How much does a comedy hypnotist or keynote speaker cost? Price and Budget?
Pricing depends on many factors such as date, audience size, show length, where the show is being held and costs to get there. We can provide an all-inclusive quote

Length and content.
Content is always tasteful and approppriate. Boris provides motivation for the attendees. Comedy and laughter are the main focus along with team building and inspiration. We suggest 60-90 minute shows, but depending on event schedule, can range from 45 minutes to 2 hours. Show routines are selected specifically for the audience and change every performance. Please watch videos
to see what to expect and sentiment of every presentation. The amount of time on stage dictates the quantity of skits and type of material.

Motivational and Team building.
Every performance can be presented as an entertaining motivational activity - Boris provides team motivation and inspiration by demonstrating how to overcome mental blocks in life an business. It is a fantastic way to get your group bonding and engaged.
How big is the audience?
The show has been performed for audiences of all sizes - as little as 50 people and as many as 15,000. Boris is a master showman that caters the presentation to his audience and delivers an unprecedented impact.
Stage, Sound, Lights and Video?
- Sound can be provided when Boris drives to the venue, otherwise you will require a sound system suitable for the size of the audience. If you are using a DJ for the event, their sound system can be used for the performance. Generally, built-in hotel meeting room sound systems are not suitable for a show and we suggest to get a PA system. A microphone (wireless preferred) and input into the sound board is required for musical skits.
- General stage lighting for smaller audiences or soft wash for larger events.
- Stage area (or dance floor) that fits 10-20 chairs side by side in a straight line is ideal. If risers are used, they should be placed against the back wall. A staircase is required for participants to join Boris on stage.
- Closed circuit cameras and projection screens can be used for large audiences. Suggested Stage Plot.
Number of shows and dates.
- What are the show dates?
- How many performances are involved - is it a single show or multiple performances such as a Broadway run?
- Is the performance private or is it open to the public - how much are the tickets and what is venue capacity?
- What time do you need the performer to arrive and when is the sound check?
Working with a limited Budget?
Every situation is considered and every effort is made to accomodate the budget, no matter how tight.
Should I make this a surprise?
. Let everyone know
! The mental buildup gets people into the right frame of mind long before the performance starts. Announce an upcoming hypnosis show or keynote speaker to create unprecedented word of mouth at your function to have people eager in anticipation.
Timing of the presentation?
Ideally, the performance should be slated as a keynote with theater-style seating. At events where food is served, the presentation should be scheduled as after-dinner entertainment, since the interactive portion requires participants and we do not want them to miss a great meal.
Do I need to provide a list of people to hypnotize?
. Show participants are audience volunteers. After a brief explanation participants are invited on stage to get hypnotized. Nothing is pre-arranged and the hypnosis induction is performed right in front of the audience.
Can you incorporate our event theme into the presentation?
Boris regularly includes different themes into his shows. If you need material to be written specifically for your event, let us know. These routines often get tested elewhere to make them perfect for your event.
Will anyone get humiliated or degraded?
! Hilarious routines are carefully crafted to motivate and inspire. Participants become stars. Boris demonstrates through funny skits numerous examples of positive thinking and motivation to succeed.
