  • WAKING DREAMS HYPNOSIS (aka Hypno KOOL or Funny Hypnosis Show) – Family and General Audience Performances, comedy entertainment suitable for anyone, anywhere, anytime.
  • WALKABOUT TRANCE STREET HYPNOSIS – General Audience Street Hypnosis Style Performances, we take to the streets and do walkup and simple suggestion effects for your event.

When booking any flavor of the entertainment hypnosis show for your club, venue, event, or party, keep in mind that there are some basic requirements we have. Shows tend to be 60-90 minutes with or without Chinese interpretation (performance is in English). If you require interpretation, then you will want to plan on the longer show.

Pricing depends upon the type of show, nature of the event or venue, and the size of the expected audience as well as whether or not interpretation is required. Obviously, a hypnosis show requires a willing audience so make sure your guests know it’s a hypnosis show they are going to enjoy and make sure you do your job in getting them excited about volunteering and having a wonderful time. The show is interactive. Audience participation is required for a successful hypnosis show so we don’t make fun OF anyone but make certain to have fun WITH our guests on stage.

We will work with you to make your event a great success with just the right sort of hypnosis show for you and your guests.
