HYPROV: STARRING MASTER IMPROVISER COLIN MOCHRIE AND MASTER HYPNOTIST ASAD MECCI

Avon Theatre
Thursday, January 19
7:30 p.m.
RETURNING TO CANADA AFTER A LONG RUN IN NEW YORK CITY!

Hypnosis and Improvisation: two art forms that have mystified and entertained fans, skeptics and everyone in between for decades worldwide, come together as two masters of their crafts unite for a totally unique comedy experience, HYPROV: Improv Under Hypnosis.

How it works: twenty random volunteers from the audience will be put under hypnosis by Hypnotist Legend Asad Mecci (the process of which is a show in its own right), their inhibitions evaporated and their minds no longer their own. The contestants are methodically and hysterically whittled down until the five best are left on stage. Enter Colin Mochrie, one of the world’s leading improvisers, and comedy icon! Colin takes the stage to improvise with the top five while they are still under hypnosis, turning the show into an improv extravaganza!

In the hands of two legends, and solely crafted from the audience’s uninhibited subconscious, this will be an entirely original and completely unforgettable theatrical experience, for who knows where the unconscious mind will go…

“This art form is about acceptance...Our first thing as humans is to go, ‘No, I have a better idea.’ The beauty of hypnosis is: That’s gone. We now have pure improvisers.” – Colin Mochrie for New York Times

“Very funny…a celebration of the human imagination.” – THE TIMES OF LONDON

“Hilarious and fascinating” – TIME OUT NY

“Completely unique, completely unexpected, and really, really funny.” – A FAN, NYC
