Comedy Hypnotist St. Patrick’s Themed Show

Gary Conrad’s St. Patrick’s Show has skits designed to jump-start the “Irish” in all of us, whether through heritage or choice!

Volunteers will come on stage, enter hypnosis, and then engage in many seasonal bits such as:

– Riverdance
– hot potatoes
– kissing the Blarney Stone
– hiding leprechauns gold
– Notre Dame football
– “meeting” Machine Gun Kelly
– “Talking” to St. Patrick himself
– an Irish fishing trip
and more!

These bits are designed to infuse the St. Paddy’s Day spirit in both viewer and participant alike. Expect Irish music, props, costumes, and of course laughs, all topped off with a “Paddy’s Day” Chippendale style dance!

Hilarious and high-energy comedy hypnotism show that’ll get you in the St. Paddy’s Day spirit!

Benefiting SPCA
Continued this year! During all scheduled performances, a percentage of food and drink sales will benefit SPCA of Winchester, Frederick, and Clarke Counties.

Celtic Games for Children and Irish Dancers
SPCA will host Celtic activities for children on the Old Courthouse lawn. The Celtic activities will provide a fun atmosphere for lads and lassies ages 3-12. Also, on the Courthouse lawn will be several Irish Dance Troupes performing throughout the day.

Other Fun Activities

A balloon artist, dancers, vendors, and bagpipers will be on the Loudoun Street Mall and in Old Town shops and restaurants throughout the day. There will also be alpacas on the Old Courthouse lawn.
