What they're saying

C.J.'s show is quite frankly AWESOME. But don't take our word for it - listen to people who have hosted the show!

"I've seen several hypnotist shows and I still think you are one of the best. The students are constantly laughing, it seems to get even the "too cool for school" students to laugh! Loved it! Thanks so much for coming to Chowan University."

Frances Cole
Chowan University

"I Wanted to take the time to thank you kindly for helping to make this an incredible and fun event! I still have peers telling me how much they enjoyed the show and how they would want to try getting hypnotized next time we do something along the lines of this event!

You really made this an amazing event, I had high hopes for you and you more than reached my expectations! Thank you for your time and for taking the drive here and back with a smile on your face and being ready to perform! Thank you also for creating a super inclusive environment and making everyone participate in some way so everyone could have fun!

I am super glad to have found you and hired you over the other options presented to me as I feel that I made a great choice going with you!"

"C.J.’s show went wonderfully!  He got here on time, was friendly, professional, and put on a great show!  This is the first time we’ve ever had anything like this year (and we are kind of short on ideal venues) but C.J. was upbeat and flexible and had a good turnout for our student population.  We would definitely look into bringing him back!"

"Thanks so much for entertaining us in Austin! I can't remember when I last laughed as hard as I did. Our group is still talking about your show!
Our clients lead busy, stressful lives. You were just what they needed to cut loose and have some fun."

"C.J. Johnson was a hilarious hypnotist, we all loved his show. The crowd was rolling with laughter. It was fun for the whole family. You da man C.J."

Adina Guerro and the Campus Activities Board
Texas Woman’s University - Denton, TX

"Thank you for the wonderful performance by C.J. Johnson.  Mr. Johnson displayed wonderful talent, wit and professional courtesy.  The Gaming industry is ultimately about fun, relaxation and serves to act as a moment of escapism from the rigors of life.  C.J. Johnson's hypnosis show exemplified these factors and the crowd loved it!"

Christian Printup, Special Events Manager
The Palace Casino

"C.J. was wonderful, it was amazing how he got the students on stage to do everything he said, you could tell they were really hypnotized, they weren’t faking it. The students who were watching really had a blast seeing their friends up there doing things they would never do - it was just hilarious. He did a wonderful job and we’ll definitely bring him back again next year!"

"As a professional meeting planner, I am always looking for fresh and new entertainment for my corporate groups.  Your show is certainly that and more!

I have had countless comments and compliments from the two Kroger groups for whom you performed a few weeks ago.  Everyone enjoyed seeing their friends and co-workers as a part of the show, and all were amazed at how effortlessly you were able to put them into a hypnotic state.  The show was funny, in good taste, and an evening my client's employees will long remember."

Carol Gillenwater, President
Corporate Meetings Unlimited, The Woodlands, TX

"CJ was fantastic and the show was very enjoyable, both to the students and to the staff whom were able to attend. The students stuck around well after the event concluded to talk about how much they enjoyed the show. Several of them approached Ali and I to find out if/when CJ might be coming back, so we will definitely keep him, and Everything but the Mime, Inc in mind as we look to plan future events here at Gwynedd-Mercy College."

Becky AxeRosa

"Once again, thank you very much for the incredible performance you provided at our annual awards banquet and gala.  It truly was a night to be remembered by all.  I still hear people talking about it from time to time, especially some of the people from our corporate offices who flew into Austin specifically for this event.  It indeed was an overwhelming success."

Brenda Hatch, Administrative Coordinator
Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide

"Your hypnotist show at our Holiday Party was marvelous.  It was great getting our employees involved in the show.  You were extremely entertaining, creating many memorable laughs seeing our co-workers hypnotized.  I would highly recommend your services to any group who is looking for an unusual and humorous form of entertainment.  You were a delight to work with.  I am sure everyone will remember your show for years to come."

Kathie W. -- Marketing Systems Group

"I wanted to tell you that we still are receiving comments from our employees about your show. Many people have said that they had not laughed that hard in quite some time - and that they "needed" it. We have been asked, "what are you going to do next year to top this?" And honestly, we don’t know!

Thanks so much for your time. You were wonderful with the audience. The program truly lifted moral around our office!"

Joyce Gray

Christa Vaughn - Director of Program Council

"They loved the show!  All the Project Graduation committee heard were great comments from the kids.  It was fun for them to have their peers as the main attraction.  The whole show was done in good taste.  We would also like to thank you for all of your professionalism before the show as well as during and after the show.  It is nice to work with someone who is so organized.  You gave great instructions on what was needed for the show, and what was needed was minor and easily obtained.  It was a pleasure doing business with you."

Vickie Rogers and the 
Montgomery High School Project Graduation Committee

Thanks for a job well done!!!  The kids had a BLAST.  All of the adults there said it was the best hypnotist show they had ever seen.  We'll pass the word on to next years class.  Thanks again!

"Thanks a million - believe me when I say "you're the talk of Marble Falls" (in a great way)"

Marble Falls High School, Project Graduation

"The turnout was unbelievable!  It was the largest turnout we've ever had at an event, excluding concerts.  We weren't expecting as many people as we had - and it was great.  The students really enjoyed it and I laughed so hard that I cried.  It was unbelievable."

Andie Chiasson
Student Programming Board
Nicholls State University, Thibodaux, LA

"The dynamics were great, and we were able to kick off the new semester with a bang.  We were so pleased that the venue was packed, and with the additional students standing, there wasn't any extra space available.  We estimate that there were as many as 1000 students in attendance.  Our students are still talking about the show, and how funny their peers and friends were when they were hypnotized."

"I was kind of leary about "hypnotists" until I saw you at work - WOW!  You were truly amazing! ... I was the 'star' of the whole District Meeting because of the choice I made for the luncheon entertainment... We have a District Meeting every year and I am hoping you can come back again next year!"

Karrie Sasich

"Your show last night was fantastic!   I have seen many hypnotists in my years of activities programming on the college campus, and you are truly one of the best.  Your professionalism and showmanship are superb, and your rapport with students on stage, as well as with those in the audience is electric.  Nothing like an hour and a half of non-stop laughter to welcome new and returning students back to campus.  I highly recommend your show to colleges and universities across the nation and would be happy to speak to them on your behalf: (512) 464-8821.

Thanks for bringing us two consecutive years of fun, extremely high quality entertainment!"

Pete Erickson, Assistant Director of Student Life

"Thank you for showing me that hypnotism is a real thing...  I didn't believe it at first....then you came to Nicholls State University and hypnotized me!!!  It was the single most weirdest experience of my life.  And the best...  Thanks again."

"Let me just tell you CJ how much all of us, parents and students, enjoyed your program.  You have continually given a wonderful performance to  Humble High School  and it is so appreciated by us.   The kids always ask each year if the hypnotist will be at Project Grad.   Word travels from year to year how much fun the hypnotist show is and they want to make sure Project Grad will include your show.   Anyway....Thank you again from all of us for a wonderful program."
