Magic Show at North Vancouver City Library a HUGE hit!

Filed under: General — admin @ 10:25 pm

2nd show of the day was at the North Vancouver City Library where we had a record turnout for the MagicShow2Go Comedy Magic Show.

The City library did a great advertising campaign for this event with posters around the location and also an ad and write up in the North Shore News. All of this created a HUGE turnout of people eager to see Matt Johnson perform his world famous Comedy Magic Show.

Thanks again to the staff and attendees at the North Vancouver City Library for a great event. This was our 4th or 5th time back at the library and it did not disappoint.

BC magician Matthew Johnson performs his comedy magic show for the residents of richmondHi. My name is Matt Johnson and I would like to welcome you to MagicShow2Go. I started this company more than 15 years ago to provide the very best entertainment for special events.

It’s been a while since I updated the blog here at MagicShow2Go. The reason you may ask? Well, I have simply been way too busy with shows to come here and update the blog. I guess that’s a good thing but it really is better to keep you all in the loop.

2013 was a breakout year for MagicShow2Go. We did more shows right here in BC than any other year so far! That means we continue to be the #1 choice when it comes to special event entertainment for our Vancouver customers and we would like to say a BIG thank you to all customers of MagicShow2Go, old and new.

We were also invited to perform in exotic locations including performances in the Queen Charlotte Islands where the MagicShow2Go show broke all box office records for attendance at live events. Matt Johnson also performed as the Cool Balloon Guy in Dubai at the Marina Side Mall. 3 shows a day for 5 days to excited family crowds in the UAE. What a great thrill it was to be chosen from the list of worldwide entertainers to perform in Dubai, a real honour indeed!

All that being said, we are going to be blogging again on a regular basis and plan on keeping you up to date on all of our shows from now on.

Today the MagicShow2Go comedy magic show drew a HUGE crowd at the Children’s Arts Festival for Family Day. This was our second year at the festival. It’s a real honour to be invited back. I will personally be performing the MagicShow2Go Comedy Magic Show at the festival every day this week. Show time is 12:15pm to 1:00pm at the Richmond Cultural Centre Library so if you are in the area drop by and see the show. Today’s crowd wowed the artistic director of the festival as it was one of their largest ever!

Entertainers in vancouver, BCWelcome to MagicShow2Go. A  BIG Happy New Year to all of my customers old and new. 2012 was an AMAZING year and 2013 is gearing up to be BIGGER and better!

As one of the leading magicians and entertainers here in Vancouver, British Columbia I am always working hard to make special events AMAZING! As a consumer it is important to remember (first and foremost), when you are booking your entertainment, DON’T CHEAP OUT!

We all have budgets and we all have to tighten our belts in today’s economy but going for the cheapest entertainer does not guarantee you the BEST, sometimes not even close! In today’s world where it is as easy as 1, 2, 3 for anyone to call themselves an entertainer and put up a website it is more important than ever to make the right choice. You only get ONE chance at making your event spectacular! Once the day is over its done and the memories can never be replaced.

So, the rule of thumb, always book the best you can afford! Stretching the belt that little bit further means getting an entertainer that is incredible instead of just ok. That’s how everlasting memories are made.

As many of my repeat customers know, this blog is usually where I post about performances done to date. With my busy schedule it is becoming too large a task to keep this blog up to date with shows done to date so from now on I will be blogging about events and exciting news a little more randomly.

My last post about a show was at the end of October 2012, why? Well, if I told you that between November 1st and December 31st 2012 I did no less than 168 performances you may get an idea why I did not post…lol! I need 5 of me to get everything done these days.

Of those 168 performances I had the pleasure of performing everywhere from birthday parties to company parties, living rooms to banquet suites and theaters. It really has been an amazing end to 2012. Here are just some of the companies and organizations  I had the pleasure of performing for in the last 2 months of 2012:

Hollyburn Country Club, Adoptive Family Services of BC, Westin Wall Centre, CST Consultants, Taylor Park School, Bratz Biz, Whistler Arts Council, YVR, Collingwood BIA, Flexstar, Iron Workers Local 97, Tony Chan Real Estate, River Rock Casino, Back to Business Canada, Ladner Community Police, NRHS, ICBC, Life Labs, White Spot, Canadian Airways, Children’s Organ Transplant Society, Colliers International, West Point Sales, Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, Murray Jamieson Barristers & Solicitors, Matrix Logistics, Harvest Power, City of Burnaby

Add to this list home parties, birthday parties, festivals and more and you can see how busy things are around here. Busy is good, it means that I am doing something right :) So remember, if you are looking for entertainment look no further.

