What is a Comedy Hypnosis Show?

At a comedy hypnosis show, the stage comes alive with laughter, amazement, and a dash of the extraordinary. Picture this: volunteers from the audience stepping into the spotlight, their minds guided into a hypnotic trance by the hypnotist. And then, the magic unfolds. These willing participants become the stars of the show, dancing, singing, and performing uproarious routines.



How Much Can You Earn?

The sky truly is the limit. Beginners can expect to start at $200–$500 per show, depending on the venue, their marketing assets, and the area. Seasoned pros will make from $1500 to $2500 and much more. Stage Hypnotists can leverage their experience and prestige to add Motivational Speaking gigs, create hypnosis recordings, and, with further training, offer hypnotherapy sessions.

As in all entertainment, you are an entrepreneur and will spend a great deal of your time and energy working to get gigs. You may end up getting booked by agencies later on, but most work will come from your hustle, motivation, and drive.

His performance started at 3 a.m.; our teens were tired, had been up early the morning prior, went through graduation and a long grad party night.
