I have been a comedy hypnotist for college orientations for many years. Without a doubt, orientations season is one of the busiest times for me as hypnosis shows are widely popular during this time. In this post I would like to highlight a few reasons to book a comedy hypnotist for college orientations.
- great ice breaker
Being a freshmen at a college is not easy, you don’t know anyone and sometimes it’s hard to meet people. I have had conversations with quite a few orientation leaders. As a matter of fact they have mentioned how great hypnosis show is for ability of students to meet each other and find new friends. Typically, during the show a hypnotist has a group of students on stage that are hypnotized. The audience gets to watch these participants throughout the show and have a great time. After the show it’s so much easier for students to meet each other and have conversations based on common memories/ experiences.
- students become stars of the show
When I perform my hypnosis show I make the hypnotized participants stars of the show. It’s very important to make a hypnosis experience positive. Most certainly, a hypnosis show is not about the performer, it’s about the participants as they play the most important role during the performance. Many times after the show the hypnotized students are recognized and acknowledged by their colleagues in a positive way.
- flexibility on performance areas
Depending on the school, I have performed my comedy hypnosis show in different areas. A lot of times college orientation shows take place in big school theaters, sport arenas or ballrooms. In fact, I have even performed my show outside and it was extremely successful. One of the great reasons to host a comedy hypnotist for college orientations is a fact that the show could be done almost anywhere. With that being said, it’s much easier to plan an event and have a peace of mind knowing that location on campus can change should the planning committee need it.
- engaging performance
The key to a successful hypnosis show is to be able to not only work with hypnotized people on stage, but also being able to engage the entire audience. I have implemented an interactive element to my show allowing the audience to participate throughout the show. This definitely keeps the show energy very high.
- rare unique experience
Last, but definitely not least, having a comedy hypnotist for college orientations is a pretty unique experience for everyone. Some students have seen a hypnosis show at a high school, but the percentage of them is very small. Most of the time, seeing or participating at a hypnosis show during orientations is a first time experience. Before the show, a lot of students do not even know what to expect. The unknown factor definitely creates an excitement and thrill for the audience. A hypnosis show creates an unforgettable event for students and have them keep great memories years after.
