I do a theatrical séance and will be performing for a group of shut eyes as entertainment after dinner. It's a very cool convention called Spirit Quest. Anyway, they are asking what to put under my name. Currently they have me listed as "master of bizarro magic." I don't care much for that title and would like to offer an improvement. I don't think medium is appropriate because many attendees will be mediums of a more genuine nature. Any suggestions?

Phantasmosist?

Ethereal illusionist, sidereal illusionist, akashic illusionist.

I think a bespoke name for this particular gig is a great idea.
Let is know how it goes and break a leg. Or talking glass, at least Smile

Paranormal investigator or something with that word.
For as long as space exists,
And living beings remain in cyclic existence,
For that long, may I too remain,
to dispel the sufferings of the world.

Wow great suggestion! I'm liking something unusual for this. I might be a Phantasmosist!

This may be a difficult gig, performing Seance for those who may be able to do the 'Real' thing ?

Medium is the traditional title. You can also go with professor or reverend if you don't feel that is misrepresentation. BTW, a seance medium's assistant is called the 'Control' just in case you are looking for that proper name. Assistant has a theatrical ring to it.

For me I have always used & preferred "Paranormal Entertainer" whenever my shows are a ghostly / seance type performance. It explains exactlly what I am & will be doing for my guests & spectators.
I usually like do small parlor - close up settings, but when I have done anything that is large stage performance I would list myself as a " Theatrical Paranormal Entertainer". Again only if the show revolved around being a ghostly - seance type show, I add the word "Theatrical" to it as my stage show has usually been more theatrically performed than my parlor shows.....

The webpage is in its infancy and incomplete. The venue is a great old camp building run by nuns in the 50's. Was originally a fabric facory turn of the century. Spirit Quest is in the large main original building. Groveland Mass

Godzilla,
I went last year and scoped it out. In this case, folks are folks and entertainment is entertainment(as long as its entertaining). Thanks for the warning. I just need to make sure I am entertaining and I should be OK!

Steve, I'm sure you will be fine ! Smile
That was an after thought, I have seen people say they can talk to the dead(Played for Real), and shake my head and think to myself...
How in the hell is he getting people to believe this BS ?

Again, Break a Leg !

I like "Spiritist". But it seems like your thoughts on the venue call for putting "entertainer" in there. Understandable. In that venue, I myself would go all in. Because I have different thoughts. And of course, thoughts have to be backed up by confident action in order to play out.
