Great job, Mark! Everyone enjoyed you as our hypnotist! Sharon O, Minneapolis, MN, 5/1/2012
Thanks so much Mark Anthony! The kids had a great time at post prom!! Fun for all!
Unfortunately Mr. Anthony didn't perform for us due to a family health emergency. We are praying for his father and his family. My only wish was that he would have been able to contact me sooner but illness doesn't have a time schedule. :(
I had to put something in the rating - but it isn't a true factor since we didn't get to see his show.
Mark Anthony played music for our grand march and for our dance at prom. His playlist was perfect, and he had the kids dancing all night long! He also did our hypnotist show for post prom, and he had the audience laughing as he hypnotized about 15 individuals and had them doing humorous, but clean, activities that pleased both adults and teenagers alike. He was well worth the price as he charges considerably less than many hypnotists, and he does a great job!
Ashby Post Prom
We couldn't have been happier with what Mark Anthony did at our show! We had a show at a local bar/club and we laughed the entire show! Thanks for the memories--we will have you back!
We hired Mark Anthony the hypnotist for our post prom party and he did a wonderful job! It was a very fun, but clean show for our students! We would highly recommend.
What to Expect
My show will be fun and can be anywhere from a G rating to a PG-13 rating. I don't have to use profanity to have fun. This show i good for the entire family. I will put my "subjects" under and then have them do wild and crazy stunts or acts! Such as driving a car at NASCAR, racing a horse in the Kentucky Derby, being on a wild ride at Valley Fair, thinking the person next to them "stinks", eating an ice cream cone, thinking that they are naked in front of everyone,and much more!

Mark left KSAX to become chief meteorologist at KDSM in Des Moines, IA and KGAN-TV in Cedar Rapids, IA. While there, his wife, Tracey, lost both of her parents. One positive thing did come out of the loss, however, in that Mark's brother and Tracey's sister are now married after some matchmaking done by Tracey and Mark. The two are living happily ever after in Brooten on a hobby farm. As a result, Mark and his wife wanted to get back to Minnesota to be near family.
