Hypnotist Peter Powers has developed a reputation for turning the most straight-laced person weird and wacky. His nickname, "The Ali G of Stage Hypnosis", wasn't developed overnight.
"I was 12 and I saw hypnosis on TV and I tried it out on my younger brother," Powers said.
"I went to the library and read up on books so I could practise on him and school friends."
Soon he had his first performance in front of his classmates at 15. Since then he has performed around the world and made 60 TV shows which have been broadcast in 20 countries.
He starts his Peter Powers Live on Stage tour around the country this month. One of his stops is Blacktown RSL Club on Saturday, September 28, at 8pm. The show has new props, routines and a stripper's pole. Cost: $35 (adults), $30 (diamond customers).
