When: Monday, Jan. 17 & Monday, Jan. 24
Calgary-based hypnotist/entertainer Sailesh is back again for a pair of shows at Merlins. And hell be looking for volunteers to succumb to his waking sleep techniques.
Those who answer the call might be convinced of any number of scenarios. Saileshs bag of tricks has had people turn into enraged white trash a la Jerry Springer, or convinced their chair is the worlds greatest lover.
Its uncensored, uninhibited and unbelievable.
Dont take the "uncensored" thing lightly. Its guaranteed to get raunchy, although Sailesh insists there are lines he wont cross convincing a woman to get naked, for example. Even though hes able to speak to the subconscious, everyones mind has a system of checks that wont allow it to override moral beliefs, he ascertains.
That being said, Saileshs shows are no Sunday school class especially here in Whistler. Wild young locals and vacationers with nothing to lose make for some of his most notorious and hilarious gigs, he has said. This from a man whos on the road 11 months of the year.
See for yourself on Monday at Merlins. If you miss that one, never fear. Sailesh is sticking around for another show at Merlins on Monday, Jan. 24.
