Look Into His Eyes: Hypnotism on Stage
Doug Thompson of Marion has been performing as a comedian for over a decade. A few years ago, he was inspired to expand his skill set and learn hypnosis -- after seeing a really bad set.
"I was watching this act, and I just thought, this could be so much more," Thompson says. "I'm that kind of person who always wants to be learning and growing."
Thompson has been studying hypnosis for six years. He tours and performs full time, and he also works with clients who are looking to quit smoking, improve their athletic ability and conquer their fears. During this Talk of Iowa segment, Thompson talks with host Charity Nebbe about life on the road, the power of suggestion, and how hypnosis works.
