He who laughs last laughs best, unless he doesn't finish laughing before the funeral starts. Empty your chuckle reservoirs in an appropriate setting with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two general admission tickets to Jon Dee's Hypnotized Comedy Show (up to a $49.90 value), which takes place at the Hypnotized Theater at the Space Needle in Gatlinburg.
Veteran entertainer and youth pastor Jon Dee serves audiences a proprietary blend of hypnosis, positivity, magic, and belly laughs. Members of the audience can become part of the show once falling under Dee's spell, in which they may be playfully encouraged to do '80s dances, cluck like a chicken, and write melancholy short fiction. One kid aged 9 or younger gets in free with each ticketed adult to the family-friendly event, which focuses on inspiring the audience with its nonmalicious use of hypnotism (additional children's tickets are $9.95 each). Shows start at 8 p.m. most Saturdays and occasionally on other days throughout the week. Check the schedule for upcoming dates.
TripAdvisors give Jon Dee's Hypnotized Comedy Show an average of 4.5 owl eyes and rank it the fourth most popular attraction in Gatlinburg:
- My wife was a huge skeptic of hypnotism before this show, and she left as a huge believer. Jon is funny, energetic, and family friendly, and we had an absolute blast. On the list of "must see" things in Gatlinburg, this show ranks right behind the park itself. – ratenxs
- It was such a hilarious show but at the same time it had a great message for everyone. – dogsaver20
