Apollo Robbins is a unique combination of performer, speaker and consultant. He first made national news as the man who pick-pocketed the Secret Service while entertaining the former President.
Apollo’s performances utilize pick-pocketing and sleight-of-hand to demonstrate proximity manipulation, diversion techniques and attention control. This unique set of skills has led to several national television appearances as well as both corporate and academic speaking engagements.
Apollo’s live show is a dynamic blend of Pick-pocketing, Sleight-of-hand and Con Games. Known as “The Gentleman Thief” he handles his participants in a non-intrusive way, without embarrassing them, often giving his audience a behind-the-scenes view. Apollo’s trademark is his unique ability to tell his “target” that he is about to steal from them, before he does it, right under their nose.
In addition to relieving the Secret Service of their watches, wallets, & confidential itinerary, Apollo was hired by the Phoenix Suns to steal Charles Barkley’s personal items. The producers of Alias had Apollo “borrow” Jennifer Garner’s engagement ring (given to her by Ben Affleck). Apollo switched Troy Aikman’s and Jerome Bettis’ drivers licenses. Tiffany & Co. had Apollo load their new private collection on their top VIP’s.
