The Show

America’s funniest Hypnotist James Kellogg, Jr. helps audience members find their inner-Superstars in his delightful Comedy Hypnosis show. The sixty minute show is a fast-paced blend of comedy, music and audience antics. You will laugh hysterically as James takes audience volunteers on a guided tour through their imaginations with HILARIOUS results! This show takes entertainment to a whole new level!

Laughter, surprise, excitement, and thrills are just a few of the consequences when the science of hypnosis meets the art of theatre. Each show is unique when James turns audience members into celebrities right before your eyes! You will be amazed at the unbelievable hidden talent your spouse, friends or coworkers will demonstrate when under hypnosis. All of their inhibitions are gone and they have the time of their lives! These volunteers will experience a range of emotions and you can never tell what might happen when this lively entertainer takes the stage. His style is high energy, clean and refreshing without embarrassment or profanity. The audience volunteers are always respected because they are the stars of the show! When awaked, they will feel like they just came back from a long vacation or slept better than they can remember. They awaken refreshed and feeling great! Even the hardcore skeptics will walk away from this show believing the impossible and be thoroughly convinced.

Hypnosis is a VERY real thing and now you can see it for yourself! Stage hypnosis is the only form of entertainment where the volunteer audience members literally become the stars of the show. You will be talking about this show for days...while some of the surprised volunteers still have no idea what they did on stage! It is a superb performance filled with intrigue and laughter. It’s like getting a dozen entertainers for the price of one.

About Hypnosis

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation during which your subconscious mind is open to suggestions. A hypnotist will guide you through a sensory experience using visualization techniques to help you to relax your mind and allow yourself to let go. It is a normal state of mind that we experience everyday in different ways. For example, you may be listening to music and find yourself drifting off into a peaceful relaxation while driving your car and find yourself at your destination, not knowing how you got there. Your subconscious mind was on auto pilot keeping you relaxed and operating the vehicle while you enjoyed the music.

What Hypnosis is NOT

Hypnosis is not brain washing or mind control. You cannot be made to do anything outside of your own moral compass. It is nothing like how they depict it in books or in the movies. People who have been hypnotized do not lose control over their behavior. They typically remain aware of who they are and where they are and they usually remember what happened during hypnosis. They are just so relaxed they comply and receive the suggestions willingly.

Who can by hypnotized?

Anyone can be hypnotized if that is what they want. One of the requirements is that you are a willing participant and are not being forced into hypnosis. A hypnotist or hypnotherapist will not force anyone to do anything and will not allow others to pressure you into being hypnotized.

What about Surprise Parties?

This is NEVER a good idea with hypnosis. If you do not tell your guests that a hypnotist is performing, it undermines the core basic principles of hypnosis - anticipation and expectation! You want them to be pumped up and ready to volunteer or really anticipating seeing the show!

The concept is simple - without volunteers, there is no show. By telling your guests, you give them a chance to talk about it ahead of time and get more and more excited as the date gets closer. They will appreciate knowing that you planned such a fun show for them to experience.

The result if you do not tell them?

Instead of being excited and looking forward to this fun entertainment, your guests will feel inhibited and "put on the spot" to be involved in the show. It also makes the hypnotist's job 10 times harder if he/she has to rally people to the stage that really do not want to be there. This is a waste of your money and everyone's time and it makes the entertainer look unprofessional.

We will provide the marketing materials you need to make this easy for you. Simply post the information in a common area and/or email them to your guests. If you are sending out formal invitations in the mail, include the announcement.

Here are a few examples of what people are saying about the show

James was extremely professional and accommodating. I booked him for my wife's 30th birthday party. We had all age groups in attendance and James did an excellent job directing a show that was appropriate for all ages. His performance was wonderful and my guests had a great time. Thanks James.

