Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents Hypnotist Jim Wand
Two shows at 7:30 and 10:00 PM
This is a special event. The last show will include Party Favors a Champagine Toast at Midnight.
Dr. Jim Wand has been involved in the area of hypnotic entertainment for 16 years. Prior to that, he operated a clinic that specialized in “Hypnotherapy” for 8 years. He is one of the only hypnotic entertainers in the world who has a doctorate in the area of psychology.
Each year he does over 150 programs throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe.
Every performance is custom designed to meet the specific needs of the client. Whether the program is for an employee recognition event, company picnic or holiday party, customer appreciation dinner, sales meeting, trade show, or other special event, the material will coincide with the theme, venue, and make-up of the audience.
The show can be totally entertaining or include personal and group motivation.
The length can vary from 45-90 minutes. Dr. Wand is always flexible to adapt to last minute changes in a schedule to better accommodate the needs of the client.
During each performance, Dr. Wand invites 20 volunteers from the audience to be hypnotized simultaneously and participate in tastefully done routines. The volunteers are never embarrassed and enjoy themselves immensely.
“I hope you like jokes” may seem an absurd way for a comedian to begin a show but those are the words that comedian Dwight York uses to introduce himself to his audience each night. Then the joke-slinging begins and never ends until York says “goodnight” a couple hundred perfect one-liners later.
Dwight York performs at many of the nation’s top comedy clubs and every summer headlines the Buffalo Chip Comedy Club at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He has appeared at the Great American Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a two-time finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Contest. In October of 2014, he placed 2nd at the Laughlin Laugh Fest.
York has also been a favorite guest on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and was featured on their CD, You Guys Rock. York’s CD Quickies (Stand Up! Records) can be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Raw Dog Comedy Channel and was rated a “top ten comedy release of the year” by The Serious Comedy Site. Laffspin Magazine says that Dwight York, as inventive as he is suggestive, is what Steven Wright would be if Wright had Robert Schimmel’s blue streak, and that’s a compliment to all three master comics.
Travis Howze is an internationally touring comedian and motivational speaker who spent 14 years in the military and emergency services as a U.S. Marine, Police Officer and Firefighter. Whether performing at corporate events and fundraisers to top comedy clubs, colleges and multiple tours overseas for our troops, Travis has become a comedic demand in multiple arena’s and always leaves his audiences craving more!
Known as the military and emergency services voice of comedy, the topics of Travis’ humor are limitless: from being raised in South Carolina to married life and fatherhood to his time in uniform and much more. Whether dodging bullets, chasing bad guys, or running into burning buildings, Travis is always FUNNY UNDER FIRE!
Brett Erickson is a comedian based in Los Angeles, CA. As host of one of L.A.'s most popular weekly shows, Punch at the Pikey, Brett tackles the week's news with a bold and brash, tell-it-like-it-is style. Combining a razor-sharp wit with a lovably acerbic tongue, Brett takes on topics most comics are too afraid to go near. If you like your comedy in the tradition of Stanhope and Hicks, you'll love Brett.
