Why, you May Ask, Should I Contact Chris P Tee Now? I've got plenty of time... I'm just Researching...
Because: 20% of People Hire me 3+ Months before the party date.
These People are ULTRA ORGANISED, they are like That Anyway, so don't feel bad. Some people seem to have complete control over their life and know what they want. It means that they are the ones who Book the Date and Time and Venue AND Entertainer they want, Guaranteed. It's what being Ultra Organised is all about. If this is Not You, don't worry. It's not me either.
30% Book me 6-8 weeks ahead.
These People are Organised alright, but they have competition. That Venue they wanted may be available, but the Entertainer May not be, or at Least not at the time, but they can move things around, they have Plenty of time. If they called their Preferred Entertainer FIRST, then all they need to do is find and Venue and there are LOTS of Venues.
40% Hire me 4-5 weeks before the party date.
You will notice that the Majority of bookings come within this timescale. If that is you, you are in great company. You can't hang about though as
"The Game is Afoot" and you have Competition.
You are All trying to find the same thing at the same time.
The difference is ACTION. Do Not Hang About.
Do you know the entertainer you want?
Have you seen them in action?
Have you read all the reviews?
Have you been recommended someone?
Whoever the Entertainer is, DO IT, Hire Them NOW!
Even if they are not available on the day you wanted, but the day before or after. Get Them, Then Get a Venue.
Most Venues are Not Booked.
Most Entertainers are Not Booked.
10% Must be Flexible!
Last Minute Bookings Happen A LOT.
Either they have been Let Down by some fly by night who broke their promise. Of they have realised last minute that they need Someone to entertain. Or that they have forgot to hire someone.
Or they are DIS-ORGANISED
Or, to put it another way:
A PARENT with Young Kid's, No Time to Do Anything and in Need of Sleep.
If I am booked already, I will put you in touch with a recommended entertainer who May Be Available and As I Only Work with Professionals, they will do the same if they can't help.
If you have Not got a Venue and you are doing a party at Home.
EASY, Change the Date to SUIT ME.
If you have a Venue but no Act.
Try to Change the TIME of the Party and Keep the Day if you need to.
There is always something you can do.
Get the Venue.
Get the Invites Out (I print them for you)
Get the Food the Day Before.
CALL ME NOW. I will help you. 01454 858586 / 07976884254
Get the Entertainer you need.
How Much Do I Charge?
Enough to make it worth My While and Make sure that You get a Brilliant Party and Piece of Mind.
Pay Less and Get Monkeys.

Beautiful hall today in Chew Magna. The stairs would normally be an obstacle, thanks to Blake for helping me make it up and down. Glad he did, I'd have struggled on my own. But look at this place. As Irene Cara once sang. "What a Ceiling!"

Really, it's taken me all week to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR?
What can I say, I've been busy.
I hope you had a fantastic 2016, I know, let's not go there. My year was amazing thanks to all the great parties I was part of and all the wonderful kids and their families I got to entertain.
Thank you for keeping me busy and I really hope to entertain twice as many this year.
Have a memorable 2017, may everything you need in your life materialise.

Bristol Magician, Christian Taylor aka Chris P Tee aka Doc Strange, becomes Proud Member of the Magic Circle.
It is with great delight, that on Monday the 10th of October 2016, I was accepted into the prestigious and World famous "Magic Circle"
Since I started performing magic at the age of 7, I have always aspired to become a member, but there were a few hurdles that I needed to overcome. To be fair, I could have joined years ago, but I kept putting it off and this is what happens when you Procrastinate.
I want you, dear reader, to understand that "Dreams Can Come True" but Only when you make the effort. If you keep saying, I will do it later, or tomorrow or when I am ready, it will never get done.
My advice to you, no matter what your dream, is "Do it NOW" Get started, get on with it. There is Magic in Commitment.
I want to thank my Mentor and Teacher "Jeff McBride" for showing me the way and giving me sound advice as a student of "The Jeff McBride Magic & Mystery School"
After years of performing magic, Jeff taught me how to up my game and see myself as a Magician, rather than someone who just does Magic Tricks.
Here is a sound piece of advice that Jeff shared with me that got me moving. It was written on a Postcard that I addressed to myself when I was at the school. I wrote my goals on one side and on the printed side was the following message.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dream't would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets:Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!”
― William Hutchison Murray
Jeff then mailed it to me 12 months later. Once I realised that I needed to move, I started building my Magic empire.
Now that I am a Member of the Magic Circle, the work begins to make myself a better magician. After all, I have a reputation to maintain.
I am awating news from the Magic Circle when I can go long and be presented my certificate by the President in front of an audience of my peers (Magician's I have respected and admired for years)
Now is the Day You Start and Say "I Can Do It and I Shall Do it NOW"

"What a wonderful party! I'm so pleased we chose to book Chris P Tee.
From one parent to another, I can assure you the service and then entertainment was worth every penny.
When I called to book Chris not only did he have me in stitches, he was efficient, professional and best of all knew his stuff.
I needed that, when planning my twins 6th birthday and trying to work. It got even better when he posted me a pile of printed out invites!
On the day, he was at venue before us, setting up and 'getting on with it' whilst also remaining calm and fun for the kids as they arrived.
During his show the kids were entranced, proper loud laughing (and the adults!)
We all agreed that to keep 40kids attention was very talented.
After event he didn't rush to disappear, still being approachable to the kids.
My girls loved him, other kids asking for him.
Think that pretty much says it all!
