"Your program was so enjoyable that for the first time, it made me think entertainment should definitely be part of our conference. Thanks for a really amazing show!"

I was amazed at your ability to capture the attention of your audience. You are truly the Trance-Master! As a AAEH (The Association to Advance Ethical Hypnosis) Past President and Certified Hypnotist, with many years of experience, I can truly say that I have never seen such thrilling and energetic stage hypnosis as you have performed it. You are truly gifted and talented

John, I want to thank you for the phenomenal show you put on at my daughters college during their fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The kids are still talking about it weeks later. To see 20+ kids all lined up in chairs, all in a trance is a sight to behold. While there was nothing you had these kids do that was distasteful, it was hilarious; and just watching you perform was a show in itself. Who would think that this many people could really be put in a hypnotic trance at the same time? This is probably the 5th or 6th time I have seen you perform, and like fine wine, you get better with age. Thanks again. You can count on my recommendation whenever possible.

Dear John: We're still recuperating from your amazing performance. It's a week later and kids are still buzzing about it. You really made our weekend a success. Thanks so much for your great show. They loved the segment where they forgot their homework and had to come up with excuses for the teacher. Thanks!

John, Thank you for a wonderful show. Your showmanship and professionalism were outstanding as you entertained our guests under the trying conditions of an outdoor pool party. Our guests had a wonderful time.
Hi John--It was a great show! People that cancelled coming to my husband?s 40th Birthday Party are hearing all about it and regretting not being there. I have not watched the video yet. My whole family will get together this weekend to watch it. We will be sending you a DVD of the show tomorrow. Thanks Again,
Hey John, We met at the convention this weekend, it's Matt. We are def. interested in your act at the college and will forward your flyer to our student activities department. But the reason for this email, was a great interest in the copy of the tape from the show at the convention. It was hysterical. You put on "the best damn show". So E-mail me back with price info., and video tape pick up arrangements. Sincerely, Your Fan, Matt
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for a job well done. The members of Alpha Phi Delta Fraternity gained valuable leadership advice from our wonderful afternoon motivational program. Furthermore, many of the members enjoyed your delightfully funny Hypnosis Stage Show. The show was entertaining, and with your show routines tailored to Alpha Phi Delta, it was very easy for the members to relate to. I look forward to inviting you to our leadership and business meetings in the future. Thank you once again.

John was a wonderful act, a tremendous person with whom to work, and a great success. The students really liked him. I have had really great feedback. Furthermore, I was delighted to work with you privately to quit smoking the following day and . . . I have not smoked nor had the desire to smoke in anyway!!!! Thank you for helping me to live longer!
Thank you very much for your wonderful performance this past Sunday. We all enjoyed your show very much, and I am greatly looking forward to receiving the video so we can all get together and watch it for a second time. I have created a section in my notebook with all of your information so that next year's Director of New Members can contact you. Thank you for assisting in creating the best ?Bid Day? Delta Gamma Sorority at the University of Florida at has ever had!
John, I just wanted to let you know that I just got home and already have messages from some of the girls. They loved your show! They are still laughing about it and I?m really happy with the success of the evening. You were a pleasure to work with. I will definitely be telling my friends about you.
Thanks again. We'll be in touch
Thank you for helping to make our first event a huge success! The show was great, full of energy, and received very highly by the audience. This was a perfect show for both college and high school students. We appreciate you putting together such a wonderful performance on such short notice and also customizing the show for us. Whenever we need a hypnotist again, we will be happy to hire you!
John, I just wanted to thank you SO much for the two shows that you performed for us these past few weeks! Aside from the fact that the kids had an amazing time, we truly were able to recognize the difference in quality and ability between you and other stage hypnotists. There was no comparison that your show was in a different ballpark completely as far as quality, entertainment and most importantly enjoyment than the other show!
Your professionalism in caring about adhering to the strict rules and limitations of running a show for an orthodox group was greatly appreciated as I saw that it stemmed from a true care about each and every participant both of the show and the audience! Thank you so much for putting on one of the most entertaining things these 6th, 7th & 8th graders AND our staff of college-aged students have seen in their entire lives! I would recommend you again in a second without thinking twice! Thanks once again!
Thank you so much for the wonderful show that you provided our students last evening. The school is buzzing about the fun that our students have and some the thing that they did while Hypnotized. Our new Beauty Queen is getting a lot of ribbing but ?he? is enjoying the fun. I also want to thank you for providing a taping of the show. This is a wonderful surprise for us and will allow me an opportunity to show the students who were Hypnotized what happened during their sleep. It is also valuable to me for my archives of activities on campus. I have no doubt that you and your stage show will be seriously considered in the future to come back to our College. One last thing I must say. I have dealt with numerous speakers and entertainers since I took this position in Student activities. You are by far the easiest entertainer to work with ? your needs were simple and your demands few. Thank you!
Thank you very much for an awesome show. People are still talking about it now. I'm definitely remembering things, but not everything. I can't wait to see the video. You were awesome and superb to us and to everyone there. We really appreciate it. Again, thanks for everything. It was a wonderful show, at least that's what I'm being told. Now I can say that I have been hypnotized and it worked. Have a great day!!!! We will be working again in the future!
John: We can?t thank you enough for your incredible program! Everyone was thrilled with your performance!
We greatly appreciated all the time you took to insure it was the very best possible. Everyone will be talking about your show for a long time. Don?t hesitate to call if you ever need a referral. Thank you, You were terrific!

