The business side of hiring Paul Knight for our annual Halloween party was very professional. In the time leading up to the performance, he went over all the details, types of shows, set up options, etc. He was always available to discuss any ideas or concerns. The performance was phenomenal! He was very clear about what the hypnosis process would entail, and made the volunteers feel very comfortable. He was also great about changing from an "R" rated show to "PG13" at the last minute. His comedic timing was great, and he engaged the crowd into the show. Many of our guests did not believe that hypnosis really works, but they definitely left as believers! If you have the inclination to hire Paul for a party, business function or other get together, do not hesitate! A splendid time was had by all!
Paul was so entertaining and did a wonderful job.

Length of a Performance:

All ages, but the best volunteers are usually over 12 years old. The best show consists of an equal mix of men and women, but unisex shows can be performed. Minimal drinking makes for the best show.

Chairs for the subjects. About one chair for every eight people in the audience or about 12-18 per 100 people, to a maximum of about 24. A cordless microphone is needed if the room is large. Paul Knight can provide his own sound system if one is not available. All other material will be provided. A stage is preferred, but not necessary.
Shows range from mild to wild. Shows can be "G" (suitable for all ages, most high schools) through "PG" (many corporate shows) to "PG-13" (universities) and "R" (comedy clubs).
