Flip Orley is single-handedly reshaping the image of hypnosis from something perceived to be of the vaudeville era into something palatable for the MTV generation. His one-man show is setting comedy club attendance records from coast to coast as audiences catch on to his fresh combination of hypnotism and comedy. The Dallas Morning News reports "It's of trailer-park dwellers from Arkansas, Southern accent and all!"
Orley has appeared on “Comic Strip Live”, and other variety shows. He's acted in “The Gambler” with Kenny Rogers, and worked with Robin Williams, Jay Leno, and Kevin Meaney among others. But it is his uncanny way with subjects, his finely tuned power of suggestion and rapid fire delivery that keeps audiences coming back for more. Unlike past generations of hypnotists, Orley does not humiliate his subjects for comic effect, but entertains by enlightening his audience. "I want the audience to laugh with them, not at them", he says. "This is the purest form of improvisational entertainment you will ever see as the show rewrite itself every night, and the volunteers are my partners, not my victims."
Orley's journey to becoming the most innovative hypnotist of his time began by his purchasing a book when he was in the 6th grade called How to Pick Up Girls Through Hypnotism. Although the advice in that particular book did not pay off, Orley became obsessed with the subject matter and learned everything he could about it. He eventually graduated from the Chicago Institute of Hypnotism, studying with Wayne Perkins, one of the leading teacher/researchers in the world, with the intention of becoming a clinical hypnotist. It was while majoring in psychology at the University of Arizona, however, that Orley discovered stand-up comedy. Hypnosis took second place for a time as Orley honed his comedic skills in small clubs around the country. He eventually hit upon the idea of combining the two, and was able to successfully hypnotize 20 subjects on stage with his very first try. The rest is comedy club history.
