“Entertaining a group of 8 year old boys is not easy by any stretch but Phil was able to do just that. I thought it was awesome that some kids were familiar with his show from seeing him perform at certain city events. He certainly entertained the kids and parents. His jokes were appropriate for the age group and he engaged the crowd as well. He really did deliver with his show, he made my son “levitate” and also made a bunny appear, that really wowed the kids!”

“I love magic and have used other magicians.  My usual suspects were not available for my 50 birthday party so I found Phil on the web.  I wanted someone that worked well with adults.  Phil did just that.  He was engaging, funny, worked the room well and had crowds around him by the end of the night.  Thanks for making my 50th special Phil. “

“We want to make Jake’s 90th birthday party a memorable one and  Phil did a AWESOME job. He’s a great Illusionist…. Funny, had great sense of humor and did an EXCEPTIONAL job in entertaining all of us. We were all impressed. Everyone loved the finale, where Phil had to cut the newspaper into pieces and voila…the paper went back to one piece with Jake’s picture and his life story on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle “just amazing”…..I would definitely recommend him.

Phil brings a show to the schools that delivers a message and motivates the kids to be the best they can be. At libraries, he can tailor his show to theme of your reading program or event — and he’ll get kids checking out books after the show.


Phil’s magic is seen every year on 4th of July in Downtown Redwood City. He was the magician of choice for the City of Milpitas for their tree lighting ceremony and has been featured at many community events for Halloween extravaganza and other holiday celebration.

“Hired him 4 times already. He made magic “appearances” at two of our children birthday parties, at my husband’s 50th birthday celebration, and he provided first class magic and comedy for my client appreciation party with over 80 guests.  His talents are many and his personality is humorous and engaging by nature. Into his shows he weaves in facts and fun involving the person of honor – so each show is truly special and tailored to the audience. Phil’s magic never fails to leave the audience in awe and thoroughly entertained.”

“Phil provided wonderful sleight of hand magic at our company’s 10th anniversary Christmas Party.  He kept the tables laughing with his “adult” humor and wow’d them with his magic.  Phil knows how to cater to his audience and added a great personal element to this large party.  Even with a DJ, Casino tables and photo booths to contend with, many would stay at their tables so he would come by and “ give them a show”.  We love Phil and we continue to get comments sent in from our field employees about how great he was, and that they hope he is back every year.”
