About Matt

Matt is one of the most original comedy magicians I have ever seen. His performance is nuanced, goofy, broad, full of humor on multiple levels, and his magic is baffling to the point of swearing off drink forever.
— Jacques Lord, Brown Club of San Diego

Matt Marcy has spent the last 15 years performing around the world as a comic-magician, keynote speaker, and emcee. With more than 3,000 performances under his belt, he’s entertained everyone from Hollywood celebrities to CEO’s of Fortune 500 companies to royalty. Matt has made a name for himself by combining his unique style, quick wit, and completely original magic and illusion, and is a regular entertainer for corporate events & private parties, as well as for theaters, hotels, clubs, casinos, colleges, and cruise ships. He is also a favorite at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, the most prestigious venue for magicians in the world, having performed more than 1,000 shows at the exclusive clubhouse. In addition to his comedy-magic performances, Matt is fast becoming in-demand on the speaking circuit with his one-of-a-kind inspiring keynote presentation, How to Think Like A Magician and Do The Impossible, and he's taken the art of magic in entirely new directions with his groundbreaking web series Disillusioned. The series, which blends magic and storytelling to explore the life of a magician, won the Best Comedy Web Series award at the prestigious Hollyweb Festival.
