This was not only was that the best Hypnosis Stage Show I’ve ever seen, it was by far the best show I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been in the business for more than 30 years!
Ron – Event Planner, NJ
Dear John: I was amazed at your ability to capture the attention of your audience. You are truly the “Trance-Master!” As a AAEH (The Association to Advance Ethical Hypnosis) Past President and Certified Hypnotist, with many years of experience, I can truly say that I have never seen such thrilling and energetic stage hypnosis as you have performed it. You are truly gifted and talented. Jack Heller
Thank you for most truly awesome hypnosis show I have ever seen! I’ve seen and hired other hypnotists before, but I have never seen anyone hypnotize as fast as you do both individual and group, and the show was itself nonstop powerful entertainment. We will be seeing each other again very soon, count on it!
Corporate Event Planner – CT – 2015
Mr. Cerbone was very easy to work with during the planning stages of the event. He was quick to reply to each phone call and email. He performed an amazing show which captivated the audience the entire time. His talents are amazing!!! – Dr. Natalie C. Monmouth University
Hey John! First off… I just want to say WOW. I was so impressed with the amount of energy and humor that your hypnotist show brought to The College of New Jersey’s Relay for Life event this year! Even at 3am, the performance was so entertaining that everyone dropped what they were doing to gather around the stage and watch. I received such great feedback, and it was one of the biggest highlights of the night.
On behalf of Colleges Against Cancer, thank you so much for helping make our 9th annual Relay for Life the best yet, and joining us in our fight for a cancer-free future!!
We hope to see you again next year!
Best regards,
Cara E – Co-VP of Colleges Against Cancer
Hello John, It was pleasure working with you and meeting you yesterday. The gym of 1,500 first year students at Baruch College enjoyed you! Thank you again!
Very Best Regards, Dinetta S., M.S.- Assistant Director of Student Activities, Student Life
John was a pleasure to work with. He responded immediately and was very flexible regarding our particular circumstances. We hired him for a private club event at our university. His show was entertaining – the volunteers onstage were very susceptible to his hypnosis for the entire duration of the show, and some ordinarily shy people were very “out there” with their performances. I would definitely recommend John to anyone looking for a fun performance, something different than usual, at this kind of event. Dan – Princeton University 2015
Thank you for your entertaining program at our school on February 11, 2011. We had a terrific turn out and our audience had a great time. It was more than 90 minutes of non-stop laughter.
Thanks again.
Steve. W. – Senior Class Advisor, HGHS
Thank you again for your amazing performance and wonderful appearance on our campus! We really enjoyed the show!!! Thank you, Julia M. C. – Council for Greek Governance – President 2013-2014 – Gamma Lambda Rho Sorority Iona College Class of 2014

 “This was our second time working with the Trance-Master and his show has never been better.  Our members were so thrilled with the program and it really set a positive tone for the rest of our weekend.  I highly recommend the Trance-Master as he not only puts on a quality show but he is a wonderful and professional talent to work with” 
Josh Cohen. Program Director – Connecticut Valley Region BBYO
Hi John,
I wanted to thank you again for another truly great performance!!!  It’s always nice to catch up when we see each other and I’m sorry I didn’t have as much time to hang out.  As you can imagine with 400 teens running around my attention is always in demand. The kids are still absolutely raving about your show, it’s been non-stop!
Thanks again and I look forward to doing this again in the future!

