CLOSING ENTERTAINER and HYPNOTIST: Tom DeLuca & the Power of Suggestion

Tom DeLuca recognizes the importance of the imagination and shows audiences how valuable a tool it can be. Business event planners and college event planners throughout the country call on Tom DeLuca to perform his comedy hypnosis show and ImaginACTION! Workshop, so that they too can harness the power of the imagination — and have a great time doing it!

DeLuca earned a Masters Degree in Psychology from the University of Illinois. While working as a therapist, he also began performing before local civic groups; then went on to hone his skills as a stage hypnotist throughout the mid-west before gaining national prominence.DeLuca on Tracks SS Crop IMG_5263-001
