What would you consider the best term for labeling juggling and magic tricks?

Magical arts seems too magical. Performance arts may be too vague. Vaudeville too archaic. Etc.

Looking for thoughts,

Al, that's because you played vaudeville...LOL

I usually use variety entertainer/artist. Most agencies call us multi-talents. How about a multi-tainer.

Of course I meant to say, "This thing I on ...?"
Or, "Is this thing on ...?"

What were we talking about again ...?

I like multi-tainer, suggests I entertain the multitudes.
Which of course I do.

I knew a man who kept saying "pliers, pincers, scissors". He was speaking in tongs.

And if you perform for inmates you are a con-tainer.

or if you do the same gig every year you are a re-tainer.

or if you perform for large frecocious felines you are a lion-tainer....

OK the last one really stunk but comedy has to come in 3's
