Great article in the New York Times
It's always a thrill when I get 'coverage'. Here's a nice article from a couple of years ago.
I remember Chris, reporter, was very eager for me to hypnotize him. I was nervous, because I knew if I didn't do a good job, that would be the crux of the story.
In the end, he was a wonderful 'client' and as you will see from the article, the experience was profound.
There's one fact that didn't make it into the story. I called the reporter Chris, when the article was finally published to thank him for such a nice piece. He mentioned I had 'cured' his insomnia. That night and the nights that followed our meeting, he had slept better than he had in year. The weird part is: I hadn't known about his sleep issues or mentioned them during his short trance session. His mind had done the work all by itself.
Man this stuff is AMAZING.
Planning a post-prom, post-graduation or Project Graduation event?
Need to find entertainment that will engage and excite?
Peter has done dozens of late-night shows and has the show that will be the highlight of the night.
Peter spent years performing stand-up comedy before beginning to entertain with hypnosis. That's why the results are so profoundly positive...
"Priceless entertainment...a hilariously entertaining night. We can't wait to see you back in Wayland again.

Stage Hypnosis shows are often a perfect solution for a corporate event, sales kickoff, product rollout, celebration. But strangely people rarely consider a Stage Hypnotist show for these events and others because they are confused about what condition make for a GREAT STAGE HYPNOSIS SHOW, while others have a firm but incorrect impression. So here, once and for all, let me lay down my top 3 conditions when you should call stage hypnotist Peter Gross to come and perform:
When you have an audience of at least 50 people - Because a good stage hypnosis is doing real hypnosis and wants to spend most of the show creating fun skits and suggestions with volunteer who have found a deep and flexible trance state, it's best to have a group of at least 50 people. I only work with volunteers for my stage hypnosis, but I always have 15-18 chairs on stage for volunteers. When I do shows with smaller groups, I have to ask EVERYONE to participate because I never know who will be the best subjects for my show. For smaller groups, I always suggest my mentalism show because although it also involves lots of help from the crowd, there are roles for those who would rather sit in their chairs in the audience and mostly watch the proceedings.
When people know each other - This doesn't actually make for a better show, but for some people, knowing the volunteers on stage creates a very different experience. These Doubting Thomas's will often tell me or others " I didn't believe that hypnosis was real until I saw [insert name of friend or work colleague] up there, dancing." People are naturally skeptical of how powerful hypnotic trance can be, but seeing someone they know proves that I don't use a dozen actors to create the show.
When people can literally see the show - I'm not a huge fan of people overusing the term 'literally' when they just want to express importance or relevance. In this case I am referring to sight lines, a stage and proper seating for the audience. Hypnosis shows are very visual and if people can't see the show, they can't enjoy it. I have forced audiences to sit on the floor when no stage is provided. Don't make me get your dress pants dusty. Okay Sparky?
The emphasis of my hypnosis shows is always comedy and fun, but I truly believe ( and have lots of evidence to rely on) that my shows educate my audiences about the power of hypnosis. As a hypnotist I want the world to take the power of the mind quite seriously.
Need evidence of the power of the mind/body connection. Can our thoughts actually change our bodies?
A great night at the Firehouse Center for the Arts in Newburyport. A big 'thanks' goes out to Kimm and the whole staff at the Firehouse who always make me feel like a star. Happy people filled the seats and saw a brand new version of my show, for the first time combining my hypnosis with mentalism. The result was two acts, and almost 2 hours of material. Of course my focus was on the mentalism: reading people minds, revealing secrets ( only safe ones) and predicting behaviors. All fun and successful and ( hopefully) entertaining.
I haven't seen any pictures from the event, but I'm hoping that people will be sharing them soon.
In the meanwhile, if you live in Southern Maine, come see me at York Community college in Wells ME.
It seems like retailers are constantly pushing the calendar back. Last week I saw Thanksgiving themed displays in my supermarket, and it’s not even Halloween. Of course I have been on this trend forever, we never take down our Christmas lights because we start prepping for Christmas on Dec 26.
The point is NOW IS THE TIME TO BOOK HYPNOTIST PETER GROSS FOR YOUR HOLIDAY PARTY. My calendar is still relatively open (although the cruise ships have reserved one week in the Caribbean). Without realizing a majority of people often choose the same date for their holiday event. So if you’re looking for real quality entertainment, and a show that clean and funny, contact me now.
Wecome to the new home of Hypnotist Peter Gross. Several years ago Google announced the obvious: more and more people were searching for everything, including comedy hypnotists, on tablets and phones. My old site looked great on a laptop or desktop, but on a phone it looked…unfortunate. Now no matter what type of device you use to surf (except maybe an actual surfboard) this site should provide the best material on hiring or booking a hypnotist show for your next event.
