Com­edy hyp­no­tist Matt Hale is get­ting ready to throw open the doors to his Feel­good Fac­tory at Fringe Fes­ti­val this week.

COM­EDY hyp­no­tist Matt Hale is pre­par­ing to open the doors to the Feel­good Fac­tory.

The in­ter­na­tional per­former, three-time na­tional com­edy award-win­ner and Scar­bor­ough res­i­dent will re­turn to the Fringe World Fes­ti­val with his big­gest and best out­ing yet.

“It’s an am­pli­fi­ca­tion of the good vibes that seemed to em­anate for a few years around the show,” he said.

“I can­not wait to present this one – whether you’re tak­ing part or whether you’re watch­ing, I want you to leave with a nice buzz.”

Hale, re­turn­ing to Fringe for his fourth fes­ti­val, said the Feel­good Fac­tory was all about leav­ing with a pos­i­tive mind­set – and peo­ple sus­cep­ti­ble to sug­ges­tion would par­tic­u­larly en­joy it.

“One of my favourites was the break­danc­ing nanna. Her grand­son had been a break­dancer, and he would al­ways prac­tise in front of her,” he said.

“I’ve done rou­tines where peo­ple dance like no one’s watch­ing, just un­bri­dled danc­ing.”

The per­former said it was fan­tas­tic to see artists from across the coun­try and the world ar­rive for Fringe “at the most joy­ous time, sum­mer in Perth”.

The Feel­good Fac­tory will ramp up across four venues in Ya­gan Square, Cock­burn, Scar­bor­ough and Ocean Reef.

“You’re go­ing to leave feel­ing amaz­ing, you’re prob­a­bly go­ing to re­mem­ber a cer­tain dance and you’ll leave with the knowl­edge that you’re in con­trol of the way you feel,” Hale said. “We’re go­ing to laugh a lot.”

Matt Hale’s Feel­good Fac­tory runs from Jan­uary 18 to Fe­bru­ary 17. To find out more, visit fringe­world.com.au.
