Comedian and hypnotist Flip Orley
has problems finding audience volunteers to help him out onstage. "There's a lot of concern and fear," he says. "You need to build some credibility with them." As well as trust. Which is why Orley won't make participants "bark like a dog, squeal like a pig, or take their clothes off." He will, however, make them talk like backwoods hillbillies. "People will give that a shot," he says.
