Who HASN'T wanted to learn a magic trick in the past? It is a common feeling most people have experienced. Magic is intriguing, a great ice-breaker, and a utility you always have on hand. It challenges logic and promotes critical thinking! Private lessons are available for adults, kids, or groups! Lessons can be conducted in-person, or virtually. 




Mentalism, mind reading, and comedy! More adult in nature and recommended for Audiences ages 18+

A close-up magic show is similar to strolling magic, except that the magic is performed for a smaller audience all at once, oftentimes sitting around a table. It involves magic commonly used in strolling, plus a few other magic effects that are too cumbersome for a pocket. This is most commonly booked for groups of 10-15 people and smaller dinner parties.  

Parlor magic is also commonly called "Stand-up Magic", or "Living Room Magic". Matthew's Parlor Magic involves some magic props, close-up magic, and unforgettable mind reading. It's a magic show on a smaller scale, without the full stage and curtain set-up. Most commonly booked for smaller groups, business meetings, smaller company parties.    

The "SHOW" Show

An award-winning magic show experience! Includes stage magic, close-up magic, mind reading, and comedy magic, all wrapped into one unforgettable magic show! 


Matthew's magic shows are customized to the event, venue, audience size, etc. They involve amazing mentalism and mind reading, unforgettable magic props, and many hilarious and magic surprises! Some events/venues will include the set-up of a mini-theater, including pipe and drape theater curtains, banners, a portable Bose sound system with wireless mic., and all necessary tables and supplies.  All shows include audience participation and create great memories for your guests!

Strolling Magic, AKA "Mingle Magic", "Roaming Magic", "Roving Magic", and "Walk Around Magic":  Matthew roams around the party performing card magic, coin effects, sleight of hand, mind reading, and mentalism. It's a great addition to large groups like corporate events, mixers, weddings, restaurants, and holiday parties. Strolling magic helps "break the ice" for clients, business prospects, new friends, employees, and co-workers.
