Hypnotist and magician loves to interact with the crowd
- EFN Staff | May 21, 2019
A Métis entertainer from Prince Albert fell in love with the art of magic and has built a business based on what he loves doing. Magician and hypnotist Roger Boucher have been practicing his form of art and entertainment for years. He got his start as a performing hypnotist four years ago and has been practicing magic for 17 years now. He has proven time and again that he is the entertainer to book. From the moment he steps into the spotlight until the conclusion of his show, he has his audience captivated and completely involved.
“I got into magic through a friend named Josh. He got me interested in it,” he said. “I never really learned anything until I got into university. I learned that I could learn from books…I started practicing and the rest is history. I continued to build on it.”
Years later, he met up with this friend Josh where he introduced him into hypnosis. He took a hypnotherapy course in 2015 and added hypnosis to his entertainment ever since.
He performs all across Canada where he gets his audience completely involved – something that he loves about his career.
“My show is about the interaction with the crowd,” Boucher said. “Magic wise, I like to get the crowd involved. Even with hypnosis, it’s all about how the audience engages with me. I do stuff with cards, mind reading stuff, fun routines like a voodoo doll routine which is pretty interesting, as well as a haunted house routine which is fun and entertaining.”
“I like the stuff that I do, it’s more about the audience engagement than anything else,” he said. “[Some comments] I got were I had the in the palm of my hand and that people’s faces hurt from laughing so hard.”
Boucher Entertainment has a variety of entertainment offerings to choose from including duo and solo magic performances, strolling magic which are perfect for weddings, banquets and fairs, improv and interactive theatre performances. Boucher also performs in the French language to accommodate a larger audience.
Boucher has many shows coming up. People who are interested in more information on Boucher’s magic and hypnosis, you can go to boucherentertainment.com or find him on social media.
