Gary Conrad, Comedy Hypnotist
Gary Conrad has quickly become one of the hottest and most skillful hypnotists working in this country. He has amazed audiences from Alaska to Florida with his hypnotism shows. He has become a regular at all of the "A" room comedy clubs and colleges across the country.
Gary was born and raised in Linden, New Jersey. After receiving his degree from Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, he worked as a stockbroker in New York City. He followed that with a very successful eleven-year stretch in the shipping business, working in both New York and Los Angeles.
Gary Conrad began his journey into hypnosis in 1980 in order to better condition himself during training for bodybuilding competition. He learned that through control of his mind, he could maximize his workout abilities. This ignited his passion for hypnotism that continues to this day. After several years of study, which included a stint in England, Gary began hypnotizing people in a clinical setting and eventually moved to the stage.
Gary Conrad has hypnotized thousands from Army Special Forces to bikers to New York policemen to schoolteachers. His shows are among the most popular that many comedy clubs host. Gary Conrad is unique in that he is one of the very few performers in the country to have the same people come back two and three times in one week to attend his show. Also, while traversing the country, he has become popular on radio and television programs in many different markets.
Since hitting the road, Gary Conrad has never looked back. If the adage of "practice makes perfect" holds true,he must be as close to perfect as any hypnotist in the country. Not content to simply work a few weeks on the road and then go home for a week, he works non-stop...year round, performing more than 400 shows per year.
Starting with a clinical practice in NYC's World Trade Center where he worked with stressed-out Wall Street types and business entrepreneurs, he eventually decided to focus on the entertainment aspect and has traveled the world doing so. As an Army officer, he was able to provide entertainment to troops overseas, particularly in Europe. Stateside, he has worked numerous military installations and colleges from Alaska Pacific University to The University of Miami. He has performed at comedy clubs in every state that has one and is excited about returning to Ann Arbor. If you visit garyconrad.com you can see him on "The View" or hear him on "Opie&Anthony." However, the best way to receive the total effect is to experience him live at the ANN ARBOR COMEDY SHOWCASE! This show is designed for YOU to employ talents you may not even be cognizant of possessing. Now is your time to step up and show 'em how it's done. Since Gary peppers the show with suggestions for weight control, academic excellence, and giving up tobacco, you may reap additional benefits from "rocking the house" other than crowd exaltation!
It’s a rare visit from one of the best in the business this week at the Comedy Showcase.
