"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. Hes 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 doesnt 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. Dont let his height and skill-set intimidate you, El Ropos tricks are for magicians of all
