Journey to the Center of the Mind
in his new show displays the incredible
hypnotic powers of the mind in ways often
hilarious... sometimes spine-chilling...
but always fascinating.
At the beginning Mark Lewis
warms up the audience with a few card
tricks and some suggestibility tests.
This is used to select the best subjects.
Volunteers are then invited on stage.
The show consists of volunteers
being hypnotized on stage and participating
in various comedy situations. For example,
you may witness someone speaking fluent
Martian, get stuck to their chairs, fall
in love with a broomstick or run from
a friend they believe is a monster! This
is just a small sample of what can happen.
is suitable for a family audience. Absolutely
no vulgarity or obscenities
The Volunteers are treated
with the utmost respect and although they
have fun on stage they are not made to
look too ridiculous.
Length of Show
The show can run anywhere
from 1– 3 hours depending on the
venue and the circumstances. For most
venues the performance lasts 75-90 minutes.
A good show can be put on in an hour but
less performing time than this is not
Size of Audience
Hypnotists love large audiences!
This is because the larger the audience
the more chance there is of finding good
subjects. Many stage hypnotists require
an audience of at least 150 people. Having
said this, Mark is one of the few hypnotists
who is quite happy to work for small audiences,
even as low as 40 people. This is because
he has developed unique hypnotic induction
methods especially suited for small audiences.
Welfare of the Participants
The psychological and physical
welfare of his volunteers is paramount.
Certain types of individuals
(epileptics, heart patients, expectant
mothers, and psychiatric patients) are
discouraged from volunteering. The subjects
are restrained if they get too excited
and dangerous stunts are not used.

Letter of Recommendation:
September 7, 2005
To Whom it May Concern,
I would like to take this opportunity
to thank Mr. Mark Lewis for his
performance at our orientation celebrations.
This is the second year we have
had Mr. Lewis to our event and he
again gave us a wonderful show that
entertained all of our incoming
students, volunteers and executives.
Mr. Lewis' powers of Hypnotism are
truly astounding and the fact that
he was able to effect both the members
of the audiences as well as the
volunteers on stage still amazes
me. I heard many favourable comments
about how fun the show was among
the incoming students and even among
our leaders who have seen the show
twice! I understand that there was
great anticipation of the show beforehand,
and they certainly weren't disappointed.
In all, I would recommend Mr. Lewis'
show to any college or group that
was looking for an exciting show
to entertain and get an audience
into the swing of things. We all
enjoyed the show and would gladly
have him back to entertain the next
year of incoming students.
