Matt performed a 45-minute stage performance that showcased his magic and comedy. Afterward, Matt performed tableside magic for attendees for an additional 2 hours. His performance was extremely well received. Matt's stage performance combined amazing, Las Vegas-quality magic with charisma and humour- he was an energetic and captivating performer. What was even more impressive was his tableside magic. Most attendees commented that this was their favourite part of his show.

BC Crime Prevention Association
Your show was perfect for our event, including having some of our guests "randomly" selected to go on stage, and also involving the audience - you sincerely entertained everyone; I received really great feedback! Your entertainment helped to set the mood for our upbeat Christmas Party, complete with the magic snow fall in the ballroom (how did you do that?!) and the music it accompanied, it was all superb.
Doctors of BC
No one at our store is ever going to forget this Christmas Party. You personally made it such a memorable event! Your magic and deceptions were wonderful, but your true magic was how you connected with all of us as if you had known each of us for years.
