Monday, October 24th @ 7 PM
Rich Guzzi will be making an appearance in the SUB Ballrooms on Monday, October 24th at 7:00 pm. Admission is Free and open to the public. With recent appearances on Access Hollywood and in Parade Magazine, how does Comic Hypnotist Rich Guzzi plan to keep the momentum going? How about a nation wide 300 show comedy tour to prepare for the one hour special he is developing!
Rich Guzzi is a comedian that does hypnosis, not a hypnotist that does comedy; that is what ultimately sets his show apart from others. At any given time, Rich can take an already hilarious situation happening on stage and turn it into an unforgettable moment. Hypnotizing a group of audience members and being able to have them act outrageously is one thing, but making the scenarios create a storyline that produces outright hysteria is another, all created with new audience members every night making each show a unique experience.
Born in Brooklyn NY, Rich grew up in a neighborhood full of funny characters. To stand out in the crowd you had to really be over the top. Guzzi credits this upbringing with his motivation to never settle for just being funny enough. It has to be so good that you want people to go home and tell everybody “You’re not going to believe what I saw last night”
Every night Rich performs a high wire act. Bringing audience volunteers to the stage and then hypnotizing them right before your eyes. He doesn’t even dim the lights because he wants everybody in attendance to see the induction process. Once hypnotized, he then puts them into some of the most outrageously funny scenarios you could possibly imagine, obviously to the delight of the friends left in the crowd watching in disbelief.
Interestingly enough though, believing is exactly what Rich wants to accomplish with his show every night. You see, its not enough for Guzzi to just make you laugh really hard. He wants to have every person leave that showroom knowing that Hypnosis is real. Not some spooky witch doctor trick. By showing the true benefits, he can hopefully take the stigma away, give it wide spread acceptance and bring it to the masses.
“Hypnosis should be cool, not scary”, says Rich.
Always grateful for what he has, Rich likes to give back with his charity of choice being animal shelters, doing benefit shows across the country. He lives in Nashville, Tennessee where his neighbors still think he is in the witness protection program.
