FROM THE MINDS OF IMPROV AND COMEDY LEGEND COLIN MOCHRIE AND MASTER HYPNOTIST ASAD MECCI COMES A BRAND NEW, MIND-BLOWING, JAW-DROPPING, SIDE-SPLITTING SHOW. HYPNOTISM AND IMPROVISATION - TWO ART FORMS THAT HAVE MYSTIFIED AND ENTERTAINED FANS, SCEPTICS AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN FOR DECADES WORLDWIDE – COME TOGETHER THIS JULY AS TWO MASTERS OF THEIR CRAFTS UNITE FOR A TOTALLY UNIQUE EXPERIENCE; IMPROV UNDER HYPNOSIS.

TWENTY RANDOM VOLUNTEERS FROM THE AUDIENCE WILL BE PUT UNDER HYPNOSIS (THE PROCESS OF WHICH IS A SHOW IN ITS OWN RIGHT), THEIR INHIBITIONS EVAPORATED AND THEIR MINDS NO LONGER THEIR OWN. THE FIVE BEST ARE LEFT ON STAGE WHEN ONE OF THE WORLD’S LEADING IMPROVISERS ENTERS! FOR A LIMITED TIME DURING THE START OF THE RUN, COLIN MOCHRIE (CO-CREATOR) WILL INITIATE AND MANIPULATE THOSE UNDER HYPNOSIS HIMSELF AND TURN THE SHOW INTO AN IMPROV EXTRAVAGANZA!

IN THE HANDS OF TWO MASTERS, AND SOLELY CRAFTED FROM THE AUDIENCE’S UNINHIBITED SUBCONSCIOUS, THIS WILL BE AN ENTIRELY ORIGINAL AND COMPLETELY UNFORGETTABLE SHOW, FOR WHO KNOWS WHERE THE UNCONSCIOUS MIND WILL GO…

 

COLIN MOCHRIE

Scottish-born Mochrie is one of the most prolific improvisers on both sides of the pond today. He found his first line of work as a member of the Vancouver TheatreSports League where he met fellow improviser Ryan Stiles. He toured with The Second City comedy troupe until Stiles recommended he audition for a brand new British TV show, Whose Line Is It Anyway? After failing in his first attempt to get on the show, Mochrie spent eight years as a regular until it ended in 1998. He then joined the US version on ABC, appearing in every episode, and continues with the current revival on the CW Network, now in its fourth season. Mochrie has toured the world with fellow Whoser Brad Sherwood for the past 12 years (most recently to India), appears in the Second City Guide to Symphonies in front of orchestras all over North America and recently wrote his first collection of short stories, Not Quite the Classics, available on Amazon. In 2014, Mochrie was named Canada's Comedy Person of the Year. This summer, he is reunited with Sherwood and several of the British Whose Line cast for a twelve show run at The Palladium in London.

 

ASAD MECCI

Asad Mecci has been involved in the art and science of hypnosis and visualization for over 14 years, entertaining and thrilling spectators around the world with his amazing power of the mind. He has appeared on Entertainment Tonight, MTV, Maxim Online and HGTV. Mecca induces his subjects to 'see' themselves in suggested situations, often resulting in hilarious and unexpected events. His rapport with the audience is unmistakable, his connection with them undeniable, as he makes them feel a part of the show rather than just witnesses to it. Mecci says that a "balance of wit and intelligence" is key. "I want to show people that anything is possible... that they can accomplish any goal by using their minds and learning to focus. In this day and age, the concept of mind over matter and having a sense of humour have never been more important
