A full-time professional close-up magician and pickpocket, Matt will entertain your guests with amazing sleight of hand magic, surprise them with his unique pickpocketing skills (Matt can even steal someone’s tie and put it on himself without them knowing!), and – he is guaranteed to get everyone laughing as he does it. From an intimate private function to a corporate audience of hundreds, you can be certain that the entertainment of your guests is in good hands.

Matt has appeared on TV in the UK and abroad, performed for Royalty, celebrities, premiership footballers and top businessmen, been flown to events in Monte Carlo, Dubai, Qatar, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Berlin, Jersey, Le Touquet etc., entertained aboard cruise ships and at the famous Magic Circle, and he has promoted companies and their products at Trade Shows throughout Europe and the UK. Matt has also been the resident magician at Manchester United since 2000.

Incidentally, Matt has the rare accolade of probably being the only person to have ever pickpocketed a member of The Royal Family, and kept his head… for now.

Close-Up & Table Magic
Typically at company dinners Matt entertains as a close-up and table magician, performing during the reception drinks to break the ice and enliven the atmosphere, gathering guests in groups to enjoy the entertainment. Once the guests are seated Matt will perform close-up table magic, introducing himself to each table in turn, bringing laughter and a touch of magic to your event.

Magician Matt has performed his unique close-up magic at all sorts of events, and possibly the most outstanding being for Manchester United’s matchday hospitality: as the resident close-up table magician, performing at nearly every home game for 8 years, matt has performed at approximately 5,000 tables.

Pickpocket
Matt’s pickpocketing skills are unique: he has possibly the fastest watch-steal on the planet, and can even take someone’s tie off and put it on himself without them knowing. Matt will surprise your guests with his deft pickpocketing techniques, and he’s guaranteed to get your guests laughing as he does it. In fact Matt often uses the moment people laugh to remove items from them. He also uses his skills as a close up magician to distract people’s attention from their belongings, but can also pickpocket whilst disguised as a security guard, as a character, as a waiter or even the MC.

Wedding Magician
With Matt’s extensive performing experience he is happy to discuss how his close up magic might best compliment your day. Although very flexible, typically Matt will mix in with the guests and entertain them during one or more of the following times: during the photos/reception drinks, around the tables for the wedding breakfast, and at the evening party.

Undercover Magic
Your guests will be surprised by the unusual service that Magician Matt (disguised as a waiter) provides. He subtly introduces a plausible yet eccentric combination of “Fawlty Towers” service and bumbling waitering that is guaranteed to get the guests talking. Matt bemuses guests with his harmless antics, and to their amusement introduces his amateur magical skills. These turn out to be peculiarly proficient, actually quite magical, and get everyone laughing.

As dinner draws to a close and the coffee is served your guests will be most surprised to see their waiter is actually the after-dinner entertainment, and even more so when he starts by returning many of their belongings!

Our team were greatly impressed with the way your performance fully engaged and entertained the audience in the difficult environment of a bustling international show. More importantly theway you integrated our products and services into your act turned a potentially dry message into an intriguing and valuable proposition. Most importantly as acompany we had a clear aim to bring in a large amount of potential new business at a show that had in the past delivered very little for us. We comfortably exceeded our targets thanks to the methodology we employed. Your own role waspivotal to that success."
