The Doug T. Hypnosis Show is Coming to Waterloo
Hypnosis has been around for literally thousands of years, going back to mankind’s earliest recorded history. It has been used throughout the centuries as a means of improving health and well-being, and has also been a source of some pretty provocative controversy. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the work of Franz Mesmer (as in, “mesmerize”) paved the way for the practice of hypnosis as we know it today.
Modern-era psychologists and psychiatrists began to use hypnotism in their practices, as the idea became more acceptable to the mainstream establishment. Even though hypnotism seemed to work wonders for people seeking to kick an old habit or uncover issues locked away in their memory, the practice developed a rather shady reputation. Stage hypnotists who used hypnosis for fun and entertainment were suspected of employing unethical mind-control techniques and even accused of dabbling in the dark arts in order to gain power over their helpless subjects.
As our understanding of brain science has evolved, we now know hypnotism is real. And we know it doesn’t involve mind-control or magic, dark or otherwise. It’s simply a different state of consciousness, and it must be entered into willingly. So, if you’re a little nervous about the whole idea, not to worry. You simply can’t be hypnotized unless you actually want to be.
Doug T. is a veteran stand-up comic who has worked with some of the best in the business, touring with acts such as Pauly Shore and the cast of “Impractical Jokers.” Eventually, Doug decided he wanted to take his own act to the next level. He wanted to give audiences something entirely different than the run-of-the-mill comedy show. So he began to study the principles and practice of hypnotism. The result of these efforts is his own brand of Comedy Hypnotism that’s fun, fascinating, and gut-bustingly hilarious.
Doug’s show is unlike anything else, and we couldn’t be more excited to have it in our lineup of incredible entertainment. Fast and funny, Doug keeps his audience in awe. Non-stop comedy, dead-on impressions, and mind-bending hypnotism make this a performance unlike any other. You’ll be talking about this show for a long time to come. But don’t worry about being forced to do something you’ll regret in the morning. This raucously fun evening doesn’t come at the cost of your compromised dignity. Doug T. maintains a mantra of respect toward every audience volunteer who sets foot on his stage.
