Hello, I’m Christian Peter Taylor MMC
aka Chris P Tee Magician and Chris Doc Strange Comedy Stage Hypnotist.
I’m a full time Comedy Magician, Entertainer and Member of the Magic Circle (that’s the MMC) based in Chipping Sodbury, on the Southern Part of the Cotswold Edge. Just North of the City of Bristol.
I live in Chipping Sodbury with my wife and daughters.
They are all from here, I am from a little place further North, Blackburn in Lancashire. I left there when I was 18 years young, to Travel and see the World. My travels have taken me all around the World and I landed here, in the medieval village we call home. This means it’s my base of operations, from here, I travel the Globe.
My daughters are in their teens, but when they were born, I was here to be their doting dad and never left their sides. Best thing I ever did was staying at home to help them grow and teach them to be as daft as me.
During their preschool years I took them to lots of activity centres and anywhere we could find something to do. When they started school, we went to lots of Birthday parties. I was always disappointed by the “Entertainers” who either didn’t seem to even like kids, or couldn’t connect with them and not one Comedy Magician that made the whole family laugh they way I do.
Then, I saw Nutty Noah and my life changed. Here was a guy that is as daft as I am (maybe more so) who Loves Entertaining Kids and had a laugh with the parents too. After a chat, I was sure that there was a place for me, but didn’t do anything about it until my daughters Birthday.
It was my daughters idea that I started entertaining Children and Families again,
“You can do my party Dad” she said and before I knew it, I did her friends Parties too. That was in 2010 and I’ve not looked back. I wish I’d started as a Children’s Magician sooner as it means that I don’t have to take bookings that are a 10 return drive on a Saturday night. I can and do work locally at Weekends and during the week get the odd booking too.
Back in the day, I was a Mobile DJ from the age of Eleven and by the time I was 14yr, was doing Birthday parties and school shows. I’d been a Magician since I was 7 and on stage at 5yrs, so it’s what I do.
B.C. = Before Children, I travelled the World, performing at Holiday Resorts, Army Camps, Cruise Ships and the like. When ever I was back in Blackburn, I was entertianing in Working Men’s Clubs, Football Clubs, Pubs and everywhere else people went to get drunk and smoke. I used to hate coming home stinking of fags, even though I did it myself back then.
That was a long time ago, and thanks to all the Parties I perform at and the bootcamp I frequent, I feel younger and stronger than I did before becoming a Dad!
I don’t only do Magic. For years I entertained with my Stage Hypnotist Show as Chris Doc Strange, a madcap character that was a little bit naughty, but always look after his volunteers. It’s not that popular these days and I don’t fancy hiring venues and selling tickets.
As a comedian, magician, ventriloquist and stage hypnotist, I perform for all kinds of events.
Weddings to Children’s Birthday Parties, Corporate Awards to Cruise ships and for People of All Ages.
It’s great being versatile and getting the chance to travel the World doing job I love.
