A Chicago-native, Chris Jones took a roundabout way to becoming a performer on the college market. While in graduate school, he became fascinated with the art of hypnosis and found the missing piece of his show. Performing three shows a week while obtaining a Masters studying Therapeutic Recreation, he tirelessly analyzed every second of his show to find the perfect balance of conjuring, psychology, comedy and suggestion.
Chris Jones' audition in Episode 1001 consisted of hypnotizing Howie Mandel, a germaphobe, such that he shook hands with both Chris and the other judges. Howard Stern buzzed the act when he felt Chris was taking too much time setting up the act, but he later apologized for his buzz. He impressed everyone and is here to hypnotize!
