Isle of Wight based Magician & Illusionist Chris Philpott has been entertaining 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 studying performing arts for a BTEC 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 province of Nova Scotia. This would soon
lead into several shows across Nova Scotia and finally landing Chris with membership of the
Canadian Association of Magicians, thus being the only UK based illusionist to be accepted into Canada's premier association 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,
HRH Prince Charles 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 Isle of Wight Bestival.
In recent times Chris has become a Advocate of Russia, having worked at some of the most
exclusive clubs and bars in the Russian capital of Moscow. His first appearance 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, Kazan to Nizhny Novogorod.
