Ok ok ok...... I've (Matt) always been a skeptic..... Always!!!! Not anymore. Sherry and I are in Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg for her Bday and decided to try some things we had not done before. We found Guy Michaels Comedy Hypnosis while searching TA.. We went to the show last night 10/26/2013.
Let me get the only negative out of the way first. Location location location. When I do reviews I don't like to sugar coat things. I want folks to make a decision based on goods and not so goods. To get to Guys theater, you have to enter through the game room at the Space Needle. This could turn some folks around at the door.
Unfortunately for them, if they did turn around, they would miss one Hell of a show!!!!
We took front row seats and as people began to die in. Guy came in and spoke with guest and got a feel for the room. He asked different questions to help Gage participation. The show is completely dependant on people volunteering to participate on stage.
Sherry and I told him we were there to enjoy watching others and were not interested in volunteering.......... Boy did we eat our words and are glad we did.
Sherry twitched in her seat and I could tell she was interested in participating, so I proded her a little and up on stage she went. This is a family friendly show, so don't read anything off color into what I say............ My beautiful, somewhat reserved wife was a blast. She did things that I knew very well she would not have done anywhere else, much less on that stage in front of all those strangers.
During the show she was singled out and Guy suggested that she no longer knew her name and from that point on and as far back as she knew, her name was now....... E I E I O....... that's right, just like old McDonald. He suggested to her that she would not remember her real name until her head hit the pillow that night. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! !! It worked and it was hilarious. After the show, I messed with her to no end and I can with100 percent honesty say, I tried to stump her. I even showed her her drivers licence and she thought it must be her sister, because that was not her name. I videod her answering to her new name and absolutely not responding to her real name. I showed her the DVD that I purchased from the show and just before it got to the part where she got her knew name, I told her to lay back on the couch with her head on the pillow......... on our children's eyes, this is the truth...... as her head hit the pillow I said " I love you Eieio" and she looked at me with this very puzzled look and said "What"??? I asked what her name was and she sarcastically.... " I'm tired and you know my name, quit playing around". I asked again and she huffed and said Sherry. WOW!!!!!!
This was the best $49 we have spent on entertainment ever! Great show. Go see for yourself and please let someone in your group get involved. It's truly the only way to know for sure that it wasn't fake!
I'm still a skeptic about a lot of things, but not on the power of suggestion through hypnotism. Great job Guy........ I'll send you one of her recall videos to your Facebook when we get home.