To access my various performance packages and websites click one of the links under the main banner at the top of this page. You will find three links, corporate events, family events and balloon artist. Each contains promo videos, show packages and more.

If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 604 788 9046.

My name is Matthew Johnson and I look forward to performing for you soon!

BC Children’s Entertainer performing in New Westminster and Richmond – Sunday the 28th of October 2012

Filed under: General — admin @ 10:51 am

Children's entertainer in Richmond BCAfter a couple of shows yesterday I managed to get some family time last night when we all went out to a Halloween costume party in Delta. It was tons of fun and we all got dressed up, even the dog was dressed as a skeleton…lol.

Today started off with a show in New Westminster for a little boy turning 5. I have been to the home before for his brothers birthday party. This year I was invited to perform for 2 hours. The first 45 minutes with my comedy magic show and the second hour and 15 minutes as the Cool Balloon Guy (click on the link at the top of the page titled Balloon Artist).

After two hours of fun, birthday cake, pizza and cupcakes it was time to wipe the frosted icing off my props and head off to Richmond.

My second show of the day was at the Abercorn Inn on Bridgeport Road in Richmond.

This show was for a little girls 5th birthday party and her family and friends. The theme of the party was Disney’s Brave. The little girl was dressed up as the main character Merida, she was really cute.

 

Vancouver Magician performs in Port Coquitlam and Vancouver – October 27th 2012

Filed under: General — admin @ 10:40 am

Magician in VancouverToday is Saturday the 27th of October and I had two shows today.

The first show was a children’s birthday party in Port Coquitlam. It was a 12:45am start which was nice as I live in Port Coquitlam so I got to spend some time at home with my family before heading out to the show. It seems that I don’t get much free time any more as I am ALWAYS performing these days. Be careful what you wish for I suppose…lol!

After the 1 hour children’s comedy magic show it was time to reset the show and head over to Ontario Street in Vancouver for a little boy’s 7th birthday party. The coolest thing about this party, I have been there twice before for his 6th birthday and his 5th birthday. That’s three years in a row he has wanted me at his birthday party! How cool is that :) You know you are doing something right when out of all the options he could have picked he chose me 3 times!

 

Children’s Birthday party entertainment in West Vancouver – Sunday the 21st of October 2012

Filed under: General — admin @ 12:22 pm

birthday party entertainment in Vancouver BC

Today was nice as I just had the one children’s birthday party show in West Vancouver. For many of you that read my blog on a regular basis you will know that I am always very very busy performing, one of the side effects of being popular I guess :) Hey, I am not complaining, I love my job!

To have just one show on

a Sunday is a rare treat indeed. I packed up my show and headed off to West vancouver to perform for a boy’s 6th birthday party. It turns out the family knew me from my performances at YVR through the summer.

I had a great time and so did the kids. If you are looking to hire an entertainer for your next children’s birthday party then look no further. Did I mention I am bias :)

Saturday the 20th of October – Ciniplex, Barnes Harley Davidson and Halloween party all in the same day!

Filed under: General — admin @ 12:07 pm

cool balloon guy at timseltownWOW! Today was a busy day to say the least.

I kicked things off with a performance as The Cool Balloon Guy at the Ciniplex Tinseltown movie theater complex in Vancouver, BC. Today was their Ciniplex Community Day and I was invited to do two hours of cool balloon twisting for the family crowd.

I did this event last year two and I would like to say it is always a real pleasure teaming up with Ciniplex for their community day event each year!

Thanks to Sheianne Dehaan and all of the staff at Ciniplex for a great morning. Early but great!

After Ciniplex it was off to Barnes Harley Davidson again for my second day at their customer appreciation event. I had another great day with Michele and all the Barnes Harley Davidson team. It’s a shame this was my last day with them, going to miss those biker guys and girls.

Finally I had to pack up in Langley, change my outfit and my show and head over to North Vancouver for a family Halloween Magic show with lots of parents and young children in attendance. How’s that for diversity! Performing for bikers and then kids in the same day :) There are not many entertainers in Vancouver that have the natural ability to change their performance style and show so quickly and be just as entertaining for both audiences and age groups. I know, I know, I’m good! and modest…lol
