Matt Johnson is originally from the UK but now resides in Vancouver, Canada. Matt has been performing and perfecting his craft in the art of Magic, illusion and comedy for more than 20 years.

 Over the past 20 years he has literally traveled the globe. Matt has performed in exotic locations such as Japan, Dubai, Argentina and Australia and for companies such as Mercedes, Ford, AT&T, Toyota and Microsoft to name just a few.

 Matt began his career in his hometown of Sheffield, England as a traditional magician and illusionist. On his travels around the world his knowledge of the arts grew and he picked up techniques and skills from the countries he visited and the people he met along the way. It’s this unique perspective that has allowed Matt to make his performances completely unique and utterly captivating.

 Not your typical magician, instead Matt has crafted a style know as Urban Deception. A refreshingly cool mix of urban style street magic combined with the comedic timing and slick stage presence of a seasoned corporate performer. Every performance incorporates magic, sleight of hand, mind reading, the power of suggestion, razor sharp comedy timing and audience interaction into a performance that has been hailed as “…Simply Brilliant!

Matt also has countless TV and movie credits to his name. In the summer of 2017 Matt appeared on the hit TV show Penn & Teller Fool Us! In 2014 he also starred in Wizard Wars on SyFy, a show that sees the worlds top magicians battling head to head. You may also recognize Matt from his starring role in a Nationwide Insurance TV commercial where he made a car vanish with hilarious results. As a magic consultant Matt has worked on many shows including “Secret Agent Man”, “Taken”, “6th Day”, “Balderdash”, “Dog Dancing”, “SnowQueen” and countless other shows.
