Hypnotist Show Cost

Hypnotist show cost is always the number one question by corporate event party planners.

Since event planning is expensive, the cost of a hypnotist show or any form of entertainment for that matter will be a major consideration.

Show costs depend on many factors, so Click Here For JimmyG’s Hypnotist Show Cost Quote

Budget For Your Hypnotist Show

The first thing to remember when hiring entertainment is that you must budget for it when planning your event. Do not leave it until the last minute as an afterthought.

This is where many event planners fall short. They book all the other amenities like food, decorations, and extras. Then realize they don’t have much money left over to cover the cost of professional entertainment like a stage hypnotist show.

Choosing A Hypnotist Show

The second thing to consider is that there are now hundreds of people, both men, and women, performing comedy hypnotist shows across North America.

This explosion of stage hypnotists began in the mid-2000s and has resulted in some very good comedy hypnotists and many not so good.

This is a key reason why hypnotist show costs vary. Professional full-time stage hypnotist entertainers generally charge much more than weekend hobby hypnotists.

Think of this as the difference between hiring a Bon Jovi tribute band or hiring the local weekend bar band. You’ll definitely get the WOW FACTOR with the professional act.

Different Hypnotist Show Fees

Another reason for the wildly different show costs is because the top comedy hypnosis shows are performed by seasoned entertainers.

Generally, low priced hypnotist shows are performed by hypnotherapists who perform hypnosis in clinical settings.

Or the low priced hypnotist is a beginner willing to perform for cheap at your expense to get more experience.

As mentioned before, show fees range from a couple of hundred dollars for a beginner hypnotist to several thousand dollars for a seasoned veteran comedy stage hypnotist who specializes in high end corporate events.

So what should you expect a hypnotist show to cost?

The big question you should really ask yourself is not “how much does a hypnotist show cost”. The better question is “how important is the success of your event?”

Consider this… Corporate or charity events can cost thousands of dollars to produce. Do you really want to place the success of your company Christmas party or conference on the cheapest hypnotist show you can find?

Professional event planners can expect to pay at least $1500 to $5000 or more for a quality, highly entertaining comedy hypnosis show experience.

Many factors like the type of event, location, travel and extra services ( keynote presentations, workshops, educational/motivational guest gift items like books, cds, etc) will dictate your hypnotist show entertainment cost.

Below is a breakdown of top notch professional hypnotist show costs.


  • Corporate Events – Up to $2500 – $5000 or more
  • Charity Events – Up to $1500 – $2500 or more
  • Fairs & Festivals – Up to $1000 – $2500 or more
  • College Events – Up to $1250 – $2500 or more
  • High School Post Prom, Grad Parties, Assemblies – $1000-$1750 or more
  • Home Parties – Up to $850-$1500 or more

These hypnotist show costs are generally for shows in the entertainer’s local area only. An accurate assessment of cost can only be determined with a personal, no obligation event consultation with your entertainer.

Keep in mind that most professional entertainers are willing to negotiate and work within your budget.

Additional Hypnotist Show Expenses

Additional show expenses may include travel costs, accommodations, and incidentals depending on the hypnotist you talk to.

Also, provincial or state taxes are typically added on top of the show fee.

Regardless of who you hire, at the end of the day, always remember… you get what you pay for. ūüôā

Are Comedy Hypnosis Shows Real – Hypnotist JimmyG Tells All

Comedy hypnosis shows are one of the most amazing entertainment experiences for most people who love a good laugh.
In fact, they are so memorable that people who have seen one as long as 20 years ago, will still remember how much fun it was to watch other people becoming hypnotized under a hypnotist’s spell and doing funny things.¬†With that begin said, most people today still wonder… are comedy hypnosis shows real?

That somehow, the hypnotist has either paid the hypnosis volunteers to do these funny things or that he brings them in by bus and has them act their way thru his or her hypnotist show. Well, nothing could be further from the truth!

Hypnosis is a natural phenomenon that each of us experiences every single day and automatically when we go to bed at night.

It’s called daydreaming or trance.¬†And all the hypnotist has to do is lead willing volunteers back into that natural state and they go into hypnosis.
So if you wonder, are comedy hypnosis shows real, it’s time to set the record straight.


Some people think that the Hypnotist hires people to play along with his suggestions. Here’s what would have to happen to pull that off.
The hypnotist would have to hire 10-20 people to be in his hypnotist show every night.
Even at $50 per person, that cost him $500-1000 dollars every night for wannabe actors to play along in his little hypnosis skits.
Also consider that if he had 10-20 friends to help him out at every show, he would still have to drive them from town to town, feed them and provide accommodations for everyone.

