"Phil is an entertainment machine and knows how to get the maximum reaction to any effect. Here he will share with you his valuable techniques that turn simple tricks into commercial routines."
Jon Armstrong

"Like most of the veterans of the Magic Castle, it took me a while to key into the world of El Ropo. It has, however, been fascinating to watch his metamorphosis into a Castle favorite, after his having logged in literally thousands of performances here. He's a vaudevillian 'trickster' with excellent magic chops."
Jack Goldfinger

"Phil makes audiences happy! Whenever I know Phil is performing, I bring my guests to see him. Phil is silly and his magic is amazing. He is great entertainer! If Pee-wee Herman and Will Rogers had a love child it would be Phil Van Tee."
Paul Draper

"El Ropo surely doesn't string you along - he carefully ties together his many years as a working pro, looping practical magic and unique comedy into one big beautiful bow. Don't let his height and skill-set intimidate you, El Ropo's tricks are for magicians of all shapes and sizes."
Rob Zabrecky

"Phil Van Tee is a charming and funny performer, one I love to watch over and over. I have worked with him many times on many different kinds of stages, and his routines keep the audience enchanted for the entire spell of his show. He is a dangerous desperado of magic!"
Pop Haydn

"Give Phil Van Tee enough rope and he'll not only amaze an audience but entertain the socks off them. He could then take those socks and dazzle them some more! Amazing, entertaining and clever, this DVD set is a must-have!"
Mike Bent
