HE’S helped peo­ple lose weight, quit smok­ing and over­come pho­bias, but next week Wayne Don­nelly (pic­tured) wants to get in­side your head for a to­tally dif­fer­ent rea­son. Mul­lumbimby co­me­dian Mandy Nolan will join the comedic hyp­no­tist when he mes­merises his au­di­ence into hav­ing a good time at Ocean Shores, near By­ron Bay. Don­nelly says the ef­fects of his hyp­no­sis leave au­di­ences ‘‘feel­ing bub­bly’’ weeks af­ter the show. ‘‘I aim for both the au­di­ence and the vol­un­teers to leave feel­ing much brighter and bet­ter about life than when they come in,’’ he says. As some peo­ple pre­fer to sit back and watch their mates ‘‘fall in love with a mop or dance like a chicken’’, Don­nelly says vol­un­teers shouldn’t be wor­ried about em­bar­rass­ing them­selves. He says his show is about about ed­u­ca­tion, en­ter­tain­ment and em­pow­er­ment. ‘‘No one is in con­trol of your mind ex­cept you,’’ he says. ‘‘I am mak­ing sug­ges­tions and if I sug­gest any­thing that goes against your per­sonal val­ues, you won’t do it . . . and as far as em­bar­rass­ing or hu­mil­i­at­ing peo­ple, why would I do that? Peo­ple wouldn’t come back.’’

Wayne Don­nelly and Mandy Nolan play Ocean Shores Coun­try Club on Wed­nes­day at 8pm. Tick­ets are $20.
