Hypnotist Chris Jones

Hypnotist Chris Jones will perform his mind boggling act at 8:00pm, Friday, February 24, at the CAC Theater in front of a live audience. Admission rates are: free for students, $5 for faculty and staff; and $8 for the general public. No registration is required.

Jones is a hypnotist, comedian and the host of the prank series Double Take on Facebook Watch. In each episode of the new series, Jones conspires with a different celebrity — from John Cena to Pamela Anderson and NeNe Leakes — to give one adoring fan the surprise of a lifetime which is meeting and interacting with their idol in a range of crazy circumstances, though under hypnosis, unable to recognize them.

He performs over 200 shows a year. Jones is well known for his appearance on America’s Got Talent when he made the impossible happen. Known germaphobe Howie Mandel shook hands with Heidi, Howard, and Mel live. Since his first TV appearance, Chris has performed on shows like The Steve Harvey Show, Windy City Live, Good Day Chicago, Penn and Teller, Scam School, and the Adam Carolla Show.
