Attendees to the Five State Fair will be in for a comedic treat the nights of July 29 and 30 with performances from comedy hypnotist Chris Mabrey.
Having witnessed his first hypnosis show at the age of 9 with his father, he decided at a very young age what his path in life would be. Since 1995, he has worked with hypnosis and trained under a world-renowned hypnosis master.
The fair board had approached Mabrey about bringing his act to Liberal after seeing him at the Colorado Fairs and Festivals Convention.
“He’s been doing this for a long time, and we wanted to get him over here so we worked out a deal where he’s going to put on four shows here,” Larry Phillips, Five State Fair board member, said. “That way if people come out and have a fun time and positive experience, they’ll tell their neighbors, and they can go back the next day and convince them to go or they’ll go see it again. A lot of times people will say ‘oh you missed a good show, you should have been there’ but the show is over.”
Mabrey will be performing for free in the entertainment tent at 10 p.m. on July 29 and 30. He will also be performing at 7:05 July 29 and 6:05 July 30 prior to the Gospel Sing Off and Susie McEntire concert, respectively, but those tickets are $10 and include the concerts.
