The Dizzy's Comedy Hypnosis Show was a lot of fun. I went to watch the show and ended up, well, as one of the people on stage. Given I considered to volunteer at the last minute, I thought it to be a better way of fully appreciating the show. My hubby recorded the show so I could watch and absorb it later (funny and daffy moments and all) and I can also describe it and relate how it feels as one of the 'hypnotised' volunteers.
Dizzy later told me that I had a bit of resistance at first. I can vouch for resisting. A different time and place, and a consternated for-real hypnotist had once told me that there was too much resistance. It's the story of my 'unhypnotised' life, but I was at Dizzy's show to have some fun.
Dizzy's show was different. It was funny and unlike most traditional stage hypnosis shows, Dizzy wants his stage volunteers and his audience to have only positive experiences and that means, no humiliating take-aways from his shows. One can decide to immerse one's self in the show and to simply enjoy it without having to worry about being embarrassed or mortified afterwards.
Under Dizzy's spell and upon his suggestions, I napped on stage; used co-volunteers as human pillows; rode a non-existent bike; opened a coveted, chimerical Christmas present; laughed and giggled; and danced with 'Brad Pitt'. 'Mark Wahlberg, Megan Fox and Ben Kingsley' were all dancing with their partners too and they looked like they were having as much fun as I was. That's more than one too many celebrity in one place a person can come across at any one time; more so than on Hollywood Boulevard itself. There, don't tell me that I haven't divulged the Dizzy's Show's pièce de résistance.
The Wharf Tavern in Mooloolaba was a good venue for the show. If there were more volunteers, the stage would have been cramped, but there was plenty of room for an audience though. It was a shame that not many people turned up. On his Facebook page, Dizzy describes the show diplomatically as 'intimate'. I'm not sure whether because it was on a Sunday evening and people had to go to work the next day. The show started at seven thirty and finished an hour later. Local Sunny Coasters would have been in bed at nine or thereabouts, so people of and in the Sunny Coast, what was the go with that? Two other lady stage volunteers came from Brisbane for the show and drove back afterwards; they would have made it to bed much later than nine or thereabouts.
Dizzy was trained and mentored by world-renowned US- and UK-based hypnotists and is a professional stage hypnotist based in Brisbane. He has hypnotised people all over Australia. He proffers and provides his shows for events of all sizes. He is also happy to perform on-air demonstrations and is available for in-studio interviews. Born Dion Borg in Bundaberg Queensland, he trades under the name of 'Dizzy Magic'. He told me that although he prefers stage hypnosis shows, he also does magic shows. And there you have a couple of fantastic ideas for that upcoming birthday, party, Christmas, New Year or other celebratory event.
