- C.J. Presents an Amazing Show
The number one way C.J.'s show is described is as "Amazing"! It's a complete theatrical experience as it includes the drama of the induction, comedy from the routines, music, dancing, surprise and mystery. It's a show that your students will talk about for years to come.
- C.J. Has Strong Ethics & Principles
Ethics and Principles are core to C.J.'s presentations. He treats everyone on stage with him with respect and takes care of his guests (your guests) better than anyone in the business. His core belief/principle about Hypnosis is that the show is all about the guests on stage and they are always made to be the focus of the laughs and the applause. Laughs never happen at the expense of a guests dignity.
C.J. views his job as "empowering people to be superstars, not making them look foolish."
- C.J. is Personable & Fun
Before during and after the show C.J. is one of the friendliest, most accessible acts in the college market.
- C.J. Works Clean
C.J.'s show is hilariously funny, but always remains family friendly and clean. It's why so many religious schools bring C.J. to campus. It doesn't have to offend to be hilarious!
- C.J. Has Unmatched Experience
C.J. has the experience and confidence that only thousands of shows can give. No matter what situation may arise, when you've done as many shows as he has, it's familiar territory. In the book "Outliers", Malcolm Gladwell says it takes 10,000 hours to become a master. Very few performers can, by this standard, be called masters, but C.J. truly can be. He's put in the time in front of live audiences so his show is second nature, he's encounter just about every situation, and he knows how to handle them.
Why would you trust your students to anything less than this level of mastery?
- C.J. Does What He Says
Growing up the number one lesson repeated to him by his mother was "A man is only as good as his word". This core value runs through everything that C.J. does. If he says he'll be there... he will. If he says he'll do it... he will. You won't get broken promises, cancelled shows or unfulfilled promises from C.J. If he says he'll do it... it will be done.
- C.J. Helps You Promote Your Event
15 years ago, when C.J. first got into the college market, he learned right away that it wasn't enough for a school to hire great entertainment, they had to let people know that the entertainer was on campus. No act in the college market makes this easier for you than Comedy Hypnotist C.J. Johnson. In fact, it's likely that you'll say "this is the best promo kit we've ever gotten".
C.J. even wrote, with business partner Brian Brushwood, the book "Pack The House" which is all about getting people to attend your college events. You'll get a free copy of this book when you book a show and C.J. even has a lecture available for your board and other campus organizations and it's available at a discount when he's on campus for your show.
This great promo kit is just one more reason that colleges bring C.J. back to campus year after year after year.
- C.J.'s Agent is Friendly & Wonderful
C.J. is represented in the college market by Carol Studer at "Everything But the Mime". The agency has been awarded "Agency of the Year" by APCA a record 6 times.
The agency's mission statement is ". . . to represent genuinely nice people who offer high quality entertainment at affordable prices." They're doing a great job as everyone on the EBM roster is not only a top notch performer, but someone who is genuinely nice.
C.J. is proud to be a part of this family of entertainers.
- C.J. is Adaptable to Most Environments
The experience of thousands of shows means that C.J. has probably worked a similar event and a similar venue over the years and can adapt to most situations. His technical demands are simple. He's got to be seen and heard and most of all, the people on stage have to have ample room to perform and be safe. Other than that, C.J. can make most environments work for a show.
- C.J. is Easy to Work With
You have enough to worry about at an event, C.J. will clearly spell out his technical needs (and even provide pictures to help the non-technical) in the contract rider.
At the show, C.J. will stealthy run his own music cues through hidden remotes - meaning you only need to provide an input for the laptop he's controlling, set a level, then sit back and enjoy the show!
C.J. will also need a high quality, wireless microphone. Don't have one? No problem, let C.J. know and he'll bring his own.
You'll never come across an easier to work with act than Comedy Hypnotist C.J. Johnson.
- C.J. is Low Maintenance
Everything about the way C.J. runs his show and his business is designed to make YOUR life easier the day of the event so you can enjoy the show too.
- C.J. has Very Competitive Pricing
While C.J. is certainly not the "cheapest" hypnotist in the college market he's a long way from the most expensive too.
Few hypnotists in the college market, for that matter, few hypnotists PERIOD, have the experience, awards, television and other credentials that C.J. Johnson has and yet his pricing for college events is surprisingly competitive.
