The Lewis Dark Hypnosis Show is closed. We would like to thank the last twenty years' of clients, volunteers, sponsors and audience members for a wonderful experience. Please see some of our snapshots below. For stage hypnosis in northern Illinois and the surrounding area, we recommend Lee Darrow, or Wand Enterprises (see links below).

     "The show was fabulous. You did a great job! Staff really enjoyed being part of the show too. So far, the only questions we received were, 'Were you really hypnotized?' And of course, I say yes and tell them how it feels and that you don't have to be concerned of going into a trance and being lost forever. I think that is the major concern. Residents really enjoyed the show, and we had said a great turnout - you could tell that people were and are very interested in hypnosis."
     --Donna Brown, Activities Director, Friendship Village Retirement Community, Schaumburg IL
     "Thanks again for a great show, our attendance was down about 30 people from our average amount and those kids don't know what fun they missed!"

He entertained privately through friends and neighbors while developing the idea of entertaining the hypnotized subject as well as the audience. He turned professional in 1995.  Mr. Dark is a graduate of the Lee Darrow Stage Hypnosis Safety Program, as well as the HRH-Willis Stage Hypnosis Safety Certification Course.

The Lewis Dark Hypnosis Show has been performed at private and company parties, sweet-sixteens and anniversaries, pre-nuptials and post-proms, and many other kinds of corporate, municipal, and family events in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

He is a Certified Hypnotist affiliated with the National Guild of Hypnotists, and has given lectures at the Mid-America Hypnosis Conference, the Leidecker Institute, and the Association to Advance Ethical Hypnosis. In 2007 he was selected for the honor of performing his show to his fellow professional hypnotists at the annual Mid-America Hypnosis Conference.

The Lewis Dark Hypnosis Show started as an amateur proposition in 1991 and ran as a professional operation from 1995 to 2015. Mr. Dark has moved on to other pursuits, but is always happy to explain hypnosis to anyone who asks.
