I put several clips of my hypnosis shows
on both big and small stages so that you can see how this show will fit into any sized room on a big stage with a lot of volunteers in a big theater, banquet room, convention center etc or on a small stage in a small banquet room with a small number of volunteers.
SCIENTIST HYPNOTIZED... Though he was too intelligent...
There are also many other hypnosis videos down below and on other pages within this site. Something that you might find interesting is that at the hypnotized man in my show at :22 seconds who does not know his name is actually a very intelligent scientist who invents prosthetics and basically "bionic man" type limbs for people. You will see a short interview with him on this video too. He as a fascinating man. You will hear him say. "I thought I was far too intelligent for this to happen to me."
HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES HYPNOTIZED AT SOBER GRAD NIGHT PARTY
You will also see video clips of me hypnotizing high school seniors / graduates at their "graduation night party." Its quite common for them to hire a hypnotist for these sober grad night parties. I LOVE performing for them. The grads are FUN and I'm proud to be part of keeping them safe on grad night.
VIDEO CLIPS FROM MY SHOWS IN RENO NEVADA AND LAKE TAHOE.
There are also video clips here from when I had an ongoing hypnosis show in downtown Reno Nevada at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts and my other ongoing show that at was the Horizon Hotel in South Lake Tahoe.
You will also see testimonials from men and women of all ages who were in my hypnosis show from all over the United States. Because Reno and Tahoe are a big vacation destination for people from California we had many visitors from Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay Area and the San Jose, Santa Clara area.
A lot of artists, musicians and athletes attended
After many people from the silicon valley technology industry attended we got a large influx of engineers.
They find hypnosis funny and both scientifically interesting at the same time.
There are also testimonials from teachers, college students, coaches, doctors, teens and people from all walks of life.
SCHOOL TEACHER HYPNOTIZED
There is also a video clip from a nice lady who had previously attended my hypnosis show and did not believe that hypnosis was real. You will hear her discuss how she volunteered because she wanted to resist me and prove to herself that hypnosis was not real. Prior to our post show conversation in the lobby I had NO idea that this is why she volunteered to be in the show. However she could NOT resist me. She had not been hypnotized before and said, "I want to see if this is for real. And I found out it was REALLY REAL."
The video is edited but she told me that she was a school teacher. She also told me that she was also very creative as was her friend and they were both into art. She may have even be an art teacher but I'm not certain. I just remember that she educated elementary school children. I explained to them that creative people go into hypnosis very easily.
...She sure did!...
SOCCER COACH HYPNOTIZED AND SPOKE 3 LANGUAGES AND THEN TOLD ME HE SPOKE ONE!
A female soccer team from central California come to see my show in Reno while here for a soccer tournament. One of the volunteers was a coach. You will see in the video that I told him he was, "The Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger" I had him give a speech to the people of California in Spanish and in French. As you will hear he sounds quite fluent. The audience was in stitches. After the show I interviewed him and he did not remember anything that took place during the show. While in hypnosis some people remember everything. Others remember bits and pieces and others have complete amnesia. asked how many languages he spoke and he said ONE! Then I gave him a post hypnotic suggestion and told him he would remember everything that took place in he hypnosis show and I snapped my fingers. He instantly remembered everything and he was quite surprised. He had no idea why it was that he could speak Spanish and French.
There are other clips from my hypnosis shows down below showing a wide variety of people and routines.
If you are looking for a hypnotist. I hope I have given you enough information to make a decision to hire me to perform for your group. I perform for colleges, conventions, schools, parties of all kinds, resorts, and more.
There is a list of some of the clients and resorts and country clubs that I have performed for on different pages within this website.
The lady in the above video clip attended my hypnosis show with her mom on her birthday.
Both of them walked up on stage & got hypnotized in the show.
They were a lot of fun & they both told me that they enjoyed being hypnotized.Hypnotist Chris Cady also uses hypnosis to entertain at corporate entertainment events, conventions, company parties, grad nights, colleges and more.

Here's a lovely
Press article from the Reno Gazette Journal About Hypnotist Chris Cady
Local stage hypnotist brings out volunteers creative sides
This is an article originally appeared in the Reno Gazette Journal
By Siobhan McAndrew
Dominic Gentile acted out giving birth on stage in front of 200 laughing business associates. He also imitated Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Chinese dictator and President George Bush.
