Comedy Hypnotist Does Anything but Put the Crowd to Sleep

By: Mark Moses

Over twenty years ago the county fair featured a special form of entertainment that is unique to the fair itself, a hypnotist was the featured entertainment. Spectators were amazed to watch as Comedy Hypnotist Alan Sands hypnotized dozens of people on the stage, and sometimes even those on the front rows of the packed bleachers.
This act quickly became the most popular entertainment at the fair. Many fairgoers came to the fair just to watch the hypnotist. Some enjoyed the hypnotist so much they planned their visit to the fair so they could watch all three shows on the day they visited, and then return to the fair several other nights during the week primarily to watch the hypnotist.
Hypnotist Alan Sands will return once again to the Robeson Regional Agricultural Fair again this year. Beginning on Monday night, October 1st, he will provide two shows each night and three shows on the last day of the fair, Saturday, October 6th. These shows will be featured on the McDonaldís Midway Stage.
Although he began performing comedy, magic, and hypnotism at fairs and carnivals during the 1980's Sands received his clinical hypnosis training in 1997 and became a Certified Stage Hypnotist in 1998. He has performed at 180 county, state and agricultural fairs, exhibitions and festivals; fifty colleges; a dozen casinos; multiple extended runs at amusement parks; about 500 company picnics; dozens of comedy clubs, theaters, conventions and two cruise ships worldwide; not to mention the 25 high school shows he does annually.
Alan Sand's national credits include over 300 Fortune 500 companies, 10 of the top 100 fairs and exhibitions in the USA and Canada, and casino credits including seven weeks at the Tropicana in Atlantic City, The El Dorado in Reno, and Bally's Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Universities across the continent have used Ads and corporate trade show clients include Sprint PCS and Motorola Wireless.
