Harold's interest in hypnosis
began at the age of six when his first grade teacher stated that
he must have been in a trance when she explained how to do math.
His interest remained dormant for forty years until he witnessed
a stage show at a local fair. The performer on stage produced
a trance in the show's volunteers and suggested they act like
first graders. Although he still can't perform the math calculations
he embarked on a five year study with America's top performers
to produce hypnotic entertainment.
Harold's performances are rated family appropriate! His clients
can be assured that the show theme and content will provide top
notch entertainment, and not embarrass their guests. Whether you
choose to join Harold on stage and experience a hypnotic trance
or watch the magic from the audience, it will be a night to remember.
