    Yeah, I'm not entirely comfortably with hypnosis as entertainment. Even with the most benign interpretation of what it entails, it is still exploiting (probably impressionable) people in the name of entertainment.

    Never been hypnotised though.
    I knew what the joke was going to be before I even reached the punch line, but I still almost coughed up milk all over my keyboard :D

    (yes I drink milk at work)

    I was once hypnotized and when I was under they told me all this hypnosis stuff doesn't really work.
    So I remain a skeptic.

    I have always thought it's a bit of a placebo effect. If you believe you can be hypnotized you probably can be.

    This isn't possible

    Derren Brown gave quite a good explanation of it all in one of his books - its like a lot of people have already said, depends on people's ease of influence/ability to disregard inhibitions etc.
