Peter Powers: Naughty Naughty Hypno Show

Price: $45.80
All Ages

Doors open: 7pm
Show starts: 8pm

Peter Powers is the world’s funniest hypnotist and one of the most successful hypnotists in the world today and it is not too surprising. His live stage show draws crowds much larger than any other hypnotist in every one of the countries he performs, making him ‘the biggest box-office hypnotist’. 

In 2015, Peter featured in a series of his own TV Shows that were aired later on prime time on the Channel 7 Network. Peter has been a regular and a favourite guest on the Channel 9 Footy show and will continue to make outrageous appearances on this program during this year.

Referred to as “a comedy genius”, “a hypnotist without equal” and “the best in the business”, Peter delights in the antics of his hapless volunteers almost as much as his audiences.

Peter’s upcoming live shows will have lots of new fun and outrageous routines where the audience can expect the unexpected. In fits of hysterical laughter, Peter seems to lose himself in each performance, pushing the boundaries of standard hypnotic fair and raising the bar with unique and truly whacky routines. All of this is delivered with a somewhat wayward humour in his distinctive, mischievous and impish style. 

Although the observer experiences a rollercoaster ride, on the very edge of what could be considered sane and proper, Peter manages to give us an ample glimpse of potential danger and mind-manipulation- gone-wrong whilst impossibly striking the balance of not taking hypnosis too far.

Beneath the well publicised image of ‘evil’ and ‘wicked’ he tries hard to portray, there is a warmth, playfulness and overwhelming sense of trustworthiness that belies it. If you’re out to have a great time, you won’t leave a Peter Powers’ show disappointed! Whilst his volunteers live out their wildest fantasies or experience their worst fears, the audience is thoroughly entertained as they indulge themselves in this bittersweet adventure!

Peter says ‘Australia is amongst my favourite places to perform. ‘Australian audiences have the perfect outrageous sense of humour, are very supportive and always show their appreciation for my shows’, ‘they push themselves to the edge…thus providing great entertainment like nothing else!’  ‘Also, possessing great sense of adventure means that there is never a shortage of volunteers to come up on the stage and give hypnosis a try’.

‘My first success with hypnosis was a complete fluke. I was messing around with an old pocket watch and trying to zap my younger brother. To my surprise, it worked! That was the start of an obsession that still lasts to this day’.

‘There were many obstacles during my fledging path to professional hypnosis. I was always getting into trouble with my school teachers and the parents of my friends were none too happy that I was practicing on them either’. ‘I did have my fair share of lollies and pocket money at the time’.

‘It has been more than two years since I did a proper tour of Sydney venues and I am so excited to be back. It just feels like I have come home’. ‘Although my sense of humour could be considered somewhat wayward, I do maintain an ethical sense of duty to my hypnotic subjects and make sure I bring thou out of hypnosis at the end of the show, returning all their normal faculties’.

As well as displaying his skillful stagecraft in venues around the world, Peter Powers has starred in and presented 60 of his own television shows in five different countries. These have been broadcast in more than 30 countries worldwide. He writes and creates unique formats for broadcast and devotes much time to his pursuit of knowledge and practice in the field of hypnosis for self-improvement, behavioral modification, extraordinary perception, altered states of consciousness and the control of chronic pain.

For just a short while, Peter Powers invites the participants to escape the drudgery and woes of the world to be treated to a wonderful state of bliss, fantasy and ultimate relaxation of both the body and mind while the audience enjoys a night of hilarious entertainment with jaw-aching laughter. 

Peter Powers – ‘a roller coast ride of an unforgettable journey of great fun and unbelievable adventure boarding on the ridiculous’…. catch Peter Powers as he converts even the most skeptic observer.
