Matt Windsor is a professional pickpocket (as seen on Crime Watch - genuinely!), but an honest one. Matt will surprise and amuse your guests with skills they might only ever see dramatised in films. A very experienced performer, Matt typically entertains at all sots of events, from intimate private functions to corporate audiences of hundreds.
Matt has pickpocketed on TV in the UK and abroad, performed for Royalty, celebrities, premiership footballers and top businessmen, been flown to events in Monte Carlo, Dubai, Qatar, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Berlin, Jersey, Le Touquet etc., entertained aboard cruise ships and at the famous Magic Circle.
Matt has also been the resident magician at Manchester United since 2000. An unusual career choice for a graduate in Law with an MBA.
“Can I keep it?”

“Thanks so much for a wonderful evening on Thursday - you were a huge success”
Michele Kirby, GAM Fund Management Limited
As a pickpocket one of the most important things to understand is how to include and entertain the “helper” as much as the audience as he/she is pickpocketed, so that they are never a victim. With over 10 years experience picking pockets Matt’s “helpers” will often laugh longer and harder than their friends.
“Hi Matt, You went down a storm and we definitely hope to use you again.”
Holly Lomas, AstraZeneca
And finally - Matt has many amusing anecdotes of pickpocketing, including taking a wallet from a policeman’s trousers on a flight, having an MD’s phone start ringing on stage in Matt’s pocket, before he knew it was missing, and working for Crime Stoppers advising shoppers how to keep their belongings safe!
