So last night was the night that I had tweeted, facebooked and generally shouted about from the roof tops, the night when David Bolton would be performing live on stage at The Apollo Cinema in Rhyl.

All I can say is to those that refused the invitation to come to the show, seriously missed out on an amazing show from David Bolton, as he hypnotised members of the audience to do some really funny things, such as rowing a boat, being a super spy and even a nit nurse!

David Bolton Performed HypnoMagic Live @ApolloCinemas Rhyl

So the night kicked off at about 7:45 with David Bolton explaining to everyone a little bit about hypnosis and what he does in his show and the safety aspects on who can and shouldn’t come up to the stage to be hypnotised.

Then after a little coaxing of the audience several of them took the plunge and took to the stage for the night of fun to begin.

Now I do have to say that I was little sceptical at first, as I am probably one of the few people who can’t be hypnotised and believe me I have tried it to help with the habit of biting my nails, but nothing,  so I wasn’t really sure that this was going to be a good show or not, oh how wrong I was.

Right from the very start when David Bolton placed the audience members in a state of trance, I could see that this was going to be a special evening and that my chuckle and face muscles were going to get a damn good work out, which they most certainly did!

The first part of the evening was some simple things to start off with, but even these had myself and the audience in fits of laughter, but the best was yet to come with the second half of the show and the interval!

Have You Met My Mate Harvey!

So just before the interval, two of the participants of the show were told that during the interval they would be doing something and these were that one guy would go around introducing everyone to his six-foot, invisible rabbit, friend called Harvey and the other would be a Sargent Major telling everyone to get back to Barracks.

Suffice to say that Harvey seemed a rather friendly rabbit as the guy introduced us to him in the bar and around the Cinema 😆 😉

And So On To The Second Half

As I mentioned earlier the second half of the show was even funnier, with some crazy stuff going on, dancing, glasses that made the participants think that every in the audience was naked and loads, loads more. I’ve never laughed so much in my life and we wasn’t all laughing at the people who were hypnotised, it was more of laughing with them.

My only hope this that David Bolton, will return to the Apollo Cinema and do another show and if we can get the word around how brilliant it was. As I’ve always said the Apollo Cinema isn’t just a place for films, it’s a place to meet up, have fun and see events such as this one, in my humble point of view there should be loads more.

So if you missed the show last night, then get on over to the Apollo Cinema in Rhyl and ask them for more events like this and find out when other events are on. Go on live a little 😉
