The Power of One (TV series) Wikipedia
The acts included in the show usually aim for amusement rather than showing off the hypnotist's skill or convincing the viewers that a person can only be forced to perform the act through hypnosis
Examples include:hypnotising a man to think he is driving an expensive car, when the truth is that they are driving a cheap one, or even a bumper car at a fair. sometimes he also makes them trash the car, with hilarious results
exploiting a personal weakness, such as arachnophobia or shyness
sexually centered acts, such as convincing a man that each of the holes in a pool table is a woman that he has to satisfy, or telling people to "become a lapdancer" or "make love" to whichever object they are closest to when he blows in a whistle
making a person do something embarrassing, or, for example, achieve instant orgasm, whenever something he's defined beforehand happens, like the subject hearing music, while being fully aware of what they're doing, but unable to affect it.
He also claims to be able to give people electric shocks or render himself invisible, through use of hypnotism or not.
Also previously aired on The Comedy Channel on Australian subscription television service Foxtel.
