It’s not often that you see an adult violating a chair – let alone four adults simultaneously. However, if you were at Tony Lee’s show, this was one of the many things you saw.
Approximately 150 students gathered after-hours on Oct. 26 as Lee, an XXX hypnotist, took to the stage in the Sanctuary. An 18 plus show, Lee’s combination of hypnotism, comedy and sexuality had students on the edge of their seats.
While the majority laughed, some watched sheepishly as a mild-mannered yet crude Lee began his act. Encouraging volunteers to come forward, what began as a mild performance quickly changed as Lee’s menacing voice prompted volunteers to engage in a series of comedic yet humiliating acts.
The crowd watched in astonishment as those on stage, dazed and in a sleep-like state, complied with Lee’s instructions. Between driving imaginary cars and simulating sexual activity, nothing was off limits.
“The general public, even though they may not acknowledge it, this is what they want to see,” explained Lee, referring to his sexually-infused act.
Performing at Conestoga College for more than five years, Lee continues to attract both show veterans and first-timers alike.
“We’re ready for something fun. With mid-terms, we need some stress relief,” said first-time viewer Kaitlin Jackmin.
Lee said he was first exposed to hypnotism after unintentionally hypnotizing his girlfriend at the time. After this experience, Lee developed a strong interest in hypnotism and decided to launch a show. What was intended to only be a three-year gig turned into a permanent stint taking him around the country.
Performing for 26 years, Lee has no plans of stopping anytime soon.
“You’re as young or old as the women you date,” joked Lee regarding his age.
Although he has plans of launching a theatre tour in Aruba, Lee, a reoccurring  recipient of the Canadian Campus Awards entertainer of the year award, also plans on continuing to tour campuses in the future.
