Richard was amazing. He connected well with the 60 or so teenagers (16+). Richard set up 10 chairs in our living room in front of the fireplace. We were very cozy. He hypotized 9 teenagers in the chairs and one audience member. The teenagers in the audience were screaming, laughing, and shaking their heads the whole hour that Richard performed. He had the audience at his finger tips. He was professional, accommodating, and entertaining. For the remaining 2 hours of the party, that is all the kids talked about- the hypnosis show. I would book him again in a minute. You will not be disappointed!
