So many good things to say about Matthew. First of all, his performance is definitely a cut above the rest. Not just entertaining for the kids, and definitely not a clown with a few tricks up his sleeve. Someone you actually want to watch, although I didn't get a chance to sit down at our daughters' combined birthday party. I have been hearing great things from guests since the party.He is very professional. He's great at following up and responding, willing to work with your budget, shows up a little early and not rushing out the door once his time is up.Another quality I appreciated was that he was patient with guests. There was a child that was a bit blunt when interacting, I was a little embarrassed. But Matthew held his composure and kept the ball rolling. I can tell he has a lot of experience under his belt and really cares about his business. I look forward to hiring him again in the future and hopefully get to sit down and enjoy the show.Thank you for the awesome service, Matthew! More...

Magician Matthew King is exactly what is name says-magical.  He made our annual company holiday party one for the books this year.  It was a masquerade theme party with Matthew King as the special surprise guest.  None of us knew who he was because he even wore a mask!  His tricks were truly amazing and I still can't wrap my mind around any of them.  He interacted so well with everybody in attendance and has been the talk of our office even days later! I would highly recommend him, you will not be disappointed.  I look forward to another event where we can get the chance to hopefully bring Matthew back to show us some more mind boggling tricks! Thanks for making the night extra memorable! More...

Matt was amazing at my stepson's birthday party this weekend! The kids and adults loved him. He's entertaining and great with his magic tricks. I'm still scratching my head wondering how he did a lot of those tricks! We are all very impressed. I'd highly recommend him for kids or adult parties. Thank you so much, Matt! More...

Matt was amazing at our son's 6th Birthday Party! We had kids and young adults at our party and EVERYONE had a great time. He is very entertaining, really good with the kids and professional. We hired him because he was at another playmates Bday party and we loved him! His prices are reasonable for the amount of time he stays and makes balloon animals with the kids afterwards. Matthew is recommended by my family for sure! More...

My sister and I hired Matthew King to come to a restaurant to entertain a crowd of 38 kids between the ages of 2 and 12. You would not believe me if I told you how PHENOMENAL Matthew King was. We were celebrating an event and Matthew kept all the kids entertained. All our friends were so happy to be able to enjoy a lunch with each other. After the Magic show, Matthew spent time making balloon animals. He was so wonderful with the kids. They had a crowd around him and he was so patient. I highly recommend Matthew!! You would not be disappointed. More...

Our family and two other families were weekend vacationing in San Diego so we decided to book a magician to come to our Airbnb for a morning show. Matthew was great during the booking process, showed up exactly when he said he would and performed an amazing show. We had 6 adults and 4 kids (ages 4mos-7yo) and he was able to cater to us all. It was funny, amazing, made us happy and so engaging. We loved it and would totally recommend him!  There was so much magic! More...

I have worked with magician Matthew King twice.  He was very professional both times. What really impressed me was how he was able to connect with two very different audiences. The first time he engaged an audience of millennials. But most recently he connected with mostly senior citizens in such a special way. It really touched me how he included every guest at my volunteer luncheon. Plus we were all talking about how he could make his illusions happen! How entertaining. If you're considering hiring Matthew for your next event, do it! I think you will be happy you did. More...

Seriously the best!!! Matthew came to our school for a mother/son date night and he kept the attention of everyone in the building. He is amazing at what he does. The smiles on my boys faces are the best. More...

Matthew King is one of the best magicians in San Diego. He is dynamic, impressive, constantly improving, reliable, has great communication, and is a super likable individual. Professional in everything he does, I highly recommend hiring him for any sort of event that could use a little WOW and amazement. I will definitely be continuing to work with him in the future.

Matt is one of my favorite magicians! Always a pleasure to work with, reliable, friendly, professional, and communicative! He is on time, provides a great experience for the audience, and has some of the most incredible magic tricks! Great for close-up magic, strolling a party or doing a show on stage. Highly recommendable, quality guy! More...

Hired him for my girlfriend's dirty thirty and he was awesome! Had everyone amazed and laughing the entire performance. Would definitely hire him again. His prices were also very fair for the amount of entertainment he gave. He really made the party memorable More...

