A mind-reader, an after-dinner entertainer who mingles with the dark forces of the paranormal. Philip Escoffey occupies a unique world of psychics and his mind-bending show will leave audiences stunned. Philip's incredible intrusion into the mind's of others is both fascinating and wildly intriguing.
After dinner entertainer Philip Escoffey occupies a unique world – that of mind readers, the paranormal and psychics, which has divided us for as long as it has intrigued us.
If a stranger told you who your favourite teacher was, how would you feel? If he also knew what lottery numbers you'd choose, what would you think? In its most contemporary sense, he is a mind reader. He mingles with guests, talking and listening, and then reads their minds.
Philip has spent the last ten years travelling the world, leaving the rich and the royal intrigued and often embarrassingly clingy. Any opportunity to see mind reading's enfant terrible live should be taken.
He consults, and often appears in the media, more recently as an expert consultant on Channel 5's "Britain's Psychic Challenge."
In 2010 Philip devised, co-wrote and presented the eight part game show ‘Impossible’ for Channel 5.
Premiering at Sydney Opera House in 2012, for the last two years he’s been touring the world as one of the original cast in the global stage phenomenon, ‘The Illusionists’. It’s been performed to over half a million people in theatres and arenas all over the world, including 7 shows at London's Hammersmith Apollo.
Away from the bright lights of stage, television and sunbeds, Philip continues to enjoy the intimacy of performing live at corporate and private events. Otherwise he can be found reading books, watching television and avoiding dance floors. He also gives talks on the psychology of belief. As a sceptic, psychology graduate and magician, he has a fascinating insight into seemingly inexplicable claims and events.
What Philip does is as effective around a dinner table as it is at a drinks party. His performance is self-contained and requires no specific conditions. Exceptionally high noise levels are one thing that can be potentially prohibitive. Philip can work with English, French, German and Italian speaking audiences.
