Name: Michael Johns

The stats: Born in the Midwest; lived in Vegas for 10 years; currently in Anthem.

Why he loves Las Vegas:
There is always something happening here! No matter what you want, you can find it in Vegas. Traveling around the world with my career, I’m often reminded how hard it is to find things that we take for granted here!

When you grow up known as the class clown, chances are you’ll end up working in comedy as a grown up. Michael Johns to a circuitous path to becoming one of the stars of Hypnosis Unleashed, the longest running hypnosis show in Las Vegas. He served in the U.S. Army, owned a music store, traveled with a German construction company and tended bar before he volunteered for a hypnosis show one night. Two hours later he was hooked and decided to incorporate hypnosis into his comedy act. Now he travels the world with his show, landing on cruise ships, casinos and colleges when he’s not performing at the Harmon Theater at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort. He also has a soft spot in his heart for dogs, and spends much of his free time rescuing pooches from kill shelters through Bound Angels and Pet Connect Us, including his lovable pal Bongo, a Jack Russell terrier.
