Albert Nerenberg is an acclaimed director, hypnotist, and one of the world’s top experts on laughing. He directed Laughology, the first feature documentary about laughter for CTV, and developed his own laughter exercise technique called Laughercize. He was named “Laughter Ambassador” by Madan Kataria, founder of the Laughter Yoga movement. Nerenberg’s TEDX presentation “Is Hypnosis Fake?” is one of the most watched demonstrations of hypnosis to date. His film, You Are What You Act, was awarded the Jury Prize at the 2018 Illuminate Film Festival. We list his credits as a Director first.
