As a part of the celebration, Canadian born Cools was presented with a Life Achievement Award in recognition of the Longest Running Hypnosis Show on the Planet as well as a proclamation from Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman declaring May 7 as Anthony Cools Day. Later in the evening, Cools (aka The King of Sociability) held a private party followed by a special anniversary performance that was over the top, uncensored and incredibly funny.

Among the invited VIP guests in attendance were fellow local entertainers including Mark Shunock (Rock of Ages), comedy magician Murray Sawchuck; musician John Payne (Raiding the Rock Vault); singer Pia Zadora; prop comedian Carrot Top; master singer impressionist Gordie Brown; Travis Cloer and Devon May from the cast of “Jersey Boys”; singer Ben Stone; former American Idol finalist Jasmine Trias, comedian Crazy Jay (The Rocking Comedy Show), magicians Kyle and Mistie Knight, and others.

Be forewarned, if you haven't yet seen Cools' adult themed show, it is definitely not for those easily offended by profanity or graphic sexual references. Cools interacts with his group of willing volunteers who are put in an hypnotic state and proceed to perform all sorts of outrageous antics. A new set of volunteers every night means that you’ll never know what to expect. What is for sure is an evening filled with lots of fun and laughs.
