To assist you in booking Dave Rawson, London-based Hypnotist for your upcoming event, we recently had a Q&A session with him!
Q: What are the most common events that you perform at?
A: I perform mainly in Hotels and Cabaret Venues.
Q: How long have you been in the entertainment industry?
A: I’ve been in the entertainment business for 25 years now, and I’ve loved every minute of it!
Q: Whereabouts have you played in the country/world?
A: I’ve been lucky enough to play all over the world. I’ve performed in Thailand, Goa, USA, Hong Kong, Canary Islands, Spain, Egypt, Turkey and on Cruise Ships. For the past 18 years, I’ve enjoyed performing a lot on the island of Ibiza.
Q: Is there audience interaction in your act?
A: The whole of my Comedy Show is audience participation. It’s a family show for all ages but people who volunteer must be a minimum of 18 years old.
Q: What do you personally enjoy most about performing?
A: I love performing my show because it’s different every night. I never know what’s going to happen on stage with my wonderful participants!
Q: What’s the biggest crowd you’ve performed to so far?
A: Most of my shows are performed to an average audience of 750 every night. The biggest one was on board cruise chips, where the audience would be 1500.
Q: Do you have any video links on your Profile for a booker to view your act?
A: Video clips of my shows can be found on my Entertainers Worldwide profile.
Q: What is the average duration of your act?
A: My set usually lasts around 75 minutes but I can adapt this depending on the booker’s requirements.
Q: Do you have an interval?
A: I don’t normally have an interval in my show, unless I am working in a Theatre and I’ve booked the venue for the entire evening. Then I perform a 2 hour show plus a 20 minute break.
Q: Are you insured for Public Liability?
A: I am insured for Public Liability.
Q: Do you sell any merchandise?
A: I video the show and give participants the opportunity to buy a copy on DVD. I also sell CDs to help with Stopping Smoking, Losing Weight, Relaxation and Confidence Boosting. You can find the Stop Smoking CD on my Entertainers Worldwide profile.
A: I also have another show called PUSH THE BUZZER, a 90 minute TV style gameshow involving all the audience. You can find a link to the website on my profile.
Q: How long before the event do you typically arrive at the venue?
A: I arrive 1 hour prior to the show to give myself time to set up and prepare.
Q: How far in advance would you advise that the booker book you?
A: I would advise booking as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. My show gets booked up 6 months in advance.
Q: What kind of outfit will you wear?
A: I always wear a suit.
Q: Does your pricing change during popular seasons?
A: The price of my show changes more depending on the location of the show rather than the time of year.