"I remember everything I did but was in a really relaxed, almost sleeping state," said Gentile of Reno, who agreed to be hypnotized on stage during a Builders Association of Northern Nevada dinner held at John Ascuaga's Nugget in Sparks.
He was one of 15 volunteers who were hypnotized by Chris Cady, a Reno stage hypnotist.
" I guess its something I wouldn't normally do (when) not under hypnosis, like the giving birth part but it was funny. I knew what I was doing but seemed more willing to do it." said Gentile, "but I can do a good Arnold accent under or not under."
Cady, who has hypnotized thousands, performs his family friendly show for high schools, colleges, conventions, business groups and private parties. He is one of two stage hypnotists performing in Northern Nevada.
Life of fascination
"When I was a kid, I read a book on it and it was intriguing." said Cady, who has been hypnotizing people for 10 years.
He said that after being in a mall that was hit by an airplane in Concord California in 1986 he went to a hypnotist to deal with the stress of helping with the rescue efforts.
"I realized it was something that still interested me," said Cady.
"Then I went to a show and saw a stage hypnotist do it and he just didn't have an entertaining personality. It was like he was doing a lecture, a long stuffy lecture."
Cady said he knew being a stage hypnotist and having an entertaining act would do well.
He went to a hypnotist school then worked with a hypno-therapist who had 25 years experience.
Finally , he developed an act. He performs his show several nights a week.
Cady usually can hypnotize a group in less then 10 minutes. He then taps on hypnotized participants and induces them to act out different personalities or characters raging from Elvis to aliens. Those who are not hypnotized, he excuses form the stage.
He will vary the show depending on the group. "Usually you can tie in something to the group you are performing for and make each performance original,"
Finding volunteers for the act is easy.
Cady said the best people for hypnotism are creative types who can block out distractions.
"When you are hypnotized, you are in a sleep-like state where you are just using the imagination side of your brain," he said, He said more analytical types such as engineers, are harder to hypnotize.
Cady also does private sessions to help people quit smoking, lose weight or improve sports performance.
Brooke Mills, who was also hypnotized at the builders association event was eager to try it out for fun.
"The things people told me I did were things I could never do in front of 100 people," said Brooke, who acted out being an alien while hypnotized,. She somehow even knew an alien language while hypnotized.
"I mean ( I can't believe I was) dancing and singing, I have stage fright," she said. " I get nervous about anything, but remembering back, it was like no one was there, I remember seeing everyone, but nothing mattered, I was so relaxed."

Here is another interesting hypnosis article about a hypnosis show that I had running in Reno for 2 years
Hypnotist zones in on Pioneer Underground
Show will be on indefinite run at theater
BY FORREST HARTMAN (note to reader: this article on my hypnosis show is here because its a good article. My hypnosis show played there for 2 years. However my show is no longer at this theater.
Less than two months after magicians Mark Kalin and Jinger Leigh left the Magic Underground theater, the venue is springing back to life with a new name and new headline act.
Now dubbed Pioneer Underground, the small theater at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts will reopen tonight with the first of many performances by hypnotist Chris Cady. The Spanish Springs-based performer is partnering with Jeff Leep, owner of Leep Entertainment, to provide regular programming at the theater, all of it anchored by his show, "Get Hypnotized!"
Currently, Cady plans to perform Fridays through Sundays each week, To get things started, he'll deliver eight shows through the (dates removed as event has passed), including three this weekend for the benefit of Toys for Tots.
Is he worried about attracting an audience night after night in the same venue? Not a bit.
"Every show is completely different," Cady said. "I have over 200 routines that I draw from, and in the show there's maybe 20 different routines done. It changes constantly based on who the audience is, who the volunteers are, their ages, what kind of vibe I'm getting from them. There's a lot of improv involved as well."
Cady said he starts his performances by explaining the basics of hypnosis. Then he takes volunteers from the audience and performs a mass hypnosis.
"We do a real hypnotic induction," he said. "There's nothing planned, there's nothing scripted. Sometimes people think that there are stooges involved, and that's not the case at all. It's completely real."
Cady said he doesn't have trouble getting volunteers once he eases the initial concerns of audience members.
