Hyprov: Improv Under Hypnosis

Starring Improv Legend Colin Mochrie and Hypnotist Extraordinaire Asad Mecci

Friday November 10, Saturday November 11, Sunday November 12 - 7:30PM

Created by improv and comedy legend Colin Mochrie ("Whose Line Is It Anyway?"), and co-star World Renowned Hypnotist Asad Mecci, HYPROV has been called "hilarious and fascinating'' by Time Out New York and "catnip for those who relish spontaneity and informality" by The Wall Street Journal. The New Yorker says, "say yes to HYPROV!"

The 100-minute live show combines hypnosis and improv - two art forms that have mystified and entertained fans, skeptics, and everyone in between worldwide - for a totally unique comedy experience that The Times of London declared "a celebration of the human imagination."

Hyprov begins with an expert hypnotist welcoming 20 volunteers on stage to be hypnotized—a process that takes about 20 minutes. The most receptive “Hyprovisors” then join a world-class improviser and create an instant improv troupe and perform the rest of the show, while fully under hypnosis.

In the hands of two experts, and solely crafted from the Hyprovisors uninhibited, unconscious minds, each show is an entirely original and completely unforgettable theatrical experience. The show also has improvised music throughout.
