Shiny Toy Guns mix the spirit of the '80s with Modern Rock and dancefloor sounds

Comedy: Gary Conrad

0 Comments · Tuesday, October 28, 2008
Comedian Gary Conrad found his way into hypnosis rather serendipitously. The former stockbroker, looking for a way to improve his concentration while bodybuilding, discovered hypnosis in 1980. At first he pursued it clinically, even traveling to England to study. He eventually took his skills to the stage and has been performing ever since. Not unlike his peers, Conrad’s show uses high-octane audience participation. He’s not out to embarrass anyone, of course — it’s all good clean fun. Well, maybe not clean. He does offer a few “erotic” shows in each town. Along the way he also mixes in suggestions for weight control, smoking cessation and so on. Oddly, folks will often come back to his shows three or four times in the same week, in the same town. Maybe sit in back the first time and lay low. Conrad performs Wednesday-Sunday at Go Bananas in Montgomery. $8-$12.

Though he became famous as host of BET’s Comic View, Hamilton native Gary Owen didn’t have what one could call an urban upbringing. “We lived in a little trailer park on Highway 27 called Island Lake Mobile Community,” he says. Shortly after graduating from high school, a friend rousted him out of bed and took him down to the naval recruitment office.
