James Harrison, Pick-Pocket Magician

James has performed across North America with one of his more recent talks being at the hacker convention, Def Con. He’s also been nominated twice for Excellence in the Arts and was named A-1 Radio’s Magician of the Year 2016.

As a pick-pocket magician, James borrows pens, watches, wallets, ties, and even belts from willing (and unwilling) audience members. Before you can yell “thief”, James has returned the valuables to their rightful owners, occasionally making them reappear in very unexpected places.

After a severe knee injury leaving him bed-ridden for over six months, James spent the long days practicing sleight of hand. Eight years later Mr. Harrison has risen to the top of his field in the performance of magic focusing on the lesser-known branch of the art of pick-pocket magic.