You can count on us to recommend you to other Associations. Again, thank you for your unforgettable show.
Sincerely, Mary Ann W.  – Executive Vice President –  The Ocean County Board of Realtors
“John, you ARE family. And let me tell you something else; when we go to have this weekend event here, the first question every kid asks is, ‘Is the hypnotist going to be there? If he’s not, I am not coming.’ ” You were great. The kids loved it.  What would we do without you?  You made our shabbatone that much better. The kids are already talking about the next time you will come. thanks again! Rabbi Moshe Z., Ezra Academy, Queens, NY
Thanks John.   People really enjoyed your show.  Great job!
 Karla M. Human Resources Director – Transamerica Life Insurance 
John is truly a professional. He came to our clubhouse early to insure that everything was in place. He really is the Trance-Master! He had everyone under his control very quickly and his show was entertaining and hilarious! I would definitely recommend John to all who are looking for the best Hypnotist-Comedian out there. — Hey John: When I was at the clubhouse this morning everyone was still talking about the show. We enjoyed having you and I will certainly recommend you to my friends and other club heads. When I have the video made I will forward you a copy. Thanks for a great show and hopefully we will soon meet again.  Best Regards,
Guy (Senior Community Show)
We loved the show  I was talking about you all day today    some day we’ll have to hang out  in the city for dinner. My friends would really enjoy your entire act   from Rodney to the trance-master! I’ll be in touch   You really had Casey under a deep hypnotic state. It was unbelievable to see her standing with her feet glued to the floor. She doesn’t remember anything.
You’re the best.  Your new friend  Sal C
Have a great Christmas and New Year 
John’s show was amazing! He got all the kids under fast and everyone had a great time!
Rabbi Cohen – The Friendship Circle
John: I am glad to hear your return to NY was uneventful, and that this email finds you safely back home. Our friends and family enjoyed meeting you so much. You absolutely made my daughter’s celebration a huge success!!  
From the moment you came on stage, our guests, ages 7-75 were mesmerized by your charm, your humor, and your amazing skill! With such humor and great energy, we watched you effortlessly hypnotize our guests. Our daughter and her friends were up for hours afterward laughing and reviewing all the skits in your show and comparing experiences; what it was like to be hypnotized to what it was like to be in the audience watching their friends. You helped to create memories for our family we will cherish for years to come.
We definitely will tell our friends about you and your show and would recommend you to everyone! We look forward to seeing you again at future events.
Take care, Michael and Hannah J.
*********************************************************************From my first interaction with John, even before we selected him, he was engaging, professional, and earnestly wanted to ensure that his show would meet all of our needs and expectations, including making sure that it was age appropriate and culturally sensitive. Having never seen John perform before it was somewhat of a roll of the dice, but he met and exceeded our expectations. His show is lively and energetic. He kept a room full of pretty sophisticated 13 year old “know-it-alls” engaged, entertained and clamoring for more. We would recommend him without reservation. Matthew G – Bar/Bat Mitzvah Show
John Cerbone is really extraordinary – he turned a great B day party into a overtop experience for everyone who attended. I Recommend John for all occasions he will surely make it a memory that will last forever . Sam K
John: Your show was amazing I really enjoyed every moment of it. I liked the fact that you were able to get everyone involved and then entertain everyone! With the hypnotized kids and adults. You are obviously really good since you were able to get the people hypnotized regardless to all the noise in the background.
I have been to a couple of hypnotist shows and yours was the best I have seen by far!
I must say you had me laughing so hard from beginning to end.
Chana – Chabad
John, Great job at Melanie’s bridal shower. The guests loved the entertainment.
The hypnosis was really soooooo relaxing and lots of fun. Felice V, Long Island, NY
Dear John,  We, at Rosemont Estates thank you for the great performance that you gave us last evening.  I never realized how much we delighted at making fun of our friends.  They were wonderful sports and you were extremely sensitive to them.  Everyone had a fun filled time and laughed and laughed.  You are an wonderful entertainer, very professional, quick and intelligent.  This was just not hypnosis but a night to remember.  Thank you again and I hope to see you soon. 
Elaine S/, Social Director.
Hi John, Thank you for a wonderfully entertaining night! I, for one, was laughing the entire time and I know that people really enjoyed themselves. We will be in touch soon to book you again!
All the best,
Suzanne M., President of Shalhevet at NYU
Roch D. Preite: is happy the Comedy Hypnosis Show went well. Seemed like everyone had a good time and the After-Show, Show might have actually been more fun than the show itself. Thank You John Cerbone! Looking forward to having you back again!
John: We had a great time and are looking forward to having you come back.  It was amazing to work with you.  The Trance- Master, John Cerbone is an awesome hypnotist who’s a true professional with a really fun and professional attitude towards hypnosis.
Feliks L. – Cooper Union College
Dear John,
Thanks for making the first weekend of the Spring semester an outstanding success!  You had the audience in stitches, and as for your hypnotized performers…a month later, and they still break into huge grins at the sight of your red pen.  Can’t wait till your next performance!
Sincerely yours, Gabe S.–Hillel at NYU
“John Cerbone is an amazing hypnotist and a wonderful hypnosis trainer. Whilst many others of the top names in hypnosis simply re-teach tired old methods John is a hypnotic innovator whose spectacular work in the area of instant inductions and ‘speed trance’ and other areas of hypnosis keep our field moving forward. John’s energy and passion for hypnosis is inspiring and he truly one of the greatest names in today’s hypnosis profession and a hypnotist who I genuinely admire”
Nathan Thomas

