Philip Escoffey

Philip Escoffey AKA The Grey Man, is one of the UK's top psychic illusionist/mind readers. A Psychology graduate, Philip has been earning a living as a mentalist for the last 10 years.

A confirmed skeptic, Philip is dismissive of spiritualists, mediums and astrologers. However, he has a deep academic interest in the reasons why people need to believe and is an expert in how techniques like cold-reading are employed by psychics the world over. To this end, Philip was recently seen adding a little balance to five's Britain's Psychic Challenge.

Philip is currently previewing his stage show "Six Impossible Things Before Dinner" in London, before embarking on a month long residency at the Pleasance Theatre Edinburgh.

Philip has been on the show on two occasions.

Interview one first broadcast on 23rd June 2006.

Interview two first broadcast on 18th July 2008.
