The Incredible Boris Biography

Boris Cherniak is a multiple award winning comedian hypnotist, motivational speaker, actor and author. He regularly appears on television showcasing incredible powers of hypnosis and power of positive thinking. Boris motivates and inspires. He regularly performs at over 300 events per year. Boris presents a comical point of view, while leaving a lasting impression and enlightening his audiences. His stage name, Incredible Boris Cherniak, describes the sentiment of every performance literally - a positive attitude and constant state of mind. Boris delivers a powerful message of limitless possibilities.

Boris started hypnotizing as a teenager at parties and get-togethers. Early on, friends provided ideas, which have evolved into dramatic and theatrical stage routines today. Boris' creativity and desire to succeed drove him to learn more and perform as much as he could. Incredible amount of stage time and determination allowed development of a unique stage persona and wealth of unforgettable stage routines. He continued gathering all available information about hypnosis, psychology and any other related subjects. York University, University of Toronto and Seneca College provided training in the fields of psychology and computers. Even though the two fields do not appear to be related, computer and mind programming are very similar and provide logical solutions to given instructions. Boris continues to empower and motivate others as part of an entertaining presentation. He is a certified hypnotist and hypnotherapist, whose practice encompasses the entertainment field and motivational team building events. Boris is a member of several hypnosis guilds and organizations. His motivational book of life experiences to inspire the reader, "You Can Do Anything", is available on Amazon, and audiobook (narrated by Boris) on Audible.

Initially, Boris used his first name only, similar to other one-name performers. Eventually, after agents, promoters and club owners kept adding different adjectives, he adapted Hypnotist "Incredible" Boris Cherniak, which described the sentiment of the show more precisely. "Incredible" was used the most.

First professional engagement as a comedy hypnotist at the age of 17, gave start to a vast entertainment career that lead to worldwide performances from Amsterdam to Bermuda, Asia, Middle East and across USA and Canada. Boris' entertaining career spans over 35 years. Boris regularly performs in venues from theatres and nightclubs, colleges and universities, to corporate events, fairs, comedy clubs, theater and casino showrooms. The show is hilarious and audience members shine in front of their peers and friends. Breaking numerous attendance records, word of mouth has been the best form of advertisement. The show is called A Hilarious Hypnotic Event with Hypnotist "Incredible" Boris Cherniak.

The show always delivers a positive message. Participants are treated with dignity and respect, while showcasing unlimited potential and immense powers of the mind. Positive suggestions are implanted in participants and audience as thanks for their involvement. The show breaks ground and elevates the observer to a higher level of consciousness. The best way to learn is through laughter.

Trademarked catch phrase Let It Sync In ™ or Let It Sink In ™ signifies a suggestion given to the participants.
