Are you looking for ways to draw more adults into your library? Adults will happily come to your library if you offer the right program. Unfortunately, many performers either only do kids shows or their subjects do not appeal to adults. This program will appeal to your adult patrons, guaranteed.
My name is Cris Johnson. I have been performing for library, school and corporate groups professionally for nearly 25 years. I’ve always been interested in psychics and mediums. The supposed mind reading abilities of psychics satisfies a strong wish fulfillment in adults. And the ability of mediums to commune with the dead is a powerful way to give people closure or hope for departed loved ones.
But is direct mind-to-mind contact possible? Can we really contact the departed?
The problem is simple. Even if these abilities are real, the field is littered with frauds. There are people looking to take advantage of our deepest desires to know what our futures hold. Or to contact loved ones and receive comfort knowing they have reached ‘the other side.’
As a ‘mystery performer’ with over 30 years of experience, I am amazed at how badly people want to believe. After performing a “mind reading show” 20 years ago for another group of entertainers, I was asked afterwards how I received my special abilities. The genesis for this show was born that day.
Since then, I’ve spent decades researching past psychics, their methods, and even the steps mediums will take to ‘prove’ their abilities. And I have collected many of these methods into one incredible night of entertainment and education.
I have reached as far back as Nostradamus and as recently as Sylvia Browne. From Brown’s “visions” to the inexplicable spoon and fork bending demonstrations of Uri Geller, I’ve found a treasure trove of material to share. The astrological readings of Jean Dixon. Edgar Cayce’s supposed knowledge of the future. Cora Scott’s spirit communication. Even the humble rappings started and popularized by New York’s own Fox Sisters. The history of psychics and mediums is filled with colorful characters just as memorable as their reputed supernatural abilities. None other than Thomas Edison himself was riveted by the idea of communing with those who have passed on.
I’ve gathered everything I know about these past performers and their techniques and put it all in a brand new program for libraries. You now have the ability to bring this unique, interactive walk through psychic history to your library! It’s called:
“Psychics & Mediums” is a 60-minute historical demonstration. During this program,. your guests will hear stories about these wonder workers from the past. And I will demonstrate the actual psychic techniques these supposed supernatural experts used to work their magic. But that’s not all! After delving into the lives of histories most colorful mediums, your group will witness the same kinds of demonstrations past mediums use to show their sitters that the spirits were present.
The hairs will raise on the backs of guests’ necks as apparently contact with the afterlife is made. While nothing I perform is accomplished with supernatural abilities, your guests will get a taste of what made true believers out of the witnesses who saw these demonstrations decades ago. “Psychics & Mediums” is a presentation your patrons will love. Here are some highlights:
- How did Uri Geller convince millions of people he had psychic metal-bending powers?
- How did Sylvia Brown’s “visions” convince her followers she was genuine?
- How did the famed “Question & Answer Act” convince sitters that psychics could tell their fortunes?
- Why was Thomas Edison convinced we could commune with the departed?
- How did the Fox Sisters convince millions of worldwide followers they could speak with the dead?
- Ready to witness supposed physical proof of spirit communication?
Convincing Demonstrations of Other Worldly Contact
“Psychics & Mediums” is a fascinating look into lives and methods of these brazen individuals. Your guests will hear stories and see demonstrations, but they will be INVOLVED, too. Some just may be too frightened to join in the fun!
of all the programs I have created, this is the one I have spent the most time researching. Starting in my teen years, I have spent decades convincing people I have strange powers. Most of my library clients have never seen these demonstrations. Your guests will be astounded. And they will talk about it for months after.
The “Psychics & Mediums” program is perfect for adult audiences. It will not only draw them into your library but they will want to come to conduct their own research.
I bring photographs of the past psychics and mediums, and of course everything I need to demonstrate the same experiments these past performers used to convince the public of their special powers. The only thing I need from the library is a place to present the program! I’ve designed this show to easily fit in the coziest of meeting rooms. And I guarantee my presentations: if you do not feel I delivered an amazing evening of fascinating psychic demonstrations and spirit contact to your guests, not only will I return your check but I will also donate $500 to your library. I’m happy to report that after nearly 25 years of professional work, and performing 300-400 shows a year, no one has ever taken me up on my guarantee.
October always sells out, and that’s when most clients want to book “Psychics & Mediums,” so call (716) 940-8963 (that’s my cell number) or email me at email@example.com right away to lock in your preferred date.

“Last night’s event was such a great experience – I had patrons coming up to me afterward wanting you to come back for another program. There are typically two types of programs – ones that are interesting and ones that are fun. ‘New York Spirits’ was that rare experience of being both. With your retelling of New York’s interesting history paired with the surprising spooks the show had to offer, every left engaged and happy.”

“Teens and adults loved the Spirits program. They jumped when the spooky artifacts moved on their own. They leaned forward in their chairs during the stories and demonstrations. Cris is great to work with – he helped arrange tables, talked at length with the teens afterward, and was very engaging.”

“WOW! Thank you SO MUCH for the fantastic, incredible performance you gave with your New York Spirits program at the Eden Library on Halloween night. Attendance exceeded our expectations and your rapport with the audience kept everyone on the edge of their seats! Patrons loved the show. You did a fantastic job engaging everyone in the tales – I’m hearing so much great feedback from community members who attended and even MORE buzz from those who didn’t make it (lots of ‘well, when is he coming back?’) We truly appreciate your taking time to visit us that evening. I’m definitely looking forward to working with you again!”
