Chipping Sodbury magician wins award
Local children’s magician Chris P Tee has won a ‘UK Children’s Entertainer of the Year 2018’ award.
Chris’ real name is Christian Peter Tayor, and he made his home in the town over twenty years ago. He works with a puppet he calls Cheeky Chops. He says he was ‘gobsmacked’ to be the winner as the competition, part of the Kidology UK Children’s Entertainer Convention, was “full of brilliant acts who were very well polished and experienced performers.”
Chris said: “My type of entertaining kids is based on slapstick and giving the children the chance to make the magic happen. When a child helps me with a trick, it always goes well for them and they get all the credit. I just look like I need help!”
The competition judges assessed Chris performing to children at the Austin Sports and Social Club in Birmingham.
