Isle of Wight based Magician & Illusionist Chris Philpott has been enetertaining audiences at home and abroad for just over a decade. Having performed throughout the UK and his home county, Chris has branched out further afield entertaining overseas.
After studying Drama in High School and later stuying performing arts for a BTEC National Diploma in college, Chris' first break through was in 2008 when he teamed up with Canadian Magician Timothy Vallillee where the two would promote the New brand range of one of Canada's leading supermarkets Atlantic SuperStore in the provience of Nova Scotia. This would soon lead into several shows accross Nova Scotia and finally landing Chris with membership of the Canadian Association of Magicians, thrus being the only UK based illusionist to be accepted into Canada's premier associaton of the Magic arts.
Having been interested in magic since the tender age of 6 years old, little would he know that later he would make news again after performing for HRH Princess Beatrice of York and TV's former "Catchphrase" host Roy Walker amongst other well known faces. From his charity work supporting the NSPCC with a 60 second Escape through chains, padlocks, handcuffs and a straight jacket, Chris appeared in a one night only show at the world famous London Palladium and at the revived Isle of Wight Festival and the Bestival.
In recent times Chris has become a Patriot of Russia, having worked at some of the most exclusive clubs and bars in the Russian capital of Moscow.
His first appearnce in Russia was in 2014 assisted by one of his assistants the aptly named Babes of Magic, Vanessa Vavoom - the stage name of dancer & choreographer Vanessa Warry. Since 2014 Chris has returned numerous times to Russia travelling from Moscow to Saint Petersburg, Tver to Nizhny Novogorod. An intermediate speaker of Russian, Chris has grown fond of the country and holds a valid Russian permit. In addition to the world of illusion, Chris has wriiten a book about Tourism in Russia named "Managing Moscow" in which we hope will be produced at somepoint during this year of 2018. Joint with his memiors and tips on how to plan a vacation to Russia, Chris has taken to Lecturing about the Country and Culture in his one-man-lecture, both of which can be read more about on his new website... watch this space.
