I have the greatest respect for the people that come onto my stage. I think they are generous, fun loving people and my goal is for them to have the best experience of anyone in the room. I want them to feel great and to leave wanting more. I actually fall in love with these folks. I myself have been in stage shows before, so I know what it is like and I take great care of my “stars”. My skits are respectful and fun for all.

After being hypnotized, a person will remember all they want to… when they want to remember. Sometimes people don’t remember much right after the experience. My personal belief about this is that people feel so great that they don’t want to lose that feeling and delay remembering because remembering is work.

When you are in the hands of experienced, respectful, fun loving hypnotist like myself, whether you are on the stage or off, you will have a great time. You may even find yourself laughing so hard that you beg for mercy.
