This past weekend I attended the farewell tour for Andre the Hilarious Hypnotist at the at Montecasino.
Andre is one of South Africa’s funniest entertainers and I got to experience why he is a firm favourite on the Johannesburg theatre scene. 2020 sees him return to The Studio Theatre at Montecasino from Wednesday 22nd January – Sunday 23 rd February. This time however it will be a bitter sweet encounter as part of Andre’s FAREWELL TOUR.
After an unprecedented 28 years in the industry, this will be the last time
Joburg audiences will be able to enjoy Andre in action as he presents his
Andre The Hilarious Hypnotist Farewell Tour. Andre will be hanging up his colourful coat as he leaves South Africa to move abroad.
The second opening show on Friday night proved to be exceptionally entertaining evening and had me on the edge of my seat. Andre had some willing participants from people in attendance, but I wasn’t one of them. I’ve always been somewhat of a sceptic when it comes to hypnosis but I was more afraid of what my behaviour on stage with be. I’m going to happily admit that Andre’ removed any doubt that I may have had.
Andre combines his skills in comedy and hypnosis to create a 2-hour show of side splitting entertainment suitable for all ages. Andre takes his volunteers on a hilarious hypnotic journey in which they imagine they are sprinklers, dinosaurs, washing machines, Superman and Mrs South Africa, with Michael Jackson and Christina Aguilera added for good measure.
The outcome of the show depends purely on the people up on the stage therefore no two shows are the same. This actually proves the pure genius that is Andre The Hilarious Hypnotist. This fast paced fun show featured two people I know which made it all the more fun. It was a non-stop laugh a minute show that was hilariously funny.
