Hypnotist Chris Gillies and psychic medium Roy Roberts brought their Two Senses of the Unknown show to the Astor Theatre in Deal

28 February 2014

A hint of hilarity and a touch of the occult were the premise when a stage hypnotist and a medium combined forces for the Two Senses of the Unknown show at the Astor Theatre.

Harley Street hypnotist Chris Gillies and London’s Top Clairvoyant Roy Roberts offered their audience a snapshot of their intriguing skills at Thursday’s stage show.

Whatever your opinion on the afterlife, Roy does get results.

He relayed names of people ‘in spirit’, dates of birth, scenarios and secrets.

Some reacted with open arms - others with dread when he announced their private thoughts to the 150-strong crowd.

“If they swear, I swear. If they say you’re having an affair, I’ll say it,” said life-long medium Roy before the show.

Of course there is always the doubting belief that personal data could easily be accessed online. For some that suspicion was voiced, but others said he was accurate in his statements as he weaved from group to group with messages from beyond the grave.

If the supernatural was too profound for a night out in Deal, stage hypnotist Chris Gillies inspired fits of belly-laughs in the first half.

“If they swear, I swear. If they say you’re having an affair, I’ll say it” - Roy Roberts, psychic medium.  

With the “power of suggestion” he got willing victims milking cows in time with the Charleston, they then reacted to extreme heat, and jiggled about scratching and splatting an ant and flea infestation.

The highlights of the show were undoubtedly “forgetful Andy” (aka e,i,e,i,o) who doubled up as a very serious Michael Flatley in the Lord of the Dance.

And of course, the marijuana-sharing hippies!

Both acts combined made it a great night and one to book again.
