A jaw-dropping combo of hypnotism and improvJust For Laughs Festival is a celebration of the best live music, theatre, comedy and family programs from around the world and here at home. Hosted in London, we have the perfect city for such a broad range of art to be both appreciated and enjoyed. Get ready for laughs, tears and a lot of incredible works from every genre imaginable.
From the minds of improv and comedy legend Colin Mochrie (Whose Line Is It Anyway?) and master hypnotist Asad Mecci comes a brand new, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping, side-splitting show. Hypnotism and improvisation – two art forms that have mystified and entertained fans, sceptics and everything in between for decades worldwide – come together this July as two masters of their crafts unite for a totally unique experience: improv under hypnosis.
Twenty random volunteers from the audience will be put under hypnosis (the process of which is a show in its own right), their inhibitions evaporated and their minds no longer their own. The five best are left on stage when one of the world’s leading improvisers enters. For a limited time during the start of the run, Colin Mochrie will initiate and manipulate those under hypnosis himself and turn the show into an improv extravaganza.
In the hands of two masters, and solely crafted from the audience’s uninhibited subconscious, this will be an entirely original and completely unforgettable show, for who knows where the unconscious mind will go…
