The Team
Ryan Oakes
Although Ryan Oakes is best known for using his sleight-of-hand skills to entertain audiences, he is equally adept at using his talents for other pursuits.

With a degree in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, Oakes uses his training to make the impossible seem like anything but. He believes that an understanding of human behavior, perception, language and non-verbal communication are vital tools for pulling off a successful con.

An indispensable member of The Real Hustle team, with a professional acumen that complements a sparkling personality, Marco has what it takes to give her targets a feeling of ease while taking on any role required. Dani's grace under pressure and ability to ad lib provide her street creditability and make her the ideal shill or distracter in any scam.


Apollo Robbins
us_the_real_hustle_004.jpg Apollo Robbins is the leader of The Real Hustle crew, and for excellent reason. After all, he is the man who made news by pickpocketing Secret Service agents as he entertained Jimmy Carter, relieving them of their watches, wallets, confidential itinerary and keys to the former President's limo.

Raised by a conservative minister father and two half brothers who were pickpockets, Robbins chose a career that reflects both parts of his upbringing. He utilized the skills he witnessed from his siblings, performing a con-artist and pickpocket show at Caesars Palace for many years.

Robbins spends the majority of his professional time working with individuals who earn livings from their knowledge of cons, including police officers, fraud investigators, tourist security experts, card sharps, pickpockets and scam artists.
