Hi guys,

Has there ever been a stage hypno show that wasn't comedy? Not one bit of it? If so what did it consist of?

And if there wasnt one, what displays of hypnosis would YOU put into it?

Thanks

Yes, some of the old time stage hypnosis shows were power plays. See the clip I have on youtube of "the Hypnotic eye"...
Richard De La Font, used to do a show, that although it was humorous in how the subject responded, was much more high drama than comedy. Fantastic stage hypnotist.
I have also been to show where the hypnotist thought he was funny, but clearly wasn't...

Most shows are there as Entertainment, give the people what they want, however, demonstrations strung together can be done to show Hypnotic Techniques and Hypnotic "Power" as a show.

Motivational hypnosis shows although still humouress could have a serious purpose - to actually change the behavior and beliefs of the audience..

I know a lot of mentalists use psuedo hypno bits in their show, but I was just thinking it would be so original to do a whole show based on this type of serious material... Now to pull it off the show would have to be gripping, and there in lies the challenge, write a show that can be gripping while being serious.... but I think IF you could do it, it would be amazing and you would be the only one out there doing it if you had a show like that but here's a thought that just came to me....

You know the way you have those "healers" out there who use suggestion to knock people out when he puts his hands on the subjects head to "heal" them? What if (along the lines of MP's post) someone did a show where he helped the audience empower themselves? That when they left the show the felt great because of a mass hypnosis event? And during the show he used powerful demonstrations of hypnosis to reinforce as convincers for the suggestions given in the mass hypnosis parts.

Just brain storming off the back of what MP said...
