Before the discovery of swinging pocket watches, hypnotists induced a deep sleep in audiences by showing French films without subtitles or forcing patients to take notes on a five-hour family-vacation slideshow. Watch modern-day hypnotism at work with this GrouponLive deal.

Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis
Marc Savard, cofounder of the International Institute of Hypnosis, mystifies audiences of his stage show through a unique blend of comedy and hypnotism. Savard begins his 75-minute interactive performance by bringing volunteer audience members to the stage and using his combined powers of hypnosis, suggestion, and sad puppy-dog faces to seduce subjects into following his comedic whims. Funny bones get a full workout as Savard leads his subjects through a series of gags; past bits have included making audience members think their belts are live snakes, having them pose for an "adult" photo shoot, and even having them slow-dance with a mop. For those not brought on stage, the V Theater quenches thirst with a full bar and cocktail service, as well as an obliging team of ushers armed with Super Soakers.
