October 4, 8pm
Matt Johnson is originally from the UK and now resides in Vancouver/BC, Canada. Matt has been performing and perfecting his craft in the art of illusion for more than 20 years. Over the past 20 years he has literally traveled the globe performing in exotic locations such as Japan, Dubai, Argentina, Australia and throughout Europe. He has performed at theatres, on cruise ships and for any of the world’s largest companies including Mercedes, Ford, AT&T, Toyota and Microsoft to name just a few.
Matt began his career in his hometown of Sheffield, England where he started as a traditional magician and illusionist at the young age of 13. On his travels around the world his knowledge in both
magic and the mystic arts grew. He picked up secrets and techniques from the countries he visited and the people he met along the way. It’s this unique worldly perspective and his unique life stories that make Matt Johnson’s act truly unique and remarkably refreshing. Matt’s show is not simply a magic show it’s a glimpse into the life and dedication of a born illusionist.
Matt’s performances are absolutely unique and completely captivating. He delivers his illusions with the edge of a street magician combined with the slick presence of a seasoned stage performer.
Every performance incorporates magic, mentalism, the power of suggestion, stunts, comedy and audience participation into a performance that was hailed as “….WONDERFUL!” by Las Vegas magicians Penn & Teller.
Most recently Matt was featured on SyFy’ channels hit tv show Wizard Wars, TEDx and CTV Breakfast Television where host Keri Adams said “WOW….YOU BLEW MY MIND!”
