Youre getting sleeeeepy, and you cant move from the chair youre sitting in. You hear fingers snap, and suddenly some dude in a P. Diddy-esque shiny suit is playing you like a deck of cards. Were not talking about your dickhead boss at the Christmas party; were referring to the unique talent known as Mike Mesmer Eyes. Hes known as the worlds most powerful hypnotist, and after 20 years of putting suckas to sleep with just words and maybe a firm handshake, hes coming to the Miami Improv to place you under his spell. He has the power to leave you completely unaware that youre lying on the floor, grinning like a fool, or cuddling up with a stranger. He sells out shows in Las Vegas, and if he can amaze the seen-it-all crowds out there, he must be the truth. The show begins at 8:30, and for just 15 bucks, you can choose to become MesmerEyes-ed or simply sit back and watch. Whatever you do, dont forget the two-drink minimum. Purchase tickets at the box office or at www.miamiimprov.com.
