Comedian Rich Guzzi's stage act started as a goof on TV psychic John Edward. At first, it was just a five-minute joke buried deep in his routine. "I would do an hour-and-a-half set, and audiences would always pick out this bit," recalls Guzzi. "So, I added hypnosis to it. Next thing you know, my career totally took off." While Guzzi still tosses some typical stand-up material into his stage show, people come for the magic. "I make people do all kinds of wacky experiments [onstage]," he says. "And they don't know what happened to them."