I spoke with Matthew through Yelp and he replied so quickly and even followed up days later when I didn't get a chance to reply. Great communication and very friendly :) More...

Matt performed for our 8 year old's party & we are so pleased with his work! From the beginning he communicated thoroughly and in a timely manner. He arrived early for set up and was very professional. He kept the kids occupied with some preview tricks as we were awaiting more guests to arrive, which they loved!  During the show, he kept the kids (and adults!) engaged with a full set of back to back tricks that even kept our teenagers wondering, HOW!? He was very patient with the young group and was a real pleasure to work with. Tear down time was quick but not hurried - He even unpacked an extra balloon on his way out to repair one that a child popped. You are AWESOME, Matt! Thank you for making this special day a fun, magical one! 5/5 would use again :) More...

We just celebrated both my children's 4th and 2nd  CIRCUS theme Birthday yesterday, and we thought it would be great to have a magician there. Found Matthew on Yelp, and decided to hire him for the job. We had guests as young as 2 yrs old and 80+adults in attendance, and EVERYONE WAS ENTERTAINED by him. He came early to prepare and was ready on time to perform. He was very accommodating to us, for time spent getting everyone seated for the performance. Matthew King the Magician had lots of volunteers able to assist with the tricks, and kept people laughing and amazed. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for helping make my children's birthday a success!! More...

Professional & Courteous, what more can you ask for? We hired him for our holiday party at our company. Arrived on time, then we were running behind schedule, he patiently waited. Once it was show time he captivated the audience with his tricks & humor. Lastly, our lights went out unexpectedly & we got our phones out & put flashlights on. He finished the show without skipping a beat when it happened. You can't go wrong with this guy!! More...

This will be one of those 'look no further, drop everything and book Matt' reviews. If you're looking for a magician, you found him! Matt entertained about 20 kids (and all the applicable adults) at our sons fifth birthday today. He was patient, kind, amazing with the kids, and put on an outstanding show. If he did a trick that some kids weren't into, he immediately switched it up... I can honestly say that he kept every kid (and adult) entertained for a good hour. Any parent knows how hard it is to keep a 5 year old's attention for even 20 mins, so this was an amazing day for us! I booked Matt a few months out and he was right on top of getting back to me, working out scheduling with me, and always responded any time I reached out. He was punctual, spent the time with us he promised (plus some)... was not rushed and totally wanted to help make this day amazing for our son. He offered balloon animals at the end for all the kids and they were amazing! We really could not have been happier or more pleased - we even had several parents come up to us to ask about hiring him and where I found him! Hands down, we recommend Matt! More...

We couldn't have been happier with choosing Matt as our entertainer for my daughter's 6th birthday party. He was so great with the kids, and even kept the adults wondering "how did he do that ". He was on time and very professional. We highly recommend him! More...

Matt was the entertainment for my 5 year old's birthday party. There were about 20 three to nine year olds and he kept everyone engaged and entertained. Adults loved him too! Super professional set up with a stage and table and all sorts of props. He called on almost all the kids at different points of his show and really kept them mesmerized. It was a great chance for parents to relax and enjoy the party. Matt had to drive to LA in the pouring rain to get to us and he was on time and totally buttoned up. Thanks Matt! More...

Matt was the hit of our 5 year old's birthday party. The kids (even 2 year olds) were entertained and excited about his show. The adults laughed and were even stumped by a few of his tricks. Matt was professional in communication, easy to work with, and fairly priced. He would be a great addition to your next event or party. More...

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Matthew! He came to start up my son's 6th birthday party and children and adults alike enjoyed the show. Super easy to work with and very flexible. His counterpart who came to do face painting also was such a sweetheart! Reasonably priced for the great talent he has! Would totally recommend to others and will most likely have him over at future parties :) Thank you so much for everything! More...

Good bargain magic show. I hired him for a small, private showing of 50-60 college students and he got a good feel for our humor level and played to it well. Took off one star because communication wasn't strong when I was booking him, but he was busy with Halloween work and the show turned out fine by the end so it's understandable. He was really helpful  with helping us find a spot for his performance as well. Definitely worth booking if you want a good price for an entertaining show. More...
