HYPNOTIST ANDRE (article first published : 2004-08-1)

Andre the Hilarious Hypnotist has returned with his all-new show to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre where he set a record ten years ago for the longest running one-man show in Durban, a record that still stands.

Every performance of Andre’s shows feature volunteers from the audience taking part in strange, weird and hilarious routines on stage. They find themselves doing anything from impersonating famous singers, taking part in the Jerry Springer Show or believing they are part of the game show The Weakest Link also included in the show this year are spoofs of the show 30 Seconds To Fame, Crossing Over and Survivors. Because the volunteers are so different no two shows are ever quite the same.

Andre’s ability to entertain does not stop there as he successfully combines his show with stand up comedy, video footage of hypnotised volunteers interacting with members of the public and hypnotised people impersonating famous South African performers. Although Andre does not do therapeutic hypnosis (unless laugher can be considered a treatment), he does demonstrate just how hypnosis can be used to improve study habits and to stop smokers from lighting up.

Andre will also be looking out for the funniest volunteers on stage to take part in his new television series, to be filmed in Johannesburg at the end of his Durban Season.

The Hilarious Hypnotist show opens at the Sneddon Theatre runs until August 15. Tickets from R28 to R32 and bookings through Computicket or purchased at the theatre on the night.
