Last Performance of 2019

Finished my last show of 2019 last night. Amazing crowd and killer show what a way to end the year ! I'd like to thank all the agents and producers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to keep me working. Its truly appreciated. I know the sales of comedy performers is an up at dawn pride-swallowing siege that I will never fully understand... but I thank you for...

Afraid of the New

Another late post, but I just returned from AMAZING shows on Holland America’s Neiuw Amsterdam in Central America on its way to the Panama Canal.  I honestly think that being a comedy magician, someone who can truly blend being a comedian and doing skilled magic is the way to really grab the crowd.

ALASKA by Holland America

On The Road….Again…

The snow is falling here in Toronto. I leave Sunday for 2 months on the road performing on various Holland America cruise ships.  I have two corporate after dinner events to perform at this week here in the city and then swoosh, I’m gone. Comedian and Magician Matthew...

Showbusiness or ShowArt ?

There’s no star system in Canada. That’s the problem. I've been working in show business long enough that its impossible not to be a little bit jaded by it. Since the age of 16 the showing of magic tricks and making them funny has been my sole source of income. Starting out its everyone's wild ambition to be the next David Copperfireld or George Carlin. Of course the longer you keep at it...
