The whole world is wondering what could possibly follow the craziness that was 2020 – well, Perth-based comedy hypnotist Matt Hale has the answer.
Matt's Perth Fringe World show 'Bonkers!' is his sixth appearance at the festival.
"It's 60 minutes of absolute silliness, pure fun and laughter using the imagination,” Matt describes. “I've surrounded it in a real energetic party atmosphere, so whether you're on stage or in the audience, you truly feel part of the show.”
That's right – audience members have the option to take their 'Bonkers!' experience to the next level and enjoy it from the stage, where they're free to volunteer. Matt will hypnotise the volunteers to unlock the abilities of their mind. . . Abilities they perhaps never even knew they possessed.
“I’ve created a hypnosis show with a party vibe – it’s a great way to let your guard down for an hour and fill your body with awesome endorphins.”
On that note, the show promises to be a positive mental escape – one we could certainly all use right now. Matt's brand of hypno-laughs is known by many around the world and his shows are never the same. He's excited to let his viewers in on the mystery of the craft.
"I can't wait to feel the buzz of Perth live Fringe World audiences again, as past years have proved they're always up for a really fun night from the moment doors open,” Matt continues. “It's going to be great seeing so many fellow performers finally back on the stage again.”
“I've designed the show so that from the moment you enter, to the moment you leave, you'll be immersed in a ridiculously fun and uplifting atmosphere. You'll be encouraged to suspend reality, and get swept along for one hell of a ride!”
Matt Hale's 'Bonkers!' plays Piazza at Cockburn Gateway Shopping City, Redmond Theatre, Main Hall at Girls School, Preston Room At Rendezvous Hotel and Main Stage at Metro City from 16 January-14 February.
