Matthew J Dowden is the ultimate all round entertainer. Combining his award winning magic and inimitable sense of humour, Matthew entertains audiences of any size with his cabaret act which can be customised to fit in with your event. With a fantastic mix of magic and audience participation, but most importantly lots of laughs, Matthew is the only choice for after dinner functions or corporate engagements.
Close-Up Magic or "Mix and mingle" magic as it is often called is very popular. Since the rise of David Blaine and other TV Magic stars, people have wanted Table Hopping Magicians as opposed to a stand up act. However, there are times when you would rather have entertainment that everyone can watch at once rather than in smaller groups. This is where a cabaret style act can be the perfect choice for your event and it can be tailored to suit you with anything up to a 45 minute or 1 hour performance.
The nice thing about Cabaret magic is that it can work for any size group. Whether it is for a large function with 200 to 1000 people or you are having a private dinner party for 20 people, Matthew J Dowden never fails to be a hit with his stand up magic act, which is filled with amazing magic, audience participation and lots of comedy.
Matthew has performed his after-dinner style magic act for Royalty on many occasion including HRH Prince Harry and other guests.
