Hypnotic Comedy of Jim Kellner
Saturday, January 7, 7:00PM at Vail Theatre of the Arts
Doors open at 6:00PM
Drawing on his background in stand-up comedy, Jim's comedy hypnosis show for comedy clubs has become a wildly successful evening of entertainment. Jim is the ONLY comedy hypnotist to routinely headline the Pacific Northwest comedy clubs and is one of only a handful of Hypnotists to have EVER spoken on a TEDx stage.
With this show, the real star could possibly be you, a family member or friend. Who will volunteer?
The use of hypnosis under competent, professional medical or psychological supervision for the treatment of diseases or mental disorders is a medical question to be determined by competent authorities. Some people feel that they should not participate in hypnosis for purposes of demonstration or entertainment ---and for good cause--when a person submits to hypnotism, he surrenders part or all of his will to another person.
Some would suggest that he loses his free agency for the period of time he is hypnotized and perhaps for periods of time in the future should he be given posthypnotic suggestion at the time of his hypnosis. No one really realizes how powerful an influence or how unusual a phenomena a hypnotic trance is, and contrary to many current expressions by hypnotists, people can be made to do things under hypnosis that normally, morally, they would not do. Furthermore, it is difficult to realize how great the temptations are to a therapist when they have nearly total control of another human being.
This is not of concern to us in a public setting with over a hundred clean comedy lovers observing every action of the hypnotist as well as the participants.
We set the bar substantially high for our entertainment. We do not censer the talent that graces our stage. We let them know what we feel is acceptable and what is not appropriate for family friendly entertainment. This show, like all of our shows is guaranteed funny and promises no embarrassing moments with family and friends.
Bring your video capturing phone or camera--- be sure the battery is fully charged!! You will want to capture some of the craziness. Who knows-you might be picked out from the audience to be a star!!
