An Arizona man has sued a Las Vegas hypnotist who placed him in a trance — claiming he suffered $47,000 worth of injuries while under the performer’s spell.

Kevin Casselbury, of Scottsdale, filed a lawsuit against Marc Savard, his company, the V Theater Group, and Miracle Mile Shops, where he performs, for the alleged harm from the Feb. 10, 2019, show, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The lawsuit does not describe the alleged injuries, but accuses the staff of being responsible.

The lawsuit alleges that Savard “failed to warn Mr. Casselbury that an unreasonably dangerous condition existed” in the theater during the Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis Show.

As a result, Casselbury claims that while hypnotized, he suffered injuries that resulted in medical care and treatment that cost in excess of $47,000, according to the news outlet.

Planet Hollywood Resort, the show’s production company, also is named in the lawsuit filed last week in Clark County District Court.

“Defendants negligently failed to control, supervise and maintain the premises inside the theater … which resulted in Mr. Casselbury’s injuries,” Casselbury’s attorney Leila Hale wrote.

Savard is described on his website as having “mastered the art of mesmerizing people at 19.”

At age 23, he was hit head-on by a drunken driver and suffered a broken back and fractured skull, according to his bio.

“Marc was forced to leave the stage and use his hypnotism skills on himself. Marc not only defied his doctors grim prognosis by making a rapid and complete recovery, he left them in awe by controlling his pain with mind power instead of medication,” it reads.

His website explains that all of the volunteers who take part in his shows are actual audience members.

Hale and reps for Savard and Miracle Mile Shops did not respond to requests for comment by the Review-Journal.

A Planet Hollywood spokesperson declined to comment, citing the pending litigation.
