It’s back! And it’s bigger and brassier than ever.


This years Harlequin Hypnosis Show will be taking a slightly different format with live music, and some additional features which will make the evening an even more enjoyable night out. We’ll be running for two evenings in October, and are bringing some new features to the night as well as retaining the most popular aspects of what we’ve done so far.

We love it when people come dressed for the show. If you are looking for costumes we’re always happy to point you in the right direction, and we may soon have a few bits and pieces for sale through our site. Keep checking back and you’ll see us adding bits and pieces as they are developed.

We have sold out most of our recent shows, so now is a good time to get those tickets and organise a group of friends to come and see a show that has been described as ‘the future of stage hypnosis’. We’d love to see you there.

Rob, Sharlene and Angie.


This years show comes to you with a host of new features, including Persons Of Interest and new and exciting hypnosis sets. We’re looking forward to meeting new friends and welcoming back our faithful followers.

Rob has performed on four continents in hundreds of shows. His hypnosis performances have marked him out as Gigmasters top hypnotist in the North West for the last five years.

During a performance career that has taken him from Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, Rob has seen it all. “I’ve blown up speakers at stadiums in Seattle and had a stage collapse in Kelowna,” he jokes.

Favourite review: “Rob is the most exciting thing to happen in Whitehorse since the Billy Bob’s trailer burned down and nearly took the park with it!”

Sharlene will hypnotise and mesmerise you with her unique brand of skills. She has been an entertainer for 12 years, thrilling audiences throughout Canada and the US.

Most awkward moment on stage: “Rob had hired some mics from a supplier we don’t usually use, and I couldn’t get the thing to work – and two minutes before we go on stage I’m all “#3$${‘ing mic!”, not realizing the entire theatre could hear what I was saying. So, you know that scar above Rob’s eye? Well, now you know how he got it.

I’m very mild mannered usually.”

Vicki Lynn Rae

Vicki currently lives and works in New Westminster, BC. She received formal training at the Lorenzo di Medici Art Institute in Florence, Italy and is otherwise ‘self taught’. A Vancouverite with Native Canadian and South African roots Vicki has explored various themes such as SAFARI and other wildlife subjects, dance and human experience, spirituality and psychology. Using a striking, vivid pallet, expressionism and the full spectrum of human emotion Vicki’s body of work honours and embraces the light and the shadow, and en masse, is a captivating visual journal of her life and experiences. “Employing intuition as a guide and raw emotion as fuel, I give all of myself to my Art. I engage with each piece, as if in a dance. Allowing the painting to lead me I aim to reveal it’s unique energy, it’s voice and the story it has to tell.”
