Hello to all who practice the Art of Hypnosis and frequent this website,

I have read through some interesting ideas that are posted in this forum. It is quite wonderful to witness how amazing and diverse everyones backgrounds and levels of expertise are here.

Starting out with a bang, here's my first curiosity. In your opinion: What makes an amazing show? Where did your personal best performance happen? When was it? How long was the show? How much was spontaneous vs. pre-planned? Did you realize during the show anything unique or special happening? What made the show "work"? Can you post a link to it? If yes, please do so. Thank you.

F.Y.I. Those who wish to know more about me and my hypnosis skills can visit: http://www.regalhypnosis.com
I teach Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy in Atlanta, GA and am interested in learning more about Stage Hypnosis.

There is an inherant problem with the premise. The idea behind being a pro is that the vast majority of the time you turn in that show. It may be a once in a lifetime experience for the audience, but for the pro it was Tuesday.

I have done over 250 shows a year for better than 10 years. Hopefully the vast majority of them are as described.

I am not trying to be snarky but it really should be great a large portion of the time right? It should not be an anonoly.

I have to agree with Danny.
But one show does stand out. I wasn't the hypnotist. Barry Sinclaire was. He did a three hour show, and he had two points in it that made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. He did a brilliant age regression with a man being brought back to his death in the trenches during the first world war. And he did one piece where he gave an off-stage gesture, and everyone on-stage (they could not see him) jumped simultaneously.
It was funny and freaky at the same time. A great show.

Tony, you may add just a glorious moment if you cannot paraphrase an entire show. What type of routines have worked for you?

It's nice to meet one of the local clowns too. Hmm...I dunno who's got the talent here, but I am not very impressed yet.

Wow. Could it be that nobody cares if they impress you or tries to?

I had a discussion with Todd Robbins a few months back. We were just talking about how the pro talks about what goes wrong, and the rest brag about triumph. Reason being is that the tendency is to talk about the unusual. Failure is unusual for the pro, and not so much for the others. It is unusual for things to go well.

But then again I guess none of us have talent.

What a load of crap. People talk about what is pertinent to the conversation whether positive or not. Some of you on here really come across as pretentious fools. MP is particularly rude.

I GUESS I FOUND THE RIGHT KEY WORD "TRIUMPH", OR YOU LIKE TO USE MINE.

Reason being is that the tendency is to talk about the unusual.
THAT WHICH IS UNIQUE, ODD OR DIFFERENT TENDS TO HAVE NORE EFFECT THAN THAT WHICH IS USUAL OR COMMONPLACE. A NUGGET OF WISDOM SHARED. THANK YOU FOR THAT.

Failure is unusual for the pro, and not so much for the others.
THAT'S A GOOD THING. AFTER GAINING EXPERIENCE, IT'S WISE TO USE IT.

It is unusual for things to go well.
NOW THAT MIND SET CAN BE IMPROVED UPON, IMO.

But then again I guess none of us have talent.
PERHAPS YOUR OPINION IS A LIMITED POV. LET'S SEE WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY.

Its that kind of attitude and grilling that stops anyone wanting to answer.

There is plenty of info on here for free already if you take the time to search you will have enough to last you for months. Much of it was gained by years studying and performing and in many cases it cost some of us a lot of money hard work trial and error to gain. And it is shared freely on here.

Perhaps you want to go on a paid course with someone. You certainly need to show some respect for those that share on here. Instead of expecting anyone to give you answers to what comes over very arrogant posts on here.

The caps were used to separate the text, no other reason. You guys are getting so emotional over nothing. Don't sweat the small stuff. I am not looking for tips. I am just curious to know about your personal best performances and would like to see a link to view them. If impressed enough with an entertainer's work and training is offered, perhaps then lessons are in order. Who's got the shameless audacity to post first and demonstrate some talent?

Yikes, I guess I can start this off since everyone else is so shy. I have no video content, but got a few laughs from a few B of A employees who I entertained a couple of years ago in a classic bar room setting. Did not have a routine in mind, just spontaneously created a few bonding moments with two male subjects and a few women in the group. The highlights I remember included getting the guys all riled up and them having the women intervene, like family members with an attitude. That went over well, but I never followed up to do a show. Didn't have any training for stage hypnosis until last year when I did an introductory workshop with NGH trainers Tom and Jerry. Got hold of an Ormond McGill training video presentation shortly afterwards, yet I am still in search of more ideas here. One day soon I plan to get a show together. I am looking for some inspiration and others to learn from.

Nobody is being emotional, just resisting giving free routines and information to a newbie.

So in reality your not an experienced stage hypnotist, but rather someone with interest just getting into the waters who is asking for others with who do have more experience to tell you their own professional information that they have taken months and years to hone, tweak, and rework to it's best form, and share it with you any other newbie just for the asking?

I suggest to get the information and education you seek, you go out and attend as many live performances as you can. I have now seen over 80 live hypnosis shows of performers of all levels. This will help you see AND UNDERSTAND what you are asking for. This is the only true way to obtain this information.

I wouldn't expect to come on here, take the board by storm as a newbie and ask for, and expect seasoned performers to give up such information. This is happening more and more lately and is causing many pros to remain very quiet and ultimately not sharing or participating in their normal capacity to provide some great info...all in time (search Eshla's posts and you'll see exactly what I mean).