Hi John,
Your show was fabulous! The kids and teachers had a great time at the show.  You are wonderful to work with because you know what to do, and what not do, with a high school age audience.  On Thursday night, the audience laughed hysterically.  These are the kind of memories we want to make for our students.  You are truly the Trance Master!   
Lina – Principal – Paramus High School
Hello Mr. Cerbone. It’s Kohei from Paramus High School. First off, I want to thank you for performing at our school. It was very funny and the students enjoyed it. Hopefully we can do another one next year. Thank you -Kohei
Thanks John. Your show was a huge success! Everybody is talking about it in school and clips are all over Facebook. They all had a blast. Everybody is begging me to have you back again later this year. I have to say it was amazing how deeply and completely you had so many kids hypnotized for so long. They were outrageously funny, and I haven’t heard about any regrets or humiliation. None of the earlier skeptics have much to say anymore either. In fact, quiet the opposite. Everybody wants to get on stage. The shoe skit… I had tears in my eyes. Thanks for all your energy and a fantastic event that exceeded all of our expectations.
John N – Paramus High School Science Teacher and Senior Class Advisor
Thank you so much for coming to Jonesboro, Arkansas to share your skills with our community and students.  You and Catherine provided a wonderfully entertaining show that we laughed and talked about for several days following.  I know that you are very busy and I appreciate your willingness to support your student and friend and allow us to be the benefactors.  The show was wonderful and enjoyed by everyone who attended. 
I hope that you have an enjoyable holiday season.
 Kindest regards,
 Gail H – Arkansas State University

*********************************************************************Thanks again for a great show. Best, Cam – Princeton University
The Trance-Master gave us a great show and it definitely should happen again next year. He was very cool and engaged the crowd doing anything we really wanted. Molly, Will, and Rob were really tripping out which makes me think it was legit. I’m still recovering from the intensity! Bryan – Princeton University
Thank you. The kids really enjoyed the show.
Alex B. – Relay for Life, The Beacon School, NYC
It was great having you with us!  The buzz after the show and the day after was very enthusiastic.  Everyone I spoke to loved it and had a great time.  Bravo!

All the best, Rabbi Meir – Hillel@ Hofstra University

Have a great day! Mindee – Jewish Student Life Coordinator – Hillel@ Hofstra University
Hi John… Thank you, thank you, thank you for a really amazing time yesterday. Zanyor, Brian and I had a ball. Listening back to the tape and watching the video (which by the way is up on our website at under the Brian & Jen section), I feel like we really got into it. Although I think Zanyor was funny and I was just stupid with some of my responses—I mean a southern construction worker? What was I thinking? Ha Ha…We really had a great time. Next time, we need to get Brian. You were so kind and it really made for great radio. Hope we can do it again. It was awesome!!
Jen Ursillo – On Air Talent -“Brian and Jen” – G–Rock Mornings” 5-10am

Your Agency Inc.  provided St. Andrews School in Middletown, DE with The Trance-Master, John Cerbone – comedic hypnotist on Saturday   The students enjoyed this engaging and captivating performance some being hypnotized and others observing the funny things the students did while in a hypnotic trance.  Everyone had a great time and the event provided the students with much to talk about and great memories to share.

Your show was hilarious! You hypnotized the group quickly and then the fun ensued. It was great and I would hire you again in a heart beat. We had a great time and other groups have come up to me saying that they will not be able to top this performance with their own programming.

Neha – Rutgers University
Dear John, Originally when my wife asked me to look for a hypnotist for my son Jack’s 8th grade graduation / birthday party….I thought that she was losing her mind. Then thru creative research I found you and honestly when I heard what you charged….I was convinced that she lost her mind. With all the above being said….and after experiencing your show……I am still after almost a week…..totally impressed not with just your show…but with you! You have become the talk of our town and most importantly….our family. Your energy and passion coupled with keeping everything “G” rated made the night my son will remember for the rest of his life…..and for that…..I can only thank you! All the best and I can hardly wait to book you again. Sincerely, Kevin K.- Sparta, NJ PS. Your Rodney Dangerfield impersonation is amazing!
Thanks John…..Yes, you were the talk of the weekend!   Everyone was truly amazed!  It was great entertainment for my daughter’s Graduation Party and we loved every minute of it…..We didn’t want it to end.  I was told by many that it was the “best party” they have ever gone to … and I give you full credit for that!   Yes, my brother Bob said he wants to have you entertain at his school… My husband also mentioned hiring  you for a corporate function. Thanks again for everything.  You’re the BEST!  Judy L

