The ‘magic bug’ bit Phil when he received a magic kit for Christmas at the age of 10. Phil’s skills grew as he studied the all time great magicians such as Houdini, and trained with each free moment. He began a magic club with Woody Woodward.
Phil received a BA in theatre and trained with visual comedian/juggler, Randy Judkins in Mime and juggling. He worked his first venues at church socials and birthday parties. Young children, families, and adults have been delighted with his shows. He has been making great memories that last lifetimes.
Shows have included energetic performances at peoples’ homes and at LLBean, Portland Pirates Stadium, Maine Mall, and the Portland Sea Dogs Field. Further, he has been creating magical experiences by performing at wedding receptions and rehearsal dinners.
After training with world renowned magician, Jeff McBride, and many other stars, Smith went on to win Best Magician in Maine, several times. Phil has been combining expert sleight-of-hand skills with mime, clowning, juggling, and slapstick humor for many years. It all adds up to fun energetic performances for Phil’s audiences.