-Ryan E, Birthday Party - Adults, Rancho Cucamonga, CA

James is a great hypnotist and tailored his show to our most conservative parent's wishes for grad nite. The audience was totally engaged with the performance and didn't want the show to end. Almost everyone who went on stage was able to be hypnotized along with a couple of kids in the audience. I'd hire James again in a minute for any event

-Carol M, Graduation Party, Fremont, CA

James was an amazing performer - professional, organized, friendly, and accommodating. We had a problem with our sound system, and he generously offered his equipment, and then worked with us to set everything up. We expected him to go on at 9 p.m., but the kids were ready to go 40 minutes earlier. James enthusiastically offered to fill in the time and go on earlier. He also provided a list of "topics" for the show and gave us examples of the language and "humor" used in the show so there were no surprises. We would absolutely recommend this performer for a school event because you will have a full understanding of the show contents before he even takes the stage.

-Lynette C, Graduation Party, Manhattan Beach, CA

James was very personable and professional. James had a TOUGH crowd full of Police detectives. Not many volunteered to go up. He worked hard to get them to relax and the few that went were fun to watch! He put on a Great show!

-Tammy W, Private Party, Rancho Cucamonga, CA

We loved the show, and would recommend him to anyone needing entertainment.

-Randi B, Club, Tustin, CA

The kids had a great time! Evan after the adrenalene let down of graduation an hour long bus drive food and entertainment for 2 hours before James performed he left them yelling for more! He did a great job and was very accomadating for our group. Job well done!

-Laura M, Graduation Party, Jefferson City, MO

James is extremely professional and very easy to deal with - he also has an office assistance who is very responsive to any questions that may come up.

-A. K, Fundraiser, Vista, CA

Mr. Kellogg was a pleasure to work with, he was professional and fun! He was great, and seemed to adapt well to the audience he was working with.

-Courtney P, Community Event, Fairbanks, AK

James performed at my husband’s 50th surprise birthday party and was absolutely wonderful. We had many more people come to the party than we were expecting which caused his performance area to shrink but he was very kind and accommodating about it. He just took a tiny area and made it into a wonderfully hilarious show. He was professional and patient and very easy to work with, as well as his assistant Theresa, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks again so much, James.

-Kim F, Birthday Party - Adults, Rancho Cucamonga, CA

James Kellogg performed for a our Mandalay Travel Club motorhome rally in Hemet,Ca on March 4,2008. It was the funniest evenings entertainment that we have ever had!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-James L, Club, Hemet, CA

Great! Thanks so much!

-Hailey H, Corporate Function, Salt Lake City, UT

James was a great performer, not only that he made the hiring process easy. The crowd loved him and we are definitely thinking about hiring him for future shows!

-Suki C, Community Event, La, CA

We had a great time! James provided us a very hilarious show. We didn't have as big as a crowd for the show that we had for dinner, but I can tell you he made it so worth staying and for those of us who stayed, well we had the best time of the evening - the show Janmes put on for us! I think we will be talking about this performance for years to come, even at our future company events!!!!!!!

-Rose F, Corporate Function, San Diego, CA

Great show and great guy- hope to use him again...

-Leslie W, Corporate Function, San Diego, CA

James' show was engaging, funny, and very entertaining for our audience, which ranged from young 22 year old engineers to our senior management. With a group as varied as this, his show was the perfect solution to capture everyone’s interest and provide entertainment that I’m still hearing discussed at our office! I would definitely recommend James' show for other corporate venues, and would be interested in having him provide entertainment for future events.

-Tracey C, Corporate Function, Carlsbad, CA

James was great. He was very entertaining and kept the audience laughing. I would highly recommend him.

-Krista M, Corporate Function, Pomona, CA

James Kellogg put on an AMAZING show for 2 dozen 17-18 year-olds in my home! He was incredibly accomodating and entertaining. The very jaded crowd of teenagers still hasn't stopped talking about the party. No alcohol to fuel their fun, and these teenagers were MESMERIZED! I'm hoping for an excuse to throw another party for this crowd, because I am the hero mom who gets all the kudos for throwing a great party, and I owe it all to James Kellogg, Jr!