I just wanted to thank you so much for your wonderful performance for our group! Everyone enjoyed it and you were a tremendous help to me. And honestly, if I can ever do anything for you, all you have to do is ask. I think you are a terrific performer. I just cannot thank you enough! Sincerely, you were a hit and we all appreciate the entertainment that you provided for us and for our guests. Thank you again ? and many times over ? for not only being a great performer but also for being so accommodating to work with. I am most willing to be added as one of your testimonials!
Thank you so much for a wonderful night. The members are still talking about your performance well into the weekend games. Those that missed the meeting are upset and demanding we re-book you. I would have written sooner, but it is hard to type when you are laughing. If anyone is considering booking you for their event, please pass on my recommendation. Outstanding performance! Truly a night to remember! Thanks again, I am sure we will be seeing each other again.

John: I attended your show on here at TAMU-CC. I have never been hypnotized before so I wanted to see if it was "real." Well it was! It took a great deal of concentration and the ability to let your body be free. After the session I guess you would call it I was very relaxed but not tired. I am a testament that being hypnotized can be a real thing if you just let your body free. If you have any more questions please let me know. Did you have a good time? Yes! Did your friends in the audience have a good time? Boy did they and they're still having a great time reminding me of everything! Did you feel great after being Hypnotized? I felt very relaxed & wonderful!

Thank you so much John! Your show was a hit. The audience had a blast. Quite a few of them came up to me after the show and in the following days and told me how much fun they had. One of the guys said that he had not laughed that much in a long time. It was an unconventional and innovative way for the I. C. A. to recruit. We just had our weekly meeting and we had an increase in member attendance as well as new members.
I can?t thank you enough John!

Thank you so much for your amazing performance at Georgetown University. Your show was a great kick-off to the school year; we have never had a hypnotist who was so engaging and entertaining, yet educational at the same time! I look forward to working with you year after year!
Hi John ~ I wanted to say how much we are looking forward to having you back with us this year. You work so well with the students whether it is in the large group setting or with individuals who ask you questions. Your performance is upbeat and professional -- it is a great experience for the students to work with you. Thanks again for sharing your time and talents with the students here at Little Flower High School.

John, You did a great job! The students are still raving about it. I will have them send you some feedback. Thanks!

?On behalf of the Brooklyn Cyclones Baseball Club, I would like to personally thank you for putting on a wonderful post game hypnosis show. We all enjoyed your show very much and will keep you on file for any possible dates for the 2006 season. From an event organization perspective you were very thorough and the show ran with ease. This is especially important when planning an event in front of 8,000+ fans and doing in-between inning stints. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to the next.

Thank you again for helping out at the 2004 Relay for Life at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School. You are an amazing entertainer and both the students and adults were amazed at how you were able to hypnotize so many people! The Relay was a great success, and we were able to raise over $100,000 which was donated to the American Cancer Society in the hopes of finding a cure for cancer. We thank you again and hope that you will come back next year! (The 2005 show raised $110,000!)

Thank you for the hilarious hypnosis show you gave News Corporation employees for the holiday ?Lunch and Laugh? (as opposed to our regular Lunch and Learn? seminars on serious topics) ? all good clean fun that everyone enjoyed enormously. In the New Year we anticipate inviting you to return to do some serious hypnotizing to help people quit smoking. Sincerely
– Ted E. & Jan R.
Mr. John Cerbone, "The Trance Master" really lived up to his name and then some in the performance he gave to our young adults. The show was filled with energy, life, and flat out amazing stuff that kept everybody excited for a full hour and a half, yet it felt like 15 minutes!! We all didn't want the show to end. John was so co-operative and easy to work with. He complied with all of our organizations religious policies no questions asked. I would recommend John for any corporate, school or social event for all ages. A true master in his field! Looking forward to working with him again.
