Viva Hypnosis’ Becomes The First Comedy Hypnosis Show in 23 Years At The Leicester Comedy Festival

Dates: 16th February 2017. Venue: The Y Theatre in Leicester

Back in December 2016, Eminent Stage Hypnotist, Simon Warner become the first Comedy Stage Hypnotist to perform in the West End in London in 15 years. Now Simon is set to bring the UK’s first and (currently the world’s) only full-production Comedy Hypnosis show direct to Leicester Comedy Festival.  

Viva Hypnosis’ will become the first Comedy Hypnosis Show to appear at the festival in it’s 23 year history, following highly successful shows all over the world including, Las Vegas, The Caribbean, London, Orlando, The Liverpool Comedy Festival and sell-out shows at the world’s biggest arts Festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Definitely not your ‘ordinary’ hypnosis show, audience members can expect to be transported to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas, where they have the opportunity to become the stars of the show.

On this exhilarating and hilarious hypnotic journey down the Las Vegas strip, audience members will hear spooky stories of creepy dummies in abandoned casinos, see what happens when aliens invade the Las Vegas Strip and witness volunteers replacing the cast of a top Vegas show for the night…

Throughout his career, Simon has hypnotised over 5,000 people all over the world, combining comedy, hypnotism and technology to produce all singing, all dancing, all immersive shows.

Simon’s passion is to make a very distinct departure from ‘traditional’ comedy hypnotism, adding in a cacophony of production value, including an entire crew of dancers and bringing a wealth of knowledge, skills and sense of humour in order to create a fresh new, innovative, interactive and of course, hilarious hypnotic form of entertainment.

Audience members are taken to a world where anything and everything is possible – including mass hilarity – all through the power of hypnosis. All this is set to a stomping score of hand-clapping, feet-tapping, sing-along tunes, dazzling lights and a set of mesmerising full-stage visuals.

Described as ‘Redefining Comedy Hypnotism’ by The British Comedy Guide, there’s no eating onions and definitely no clucking like a chicken, the laughter comes from the interaction between the volunteers and with Simon on their hypnotic journey down the Las Vegas strip!

Nobody is coerced to take part and audience members can choose how they want to experience the show; whether they sit back, relax and enjoy the experience as a spectator, or take part and revel in being one of the stars on stage for the night

Simon says, “I am extremely excited to be bringing ‘Viva Hypnosis’ to Leicester for it’s Midlands debut. We chose The Leicester Comedy Festival to premier Viva Hypnosis in the Midlands as we had huge success at last year’s Liverpool Comedy Festival, so we thought we’d make a beeline for the UK’s biggest and most prestigious Comedy Festival.

Viva Hypnosis is a fun, entertaining and genuinely funny night out for everyone; whether you choose to take part or not and I hope that Leicester audiences are as excited by the show as we all are about bringing it to them.”

We guarantee you have never seen a hypnosis show quite like this…and we’re sure you’ll be talking and laughing about your Viva Hypnosis experience for years to come…Get ready for the most exhilarating and hilarious hypnotic ride of their lives.

Viva Hypnosis runs at The Y Theatre, 16th February 2017. Tickets can be purchased here.

Praise for Viva Hypnosis

British Comedy Guide

“Redefining Comedy Hypnosis”

★★★★ SGFringe
“If you have ever wondered what it’s like to be hypnotised on stage then this show is probably one of the best chances you’ll ever get. I could hear audience members in stitches. Incredibly funny.”

★★★★ The Mumble
“It was as if the angel of ethereality was fencing with the devil of cynicism on my shoulders while this full-power cabaret show was exploding round my senses. A quite curious evening that has left me with a thoroughly recommendable ‘I’ve enjoyed myself’ after-taste.”