-Mary G, Birthday Party - Adults, San Diego, CA

James was Great!! He was a wonderful touch to a great evening. Would be sure to use James talents again if we have the chance. He made our party the talk of the week.

-Kimberlee H, Corporate Function, Carlsbad, CA

My friends loved the whole show! They were talking about how they were going to go to school and tell everyone about. It really made my birthday.

-Darcy G, Birthday Party - Adults, San Diego, CA


-Monique N, Convention, Riverside, CA

James was very professional and put on a great show. He was very easy to talk to and was very friendly. I recommend James Kellogg, Jr. for your event.

-Ed W, Awards Night, San Bernardino, CA

I would definitely recommend. His office staff is professional and helpful pre-show. I hired for my daughter's Sweet 16 show. James Kellogg interacted so well with all ages from 10 to 76! I want to have another party so we can hire him all over again!

-Tammy D, Birthday Party - Adults, Corona, CA

He was absolutely fantastic and was a great performer for our sorority. His humor was just perfect for our age range and really got everyone laughing histerically. I would definately recommend him for any event. He was very flexible with our venue and the amount of people we had. Thanks

-Angela G, Sorority Function, Alta Loma, CA

James Kellogg was the highlight of our grad night event. Just when the graduates were getting restless, Mr. Kellogg showed up and put on a hysterical show. His show was tasteful as well as funny. He was on time, and was able to perform his show in a very limited space. And when our teens would heckle and get a little unruly, he handled them with grace and respect. We have already received requests from the kids to have him back next year, and some have requested his performance at their own parties. I highly recommend James Kellogg. We will be scheduling future dates with him!

-Tracy S, Graduation Party

I was very nervous in coordinating our Annual Awards and Motivation Seminar for my very first time for a group of 500. I was asked to look into finding a Hypnotist so I went on line and started my search. I called Mr. Kellogg and spoke with his secretary who was very polite and easy to work with. When I mentioned the company I work for, she said, "You know, we're performing at Knott's Berry Farm next week for your Marketing Group's Christmas Party." What are the chances?! I had no idea we had booked Mr. Kellogg for another division of our company. I had the privilege of seeing his stage performance before I booked him. I came back to work the next day and let my boss know that I thought it would be a good idea to book him. I didn't get a response from my boss until two weeks before the event and called back to speak with Mr. Kellogg's secretary and though it was short notice they were able to work with us. When Mr. Kellogg arrived, I was frantic trying to get everything worked out for the next part of the event and he immediately put me at ease. I sat directly behind my boss and his daughter during Mr. Kellogg's performance and they laughed the entire time. In fact, the entire Performing Arts Hall was in hysterics. I was nervous because my boss was very clear in what he wanted and what he didn't want and I knew he meant business. After the show I had several people asking for his phone number. Even the stage production company asked for his number. Needless to say I took a stack of his cards which I'll be sending out to all of our offices and the vendors we booked for the event. It was a huge success! I couldn't be happier. The feedback I've received from our 15 offices has been that this was the best seminar out of the 11 that we've had. Everyone really like him. Thank you so much for bringing him to us.

-Brandy B, Corporate Function,

James Kellogg is not only one of the most entertaining people an event planner could ever put on a stage, he is absolutely the most gracious, accommodating, low-maintenance and genuinely nice artist! Performing for over 2,000 Marines and their families, Mr. Kellogg adjusted his show so that he could use more guys on stage (from 15-32!) and managed to grab the attention of everyone away from Dunk Booths and Bounce Houses and all sorts of other distractions, with the most hilarious hypnosis show I've ever seen. He was, without a doubt, the highlight of our event and I would highly recommend him, as well as use him again at the next possible opportunity. I truly cannot think of enough wonderful things to say about him! The feedback from guests has been amazing! Bravo!!!
