Hypnotist holds campus spellbound

Hypnotist Tom DeLuca gives new meaning to the phrase “captive audience” at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 24 in California State University, Sacramento’s University Union Ballroom.

Photo: Tom DeLucaFor twenty years, DeLuca has held students at CSUS and universities across the country under his hypnotic control. DeLuca, a former clinical hypnotist, mixes humor, improvisation, thought projection and audience participation in his award-winning show.

Under his hypnotic guidance, DeLuca prompts audience volunteers to behave like cartoon characters, imitate aliens and regress to the age of five to sing television theme songs from their childhoods, among other stunts.

DeLuca has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, as well as People and Rolling Stone. He has been ranked in Newsweek’s top-ten college variety acts and been voted “Campus Entertainer of the Year” several times by the National Association for Campus Activities.

Tickets are $10 general admission and $7 for students. Tickets are available at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 and at For media assistance, contact CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
