Artist Overview

Richard Barker originated from the United Kingdom and has entertained thousands of people from all over the world including the Cayman Islands and  India. He was considered Europe’s #1 Hypnotist and is now one of the best in America.

Richards approach to stage hypnosis is fresh and unique, and he brings  many new angles to the fast paced intriguing show. Richard commands the stage but is very friendly and approachable. Richard said “It is not about embarrassing people or making them do things they do not want to do. My Hypnotized group enjoy the show and have as much fun as the audience. My aim is to ensure when you leave my show you will remember it for the rest of your life. You will be laughing so much it will induce tears, the show is so much fun and the best entertainment you will see for years. I do my very best to make sure each and every person is involved and walks away with a personal memory.

Stage hypnosis is a unique audience participation event everyone talks about for months, true exceptional entertainment watching hypnotized people. Stage hypnotist Richard Barker uses his extensive knowledge of hypnosis to entertain at corporate functions, school assemblies or after proms, colleges, fairs, and festivals. “I truly believe the people who volunteer to come on stage are my guests. They are the stars of the performance. I am merely the stage director, casting the right person for that part.” this philosophy brings a different atmosphere to how the performance is conducted.

Your group will be intrigued and amused by the wildly entertaining actions provided by their very own friends and family. Experience “CLOSE-UP STAGE HYPNOSIS” as the hypnotized people of the show move from the stage and venture out amongst the audience under the influence of Richard’s outrageous suggestions. This stage hypnotism show performance is an informative, mysterious, intriguing and hilarious presentation that is surely the most refreshingly different and unique hypnotic experience ever.  You’ll remember it for years, whether you participate or watch!

A Hypnosis Stage Show is an interactive show and best presented to any sized audience but generally, the larger the audience, the better the Hypnosis show will be.  It can be a “stand-alone” entertainment piece or combined with our Disc Jockey service so guests can dance to the DJ before or after the event.
Richard supplies all his own props and he also supplies his own sound system.

Immediately before the show, specific music is played to settle, yet excite the audience – and at show-time a pre-recorded fanfare announcement fills the venue.  Master Hypnotist Richard Barker appears on stage and gives an informative and entertaining presentation on what the audience has come to experience – HYPNOSIS!

After several interactive demonstrations of imagination and suggestion in harmony, Richard himself recognizes and chooses those volunteers who are most suitable to be hypnotized, to participate in the show.  Show length varies from one hour for a short show, to two hours for a full show,  Seeing is believing!
When the show is finally over and the participants have returned from their imaginative state to reality, they have had all the restorative benefits equivalent to a full night’s sleep and are feeling great!

All participants in Richards show can rest assured that they are in the competent hands of a professional – and that they will be taking part in safe, humorous routines where they’re treated with the utmost respect.  Being hypnotized on stage is a little like actively participating in a dream.  You retain the ability to either accept or reject Richard’s suggestions and most Hypnosis Stage Show participants will only accept suggestions that are non-invasive and within their physical, mental and moral capabilities.  You can never be made to do anything against your will. The show is good clean fun in which dignity and modesty of the participants is held in high priority.

All show participants will all be awakened from their hypnotic “sleep” at the show conclusion, feeling relaxed and refreshed, with fond memories of one of life’s most pleasurable experiences – HYPNOSIS!  As a valuable token of appreciation and thanks, all show participants are given suggestions of positivity, and pride on awakening.
