Comedic hypnotist back at The Drama Factory

On stage later this month, Andre The Hilarious Hypnotist, is a show filled with feel-good, funny, hilarious entertainment with audience members, by their participation, often turned into the stars of the show.

The Drama Factory in Strand has after his performances last year, invited back Andre The Hilarious Hypnotist to entertain audiences in 2024.

Often confused as a mentalist and magician, Andre The Hilarious Hypnotist is in fact an award-winning comedian and stage hypnotist who has the audience eating out of the palm of his hands from the beginning of his show to the very end.

This performer celebrates a record breaking 31 years on stage as South Africa’s very own convener of the strange weird and wonderful.

Andre discovered his hypnotic calling after watching a performance of the late Max Collie in action.

No two shows are ever the same as the show’s strength lies in the fact that every night’s volunteers are completely different, leading to a diverse hilarious action-packed evening performance. With every person reacting differently to Andre’s suggestion, not even Andre knows what to expect when he steps up on stage.

Having already studied drama, teaching and with a background in psychology, Andre immediately became hooked at the promise of being able to entertain people on stage with his hypnotic skills and that is exactly what he has been doing for the past 25 years.

Andre does, however, promise not to disappoint and the audience can expect an hour of side splitting hilarious hypnotic entertainment from their very own community as Andre takes to the stage.

Shows are at 7.30pm on Wednesday February 28 and on Thursday February 29. Tickets cost R170.

All shows can be booked online at or contact 073 215 2290 to book and for more information.
