What an out standing show! And what a pleasure it was to work with Richard. I was in charge of booking entertainment for our annual year end awards dinner. Richard had the our entire audience and staff laughing hysterically. Even my boss was impressed with the quality of Mr. Barker's show. Without hesitation I will definitely hire him again.
Response from Incredible Hypnotist:
it was so much fun and thank you for the invite
Richard Barker is Incredible! If you are looking to really WOW your guest at your next event, this show is a must!! I worked with Richard on a holiday party and he had our guest laughing the entire night! His participants are selected straight from the audience which sets a personal feel to the event. The combination of hypnotist, comedy show and DJ was well put together, their timing on everything was perfect, not a beat missed! My favorite part was when he hypnotized the participants into thinking a belt was really a snake, the participants went crazy jumping off the stage! It was hilarious, I don't think I have ever laughed so hard! Your guest will walk away with a story they will be talking about for years and years. This show also works great as an ice breaker for corporate events, it is exciting and different and I guarantee your guest will absolutely love it!
Richard's show is unforgetable! The two hours flew by and my cheeks hurt from laughing when it was over. He is both entertaining and engaging and his act is a must see...if the opportunity to see him presents itself, grab it!
Our company hired the Incredible Hypnotist for a Corporate Company event. He was extremely entertaining and everyone had a fabulous time. A night we won't soon forget! Highly recommend!!
Richard Barker truly is an incredible hypnotist and his show will have you laughing out loud and leave you spellbound and thirsting for more. You will be kept on the edge of your seat as you never know what his performers (straight from the audience) will do once they've fallen under his spell, including speaking Martian and Japanese - (translators also emerge from the audience/cast at Richard's command and translate without missing a beat) . Richard makes hypnotism looks effortless, as he has evidently mastered the craft. This show is not only a brilliant time, but also contains elements of hypnotherapy geared toward important areas such as quitting smoking. A must see for all! I plan to attend the next event at the SAK Comedy Lab at the CityArts Factory in Orldando on May 19, 2011. An exquisite opportunity - not to be missed!

What to Expect
A Hypnosis Stage Show is an interactive show and best presented to any sized audience but generally, the larger the audience, the better the Hypnosis show will be. It can be a “stand-alone” entertainment piece or combined with our Disc Jockey service so guests can dance to the DJ before or after the event.
Richard supplies all his own props and he also supplies his own sound system.
Immediately before the show, specific music is played to settle, yet excite the audience – and at show-time a pre-recorded fanfare announcement fills the venue. Master Hypnotist Richard Barker appears on stage and gives an informative and entertaining presentation on what the audience has come to experience – HYPNOSIS!
After several interactive demonstrations of imagination and suggestion in harmony, Richard himself recognizes and chooses those volunteers who are most suitable to be hypnotized, to participate in the show. Show length varies from one hour for a short show, to two hours for a full show. For a full show, a break half way through is taken – but really it’s an extension of the show, because Richard follows the participants back to their seats or tables where close-up Hypnosis is performed inches from their friends and family. Seeing is believing!
When the show is finally over and the participants have returned from their imaginative state to reality, they have had all the restorative benefits equivalent to a full night’s sleep and are feeling great!
