Professional Pickpocket Entertainer

Something truly different that people will never forget


Hire a pickpocket to entertain at a corporate event or party

Have you ever thought of hiring a pickpocket for your event? An honest pickpocket?! Richard is one of very few magicians and entertainers in the UK who also specialise in the art of theatrical pickpocketing which can bring something very UNIQUE and DIFFERENT to your event. Theatrical or entertainment pickpocketing is the art of stealing and borrowing items off spectators for a few moments, usually with some of the audience being 'in on it' and returning the items in a fun way. Dont' worry, he gives everything back and is very respectful!

Watch Richard steal ties, wallets, watches and phones from right under your nose as he 'picks a pocket or two'. This is pure variety entertainment at its best, live, interactive and on the spot..

Hire a pickpocket to entertain at a corporate event or party
Unlike magic where the secrets are hidden, with entertainment pickpocketing you can WATCH the items being taken and returned with hilarious results! This is one magic act where you are IN on the act! Imagine one of your group turning around and Richard is wearing their i.d. lanyard or watch or tie, there are endless possibilities for entertainment with the really loud people in your group!

TRADE SHOW PICKPOCKET

Pickpocketing is an ideal way to highlight theft but in an entertaining way as Morphisec found out when they hired Richard to be on their stand at #InfoSec2016 in London for 3 days. If you work in the security industry and you are having a trade show - what better way to attract an audience at your stand and build a crowd than hiring a professional pickpocket to have fun with your visitors? After drawing a crowd these visitors can then hear YOUR security message and it may even be possible to 'putpocket' some branded items (contact Richard to discuss). Ideal for companies involved in finance, fraud, CCTV, security, surveillance, software protection, police etc.

AN HONEST THIEF

Richard is a good pickpocket to meet! Of course he gives everything back within moments so you don't need to worry and is also very respectful of other people's belongings (never touches handbags for example). Almost all of Richard's pickpocketing is with guys, particularly those who are good sports!
