Professor Paranormal

Providing entertaining shows for very small and large groups and audiences!

Are you looking for a fun and different kind of entertainment for your party, banquet, corporate event or employee retreat? Do you want something exciting and humorous with a psychic theme for your paranormal or New Age conference?

Perhaps you want some chocolate along with your entertainment?

The World of the Paranormal is extremely popular these days. Even skeptics are fascinated by presentations of “psychic phenomena” — though they hardly believe.

Professor Paranormal (Loyd Auerbach) is able to deliver top-level entertainment with a paranormal/psychic theme, all the while never taking himself — or his subject — too seriously.

In other words, he engages, enthralls and entertains his audience with demonstrations of what appear to be genuine psychic abilities AND he gets the audience laughing — all without making fun of or embarrassing any of his participants.

loydHe’ll read thoughts and body language of audience members, make predictions of items freely chosen by spectators, influence actions of helpers, move objects with his bare mind, show members of the audience how they are psychic as well, and perhaps contact a few spirits (or at the very least leave the audience in good spirits). He’ll show you how those crazy tabloids likely came up with their even crazier headlines, and predict a headline an audience member creates from random word-cards.

And there’s his mind-reading mutant psychic pet!

 He is even available to tell fortunes and do readings with special chocolate of his own creation: the Cocoa Oracle Fortune Chocolates — and since he’s also a professional chocolatier, it’s not only good chocolate, it’s great! (Visit his chocolate site at Haunted By Chocolate for more information on his Guided Chocolate Tastings).

The Professor’s routines always involve the audience, and not just the helpers he brings to the front of the room. After all, without participation, he’d just be reading his own mind (and that wouldn’t be too terribly exciting, now would it?).

This show can be adapted for just about any size group, from the intimate dinner party to larger scale corporate and college events. In general, the show runs an hour, but timing is up to you, longer or shorter!

Loyd will work with you to make sure your Professor Paranormal experience suits your audience, venue and time requirements, and can usually tailor something special if your event has a theme or purpose he can tie in to. Chocolate can often fit in here (and doesn’t everyone love chocolate?).

His fees are reasonable, and generally based on the type and length of performance, (somewhat on) the size of the audience, the venue, and to some extent the location and travel (mainly whether beyond the greater Bay Area or not).

But even beyond the entertainment, beyond his chocolate, is his media presence.

Loyd Auerbach is one of the leading experts on Psychic Experience, Ghosts, Hauntings and Poltergeists. (See his Bio). An actual professor who has been teaching courses in Parapsychology and related subjects since the early 1980s, he’s been investigating the paranormal since 1979, has authored 8 books and many dozens of articles, and has appeared on hundreds of TV programs, in many, many hundreds of print articles and interviews, and on thousands of radio shows and podcasts over the years.

Bring in the Professor of the Paranormal who led David Letterman through a haunted house! He’s been on ESPN (SportsCenter and SportsNation), THE VIEW, LARRY KING LIVE, A&ECriss Angel: Mindfreak, Ghost Stories, Unsolved Mysteries, Dead Famous, SIGHTINGS, Ghost Adventures, Oprah, The Today Show, The Joan Rivers Show, The Late Show, In Search Of,   and many many more. Visit his YouTube Channel.

Many of your guests will be fascinated by his background, and — if they’re like his other audiences — will try to corner him after his show not only to ask “So how’d you do that?” but also to hit him up with their own questions about the paranormal.
