Marc Savard's long-running Vegas show is an entertaining and energetic mix of hypnosis, comedy ... and chaos. This master hypnotist can compel volunteers to take a walk on their wild sides, including imagining they're invisible, irresistibly attractive and more, to the delight of cheering audiences. Self taught, Savard starred on stage as the world's youngest professional hypnotist by age 19 and was appearing in more than 200 stage shows internationally by age 21. At 23, his life hit a turning point when he was struck and nearly killed by a drunk driver. Using the powers of his mind instead of medication, Savard made an astoundingly quick and full recovery, and has since funneled his passion for life into teaching high school students about the dangers of drinking and driving, helping world-class athletes bring home gold medals, and bringing the house down in his hit Vegas hypnosis show.
The Experience of Being Hypnotized, According to Mark Savard
Hypnosis is a natural state of consciousness. Although many people are not aware, you pass through a state of hypnosis every night when you are falling asleep and every morning when you wake up. Hypnosis is often described as a deep state of relaxation and one of the best feelings someone will ever experience. One hour of hypnosis is the equivalent to eight hours of sleep.

*Is the show staged with actors? *
The volunteers that are on stage during the Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis show are just that – volunteers. They are real people, who have purchased tickets, want to experience the phenomenon of hypnosis and have taken the opportunity to volunteer to go up on stage. Some people enjoy the experience of being hypnotized so much; we have had people volunteer on a variety of occasions when they have attended the show. However, this is common because we have many customers that come back to see us at the Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis show every time they are in Las Vegas.
*Do I have to volunteer? *
At the Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis show, no one is forced to volunteer. However, if you would like to volunteer, about 5 minutes into the show, Marc will ask all audience members who are interested in volunteering to come up on stage. This will be your opportunity to volunteer if you choose to do so.
Can I be hypnotized? *
Hypnosis is a natural phenomenon. Everyone can be hypnotized. Some people are more susceptible to hypnosis than others. However, your ability to be hypnotized is sometimes dependent on external factors such as environment, self-consciousness, your desire to be hypnotized, whether you have been hypnotized before, etc. This does not mean you cannot be hypnotized, it simply means that you may not go into a deep state of hypnosis when you volunteer on stage.
