What will happen next? Not even “The Terrys” can predict the outcome as they pull one hilarious skit after another out of their endless bag of tricks. From curtain open as Stokes takes the stage he sets the crowd at ease with his warmth and humor. While explaining what hypnosis is and isn’t, in an entertaining manner, the audience’s curiosity is piqued as they all participate in ‘suggestibility tests’ designed to awaken their awareness of the possibility that they too could experience this phenomenon and ultimately become the star of the show. Stokes, a master showman, asks for volunteers, and hands shoot in the air from those eager to participate. A lightning fast hypnotic induction follows and then the party begins. New, fresh, topical material added daily plus different people every show insures that you will never see the same show twice. Not just a show, but an entertainment experience! Book today!
