For many years, people who performed hypnotism as entertainment called themselves “stage hypnotists.” Then, there was a movement toward the term “comedy hypnotist.” It was part of an effort to re-brand the art form from the old vaudeville days–when hypnosis was portrayed more as a mystical event, mysterious and even spooky–to a more modern experience of light-hearted hilarity.

College opening week can be overwhelming for many students, especially those who are starting college for the first time.

Across the United States, colleges and universities open up during the last two weeks of August and the first week of September. I’ve had years where I’ve done eighteen shows in that twenty-one day period. It’s busy and demanding, and a lot of fun.
There are a lot of hypnotists out there, today. More than you would think. Many of them are good at what they do. Many more are not good at what they do. How do you choose a stage hypnotist?
