Hypnotist Brian David Phillips deals with the invariable question of "Pants On, Pants Off" during a comedy hypnosis show at SPRING SCREAM, 4 April 2010 (Kenting, Taiwan). When running the "the bus is getting hotter and hotter" gag in a hypnosis show, I have to watch over the volunteers to make sure that folks don't lose their clothes as they try to keep cool and - as with any show in an open venue - I have to keep a watchful eye out for pranksters. If someone's response becomes unmanageable or if someone's fooling around, I usually eject 'em, although sometimes I will keep someone (albeit, if I believe they are screwing around I get them off my stage as fast as possible).
This clip is from a performance of the FUNNY HYPNOSIS COMEDY HYPNOSIS SHOW (a special event variant of my regular show for a festival crowd). While most of our shows in Taiwan are presented English with Chinese interpretation, this one was done completely in English to a rowdy crowd. We were scheduled to go on at midnight and due to the festival stage falling behind schedule, we didn't actually get to start our performance until about one-thirtyish and the crowd was a bit more than raucous what with some rather energetic performances and a bit more than a lot of Dinonysian beverages adding to the mix. For the shows I've done at Spring Scream, we invariably have to throw our regular rule books out the window and just jump in. Please note coarse language will be shouted above the din. Folks who say they need absolute quiet to perform hypnosis have obviously never attempted a show at an alternative rock festival, it's sink or swim time when you've got that much energy and that much sound all around you so we chose to dive in and swim full force and see where the tide took us. All in all, despite some hiccups, we had a wonderful time. See http://www.briandavidphillips.com information, mp3s, videos, photos, courses, and more.
