After a knee injury in 2002 ended his dream of becoming a professional athlete, James Harrison began to pursue his other passion: Picking pockets. But only for entertainment purposes, he promises.
His dedication to the craft quickly paid off when he landed his first professional performance after nine months. As James’ notoriety grew, he soon learned that pickpocketing is a family trade of sorts as his father used to pick pockets when he was younger. The difference being that James returns everything he takes. 
James has performed across North America with one of his more recent talks being at the hacker convention, Def Con. He has also been nominated twice for Excellence in the Arts and was named A-1 Radio’s Magician of the Year 2016.
