Get Hypnotized!

Academy Theatre Presents Comedy Hypnotist Erick Kand

The Academy Theatre will be jumping with fun, laughter, and definite foolishness as Master Hypnotist Erick Känd excites the audience with his hilarious Comedy Hypnosis show on November 16 at 7:30pm at 275 Chestnut Street in Meadville.  Doors open at 6:30pm with a cash bar and concessions.  Tickets are $14.50 and can be purchased at or by calling 814-337-8000.

During the show, self-selecting volunteers will undergo a complete transformation. The pandemonium is all great fun and will have the audience laughing non-stop from start to finish during this special appearance.

What specifically happens all depends on Stage Hypnotist Erick Känd.  He explains, “I’m excited for this opportunity to present the Comedy Hypnosis Show for Meadville. During the show we will have fun and lots of laughs. It will be very exciting because the show will involve a number of audience members. In fact, individuals who volunteer for hypnosis are the ones who will have the most fun.”

“The Hypnosis Show is very unique entertainment and has been called one of the greatest shows on earth. It combines the fun of total audience participation with the incredible abilities of the mind. You will laugh and applaud for your friends up on stage as you have never seen them before. For instance, the quietest introvert will often times become the brightest star.”

Erick is a full time Professional Hypnotist. Before relocating to Florida, he owned and operated the San Diego Hypnosis Center. He has helped clients with a broad base of issues such as smoking cessation, weight loss, phobia elimination, and relationship issues. He is happy to help anyone interested in Hypnotherapy to find a qualified hypnotist in their area.

Of course, for this performance, Erick will be presenting Hypnosis strictly for fun and entertainment. “Hypnotizing individuals is a process that begins with the volunteer’s approval,” he explained. “Nobody can be hypnotized against their will.”

We asked Erick, “Can anyone be hypnotized?” He replied, “Every person that has the desire can be hypnotized. It’s worth mentioning that nobody is ever forced to participate on stage. The traditional hypnotic show in the past was humor at the expense of the audience members, but during my show I make the audience members the stars. We highlight and accentuate the talents and creativity of our volunteers. We do nothing to embarrass them…I know that may disappoint a few individuals! We’re going to have some laughs from beginning to end, but no one is going to do anything that they’ll regret.”

“After the show is over, people often say they wish they had volunteered to come up on stage. They see how much fun it is and realize that I’m not going to ask them to cluck like a chicken or anything like that. It’s good clean fun!”

In conclusion, Erick stated, “I look forward to seeing everyone at the show, and YES, it is for real. If you have any doubts, volunteer to join us up on stage!”

You will have an unforgettable experience and people will be saying, “I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it for myself!”  Erick Känd is a mesmerizing performer who has audiences laughing out loud and applauding wildly!