John, When we were planning our holiday party, I wanted to do something different for my teenage employees that would be memorable and fun.  Your show exceeded my expectations and created plenty of memorable moments for all.  My staff was talking about different moments during the show long after the show was over.  I can’t thank you enough for your professionalism and passion.  In a word, your show was…Unbelieva-Bill! Thanks, Bill Dubiel, President – Unbelieva-Bills
Hey John, I actually just saw your show Sunday night at the Unbelieva-Bills staff party.  I thought you were great, and I think that your show would be a hit at my high school.  I am the Vice President of the Student Council at X High School and the day after I saw your show I went right to the director of Student Council and she also thought it would be a great idea.  I was wondering how much it would cost to have you come to our school as a fundraiser or how it even works rather.  I’d really appreciate if you could get back to me as soon as possible, we’re all very eager to have you visit our school.  Thank you very much and keep up the good work! -Sarah
John – You better believe that I enjoyed your hilarious Hypnosis show!!! Let me know when you are performing in the area so I can enjoy some more! Best regards,

Barie & Tracy S – Student Movement Against Cancer
John, I want to thank you for the phenomenal show you put on at my daughters college during their fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The kids are still talking about it weeks later. To see 20+ kids all lined up in chairs, all in a trance is a sight to behold. While there was nothing you had these kids do that was distasteful, it was hilarious; and just watching you perform was a show in itself. Who would think that this many people could really be put in a hypnotic trance at the same time? This is probably the 5th or 6th time I have seen you perform, and like fine wine, you get better with age. Thanks again. You can count on my recommendation whenever possible. Jon S.
“Working with John Cerbone was a terrific experience from start to finish.  He is as professional as he is enthusiastic.  He worked fabulously with the crowd throughout the show, and created an exciting and entertaining atmosphere. 
I would recommend John to anyone looking to thrill and captivate their audience. 
Mo Narang, Comedy Chair, Georgetown Program Board – Georgetown University
Thank you so much for your amazing performance at Georgetown University.  Your show was a great kick-off to the school year; we have never had a hypnotist who was so engaging and entertaining, yet educational at the same time!  I look forward to working with you year after year!  
Kristan C, Advisor to the Georgetown Program Board – Georgetown University
‘On behalf of the Brooklyn Cyclones Baseball Club, I would like to personally thank you for putting on a wonderful post game hypnosis show. We all enjoyed your show very much and will keep you on file for any possible dates for the 2006 season. From an event organization perspective you were very thorough and the show ran with ease. This is especially important when planning an event in front of 8,000+ fans and doing in-between inning stints. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to the next.’

*********************************************************************Thank you so much John! Your show was a hit. The audience had a blast. Quite a few of them came up to me after the show and in the following days and told me how much fun they had. One of the guys said that he had not laughed that much in a long time. It was an unconventional and innovative way for the Islander Cultural Alliance to recruit. We just had our weekly meeting and we had an increase in member attendance as well as new members.
I can’t thank you enough John!
Bobby Garcia ~ V.P. of Islander Cultural Alliance – Texas A & M University – Corpus Christi, TX
John: I attended your show on here at TAMU-CC.  I have never been hypnotized before so I wanted to see if it was “real.”  Well it was! It took a great deal of concentration and the ability to let your body be free.  After the session I guess you would call it I was very relaxed but not tired.  I am a testament that being hypnotized can be a real thing if you just let your body free. If you have any more questions please let me know. Did you have a good time? Yes! Did your friends in the audience have a good time? Boy did they and they’re still having a great time reminding me of everything! Did you feel great after being Hypnotized? I felt very relaxed & wonderful!

