My name is Alan Sands and I go by the name, "The SandMan"
I am a Comedy Hypnotist & a Comedy Magician.
I perform two "PG" shows for * High Schools * Colleges * Fairs * Festivals * Corporate Parties * Private Parties.
I have been a professional entertainer since before I was born. My father, George Sands, was a world-renowned magician, pioneer of rope tricks and balloon sculpture, and author of 12 books on magic.
My career has taken me to 46 US States and seven other countries. I have worked for cruise ships, Las Vegas casinos, hundreds of fairs and festivals including ten state fairs, hundreds of high schools, colleges, and countless corporate events.
I offer two acts, both are family-friendly entertainment. I do a comedy hypnosis show and a comedy magic show. I have spent my life performing and entertaining. It is all I do and virtually all I have done.
"Alan Sands / Comedy Hypnotist - The The SandMan"
"The SandMan" performs a fast-paced, 60-90 minute comedy hypnosis show. It is one of the most powerful forms of entertainment you will ever witness. Volunteers do an improv show and Alan is the director. The SandMan expands the imaginations of the subjects; while telling comedic stories; the volunteers act out the parts.
Volunteers ride a roller coaster and go bungee jumping. They become convinced that their spirit has been removed from their body and placed inside two dozen different things, from a gold fish to a bag of microwave popcorn. Each show is new and different and always hilariously unpredictable!
"The Magical Comedy of Alan Sands"
Alan's father was a "magician's magician" and Alan has been performing his comedy magic show for over 30 years. It is a 37-42 minute prop-comedy, audience participation, situation comedy magic, escapes, mind reading and eccentric balloon show will leave people laughing so hard they cry.
Seasoned as a street-performer in San Francisco and the Catskill Hotels of upstate NY, Alan has performed in every situation imaginable and can hold any audience riveted in their seats.
This act is infallible for any audience, ages 7 to 107 with solid fun routines for everyone, incorporating classic and original routines that make your guests the stars of the show.
Alan quite often will perform both of his magic and hypnosis acts as a 2+ hour comedy concert and GUARANTEES no one will leave their seats.
