There are many dangers Stage Hypnosis if not conducted in a safe and professional manner.
“That was brilliant” – Tove Lo (Swedish pop star)
“Amazing” – Bianca Gascoigne (Celebrity Big Brother)
“That was good!” – Mark Morrison (Singer – Return of the Mack)

“I’ve seen a lot of Hypnotists and he is one of the best” – Jodie Marsh (TV Personality)
Some important points for your consideration when choosing a Comedy Stage Hypnotist:
- With over 100 people in the UK claiming to be Stage Hypnotists, only a small percent are FULLY insured. Please note that standard Public Liability insurance doe’s not cover the volunteers while in ‘trance’, this has to be purchased separately at a high annual cost.
- Stage Hypnosis (and Hypnotherapy) is not Government regulated so please be careful with the entertainer you book. Stage Hypnosis is safe with a competent and experienced Hypnotist but in the wrong hands, problems may occur.
- So many Hypnotists claim to be ‘The Worlds Quickest’ amongst other bold claims of ‘1000’s hypnotised’ (when they have just ventured out with hypnotism and are ‘testing the water’). As much as everyone has to start somewhere, DONT LAND UP BEING SOMEONES GUINEA PIG. Kris went from a therapist to performing on stage so the transition was smooth as he knew he to induce hypnosis safely and how to deal with any issues that may arise.
- In short, in the wrong hands hypnosis CAN directly or indirectly cause harm. The main criteria in my opinion is experience. Like learning to drive, anyone can learn to hypnotise someone, its what you do and how you treat it is the main problem.
Having performed Comedy Stage Hypnosis since 2004, Kris combines comedy and safety with his shows. Over the years many have popped up on the scene having read a book or an internet course which just spells out trouble. Your guests, colleagues, friends…yes, we all want to laugh but not at someone’s LONG TERM expense. There are procedures within the show that you have to take in order for them to be happy after the show with no damage to the psyche. I have yet to see a course which covers this are in depth.
Kris also trains people in Stage Hypnosis…you are guaranteed ‘safety in mind’.
