It pays better. It is a complete answer. You may not like it but it is what it is.

Stage hypnosis (not just any hypnosis) is one of the if not THE absolute most all-encompassing, universal forms of entertainment available. It's a man (or woman) and their talent, and a microphone in it's purest form. It is perfect and offers things most other forms of live entertainment do not. Comedy, audience participation, drama, suspense, intrigue, mystery, amazement, seeing the process happen live in real time right before your eyes, it makes everyday people from the audience the stars, it's real, organic, it's not a trick, gimmick or effect, it's laugh out loud hysterical funny, it's improv, it's not knowing what to expect, it's many different things going on at one time, it something not seen or not regularly seen by most audiences, it true live theater and an entertainment experience that can impact and move an entire audience individually and collectively, and leave a lasting impression.

The short answer is why not?

No other form of entertainment will have people saying during and immediately following the performance "that is the coolest sh*t I've ever seen!"

Why the childlike question? I took my nephew for a walk the other day in the park he asked me why is the grass green and the sky blue.

It intrigued me at first.

I studied it more and then...

It showed me the deepest darkest secrets of humankind and laid bare the truth of the world we live in.

It really did. Smile

So, I just love doing it now.

But, I do it my way though... Smile

Hypnosis, propless mentalism, and ventriloquism are the three things (in my view) that come closest to mimicing the powers a real magician would have. So I do all three. Not well, in the case of the ventriloquism!

Aside from that, I do them because people pay me to do them. That is probably the most honest answer. I do not like nine to five, so I do whatever it takes to avoid that.

It's quite strange but as I read the question I couldn't help thinking that it would be almost impossible now for me NOT to do hypnosis.
But to begin with, if I'm being honest, I saw it as POWER. Sad I know. Forgive me peer group wii ya Smile
