Hey I'll show you mine if you show me yours! LOL

Try out http://youtube.com/jonchase

Just a few videos on there.

I'm sorry but I don't understand the difference between hallucinations. One is exactly the same as any other.

I disagree about the numbers, I usually get them down to four or five and make the comedy tight, controlled and less chaotic than having 30 people running around half of whom are not really worth it. Too much like hard work. As for letting them decide what's funny or what to do or say, well mostly I don't. I'm the professional entertainer not them, it's my show not theirs. They *** well do what I tell them to. ;-)

I used to faf around in hope of good subjects but found, after 20 years of shows, that it was down to me to produce the goods, not chance or applied psychology. I recently did a 2 and a half hour show in a theatre with two guys and got a sitting ovation.

Still, your style is doubtless excellent. Could we see some of it?

Numbers for stage 7-8 good subjects with three-four excellent ones. I agree with you on that point. However there are times with additional bodies can make for a good skit. On the HMV edinburgh festival clip you will see a riverdance scene. Everybody added to that scene to make the funnies volunteer that night even funnier.

You might not get the real impression from that angle but the speed and the body posture across that stage was really impressive as well as funny. Something I couldn't script.

Usually use one or two who are the funniest. And although I "tell them what to do" I do it within a framework that allows for their "trance personalities" to develop. The funniest moments I find come from their own exageratted reactions something I can't tell people to do. But can only promt and facilitate.

the bottom video is a good example of letting something develop.

For the record I've done a 2 hour stage hypnosis theatre show with 2 guys. Quality not quantity.
