Get ready to see some very zen Perthlings wondering around, Matt Hale is back and better than ever with a new edition of his comedy hypnotism show.

Working solely with volunteers from the crowd, Hale’s Feelgood Factory offers an incredible (and hilarious) insight into the world of hypnosis.

With just a relaxation exercise and a few simple sensory cues, Hale had the volunteers firmly under his spell.

The audience was wowed by how quickly their friends and family went from being their normal selves, to dancing like no one was watching, and enthusiastically adopting any character Hale assigned to them.

From speaking in shark to embodying the fun police, the show is side-splitting funny and leaves no doubt about Hale’s legitimately as a hypnotist.

A real highlight for the packed crowd was when our newly hypnotised friends reviewed talent show acts they’d never actually seen, with an attitude assigned to them by Hale.

While one lady was almost in tears explaining how inspired she was by the last (imaginary) contestant, another couldn’t have been more incensed, exclaiming to the crowd, in no uncertain terms, that it was a colossal waste of his time.

Through all the hypnotised show-goers running around on stage, Feelgood Factory remains wholesome to the core.

Hale isn’t out to embarrass anyone. Rather, he uses his impeccable timing and humour to show us what hypnotism can do.

Underneath the singing, dancing and fun is a reminder to us all of how we can use our thoughts to change our habits, our outlooks and live a “Feelgood” life.

Love the show? Have your say!
