In 2007, Eric founded Groupe Entourage, which specializes, along with its divisions, in creating, producing, broadcasting, and distributing television, stage, and musical content. The Groupe also leads an artist management agency in Canada and in France. In 2015-2016, the company and its fifty employees presented over 800 performances of popular shows and special events in Quebec and in Europe selling a total of more than 700,000 tickets.
MESSMER THE HYPNOTIST
Eric Young ensures, among other things, the management and stage and televisions production projects of the infamous Hypnotist Messmer, both nationally and internationally. He is the man behind the Hypnotist character. In fact, he was the one who discovered Messmer in the early 2000s, who co-created the Hypnotist character with him, who told his story, and who lead the staging and artistic development of all of the artist's projects. All stage and television productions in which Messmer has taken part were partly or entirely created by Eric Young.
In 2013, driven by the success of the Messmer project, Eric envisioned the concept of the ambitious FantastiX stage production that incorporates branches of magic and hypnosis into each of its stories, which, combined with circus arts, result in a whimsical approach. In his design, the fanciful story behind the show had heroic tendencies, as well as a futuristic and scientific focus. The project entered the workshop phase in 2014 with the goal of nothing short of dusting off the traditional magic show, creating a distinctive trademark, and making it an international commercial production.
