Flip Orley at Palmer Opera House
March 8 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Flip Orley is single-handedly reshaping the image of hypnosis from something perceived to be of the vaudeville era into something palatable for the TV generation. His one-man show is setting attendance records from coast to coast as audiences catch on to his fresh combination of hypnotism and comedy. Orley has appeared on Comic Strip Live, and other variety shows. He’s acted in The Gambler with Kenny Rogers, and worked with Robin Williams, Jay Leno, and Kevin Meaney among others. But it is his uncanny way with subjects, his finely tuned power of suggestion and rapid fire delivery that keeps audiences coming back for more. Unlike past generations of hypnotists, Orley does not humiliate his subjects for comic effect, but entertains by enlightening his audience. “I want the audience to laugh with them, not at them”, he says. “This is the purest form of improvisational entertainment you will ever see as the show rewrite itself every night, and the volunteers are my partners, not my victims.” Buy Tickets Here
