Our group had a fantastic time with Richard Barker. He walked me through the set up and everything he needed and then he took care of everything else from there with the hotel convention people> We had a blast, he is very professional and extremely appropriate and funny. This was without a doubt the highlight of our convention. People are still talking about the show, it was hilarious and well worth it. We did see cheaper guys out there initially but I think Richard is a cut above the rest- thank you thank you thank you !!!!
Barker started his career in hypnosis as a member of the United Kingdom's elite forces known as the Royal Green Jackets; a crack military organization. As a specialized soldier, he was trained in Neuro-Linguistic Programming and began his journey into hypnosis learning language negotiation and persuasion skills. After his military career, Richard expanded his hypnotic skills as a Police Detective; helping witnesses and criminals alike to recall information forgotten. It was also at this time that Barker started performing as much as he could to perfect his globally recognized comedy hypnosis show. It didn't take long before the Incredible Hypnotist became a full-time performer, entertainer and trainer.
Now, the Incredible Hypnotist is a highly sought-after hypnotist that has been featured in countless media outlets and publications. Richard's work can see been on: The Today Show, The Late Late Show with James Corden, ET Entertainment Tonight, Reader's Digest, Huffington Post, Glamour Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Marie Claire, US Weekly, Google Talks, Health Magazine, Self Magazine, Men's Fitness, InStyle, YouTube Creator Summit, CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC, as well as many major news shows and publications across the globe.
Richard chooses to focus most of his efforts on comedy hypnosis performances because he feels it's a marvelous introduction into the world of hypnosis. “I give the people a compelling, fascinating and entertaining entry into hypnosis and after that, they become curious as to what the mind can actually do.” Although he is a comedy stage hypnotist, Richard Barker constantly re-frames the entertainment aspect of hypnosis back to the hypothetical question, “What if hypnosis could help you with a health-related issue?”
Richard Barker has written two books that focus on sharing his expert knowledge and experience for those seeking to become hypnotists or to learn covert hypnosis techniques for use in their personal and professional lives. Both titles can be purchased on his website.
