 What is The Honest Cheat?

The Honest Cheat tells tales from a rarely glimpsed a world of gambling and cheating. I will perform hustling demonstrations of how a con-man my persuade you to believe something that is not true, to lull you into a false sense of security, with hypothetical games, all under safe conditions, so your guest’s can experience the world of the con without losing a single penny.

 A Little More About My Magic.

There are many styles of the magician. Some are loud and brash, others are stereotypical top hat and tails and we also have the less experienced magicians, you know the one where your uncle performs a few card tricks after dinner.

 Well, luckily I’m none of the above. My style of magic is modern, like what you see on the TV, Dynamo magic, a feast for your eyes, performed to a professional standard.  Something unexpected and different for your guests to interact with, using mobile phones, bank notes, and everyday objects to amaze and astound all. Dressing with a smart casual feel, your guests will be surprised when they learn a magician is amongst them, performing mind-blowing magic, keeping them laughing and engaged creating the perfect party.



Together we form a team, working hard to make sure your guests are having the best time, keeping them laughing showing them extraordinary demonstrations of magic and peeks into an impossible world.  I want your guests to experience wonder and delight something different to get excited and amazed, to ultimately create the party.


I perform across Birmingham and the West Midlands from Sutton Coldfield to Solihull, Jewellery Quarter to Bournville, from Wolverhampton to West Bromwich give me a call now to see what I can offer you 07967155970.


We thought you were amazing!  We found you to be very engaging with the audience, very professional yet welcoming. We really enjoyed working with you and hope to work with you again. Our Christmas plans are very exciting this year as our theme is Constellations. I’m sure we can tie magic in here somehow, so I will be in touch when we have a more firm plan.

A few requests I hear all the time.

“I want something different”

“I want the WOW factor for my party”

“I want people laughing and really enjoying themselves”

“I don’t want this to be another boring normal party”

” I want to make someone feel special to me”


There are a lot of factors to any event, but by booking me Phil Taylor magician for your entertainment, I help solve all of the above and a lot more, people really enjoy “LIVE” close up magic to give the gift of magic an experience you can’t get anywhere other than right here and now is something special that leaves long lasting memories, try asking someone right now about a magician they have seen live, I bet it was years ago and if so that should tell you how strong having a good magician like me at your event will be.  People will be talking about your event for years after, guaranteed.

A fact I picked up a few years ago, most people will only ever see two magicians in a lifetime so they will always remember your event.

Wow where to start?! Phil was amazing from start to finish from the minute he entered the room. I booked phil as a surprise for my other half’s 40th birthday and I’m so pleased I did. Every adult & child in the room was blown away with phil, messages the next day talking about him and even asking for his details for them to book. I honestly can not recommend phil enough for any event/party, he is perfect and exactly what my fella dreamt of for his party. Thank you to phil for being as amazing as he was with everyone and for putting the perfect touch on a fab night. Can’t wait to book and see him again!!
