Richard chooses to focus most of his efforts on comedy hypnosis performances because he feels it’s a marvelous introduction into the world of hypnosis. “I give the people a compelling, fascinating and entertaining entry into hypnosis and after that, they become curious as to what the mind can actually do.” Although he is a comedy stage hypnotist, Richard Barker constantly re-frames the entertainment aspect of hypnosis back to the hypothetical question, What if hypnosis could help you with a health-related issue?