Thank you so much for a wonderful night. The members are still talking about your performance well into the weekend games.  Those that missed the meeting are upset and demanding we re-book you.  I would have written sooner, but it is hard to type when you are laughing.  If anyone is considering booking you for their event, please pass on my recommendation.  Outstanding performance!  Truly a night to remember!  Thanks again, I am sure we will be seeing each other again. Tommy M – Philadelphia Central Board of Officials
I’m on my way back to the West Coast, calling from Newark Liberty Airport. I just wanted to thank you so much for your wonderful performance for our group! Everyone enjoyed it and you were a tremendous help to me. And honestly, if I can ever do anything for you, all you have to do is ask. I think you are a terrific performer. I just cannot thank you enough! Sincerely, you were a hit and we all appreciate the entertainment that you provided for us and for our guests. Thank you again – and many times over – for not only being a great performer but also for being so accommodating to work with.  I am most willing to be added as one of your testimonials!
Regards, Anne- Veterinary Information Network – Davis, CA
John: We can’t thank you enough for your incredible program! Everyone was thrilled with your performance!
We greatly appreciated all the time you took to insure it was the very best possible. Everyone will be talking about your show for a long time. Don’t hesitate to call if you ever need a referral. Thank you, You were terrific!
Sincerely, Jeff and Dawn – AFLAC – NY
John: Thank you very much for an awesome show.  People are still talking about it now.  I’m definitely remembering things, but not everything.  I can’t wait to see the video.  You were awesome and superb to us and to everyone there.  We really appreciate it.  Again, thanks for everything.  It was a wonderful show, at least that’s what I’m being told.  Now I can say that I have been hypnotized and it worked.  Have a great day!!!!  We will be working again in the future!
Thanks, Stephanie – AFLAC – NY
Dear John: Thank you so much for the wonderful show that you provided our students last evening. The school is buzzing about the fun that our students have and some the thing that they did while Hypnotized. Our new Beauty Queen is getting a lot of ribbing but “he” is enjoying the fun. I also want to thank you for providing a taping of the show. This is a wonderful surprise for us and will allow me an opportunity to show the students who were Hypnotized what happened during their sleep. It is also valuable to me for my archives of activities on campus. I have no doubt that you and your stage show will be seriously considered in the future to come back to Reading Area Community College. One last thing I must say. I have dealt with numerous speakers and entertainers since I took this position in Student activities. You are by far the easiest entertainer to work with – your needs were simple and your demands few. Thank you! Sincerely, Sue – Student Activities Coordinator – Reading Area Community College
John, I just wanted to thank you SO much for the two shows that you performed for us these past few weeks! Aside from the fact that the kids had an amazing time, we truly were able to recognize the difference in quality and ability between you and other stage hypnotists. There was no comparison that your show was in a different ballpark completely as far as quality, entertainment and most importantly enjoyment than the other show!
            Your professionalism in caring about adhering to the strict rules and limitations of running a show for an orthodox group was greatly appreciated as I saw that it stemmed from a true care about each and every participant both of the show and the audience! Thank you so much for putting on one of the most entertaining things these 6th, 7th & 8th graders AND our staff of college-aged students have seen in their entire lives! I would recommend you again in a second without thinking twice! Thanks once again!
Jesse – Associate Director, Junior NCSY – New Jersey Etz Chaim NCSY
Thank you for helping to make our first event a huge success! The show was great, full of energy, and received very highly by the audience. This was a perfect show for both college and high school students. We appreciate you putting together such a wonderful performance on such short notice and also customizing the show for us. Whenever we need a hypnotist again, we will be happy to hire you!
Rachel, Ambassadors Club – Susquehanna University
Mr. John Cerbone, “The Trance Master” really lived up to his name and then some in the performance he gave to our young adults. The show was filled with energy, life, and flat out amazing stuff that kept everybody excited for a full hour and a half, yet it felt like 15 minutes!! We all didn’t want the show to end. John was so co-operative and easy to work with. He complied with all of our organizations religious policies no questions asked. I would recommend John for any corporate, school or social event for all ages. A true master in his field! Looking forward to working with him again. Rabbi Isaac T – Magen David – Young Adult Director – Brooklyn, N.Y.
Hello, John! We’d like to thank you for making our party really fun!  Being in your show, even though I didn’t see much, just remember just the beginning and the end, I was told that the hypnotized group, me included, was very amusing 🙂  So, thank you for hypnotizing us!  Many thanks from all of our party guests!!!!  Hope to see you again! Sincerely, Your Friend, Dana – Private Party, Livingston, NJ
John, I just wanted to let you know that I just got home and already have messages from some of the girls. They loved your show!  They are still laughing about it and I’m really happy with the success of the evening. You were a pleasure to work with. I will definitely be telling my friends about you.
thanks again. we’ll be in touch, Zeesy – The Friendship Circle
Dear John: We’re still recuperating from your amazing performance. It’s a week later and kids are still buzzing about it. You really made our weekend a success. Thanks so much for your great show. They loved the segment where they forgot their homework and had to come up with excuses for the teacher. Thanks, Honey – Young Magen David
Thanks for a really great Show!
Rabbi Yehoshua M – The Hebrew Academy of Five Towns & Rockaway
John was great! The kids at my son’s Bar Mitzvah had a ball, and are still trying to figure out exactly what happened. I’d definitely recommend him for any such occasions. Brent D
Thanks for a really great and powerful show John, at my son’s Bar Mitzvah.  You made the party really fun. We’ll be doing it again in 2009! Diana – Rockaway, NY
Hi John, The feedback was wonderful!! People were absolutely amazed. It was a great way to celebrate my husband’s birthday. I found it so interesting that most people felt they weren’t really ‘out’ or out briefly and  then just playing along… until they saw themselves on tape!!!! I am sure you will be getting calls and references from people who attended. One of my friends is a producer (in fact I think you hypnotized her separately at the end by the door). They have tons of contacts. So we will keep passing your name along and hopefully we’ll meet again!! Thanks again!! Lorie
Dear Mr. Cerbone: Thank you for your performances on April 24, 25, 26. Your really had the audience mesmerized!!! The audience members of our Seniors (citizens) who saw and enjoyed your show continued to talk about it long after it ended. We wish you endless success with all of your future engagements. Thanks so much!
Very Truly Yours, Pearl M – Executive Director – Theater Rehabilitation
Very funny silly show. Lot’s of fun and I laughed a ton!

