Experience of Robert Mesmer
Comes from a show business family; his mother played piano in the circus and his father played the trumpet.
Living out of a suitcase in his early years was, to him, a normal existence. He watched many great performers from the wings of the theatres where he worked as a stage hand at the age of twelve. Robert remembers sitting beside Louis Armstrong in the wings between songs.
This stage neighbourhood gave him his first experience with the workings of a magic and hypnosis presentation. Every day since, magic and hypnosis have been the focus of Mesmer’s attention in the entertainment field. He has performed for several years as a close up magician in restaurants and hotels also doing a standup comedy act for conventions and corporate banquets.
Mesmer took six years off to get his Masters Degree with Honours in Psychology. Immediately after this achievement, it was right back on the stage with his Hypnosis and Magic Show!
The Hypnosis Show is unique in that Mesmer, time permitting, includes his BLINDFOLD Act – as seen on television’s “That’s Incredible”.
Mesmer’s venues no longer include the “boot camps” of pubs and restaurants, but venues like cruise ships, corporate functions, universities, high schools, and theatre. No location is too far, from Seattle to Chicago for a one hour corporate banquet and back again the following day for another engagement.
Mesmer’s experience has given him the ability to read an audience so that no one is embarrassed and everyone, from the mailroom worker to the CEO, has a unique and rewarding experience.
Robert Mesmer has traveled all over the world as a headline act with Princess Cruise Lines. He was chosen from hundreds of acts to be one of the headliners on the inaugural cruise of the Diamond Princess out of Los Angeles and the Emerald Princess out of Ft. Lauderdale. He is one of the few entertainers to have performed on all of Princess Cruise Lines’ 17 ships and on all of their itineraries!
Mesmer has also traveled the world with his show, from Australia and New Zealand to the Mediterranean and the UK, Alaska, Mexico, The Caribbean, USA, and Canada.
Performance Style of Robert Mesmer
Over the years Robert has shaped the show to suit a wide variety of venues – 45 minute shows for cruise ships, a one hour show for a corporate banquet, or a 2 hour fundraiser or theatre show.
In fact, Robert can adapt and adjust to the minute of what the client may require.There are no swinging watches, mirror balls or clucking chickens in this hypnosis show. The show does not keep anyone waiting or wanting. It’s fast, precise and polished.
At any one show you may see volunteers swept through space at 25,000 MPH in a weightless condition while their limbs actually float, or riding a surfboard in Hawaii chased by you-know-who. Senses are altered as interaction on a stage between volunteers is unbelievable.
Robert packs his show with lots of action and sound effects. The show is clean throughout and can be adjusted to any time slot. This is a modern, fast paced show with high respect for every single volunteer on stage. Senses are altered, names are forgotten or names can’t be spelled even by the owner. Identities are assumed and interaction between volunteers is amazing.
