Comedy Hypnotist David Hall Visits VU for Homecoming Week

Hypnosis is described as a trance-like mental state that is highly suggestive and susceptible to surroundings. 

Comedy hypnotist David Hall performed his show “Cards Against Hypnosis” at Vincennes University on Nov. 3 for homecoming week to entertain and amuse students with the fascinating, comical side of hypnosis. 

By the end of the night, he had people dancing, laughing, and cheering for his show and talent. Many of the  hypnotic participants say they barely remember anything when they were on stage.

Hall puts the volunteered students in a hypnotic state.


Hall reads off cards with scenarios and then lets the audience interact with the hypnotic students by choosing what the hypnotic students perform next.


Participants were put into a hypnotic state that made them laugh harder every time Hall put them into a deeper hypnotic state.


VU student Tate Hall was put in a hypnotic state to see a member of the audience as his favorite celebrity.
