So you’ve never been the type of person to believe in a hypnotist because you are convinced that every bit of it must be fake. Lets be rational, there’s no way that one person can so easily control your mind . . . but what if he could? Would you be willing to give it a chance? Hypnotist and comic Flip Orley invites everyone, both the believers and especially the non-believers, to come to his show and find out for themselves what the hype is all about. Rumor has it that he can make his volunteers think they’re stuck to a chair and that the audience left without them. Don’t worry, you won’t be locked in some private room and given a code word like “rubber chicken” that’ll make you rob the old lady next to you when you hear it. Instead you’ll be in a room filled with people who are eager to have a good time. Orley performs his act in comedy houses throughout the country with repeated success so it’s a show that’s guaranteed to be funny. Orley is adamant about not embarrassing his volunteers so he does everything to make sure the audience is laughing with you, not at you. You will be able to remember everything that happens in this creative and quirky show. So don’t let a little fear of the unknown scare you away . . . c’mon, what’s the worst thing that could possibly happen?
