He takes my bare foot in his hand, closes his eyes, assumes a pious expression, takes a deep breath, and hums a meditative note. You had my mind all over the place!

Darcy Perdu shares her escapades, encounters, and blunders — and invites you to do the same!

The actual show itself when it eventually started tended to be quite short with very simple, innocuous routines forgetting your name, forgetting how to count etc with perhaps the only controversial part being suspending a subject between two chairs and then getting someone to stand on their stomach. Huge collective sigh of horror. Ken Webster who has been performing in Blackpool for nearly three decades is now also, for the most part, a no-nudity stage hypnotist. As he did, I removed all of my clothing and donned the costume. Ah, memories of which I have none except for the VHS tape purchased immediately after my disgrace.
