YES, there is a difference between stage hypnosis and clinical hypnosis but not necessarily in the depth. I have seen many shows and most of the time, the skilled hypnotist will carefully select people who are most likely to "Play Along" that means that hypnosis allows them to be uninhibited and do silly things. Trance can cross countless levels from the slightest to the deepest. He may have known that you were still in a fog, so he probably awoke you and grounded you a bit more. No big deal. In clinical hypnosis you have a specific goal and the therapist guides you there and back in a safe and meaningful way. The stage stuff is all just for fun.
