"A Great Little Show That I Highly Recommend."

Jack Neal, KUNR Radio and www.Nevada-events.net

"One of the best evenings for the family and  one of the best hypnotist shows Northern Nevada has seen......It's a fun space and Cady is having fun in it... When the volunteers are hypnotized, Cady treats them with respect and humor. They play air guitar and air piano, conduct an imaginary symphony orchestra, become James Bond, become Martians and their translators, and perform Irish step dancing, but they never are put into any suggestive situations."

Night Club Reviews

Mar 1, 2009 - "Get Hypnotized" with comedian-hypnotist Chris Cady is a great little show at Reno's Pioneer Center Underground

By Jack Neal KUNR AND  www.Nevada-events.net

At one time Pat Collins, the Hip Hypnotist, called Reno home. Collins remains the biggest name in nightclub hypnotist show business. After her death in the late 90s glazed-eye nightclub acts just haven't existed in Northern Nevada.

Now that has changed. Comedian-hypnotist Chris Cady is performing weekends at Reno's Pioneer Center Underground. In the right hands and under the right spell, on-stage hypnosis can be great fun. And so it was Saturday night (2/21/09), when I saw Cady's show.

There's nothing to fear about Cady's brand of humor, nor his way of entertaining folks by featuring as stars those under his transfixing demeanor. He does nothing in the least bit off color or embarrassing. As produced by Jeff Leep, who also operates the lights and sound for this shoestring production, Cady's droll approach to that old-black-hypnotic magic keeps an audience very neatly under his spell.

To his credit and the entertainment value of "Get Hypnotized," the thinning of audience volunteers - the painfully slow part of most of these kinds of acts - is done quickly, is lightly tongue-in-cheek and clicks along without interrupting the show's rhythm.

Since "Get Hypnotized" depends on who's in the audience for its humor, every show is different. Repeat business boils down to long runs and that's what Cady and Leep are hoping for. And that's what this nicely-packaged show deserves.

The Pioneer Center Underground, formerly the Magic Underground, is a beautifully designed and inviting space that's perfect for the mysterious art and science of hypnosis.

But ultimately it's the easy charm of Chris Cady, his good manners and ethics, and his upbeat humor that makes "Get Hypnotized" a nightclub act suitable for families and just about anybody who wants a slightly-more-than-one-hour of good, clean amusement. "Get Hypnotized" is a solid new addition for Reno's nightclub scene. It's a great little show for the World's Biggest Little City that's a pleasure to recommend.

THIS ARTICLE  and SHOW REVIEW IS FROM THE SACRAMENTO BEE  MARCH 22, 2009
By Mel Shields

Volunteers sleep through this show


Sunday, Mar. 22, 2009 -

Just as hypnotism has gained more respect in the field of psychotherapy, so it has in entertainment. Long gone are the hokey artists in flowing robes who swing medallions as they repeat, "You are getting sleepier and sleepier." They've been replaced by "professional hypnotists" who tend to wear business suits and pepper their presentations with humor.

Today's hypnotists are more honest about what they can and cannot do. This makes audience members feel more at ease volunteering to be hypnotized.

Hypnotism shows tend to attract a dedicated following, and that is the hope of Chris Cady, who has taken over Reno's Magic Underground as founder Mark Kalin has moved on. The space on Virginia Street, or rather under Virginia Street, is part of the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts, and its entrance is on the Pioneer's plaza. It is an intimate setting with tiered seating, the seats rescued from a movie theater.

It's a fun space and Cady is having fun in it. He calls it "perfect, and that's not because of its darkness. I could do hypnotism in broad daylight. The stage is the right size. I've done shows in comedy clubs and the stages are built for one or two comedians. There's not enough room for the volunteers. And I can see the audience. That is essential because around one to three people fall into hypnosis during the show and I can see if they've fallen asleep in their chairs."

There are, of course, other reasons audience members fall asleep during shows, but boredom is not likely in a Cady evening. He doesn't take an inordinate amount of time explaining his background or what happens under hypnosis. A certain amount of the latter is necessary, but he is brisk with it and involves everybody, having the audience perform a few feats with their hands and arms, putting them into a relaxed and receptive state.

When the volunteers are hypnotized, Cady treats them with respect and humor. They play air guitar and air piano, conduct an imaginary symphony orchestra, become James Bond, become Martians and their translators, and perform Irish step dancing, but they never are put into any suggestive situations.

"I want to avoid any of 'Oh, God, why did you make me do that?' I want it to be 'Oh, that was a good time.' A lot of shows embarrass people sexually and I will not do that."

Cady is a certified clinical hypnotherapist with a practice in Reno. He has 53 hypnosis CDs, works with athletes, business people and others on overcoming fear, and helps with smoking cessation, weight loss, and other problems. Now is a time when his services are more needed; now is also a time when new entertainment ventures are big risks.

"Why did I go into this in this horrible, scary economy? I like a good challenge. I spent the past several years flying all over the place. It seemed the work was always somewhere else. Then it dawned on me that I live in a place where people come for entertainment, the magicians have moved out, and despite the fact the economy has issues, we have a chance."

Cady was fascinated by a book on hypnosis when he was a child but it was far beyond him. Then when he was in high school and working in a record store in Sun Valley Mall in Concord, a plane crashed through the building. He suffered from post-traumatic stress and nothing took the nightmares away.

"I heard hypnosis could help, so I went to Tower Books and got the self- hypnosis tapes and subliminal suggestion tapes. I listened and practiced and stopped being uncomfortable. I didn't think this would turn into a career, but then I saw a stage hypnotist perform and saw amazing things happen. This man, however, was not a performer but more like a guy giving a lecture and I thought I could do better, so I underwent training and built a career."

If you volunteer at a Cady show, you are given the opportunity afterward for a free "empowering suggestion," which Cady calls a part he loves, a chance to "give myself a great reward by helping people become less stressed, quit smoking, even become a better bowler."




OF NOTE: Typical of Cady's humor is this note in his program for those who are afraid of getting hypnotized while watching: "Relax, he can't hypnotize you against your will. But if you are really worried, ask your waiter for a sheet of aluminum foil. Wrap it around your head so that it blocks out the hypnotic signals. It will also keep space aliens, the CIA and the KGB from reading your thoughts. Also be sure to chant 'I will not get hypnotized' while wiggling your hands next to your ears. We don't guarantee it will work. But we do guarantee that the people around you will find it amusing, and it's a great way to get yourself on YouTube."

Here is a partial review snipped from an online article which we find funny.


A more experienced example of comedy in Reno is Chris Cady, a Comedian as well as hypnotist. Cady has a show in Reno  called “Chris Cady’s Get Hypnotized Comedy Hypnosis Show.”


Brien Obrien, a 20-year-old sophomore at UNR, only goes to comedy shows when entrance is free.

“I have never been to his show,” said Obrien, “but I think hypnosis and comedy together should make for a really good night.”

Tickets for Cady’s show  range from $20-$25. The show is all ages and involves a lot of participation from the audience.

Natalie Gay, a 28-year-old UNR graduate, has been to Cady’s show and enjoyed it.

“I didn’t get hypnotized but it was really funny to watch people to all these crazy things.” Said Gay. “I also thought that Chris Cady was very entertaining and funny, unlike his cheesy commercials.”
