An incredible comedy show that is fast and smooth.

Five Reasons Many Choose Stuart Ashing and Re-Book
SPEED-The Dreamweaver guides the volunteers into hypnosis and they begin do some jaw dropping things within 10 to 15 minutes of the show starting. If you have seen hypnosis shows in the past, other Hypnotists can take up to 40! yes! 40 minutes.
FUN AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION-The Dreamweaver has the audience participating from the moment he steps out on stage, they start clapping and cheering, generating the same energy as a Rock Concert combined with the audience participation and fun of a Pantomime.
UNIQUE MATERIAL-Complete scenes, from Star Trek, and the full story of Swan Lake in four minutes. Even old classic sketches like the School bus and the X-ray specs get a good twist.
A FULL SHOW-Events can have their bar open during the show, as no one can hear the bar for the noise of the crowd participating. Completely self contained with 2kwatt sound system, smoke & lighting effects where required.
WIDE RANGE OF SHOW AUDIENCES-Flexible to suit most events from Family audiences, and wild Student Fresher's nights, to Corporate evenings following a candlelight dinner with a good wine.
At the end of each show, audiences say they have seen Hypnotists in the UK and on the College circuit over the last few Years and are very professional. Yet they were impressed that Stuart Ashing does not have to sink to the depths of depravity as some do for shock value. The show is generally rated a "15" and can get more than "cheeky" in the right venue.
During the last few summers Stuart has been busy touring Spain for Airtours and Thompson's family holiday Hotels with a PG show rating. Recent vists abroad include Egypt.
Frequently Asked Questions -
What size of audience works for this type of show?
Usually for intimate corporate events, a minimum of around forty to fifty is a good number to create atmosphere. There is no upper limit providing the venue has good lines of sight to the stage, and adequate sound and lighting facilities.
WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
Hypnosis is a normal, natural state of mind. We are in this trance-state a numberof times every day. It is an altered state of awareness where the subconscious mind responds immediately to positive suggestion.
CAN ANYONE BE HYPNOTIZED?
Yes, as long as they want to be. A willing strong-minded person makes the best volunteer.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO BE HYPNOTIZED?
There is a profound relaxation and contentment, you are not asleep or unconscious. Similar to sunbathing, you can be aware of your surroundings but be immune to noises that would otherwise annoy you.
CAN A PERSON GET STUCK IN A HYPNOTIC TRANCE?
Absolutely not. As it is simply focussed relaxation, and from this state, naturally, people either nod off to sleep, or wake up refreshed.
CAN A PERSON BE MADE TO DO SOMETHING AGAINST THEIR WILL?
No! A person will never do anything against their moral ethics while in hypnosis. Stuart Ashing never embarrasses anyone on stage, or lets anyone embarrass themselves! He relies on mild quirky humor that is just as funny. Stuart Ashing treats his participants with respect.
IS HYPNOSIS DANGEROUS?
No. Hypnosis is perfectly safe when practiced by a professional practitioner. Stuart Ashing is a trained practitioner in Hypnosis NLP and Timeline Therapy®, and he has trained at Regents College London, and with master Hypnotist Ormond McGill.
A flexible fun entertainer that produces the goods, even under fire. Five minutes into his show the Helicopter fired up its engines directly behind the stage completely drowning out the show for a couple of minutes. The look on Stuarts face was a treat. Good family entertainment.
Respect and best wishes Samantha Bowes Event Organiser
After our executives had flown in from the International offices and completed an intensive two day conference, they were ready for some excellent entertainment, Stuart gave them the fun promised.
Richard Clare Chairman EC Harris
The Paris staff can really party on our few opportunities to have a night out. Stuart showed them all a good time and kept the venue a secret. As requested.
J.P Morgan Paris
From the "The Communication Group plc" team, we thank Stuart Ashing for a show we will never forget. After the Director made the annual awards, we were bedazzled by the energy and fun of a lovely man at play.
Lyndsey Wienand The Communication Group PLC
For a group of our engineers who are cynical at best about hypnosis and anything they cant measure with a laser. James Bond alias the project consultant and the others on stage with Stuart were oblivious to our ripples of laughter. Superb entertainment for our corporate evenings. Stuart has a fresh perspective on the presentation of Hypnosis.
Clare Sylvester Hotel Manager Hannover International Hotels
Of the 300 staff attending, from all departments and management levels, our initial apprehension was replaced by side splitting good clean fun for all.
We paid a few thousand last year for Paul McKenna and he doesn't compare to Stuart Ashing, as Stuart wins it on sheer energy and personality, balanced with a presentation suitable for all our staff
Reading the information you supplied on Stuart I thought it sounded a bit too good to be true, but it was spot on. Stuart entertained us for two consecutive evenings, to people who in some cases had attended both nights and I can safely say that we were in stitches every night
