Add hypnosis to your schedule the next 3 nights

One of my most favorite shows at the Fair is Jerry Harris’s hypnosis show. He is on stage for two shows every night and every show is different because of the brave folks who join him.

Personally, I could never volunteer to get up on stage, be hypnotized, and provide entertainment to all the fraidy cats in the audience.  But as a fraidy cat, I am so grateful there are bold and courageous people out there. Thank you brave people!

Jerry is quick and clear to point out that there is nothing scary or mystical or dangerous about hypnosis. You can’t get stuck in a hypnotic state and your values and morals always stay present. So even on stage you won’t do something against your beliefs.  That being said, you just might be shocked to learn afterwards that you were certain you were a runway model, a hula dancer, or Usher.

Jerry often mentions that the Clark County Fair is his favorite fair to perform at.  He does over 300 shows per year all over the country. Curious, I found him between shows and asked him what makes our Fair so special.

In addition to being relatively close to home (Jerry lives near Puyallup), Jerry really appreciates being scheduled for evening shows under a covered tent.

“It’s a good environment and a better time of day for people to relax and enjoy the show.”

But most of all, Jerry loves the people here.

“People at the Clark County Fair want to participate.  They want to be in my show.  They are open to the idea of hypnosis, which makes my job easier and even more fun.  I am not the star of the show, the people on stage are.  Without them, I don’t have a show.  The people here are great.”

You can find Jerry on the Columbian Community Stage underneath the big Sling Shot ride.  His shows are at 8:00pm and 10:00pm the rest of the Fair.

I am a Clark County Fair Fanatic and eat all things fried during the glorious 10 days of The Fair. I have lived in Clark County since 2004 and consider it the second-best decision of my life. I am married to a great guy named Rob (first-best decision) who graciously carries my stuff and takes my picture every time I eat something at The Fair. We have two indoor cats and lots of deer, rabbits, and coyotes who are kind enough to stay outside.
