Audiences should prepare to be mesmerized — literally — when hypnotist and mentalist Rich Aimes brings his riotous “Hypnopalooza!” show to Northeast State Community College on April 17 for two free performances.

Show times are noon and 7 p.m. in the Northeast State Auditorium on the college’s main campus in Blountville, adjacent to Tri-Cities Regional Airport.

Aimes makes audience members the stars of the show by putting them into funny situations as hypnotic subjects. The performance sheds some light on the power of suggestion and influence that can be exerted on human thought with the right prompting. His dramatic flair and uncanny abilities has won over audiences across the country.

Aimes is a board certified hypnotist with the National Board of Hypnotist Education and Certification and studied psychology and theater as an undergraduate. As a student of hypnosis, he trained in Los Angeles and Florida with some of the top hypnotists in the country. Marielle, his wife and stage partner, is also a board certified hypnotist with NBHEC.

Aimes’ performances are being sponsored by the Northeast State Cultural Activities Committee.
