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 guest 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.
Like many professional magicians, it started for Matthew King at the age of 7. He was fooled by a magic effect, and determined to know the secret. He was captured by the concept of creating a different aspect of reality, and that even the most brilliant of minds could be deceived with certain principles (and hours of practice and dedication). He began reading magic books from the library, originally to learn the secret which fooled him, but ended up learning many other magic effects. By age 9, he was cutting his older brother in half (using a refrigerator box he "constructed"). His first profe ... ssional performance was at the age of 12, and, by the mere age of 17 (in 2000), he was accepted as a member of the Magic Castle's Junior Society. Performing for corporate and private events, and collecting and practicing over the decades, you can rest assured that magician Matthew King has the skills and material required to guarantee your clients or guests enjoy themselves.
