Biography

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 ...

Matthew King Magic - Mentalist / Mind Reader - San Diego, California Event Location: Encinitas, CA Event Type: Corporate Event 19th December 2021
Booked Matt for a corporate retreat. Great mix of mentalism, humor, and "how did he do that?" magic tricks! He did an intimate show for us, where every single one of the 13 folks in attendance was involved in the show somehow. Highly recommend him.

Matthew King Magic - Cabaret Magician - San Diego, California Event Location: San Diego, CA Event Type: Corporate Event 18th September 2021
Matt is one of the best magicians I have ever met, and I've hired many! His outstanding commitment to his craft really stands out through his professional presentation and showmanship. His backdrop and sound system brings an enhanced experience for hundreds of audience members. He truly deserves to have his own show in Vegas. I will continue to prioritize hiring him whenever possible. His reliability, communication and level of skill are all top notch. My clients are always happy with his performances, and ask for him again by name. Whether he is doing strolling, close-up magic or full stage shows; he leaves audiences amazed, thrilled, and wanting more. I couldn't recommend anyone more.

Matthew King Magic - Cabaret Magician - San Diego, California Event Location: Oceanside, CA Event Type: New Years Eve Party 31st December 2019
Matthew King provided entertainment for our New Years Eve party. He did his walk around/up-close magic and amazed everyone. He then did more of a formal show where he set up a dedicated area. Matt is extremely professional. He arrived early to set up, he dressed formally, he used clean language, and made sure everyone at every age group was able to participate. I would definitely recommend Matt to anyone looking to have magic/mentalism entertainment at their event.