John, Thank you for a wonderful show.   Your showmanship and professionalism were outstanding as you entertained our guests under the trying conditions of an outdoor pool party.  Our guests had a wonderful time. ~  Jay
Thanks for having us as your guests on Sat. eve…your show was outstanding…hope that we can get together soon and you can tell and explain some things to me about the show…you are an outstanding talent! Sincerely. ~ John
Thank you very much for your wonderful performance this past Sunday. We all enjoyed your show very much, and I am greatly looking forward to receiving the video so we can all get together and watch it for a second time. I have created a section in my notebook with all of your information so that next year’s Director of New Members can contact you. Thank you for assisting in creating the best “Bid Day” Delta Gamma Sorority at the University of Florida at has ever had! Vanessa – Delta Gamma Sorority at the University of Florida
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for a job well done. The members of Alpha Phi Delta Fraternity gained valuable leadership advice from our wonderful afternoon motivational program. Furthermore, many of the members enjoyed your delightfully funny Hypnosis Stage Show. The show was entertaining, and with your show routines tailored to Alpha Phi Delta, it was very easy for the members to relate to. I look forward to inviting you to our leadership and business meetings in the future. Thank you once again. I remain.
Executive Secretary – Alpha Phi Delta Fraternity
John was a wonderful act, a tremendous person with whom to work, and a great success. The students really liked him. I have had really great feedback. Furthermore, I was delighted to work with you privately to quit smoking the following day and . . . I have not smoked nor had the desire to smoke in anyway!!!! Thank you for helping me to live longer! Coordinator of Student Life & Programming – Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL 
Dear John Cerbone (Hypnotist): I was at one of your Hypnosis shows in Englishtown, New Jersey on April 2nd. I was just so amazed at how you hypnotized me and the others. I just want to thank you because people came over to me and actually talked to me and were like . . .”that was so cool,” how I was Hypnotized. And it was like a charge that people came over to me. I just wanted to say thank you now I have soo . . . . Many more friends. Maybe you didn’t really notice but you really do make a difference. You should know that you have such a cool job! It’s so amazing! I just wanted to ask you if you know of any Hypnosis books that might be interesting to read? Thanks again.
Your Friend, Reena R.– PS-Please write me back! By the way, I am 11 years old!
Hey John, We met at the convention this weekend, it’s Matt. We are def. interested in your act at the college and will forward your flyer to our student activities department. But the reason for this email, was a great interest in the copy of the tape from the show at the convention. It was hysterical. You put on “the best damn show”. So E-mail me back with price info., and video tape pick up arrangements. Sincerely, Your Fan –Matt – Washington, DC
Hi John–It was a great show!  People that cancelled coming to my husband’s 40th Birthday Party are hearing all about it and regretting not being there.  I have not watched the video yet.  My whole family will get together this weekend to watch it.  We will be sending you a DVD of the show tomorrow. Thanks Again, Maureen- Putnam, CT
Dear John: On behalf of the entire membership of the Columcille Cultural Center, I would like to thank you for the extremely successful stage you conducted at the Staten Island Irish Fair. We witnessed a great entertainment event, as your performance was enjoyed by all. Please remember our organization for next year, as we would like to hire you again. Let me know what day is good for you and I’ll book the other entertainers around you. Sincerely Yours, Jack H – Chairman, Irish Fair
