What will it take for you to participate?

When you sign up for this class, I refund you for your paid access to any one channel of my VIMEO On Demand libraries.


There are hundreds of 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!

Returned to Boot Camp twice – 2014 & 2015

In 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017  I attended HypnoThoughts (presenting in 2016 and 2017) in Las Vegas. (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, The SandMan’s Stage Hypnosis Bootcamp. I have now run ten Bootcamp programs with 33 students … and I know I can always learn more.

I attended Jerry Valley’s 1st stage training in ’99 with Ormond McGill and Shelly Stockwell.

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

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.

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

Our training includes classroom, usually a smattering of reading, watching videos, you get on stage – but most of all … 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! You will have large audiences and small audiences, just like in real life.

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  – 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 or perhaps the class uses all canned and frozen, pre-prepared ingredients?

That’s not how people 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!
