ANDRE THE HILARIOUS HYPNOTIST IS BACK! (article first published : 2003-08-25)

The extremely popular Andre the Hilarious Hypnotist is back in KZN with a new repertoire of hypnotic fun and comedy sketches. He will perform in Pietermaritzburg at the Hexagon Theatre from August 26 to 28 and in Durban at the Playhouse Drama from September 2 to 14.

“My show is a fast-moving outrageously funny production involving audience participation,” said Andre. From the minute this entertainer walks on stage, the audience is transported into a world of make-believe, where people vanish, chairs float, men give birth to babies, awesome roller coaster rides are taken, the craziest haircuts are cool, it is possible to be Superman, drunken drivers driving the wrong side of a traffic circle, the Oprah Winfrey show, a guy wearing a skirt and "John Edward" speaking to dead people.

What makes this year different is that Andre introduces a reality television aspect featuring video footage of hypnotised people interacting with members of the public. This footage willl also form part of his television series to be screened on Kyknet from December. Audience members will also be taken back in history as Andre presents video footage of his late mentor the legendary Max Collie.

While those who are brave enough to go on stage can experience the feeling of hypnosis and live his outlandish suggestions, the rest of the audience can enjoy Andre’s explosion of music, lights, make-believe and humour.

Tickets for the Durban run from Playhouse Dial A Seat on 031 3699 444 or Computicket on 011 340 8000 or 083 915 8000. Shows Tuesday to Saturday at 20h00 and Sunday at 18h00. Special students discounts on presentation of ID.

Pietermaritzburg audiences should book on 033 260 5537 or e-mail hexagon@nu.ac.za Tickets R32 (R27 students/scholars with ID).

In both cases, tickets are available at the door from an hour prior to the show.
