Dr. Brent Paterline comedy hypnosis show is family friendly entertainment that is simply hilarious. The show is a fast-paced, entertaining blend of comedy and hypnosis, featuring the hidden talent of your audience. Volunteers from the audience are hypnotized in an extremely relaxed, safe, and non-aggressive manner while the audience is entertained by the entire process.
Once hypnotized, volunteers are taken on a hypnotic journey where they become the stars of the show. Dr. Paterline utilizes the participants’ imagination and creativity to create hilarious and amazing situations. Participants may travel to distant places, become celebrities like Elvis, impersonate cartoon characters, or speak alien. Since each person is unique, no two shows are ever the same.
The performance never oversteps the boundaries of good taste, ensuring that the audience laughs with the participants, not at them. The show is enhanced with digital music and sound effects with multiple skits and routines all happening at once. It a superb performance filled with intrigue and laugher!
