NEW PHILADELPHIA - Prepare yourself for the unexpected when HYPROV: Improv Under Hypnosis comes to the Performing Arts Center at Kent State University - Tuscarawas on Saturday, January 18 with a special 8:30 p.m. performance time.

From the minds of improv and comedy legend Colin Mochrie and Master Hypnotist Asad Mecci comes a brand new, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping, side-splitting show. Hypnosis and Improv -- two art forms that have mystified and entertained fans, skeptics and everyone in between for decades worldwide – come together as two masters of their crafts unite for a totally unique comedy experience, HYPROV: Improv Under Hypnosis.

Here's how it works: Twenty random volunteers from the audience will be put under hypnosis by Master Hypnotist Asad Mecci, their inhibitions evaporated and their minds no longer their own. The contestants are methodically and hysterically whittled down until the five best are left on stage when one of the world’s leading improvisers enters! Co-Creator Colin Mochrie takes the stage to improvise with the top five while they are still under hypnosis, turning the show into an improv extravaganza!

In the hands of two masters, and solely crafted from the audience’s uninhibited subconscious, this will be an entirely original and completely unforgettable theatrical experience, for who knows where the unconscious mind will go…

Subject matter may be for mature audiences.