"The number-one fears are revealing secrets, loss of control and fear of exiting," he said. "They're not going to lose control, I'm not going to ask them anything personal and they can't get stuck in hypnosis. That's impossible. Once they understand that and they see I've got a friendly face, I don't look spooky, they'll go, 'OK, I feel comfortable now.' Then people will come up."
Although Cady doesn't ask hypnotized subjects personal questions, he does ask them to do funny things that the audience can enjoy.
"Men will give birth," he said. "I'll make somebody Britney Spears. I'll make somebody Elvis. "" I'll make them sing a song about their favorite food. I make somebody the Governator, and they'll imitate Arnold Schwarzenegger."
Cady said volunteers not only star in the show, they enjoy the experience.
"They have a great time," he said. "Most people are not super-creative and they're not super-outgoing. Or, maybe they are but they just don't get a chance to get up on stage and perform "" Now is their opportunity to explore this creative side of their brain that's called the subconscious mind. And the feeling of hypnosis is profoundly relaxing."
Cady said he first tried hypnosis while struggling with terrible memories of a tragedy he witnessed. In 1985, when he was 17, he was working in a record store at Sun Valley Mall in Concord, Calif., and a small plane crashed into the building, killing seven people.
"I ended up with post-traumatic stress, and in order to get rid of my post-traumatic stress I ended up using hypnosis," he said. "I went to the library and I read about it. Then, I went to Tower Books and they had some hypnosis tapes. I bought them and things started working for me because I learned it was all about refocusing your mind."
After years of self-training, Cady decided to get more serious in 2000 when he went to school and was certified as a clinical hypnotherapist. He also trained with a private teacher.
When Cady isn't performing at (venue removed), the venue will be available to other organizations who want to rent it. And Cady and Leep plan on booking other performers into the venue on occasion. But that's later. First, they're trying to get the word out that "Get Hypnotized!" is going to be a regular feature.
"I'm very excited about it," Cady said. "We think we've got something very different."
About The Hypnosis Show

Channel 2 News
Hypnotist Chris Cady doesn't put people to sleep for a living. "Just allow yourself to drift on down...relaxing every nerve, muscle, every fiber in your body."
It's more like extreme relaxation, a state of heightened imagination. "When I snap my fingers you'll be playing the piano with great animation."
This musical interlude is just one example he can manipulate volunteers who've fallen into a trance at his family-friendly show called ‘Get Hypnotized' at (hypnosis show venue removed).
Some people walk into the theater believing hypnosis is fake and they leave unconvinced. "Other times at the end of the show they'll tell me out in the lobby, ‘I was completely skeptical but because my spouse went up there, now I know it's real because they would never do that.'"
Like Cheri Rich, who before hypnosis only recalled owning her own house cleaning business, but her professional changed with just a snap of Chris' fingers. "I'm Cheri Rich. Kristen Remington is on vacation...."
Chris got into hypnosis 20 years ago and is dedicated to helping the community in which he entertains. Most recently he started a campaign to feed our area's hungry children. "When I found that a third of the children in our area are hungry everyday I just thought, ‘I'm so blessed to have this theater. I can do something to help out.'"
So he's inviting you to ‘Get Hypnotized' later this month

NOW BOOKING HIGH SCHOOL GRAD NIGHT HYPNOSIS SHOWS AND HOLIDAY PARTIES
Skeptical? Here's How Hypnosis Works
Every time I perform a hypnosis show for a Silicon Valley Technology type company, they are always a ton of fun. I also get a lot of interesting questions that I don't get in other parts of the country. Its also really interesting for me to notice how the sales and marketing people have very different questions and comments than the Engineers. I love these questions and it always makes me think.... So
If you are a really smart and curious
Silicon Valley Engineer Type who has a compelling need to "figure it all out" or you are just interested in how hypnosis works, I wrote this next part just for you.
I'm going to take this very scientific topic of hypnosis and make it very easy for you to understand so that you can make a wise decision without being bored to death with medical mumbo jumbo.
Your brain is a giant computer and your body is like a robot. All your body does is follow the instructions given to it by the computer.
As a hypnotist I give your computer ( your brain) instructions and
Your computer (your brain) tells your robot (your body to do something and your body responds.
