Role Reversal for Michael Johns

Mar 26th, 2007 | Category: In the Press

Empire Ballroom comic hypnotist Michael Johns, who fronts “Hypnosis Gone Wild” nightly at 11, was in the audience Saturday night at “O” at the Bellagio and found himself in a bit of role reversal. As the show opened, the dancing clown character (insert your own Bush Administration joke here) pulled Johns on stage and coerced him into dancing for the audience.

“It wouldn’t have been so bad if it had been a showgirl,” said Johns, whose show is built on such audience participation.
