I often get asked, "what is the weirdest thing that has ever happened in a show of yours"?

I'm not sure if this is the 'weirdest', but it definitely is up there in the top 5 shocking things for my shows.

I've done this routine hundreds of times and never has anything like this happened.

Check it out. enjoy!

Its funny you mention this. I just did a show Saturday night and had one person that was not working well after the first warm up skit and I was going to release him after I reinduced him. I had given the instructions that everyone was glued to their chairs and their chairs were glued to the floor. I was putting everyone back in with the sleep gun. The next to last guy was a big guy so I pulled out the sleep shotgun on him for theatrics.

I figured I would just use the sleep shotgun on the last guy as well ( he was the one I was going to send back into the audience ), he flew back like someone getting shot in a Hollywood movie and flipped the chair over landing head first on the stage. Fortunately, the stage has thin carpeting to give some cushion so he turned out okay.

Immediately after I got him up, reinduced, told him he was going to sit in his chair and have a fun time watching from the audience, released and walked him out to his chair. I get back up on stage grab my mic and say to the people he was with:" Remember, tomorrow morning when he wakes up and has a headache, it IS just a hangover. " and then gave them the thumbs up with a nod and a wink like they are supposed to be in on an evil plot with me. They started ordering him booze like it was going out of style and the girlfriend said " Don't worry, we got your back!!" -Shane

On another night, I have the show going and I got things going good. After about 5 or 6 skits, I pull out a fake $100.00 bill and throw it on the stage and tell the people if they can get to it, they can have it. Of course I tell them it is real. And I have also given them the stuck command.

There was a gentleman in the audience that night that found some sort of admiration for me and goes to all my shows within the area. I found out he is known in the area for selling.... "stuff". This is his favorite part of the show. He sees these people struggling and screams out he will double the offer if they can get to it. Of course they can't.

Four or five shows later, he must have sampled too much of the "stuff" he sells. He was a little beligerant and a little more...boisterous (sp?) than usual. He sarted screaming for the hundred dollar bill trick as soon as the induction is done. At this point he was getting pretty demanding. I am not someone's stage monkey.

I knew they weren't deep enough. He screams for it one more time and says " I will give someone $200 if they can get the money. " I didn't even have to pull my fake money out, he sends his " girlfriend " up the aisle and has her lay $200 on the stage. So, I oblige him.

I gave the command they were all stuck...blah blah......and low and behold, 2 people out of 11 came flying up out of their chairs.... and this one girl was ninja quick. She nabbed the money faster than you could imagine. The dude about crapped his pants. I know he didn't have to work hard for it..... and I thought it made it that much more funny when you seen the other 9 people get upset since they couldn't get up. And of course, its not my money.

He left that night and thought I seen the last of him. Nope, he came to the next one. Wanted to know why it didn't work. I told him why. He shuts up now, but, still loves me for some reason.-Shane
