Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the show?
For most corporate functions, the ideal performance time is 30-45 minutes. Guests have been in meetings, golfing or in sessions all day. Once they’ve had dinner it’s time for the entertainment. A 30- 45 minute program has enough visual kick that even the most exhausted person can enjoy the performance.
How does Matthew deal with onstage volunteers?
It’s all about relationships. Years of performing in over 40 countries for audiences from all walks of life, Matthew has developed a keen ability to read people quickly. Selecting guests that want to be onstage and treating each volunteer with respect, Matthew never asks guests to do anything embarrassing. They ARE the stars of the show and are treated as such.
Do I need a big stage to book the show?
No. Not every event is held in a theatre or convention hall. With that in mind Matthew has created a show that packs small and plays BIG. Tailoring material to play in the smallest boardroom, largest hotel ballroom or theatre, Matthew has performed for groups of 20 at intimate resorts and for crowds of 6000 at concert venues and everything in-between.
Is Matthew a magician or a comedian?
He is not strictly either. Matthew is a comedian AND magician. Magic is simply the vehicle in which the comedy is delivered. Like a traditional stand up comedian Matthew aims for a laugh every 30 seconds throughout the performance with clean, and corporate friendly interactive magic. None of the comedy detracts from the impact of the magical effects, and there ARE really magical moments in the program. You end up with a show that is very funny, while at the same time leaves you amazed.
Does he do children’s birthday parties?
NO. NEVER. EVER
