Koningsdam fun on Holland America

I’ve been absent again for some time.  I know, it’s becoming a theme, but the upside is no one reads this, so google if you’re listening, I’m sorry.  I just returned from performing on Holland America’s Koningsdam for a week. I flew Toronto to Bridgetown Barbados and then sailed back to Lauderdale. The ...

Princess Cruises.

Once again I’ve been absent for some time. I’ve been on tour.  The agency that books my work, Artists West Entertainmet, does a fine job of keeping my calendar full. Sadly the means I’m not always connected to the internet enough to post my blog.  Lucky no one reads it, so there’s that.

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. Its interactive and still funny.  People feel they’r...

Safety Above All Else

It’s true, I’ve been absent for some time.  A month to be exact.  Once again Holland America Line was generous enough to hire me to headline shows with my Comedy Magic show in theatres on 2 of their ships over the course of 30 days, on opposite ends of the continent.I spent the first two weeks in Alaska, as I do most summers with HAL.  Amazing. Sitka, Juneau, Ketchi...

Hospital for Children

I’m certainly no great celebrity. I’m fortunate enough to have a busy performing schedule. Sure, I’ve done my fair share of local, national and international TV appearances and radio interviews on XM radio and national broadcasters.  That’s cool but end of the day I’m really just a working comedy magician. I specialize in corporate after dinner events. If you have ...

Where in the world is Matt

I am a magician. First, last and always.I work in comedy and am associated with being a comedian. I’m sold to clients and referred to as a comedian by many people, and agents but at its heart magician always comes first. In the show I’ll make you laugh. I will also amaze you at the end of each piece.  That’s the goal. Always leave them with a sense of wond...

ALASKA by Holland America

Largely because I’m a regular cruise ship performer, and as a headline entertainer I travel a TON on them friends, family and people I perform for at corporate conferences and conventions always ask what’s the best cruise to take? I get this all the time.  They want to know which cruise line is best.  More than anything people want to know the best destination. My answe...

Tech for Corporate Events

40 years ago today Sony released the Walkman.  It changed music and the way we interact with the world; or more to the point how we don’t interact with it.  Nothing was going to be the same after that first Walkman came out, a game changer.  Then Apple came along and changed the game again.  As I’m sure something will come to make the iPhone / iPod era look quaint and o...
