Winner of 3 national comedy awards, Matt Hale is a professional comedy stage hypnotist based in Australia. Having hypnotised people around the world from London to Vegas (where even Mike Tyson told him ‘You are AMAZING!’), Matt currently provides his show for events of all sizes.
Combining the fun of total audience participation with the incredible abilities of the mind, Matthew turns the traditional hypnosis show on its head, highlighting the talents and creativity of the volunteers for big laughs instead of embarrassing them. No two shows are ever the same!
Expect to see hypnotised volunteers transported into bizarre car journeys, talking alien and unleashing talents they never knew they had.
In addition to his live shows, Matt trains stage hypnotists, has released his own range of hypnosis CDs, and conducts group seminars on a variety of subjects including memory, stressbusting, motivation, weight management, and smoking cessation.
He's appeared in media as diverse as the UK's tabloids, BBC, ABC, Today Tonight and has been included in the National Film and Sound Archive and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not.

Family friendly, suitable for ages 10+ to attend, however participants on stage need to be 16+. Incredibly easy production to stage, as the minimum requirement for venues is to provide chairs to use for the volunteers on stage/performance area.
Matt set out to showcase this unique, fun and fascinating art in a modern tasteful way, in which all those who take part feel proud and amazed about their participation, and along with those watching, have a night they’ll talk about for years in a positive way. With years of shows under his belt in Australia, UK & Asia, from the smallest of country towns, to cruise ships, to metropolitan theatres, to huge corporate gigs for some of Australia’s biggest companies, Matt's sense of fun engages and amuses a wide range of audiences. Alongside the shows, Matt also runs various seminars/workshops on Memory, Stressbusting, Weight Loss, Quit Smoking and more in which he guides attendees how to make the changes they want easily with his special set of mind techniques.

Unique Selling Point
Matt has created a fun, family friendly, tasteful show that leaves a community with a fun, positive experience (both audience & participants) that creates buzz and talk for a long time after. Previous presenters have highlighted the importance of such a night of shared fun and laughter to help a community thrive. There is also the chance for Matt to share “Matt’s Marvellous Memory Workshop” with the community in a bid to help people use their mind and memory more effectively in everyday life.
Posters, photos, press releases available. Country Arts WA created their own posters/flyers/tvc for a previous tour, an arrangement may be able to be made to use that. Raw video footage is available to use in TVCs. The show creates a lot of media interest and Matt conducts many press and studio interviews - the option for Matt to hypnotise people for in-studio interviews has proved incredibly popular, and a fantastic way to promote the show. We are very active on social media, engaging ahead of the show with the presenter's facebook page etc, posting and responding to others’ posts.