I am pleased to write this recommendation for John Cerbone. He was a hypnotist at four of our school functions, we were very pleased with his performance and with the student reaction. We hosted the Scotch Plains-Fanwood H.S. Student Movement Against Cancer held as an Up-All-Night-Event. John was one the headline activity during our event. We received very positive feedback from both students and parents. I would have no reservations of inviting him back for another performance. He was professional and interacted well with the students. His show was a great deal of fun for everyone and he was sensitive not to embarrass anyone that was under hypnosis. I would genuinely recommend him without reservation.
Sincerely, David L. H. – Principal of Scotch Plains-Fanwood H.S.
On behalf of the Staten Island Historical Society, we thank you for participating at our annual Richmond County Fair. Please know that your participation in our event enhanced our entertainment and the audience thoroughly enjoyed interacting with you. The fairgoers quickly came up onto the stage and became hypnotized easily. It was a fun time for all since you quickly captured the attention of all ages. We hope you can set aside the time to perform for us next year. We sincerely look forward to having you perform next year. Sincerely, Ellie G. – Director of Special Events- Richmondtown
It was a pleasure to meet you this morning. You were one of the best speakers we have ever had! I have already gotten three phone calls asking me, “How do I feel?” I feel wonderful and relaxed (after your Hypnosis Demo with me as the volunteer) and telling me what a great meeting it was! Thanks again for the wonderful presentation!
Leslie Gross, President – Great Neck Rotary Club
Thank you so much for speaking at our Rotary Club meeting on December 29, 2004. Your presentation was captivating! We really enjoyed hearing about the many ways hypnosis can benefit us and especially enjoyed watching you hypnotize our members. It was both informative and entertaining. On behalf of the Mid-Island Rotary Club, we greatly appreciate your time and effort. Sincerely, Marguerite A. F., President – Mid-Island Rotary Club
*********************************************************************The kids LOVED your session as evidenced by the word of mouth turnout for the third session. thank you soooo much, Forte B. – Bishop Ford High School Career Day
Thank you for the videotape of your hilarious Hypnosis show. We enjoyed it very much. Thanks for making our party a great success. We will surely recommend you to our friends. Thanks again and Happy New Year. – Susan
John, I am sorry I did not get back to you sooner; I was unavailable.  You were great and the membership absolutely loved your presentation.  My son and daughter were elated on how much fun they had at Italian Club meeting.  I plan on writing a testimonial for you on ICSI stationary.  Where should I send it and do you have any examples that can assist me in being your number 1 fan. Mario
Hi John, It was a great session – again, on behalf of NJCEIA, I thank you!  In my opinion, it was one of the most unusual, enjoyable and beneficial meetings we’ve had in the 18 years that I’ve been in Co-op. Today I met with our President, and she was still laughing heartily at the color RED; I now find it a very amusing color and continue to notice it. I will definitely recommend you to colleagues and other folks, and am glad to know that you are so accessible. Some of my family and friends may be interested in individual sessions.  Actually, my mom and I are very interested – especially in regression hypnosis.  You’ll be hearing from us.  In the meantime, best wishes for a wonderful holiday season! Best Regards, Sondra – NJCEIA
“We can’t thank John Cerbone – “the Trance Master” enough for the fabulous show he just put on for our members. Fun, energetic and engaging John had the entire audience on the edge of their seat!! The buzz among the members about the show has been great and they are already asking when he will be back again!!”
Hi John
I’ve seen a lot of funny shows in my time but your performance last night was the best!
Side splitting laughter!
Nothings funnier then laughing at ourselves!
My cheeks are still hurting from laughing.
Thanks for a great time!
