Longtime Riviera hypnotist Dr. Scott Lewis has died after falling from a balcony.
Lewis, 50, was in Sydney, Australia, to perform at the famed Sydney Opera House with other performers for an eight-day run.
His body was found on the morning of Jan. 11 on a fourth floor balcony.
Lewis was reported missing when he failed to get on a bus at the apartment for an 11 a.m. matinee performance.
Witnesses have said they saw an object fall at least 6 stories.
It is believed that he fell from his 11th floor apartment and landed on the balcony on the fourth floor.
No foul play is suspected, however, police believe that Lewis may have been climbing from one balcony to another before he fell.
The Sydney Opera House canceled a matinee performance of “The Illusionists 2:0” and dedicated the evening performance to Dr Lewis.
Lewis was a a licensed chiropractor and clinical hypnotherapist and was accustomed to being in the spotlight.
In addition to performing at The Riviera for nine years in Las Vegas where members of the audience were hypnotized on stage to perform comedic and outrageous acts, he also appeared on many television shows, radio programs and billed himself as an expert on the use of hypnosis for weight loss, smoking cessation, and motivation.
Tim Lawson, the producer of the show in Tim Lawson, told the Daily Telegraph that the show would continue in Dr. Lewis’ honor.