Your brain is divided into 2 parts. You've got your conscious mind and your sub conscious mind. Your conscious mind is the part that you are using right now as you are reading each of these words and thinking about these words and analyzing them. Then there's your subconscious mind. This is the more powerful part of your mind. This is the part that works like a giant hard drive of a computer and it stores information. It stores speech, music, sounds, thoughts, feelings, memories, pictures, experiences, words and Its also responsible for your imagination and your dreams. Its the part of your brain that makes you feel certain emotions when you hear music, see a picture or say certain words. Its the part of your brain that drives all of your creativity and your actions and in the case of a hypnosis show, its the part of your brain that you are using while hypnotized on stage.
Are you with me so far?
Through a special hypnotic relaxation process which I do very quickly on stage, I quickly bypass your conscious mind and tap into your subconscious mind.
Hypnotizing engineers, doctors and other scientist types can frequently take a little bit longer than everyone else because they naturally want to stay in their conscious mind and analyze this process instead of just "let it happen" however once they "let go" and let their subconscious mind take over the results are always incredible hypnosis.
This is because your subconscious mind
believes everything that I say as fact no matter how outlandish the hypnotic suggestion.
Its also the part of your brain that allows you to, “get wild and have fun on stage”
The subconscious mind is also that part of the mind that allows great performers, comedians, speakers or singers or musicians to improvise masterfully in a performance because their subconscious mind knows what notes to play automatically.
Your subconscious mind is also responsible for all of your bodily functions such as breathing and blinking, body motions and it also controls your thoughts and FEELINGS.
Your subconscious mind also access feelings of confidence or feelings of nervousness all depending on what kind of "program" is being run. This is why great stage performers, perform with such confidence, warmth and feeling. They are profoundly relaxed, confident and are performing “in the moment” from deep within their subconscious mind. Basically they are hypnotized.
The same thing happens during one of my hypnosis shows.
This is why after one of my hypnosis shows when I interview the volunteers they will describe their experience being hypnotized in the the same way that my professional entertainers do. The reason is that when a person is in hypnosis all of the suggestions that are given by the hypnotist are REAL in the mind of the hypnotized person.
This is one of the many reasons why a hypnotist show is so much darned fun at a party.
Hypnotist Promises Memorable Valentine’s Day Comedy Hypnosis Show
Edited from an article in the Best Bets Section of The Reno Gazette Journal February 2015
Men giving birth or strut their stuff on stage as dancers. Women suddenly rocking out on the guitar, swinging their arms like Pete Townshend of The Who.
Anything can happen at one of Chris Cady’s comedy hypnosis shows and that could be particularly true of the one scheduled at the JA Nugget. The performance is themed as adult – only.
Cady, who had a family friendly comedy hypnosis show for two years at the Pioneer Underground, stresses that this one is for ages 18 and older.
He also had a hypnosis show with a one year run at a South Lake Tahoe Casino.
“Valentine’s Day is a Day of Love,” he said, “Children are conceived on Valentine’s Day. We are going to get wild without being filthy.”
It’s hard to say what will happen at Cady’s show as he has about 200 different routines in his head to pull from. What ends up occurring depends in great part upon the volunteers.
During the show, many of the volunteers become deeply relaxed as Cady uses fast –trance hypnosis, which makes them amenable to humorous suggestions and interactions.
“The show is really improvised,” he said, I don’t really know what I’m going to do before I have my volunteers up there.”
The upside for those anxious about being on stage is that no one has to volunteer this is because there usually are plenty of creative types willing to participate.
In fact, creative people often are the best volunteers, simply because hypnosis utilizes the creative part of the brain, according to Cady.
After the show. Cady often talks with the volunteers and finds out what audience members thought of the show.
Even though I perform a lot of comedy hypnosis shows for all sorts of conventions and company and casino events in the Lake Tahoe Reno Sparks area I travel all over the United States performing for lots of wonderful people of all ages.
Also with Reno / Sparks Nevada ( this is where I live) being so close to Sacramento California the San Francisco Bay Area, Contra Costa and San Jose Santa Clara San Mateo County and Contra Costa County I am frequently hypnotizing people at many of the country clubs or parties that technology companies in the area like to hold for their team members
