Hey! Welcome to the official website of Ben Dali, celebrated Stage Hypnotist & Mind Reader and Edinburgh Fringe Festival performer.

The UK’s premier hypnotist of the 21st Century  and star of ITV’s Take Me Out, Ben Dali returns to Edinburgh Fringe this year with his brand new show ‘Trance Of A Lifetime’.  After amazing audiences for years with the groundbreaking shows ‘Strictly Come Trancing’ and ‘Take A Trance On Me’, the Fringe’s first and best hypnotist returns with a brand-new hypnotic experience. ‘Trance Of A Lifetime’ invites audience volunteers to be hypnotised live on stage, before re-enacting a range of hilarious hypnosis sketches with a more adult twist than in previous years. From experiencing tragedy on the Antique’s Roadshow and stimulating handshakes to living through the world’s first 5D cinema adventure, ‘Trance Of A Lifetime’ is a game-changing show where the audience is the star.  The show takes place 4-26 Aug 2017 at the new time of 22:00 upstairs in  the Liquid Room Annexe with PBH Free Fringe. CLICK HERE for full details on the Ed Fringe website.  Ben also produces and hosts a free daily family-friendly cabaret variety show with all manner of acts across Edinburgh Fringe called Not So Secret Society at 18.30 in Bourbon Bar CLICK HERE for link to Ed Fringe site.



One of the UK’s most versatile and universally appealing entertainers, Dali will make your event unforgettable with his special blend of comedy, magic, psychology and audience participation. With the truly remarkable stage show ‘Strictly Come Trancing’ and ‘Take A Trance On Me’ which toured for 6 years, or the brand new ‘Trance Of A Lifetime’ which sees volunteers immersed in hypnotic scenes set around the local area and nearby landmarks, coupled with a unique style of fascinating close-up Mind-Reading, he’ll provide one of the entertainment highlights of your life.

Ben Dali guarantees lifelong memories, or your money back in 50 years.
