Andre the Hilarious Hypnotist returns to The Boardwalk at the end of July to enthrall local fans with his fast witted humour and boggling tricks of the mind. Marking a record breaking 25 years on stage as South Africa’s very own convener of the strange weird and wonderful, Andre will perform five shows at The Boardwalk Amphitheatre from 25 to 29 July 2018.
Andre is renowned for presenting unforgettable, highly-interactive performances that leave his audiences flitting between fits of laughter and gasping in absolute amazement as ordinary volunteers drop deep into a hypnotic trance and lose all inhibitions with just a click of his fingers.
No two shows are ever the same as the shows strength lies in the fact that every night’s volunteers are completely different, leading to a diverse hilarious action-packed performance. With every person reacting differently to Andre’s suggestion, not even Andre knows what to expect when he steps up on stage.
“Well known for his incredible sense of humour, Andre the Hilarious Hypnotist combines his persuasive abilities to create hysterical pandemonium on stage. In his gentleman-like fashion Andre does not to drag people out of the audience or present suggestions that cater for a late night TV show. Instead his performances are clean, funny and family-friendly. His shows are for everyone, and even if you have seen him before, you are assured of seeing something entirely new every time,” says Nqobile Majozi from The Boardwalk.
Andre, who has presented his explosively funny hypnosis show at more than 4 500 live performances and hypnotized well over 30000 people, hurls the age-old art form of hypnosis kicking and screaming into the 21st century with supersonic hypnotic speed and outrageously funny sketches. Trained by the legendary Max Collie and having set attendance records at nearly all theatres in South Africa, Andre is yet to show signs of slowing down.
