About Phil Knoxville

Phil Knoxville

Phil Knoxville is the stand-up magician with the twisted skills to pay the bills and a fully fledged licence to ill. His rock star looks, silver tongue and twisted magical skills have seen him do tricks that can make audiences both wince in shock and convulse with laughter, channelling as he does the very best of Jerry Sadowitz, Jackass and Jim Rose. He's appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe twice, a regular comedy competition finalist and perfoms at stand-up comedy clubs, magic and cabaret nights, theatres and private functions across the UK. A gig without him would be like the Tower of London with no ravens.
