Farewell tour Andre The Hilarious Hypnotist
The Studio Theatre @ Montecasino
22 January – 23 February

Andre The Hilarious Hypnotist, one of South Africa’s funniest entertainers, is a firm favourite on the Johannesburg theatre scene each year in January as one of the best ways to chase away the New Year Blues.
2020 is no different as he has returned to The Studio Theatre at Montecasino from Wednesday 22 January – Sunday 23 February – but this time it’s as part of his FAREWELL TOUR.
After an unprecedented 28 years in the industry, this will be the last time Joburg audiences will be able to enjoy Andre in action as he presents his Andre The Hilarious Hypnotist Farewell Tour.
Andre will be hanging up his colourful coat as he leaves our shores to practice his hypnosis on other willing participants abroad.
Says Andre, “I want to thank the Joburg audiences who have supported me in a career; those who have volunteered on stage and those who sat and laughed out loud, each one a person without which I would never have had a career.”

He continues; “There aren’t many theatre performers can look back at a stage career spanning this length, but I have the privilege of doing just that. It has been a mixed bag of magic where some shows just flowed and others where it required a little more work to make it happen. No matter how you look at it, we made magic in Joburg and I hope that I can return one day and together we will make magic again. But for now, I plan to go out with a BANG!”
Andre combines his skills in comedy and hypnosis to create a 2-hour show of side splitting entertainment suitable for all ages.
Andre takes his volunteers on a hilarious hypnotic journey in which they imagine they are sprinklers, dinosaurs, washing machines, Superman and Mrs South Africa, with Michael Jackson and Christina Aguilera added for good measure.
This fast paced fun show features your neighbours, friends and family in a hilarious evening of entertainment in which you could be the star.
No two shows are ever the same as the show’s strength lies in the fact that every night’s volunteers are completely different, leading to a diverse hilarious action-packed evening performance.
With every person reacting differently to Andre’s suggestion, not even Andre knows what to expect when he steps up on stage. The strength of the show lies on the volunteers of the evening and that is what makes Andre’s show such a feel-good, funny, hilarious evening’s entertainment. It’s truly the only show in the country that can claim that it makes stars of your friends and family.
Tickets are R120 and bookings are now open at Computicket.
