♥ Phil Smith knew he wanted to be a magician at the age of nine when he encountered a magician at a party who made an item magically appear in his hand. He was hooked! He has been studying and learning about magic, and related arts (juggling, dance, mime, and comedy) as his life’s passion ever since.
♣ Phil received a BA in theater from the University of Southern Maine and trained with visual comedian/juggler, Randy Judkins in mime and juggling. He worked his first venues at community and church socials and birthday parties where young children, families, and adults have been delighted with his shows for many years. Nothing makes a memory last like great entertainment!
♦ His public shows include energetic performances at L.L. Bean, Portland Pirates Stadium, the Maine Mall, and even on the Portland Sea Dogs field. Further, he has been creating magical experiences performing at private parties in homes, and at wedding receptions and rehearsal dinners throughout his career.
♠ Phil performs what he calls his ‘Marketing Miracles’ at Trade Show booths around the country where he draws a crowd in through irresistible performances, and customizes his illusions to incorporate company branding messages. Phil is also known for providing a dynamic and interactive element to any variety of corporate training programs. He has developed techniques to deliver key learning points through magic and illusion, more deeply engaging participants in the materials, and therefore learning and remembering better. Seeing people truly enjoy themselves, while they learn new things, gives Phil greater meaning in his work.
♥ After training with world renowned magician, Jeff McBride and many other well-known magic stars, Phil went on to win Best Magician in Maine, several times. He has been combining expert sleight-of-hand skills with mime, clowning, juggling, and slapstick humor in his performances for many years.
♣ It all adds up to fun, energetic entertainment for Phil’s audiences!
