STAGE/CABARET MAGIC SHOWS:
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! Depending on the venue/event, show typically include the set-up of a mini-theater, including pipe and drape theater curtains, banners, a Bose P.A. system with wireless mic., and all necessary tables and supplies. All shows include audience participation and create long-lasting 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.
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.
Matthew King's mind reading will make you and your guests believe he might REALLY HAVE the special gift! He reads the minds of 9 people at once by determining what playing cards they are each THINKING OF, causes two volunteers to feel each others sensations telekinetically while their eyes are closed, and predicts the future with your guests! The memories last a lifetime.
I was amazed by a magic effect at age 7, and it intrigued me that it was possible to create a different aspect of reality for people. I received my first magic kit at age 7 and started saving my errand money, mowed lawns, and I worked hard to invest in my magic knowledge and illusions at a young age. My first paid performance was at age 12 and, by age 17, I had put together a stellar act with grand illusions, assistants, doves, and visual magic. I took this act and auditioned for the Academy of Magical Arts' Junior Society (a.k.a. The Magic Castle), and I was accepted as a member. After workin ... g simultaneously in law and magic for 17 years, I am now just a full-time magician.
