In 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017  I attended HypnoThoughts in Las Vegas every summer. (http://HTLive.net)

I returned to the Jerry Valley / Tommy Vee / Michael DeSchalit classroom stage hypnosis training in Las Vegas March 2016. (https://www.stagehypnosisseminar.com)

I also attended the Ultimate Stage Hypnosis Conference March 2017; was a presenter at the Ultimate Stage Hypnosis Converence in 2018 and presented at HypnosisWorld in 2019. I am invited back to present at HTLive 2020.

Why do I go?

When I began doing magic lectures, I saw other magicians lecture to learn how to lecture. I knew my material, but I was not polished in ‘how’ to deliver it.

I began doing comedy stage hypnosis shows in 1993. And, beginning in 2013, I have now run ten Bootamp programs with 32 students … but, I know I can always learn more.

I attended Jerry Valley’s 1st stage training in ’99 with Ormond McGill and Shelly Stockwell. His classroom training has improved immensely, and I was able to videotape the whole class. I hope to be able to make the DVDs of that classroom training available, the entire classroom teachings of some dynamite instructors!

I absorbed a lot while I was at each of these classes.

Regardless of whether you buy the DVDs or not, I will share a lot of it with you!
I call my training bootcamp “Coaching.” It’s different than other trainers and how they train because I put you on stage, day after day, show after show.
Doctors don’t become doctors sitting in a classroom. They do classroom, internships and then they practice. Lab work is every year, not after they do classroom.

When I started, I read books, watched other performers, took classes (clinical and stage) and did shows. But I had no coach, no director, no one giving me small, subtle hints on safety and how to be more effective. I wish I had the stage direction I now offer.

My training includes classroom, usually a smattering of reading, watching videos, you get on stage – and you DO shows!

Entire Solo Shows

With an audience of fresh volunteers show after show. No ‘hypno-junkies’ or fellow students. You will get old & young volunteers just like you will get in actual shows! THAT is the only way to learn how to do stage hypnosis!

As one past student said, “Alan pushes you off the dock and into the water, and you learn how to swim” however, I am still there and will not let you drown. I am your lifeguard. You learn to do shows, real shows in the real world. I have a 100% success rate.

Are you ready to become a stage hypnotist? Then The Sandman’s Stage Hypnosis Boot Camp is for you. Add these dates – (Dates to be confirmed shortly) – to your calendar. It’s time to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Other trainers take as many students as they can get, sit ’em in a classroom & lecture them for 1 to 5 days. The students leave the classroom never having done a full show or a real show with people who have never been hypnotized.

Would you take a cooking class and never actually cook? Perhaps using all prepared ingredients?

That’s not how I learn things, and that is not how I coach.

 I take the group and bring them to a classroom. We learn audio, video and discuss the parts of a show so you are ready; then we go to a fairgrounds and you get on stage multiple days in a row, doing shows!

When you leave, you will say, “YES, I can do a show!” with confidence!

I want you to succeed

I have designed my class the way I wish I had the opportunity to learn when I began performing. Half my alumni have asked to come back and participate again so they can improve even more. That is my measure of success! Please, talk to them directly.

What will it take for you to participate?

When you sign up for this class, I give you full access to my VIMEO On Demand videos.


There are close to 200 copies of my show on there. I expect you to either know a good induction or transcribe my induction before you come to class so you have some working knowledge of an induction. If you choose to use your own, that’s OK, too. You will be getting on stage and doing shows, so I really recommend you have some working knowledge of how to do an induction. We will learn the rest together!

These are 12-14 hour days!
This is Stage Hypnosis Boot Camp!
This is not for the faint of heart! You will do shows!

Student Testimonials

This is not a magical course where you leave with amazing knowledge just by osmosis and through assimilation.

You have to work for a week and you will succeed!
