Last Friday, we had a wonderful time performing the HAPPY HYPNOMIND 樂在催眠 comedy hypnosis show at the Live Comedy Club Taipei (http://www.comedy.com.tw/node/309) and much fun was had by all. The show was indeed a lot of fun. We had more volunteers than fit on the stage, so I added a chair to the side for the extra guy. As far as responders go, the guys were mostly moderate but we have a female volunteer who really made the show as she was a very high responder and a lot of fun.
Chinese interpretation was provided by Lorraine Phillips (my wife who also happens to be an experienced professionally trained interpreter).
We didn't have a photographer or videographer at this performance but we did set the HD camera in the back on a stationary tripod and just left it running in hopes of catching some worthwhile footage.
Here are a few of the images culled from the HD footage . . .
Using the handclasp as a group induction, folks are getting snuggled down for the evening of hypnotic fun.
ONE DRINK TOO MANY?
It looks like someone's had jut one drink too many, hypnotic drink, that is.
SOBRIETY TEST GONE WRONG
She is having trouble touching her fingers to her nose as she gets drunker and drunker.
DRINKING FINGER FUN
I gave her a drinking finger of her very own. When she touches her forehead she feels drunker and drunker and she enjoyed the sensation as she popper herself in the head a few times.
See the complete gallery of three-hundred-seventy-nine images from this performance in the online album at http://public.fotki.com/briandavidphillips/hypnosis/shows/2009-07-24-hypnosisfun (enjoy).
In addition to photos, we've got a few clips from the show. It was a static camera so we don't have any zooms or the like, but we did manage to get a few clips.
DRUNKEN HYPNOSIS FUN
This young woman was wonderfully responsive and here she is getting pretty close to falling down drunk – although I specifically tell her that her legs will stay firm. She was an absolutely fun trance partner.
You can see the rest of the clips and more on my youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/briandavidphillips.
You can purchase DVDd for selected performances as well as hypnosis training DVDs, hypnosis CDs, and more through my online shop at http://www.briandavidphillips.net/store.
Folks who sign up for the Walkabout Trance Beach Resort Getaway (the improvisational speed street hypnosis event at http://www.walkabouttrance.com) and-or the Erotic Hypnosis seminar (the Engineering eXperiential Erotic Ecstasy seminar at http://briandavidphillips.net/category/eroticatrance/) in August will be learning variations of these patterns and more. Please note, that it's actually to your advantage to sign up for both events (they are scheduled together for your convenience). However, it's to your advantage to sign up early to reserve your opportunity to attend. I don't travel to the US very often and likewise teach these courses very infrequently so this is a unique opportunity for folks to have an amazing experience with us.
All the best,
