Comedy Night returns to The Back Bowl in Eagle tonight with Rusty Z, a comedy hypnotist from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Rusty Z combines stand up comedy with hypnosis to create an engaging show.

“It’s a tongue-in-cheek, retro, rat pack show,” Rusty Z said. “I tell a few jokes and I get a bunch of people on stage, they get hypnotized and I have them do stuff.”Volunteers will be asked to take part in the show. Once guests are hypnotized, Rusty will incorporate his 15 years as a stand-up comedian to direct the volunteers in completing funny scenarios and tasks.

“No one will do anything against their ethics and I’ve never had anyone say I wish I’d never done that. (People) may forget their names, or think their name is something different. Brawny guys might become delicate fairy princess ballet dancers and some people may speak foreign languages they’ve never heard – a language no one has ever head, like martian.”

Basically, the audience participants become the stars of the show, Rusty Z said.The hypnosis is safe and volunteers will never do anything they wouldn’t normally do in their subconscious. Each show is unique and unexpected. This show is guaranteed to be clean – no profanity and of course, no nudity.”The show is something very different that the audience can particpate in. People are apprehensive at first, but I get so many repeat bookings, it can’t be bad,” Rusty Z said.The Back Bowl is a bowling and entertainment center located in Eagle. The lounge transforms into a comedy club for an intimate evening with some of the top comedians in Colorado the first Thursday of every month.