2nd Comedy Hypnosis Show Fact

When you see a comedy stage hypnotist show, you will notice that 10 to 20 people will be asked to volunteer to be in the show.
The comedy hypnotist may do a mind game test to see who will make the best subjects.
Once this takes place, you may notice that some people refuse to participate which is fine.
Any stage hypnotist who knows what he’s doing doesn’t want resistant people anyway. The hypnotist will be looking for people who are genuinely interested in experiencing the phenomena of hypnosis in a comedy stage show setting.
So doesn’t it make sense to realize that if everyone was “faking it”, they would play along with this part of the hypnosis show too?

3rd Comedy Hypnosis Show Fact

During the show, people will slump in their chairs when the stage hypnotist says “SLEEP!”

Grown women and men are naturally reserved when it comes to physical contact in public, and especially at a company Christmas party entertainment event. Yet you may see them peacefully leaning up against one another and resting their heads on the shoulder of someone beside them.
I doubt they would do this naturally for a whole 60-minute comedy hypnotist show if they weren’t hypnotized.

4th Comedy Hypnosis Show Fact

Imagine if you were at a hypnosis show and suddenly, your meek, shy friend, neighbor or family member suddenly started flying around the stage like a superhero and saving audience members from evil villains.
Or maybe a group of people you know suddenly lost their butts at the snap of the hypnotist’s finger and could no longer sit down on their chairs.
Can you explain that?

5th Comedy Hypnosis Show Fact

Some of the top professional comedy hypnotists do what is known in the stage hypnosis show industry as a “post-hypnotic suggestion”
What this means is that before the hypnotist wakes his hypnosis volunteers, he will give them a suggestion to do AFTER they are awake.
For instance, the hypnotist may say,¬† after you awaken, if you hear someone say “Peanut Butter”, you’ll clap your hands 3 times and yell out “Jam”.
The is proof positive that the comedy hypnosis show is real because the show is already over so there is no longer any requirement for anyone to keep “faking it”. ūüôā

When I get calls from clients who are looking for new and different party entertainment for events, I usually get asked,¬†How To Host A Successful Comedy Hypnosis Show?”

A lot of people have seen a¬†hypnotist show¬†before but all they really remember is that there were people on stage who went to “sleep”, then woke up and started doing funny things.

What they don’t see is the psychological set-up and planning that goes into making a¬†comedy hypnotist show¬†successful.

There are 5 processes that must occur for a comedy hypnosis show to end with a rousing standing ovation.

Hypnotist Comedy Show Process #1 that must take place starts weeks before the stage hypnotist even begins his amazing entertainment. And that is the promotion of the hypnosis show in the first place.

Since the general public still wonders if comedy hypnosis shows are real and are leary of hypnotists because they believe hypnosis is some kind of mind control, people must be informed well in advance that the entertainment at their event will be a hypnotist comedy show.

This allows people to get over the initial shock and surprise of the idea and begin to consider what it would be like to volunteer to be hypnotized in the hypnotist show.

Hypnotist Comedy Show Process #2 begins at the entertainment event where upbeat trance music may be played to get people into the right frame of mind. The hypnosis show stage will be already set with chairs lined up waiting for volunteers and banners showing the stage hypnotist displayed nearby for the audience to get acquainted with.

Hypnotist Comedy Show Process #3 begins with the carefully worded introduction of the comedy hypnotist. The MC will be given a prewritten introduction that contains certain phrases designed to put the audience at ease and build the authority of the hypnosis performer.  From there, the stage hypnotist will then take over and use humor as well as NLP (Nuero-Linguistic Langauge Patterns) to explain the hypnotist comedy show and entice the audience members to willingly volunteer to be in the comedy hypnosis show.

Hypnotist Comedy Show Process #4  is the selection of the hypnosis show audience volunteers. The comedy hypnotist will conduct several tests to discover who will make the best subjects and then invite those people to join him onstage to experience full trance hypnosis. Once enough volunteers are hypnotized, the stage hypnotist will then proceed to lead them thru a number of fun experiences which will create comedy by way of their personal reactions to these hypnotic situations.

Hypnotist Comedy Show Process #5 happens at the end of the performance. This is when the hypnotist show begins to wrap up and the hypnotist will bring the volunteers out the hypnosis trance, leaving them wide awake, refreshed and feeling better than ever.

So there you have it. These are the 5 processes that must happen to make a successful hypnotist comedy show.

If any of these 5 processes are skipped, ESPECIALLY the first process on the list, the hypnosis comedy show may not be quite as exciting and amazing as it should be and could quite possibly end with no-one being hypnotized.

BUT when these 5 processes are followed, the entertainment results can be absolutely mesmerizing and life-changing for all people attending your hypnotist comedy show event.
