Marc Savard's show takes comedy to another level of excitement and fun through his ability to hypnotize perfect strangers and get them to do hilarious and unexpected things. Instead of him being the main attraction, his volunteers become the stars of the show, and there's no telling what ridiculous things he will have them do once they are hypnotized.
Before the show starts, Savard does a test of the subconscious to determine if you are in the right frame of mind to be hypnotized. The he explains a few guidelines for those thinking of volunteering, the most important being you must have a fun personality.
"If I can get 25 volunteers up here this is going to be one of your more memorable nights in Vegas," says Savard before people start making their way to one of the chairs set up on stage. Once the volunteers are in place, Savard guides them through several relaxation techniques until they are all slumped over in their chairs with their eyes closed.
Savard tells his volunteers that they will awake on his command and think that they are musicians who will play with "pride and pizzazz" in a world famous orchestra. Soon they have their eyes open and they are playing their instruments with absolute conviction.
He uses this not only to make the audience laugh but also as a way of determining which of his volunteers are actually hypnotized and ready for the rest of the show. Savard makes a final selection of eight volunteers and conducts another relaxation technique where they get into an even deeper state of hypnosis. One of the female volunteers, on the night the show was attended, was so relaxed that she actually fell right out of her seat and into a contorted position on the floor.
"I just saved you $100 from going to a Cirque du Soleil show," jokes Savard over the laughter from the audience.
From there, the show takes a wild turn as Savard creates a series of hilarious scenarios for his volunteers that they wholeheartedly embrace as though everything happening were real. Each premise is wilder than the next and the end result is non-stop laughs from the audience. The individual volunteers' unique reactions add to the hilarity of Savard's commands.
Apart from the scenarios, Savard also assigns the volunteers things that they will do when he shakes their hand or when they hear a certain song being played. The most hilarious command that he assigns is making one of the male volunteers think that they have jock itch. Savard shakes the guy's hand and pulls away just before the volunteer is about to unbutton his pants.
As the show gets going and the volunteers prove themselves to be ready and willing to do anything, Savard "steps it up a notch" by describing even more outrageous scenarios that involve everything from suggestively shaped lollipops to blow-up dolls. This is one wild and crazy night of hilarious entertainment that you will not want to miss.

"If you like to laugh and are looking for something to do in Vegas, this is money and time well spent." -Lewis
"I love Marc! I've seen the show a few times and he's great. I'm not going to spill the beans on what goes on. That would take away the greatness. Just grab a drink and enjoy the ride. This guy has a good voice, great charisma and humor. And when my friend on stage fell over in a hypnotic stupor, oh I was on the ground laughing so hard I cried. " -Danni
"This show was the highlight of our trip. I would see it again, again, and again!" -Laurie
"Not stop laughs. The price is great. The theatre is small so no matter where you sit, you will have no problem seeing. Marc Savard is incredible. Highly recommend this show. It's not corny and if your not a believer then I suggest you volunteer to be hypnotized... Have fun!" -Chuck
"This was probably the best evening. Great show. I didn't stop laughing at the people he "put under." Every time I go to Las Vegas I have to go see Marc's show. He is a great entertainer and very personable. You are able to meet him afterwards, which most entertainers don't do. Spend the night with Marc and you'll be happy you did." -Di
"I spend a lot of time in Vegas - and I have lost count of the number of times I have seen this show (at least 20). Quite simply its pant wet tingly hilarious! Marc is a very funny guy himself, and when combined with the hilarity that is happening on stage, it makes for a really really funny show! For those who think its 'fake'...its not ...hypnosis is very real. I have been hypnotized many times myself and so has my girlfriend, and I can assure you that everyone on that stage is a genuine volunteer!" -London
"This show was so funny I seriously cried. The host basically tells anyone that wants to get hypnotized to come up to the stage and then once he's done, he only keeps about 10 or 15 people...the ones that are the most hypnotized. He gets them to do crazy stuff... anything he tells them to do they do. It's hilarious and you can't miss this show!" -Jennifer
