Christmas Party IdeasDecember is almost upon us!

Although my schedule is about 75% full I recognize that a few companies and organizations in Vancouver are still looking for last minute entertainment ideas for the Christmas party.

If you are looking for staff Christmas party ideas or entertainment ideas for your Christmas party you have come to the right place.

My name is Matt Johnson and here at MagicShow2Go I have been providing #1 rated Magic Entertainment to private parties and corporate events for more than 20 years. Not just in Vancouver but across BC and Canada.

As I offer many performing styles for all age ranges let me make a few suggestions to set you on the right track.

If it is a corporate staff party you are planning and are looking for high caliber entertainment for adults check out my Urban Deception website where I offer my own unique form of magic mixed with sleight of hand and mind reading

On the other hand if you are looking to entertain the kids at a company Christmas party or special event try my family themed website at

Finally, for something completely different check out my Cool Balloon Guy website at and find out why clients such as YVR and Whistler Children’s Festival book me year after year.

I look forward to working with you soon!

Cool Balloons for party in Abbotsford, BC.

balloon twisters in british columbiaToday is November 23rd and I was out in Abbotsford, British Columbia.

The event was at a bowling alley in Abbotsford and the occasion was a birthday party.

I was hired to perform my kids comedy magic show for 45 minutes followed by 15 minutes of balloon twisting which kept the kids entertained and out of the parents hair. Always a good thing as the parents get to relax for an hour.

The party was a rock star theme so I was asked to create a balloon sculpture for the birthday child around the theme. I came up with this cool Cheetah Girl complete with guitar and microphone. Cool balloon creations for the birthday child come as standard with all my birthday party packages.

vancouver balloon artist and corporate magicianToday is November 22nd and I was busy with three events which showcased my broad spectrum of entertainment skills.

Over the 22 years (or more) that I have been in the business of entertainment I have developed many different skill sets that keep me busy as one of Vancouver’s most premier entertainers.

The day started with a comedy magic show for a family who’s little girl was having a “Frozen” themed party. On top of the comedy magic show I was asked to create a one off balloon sculpture for the birthday girl in the theme. The pic here shows the result and to say she was thrilled would be an understatement :)

As a balloon artist I perform as the Cool Balloon Guy, a character you can check out by visiting my balloon website at for more details.

The 2nd show of the day was very similar to the first but this time for a boy with a “Jake and the Neverland Pirates” theme. Again I created a custom balloon creation within the theme of the party.

I should mention that when you book a birthday magic show with me you get a 45 minute show that is hilarious and suitable for both the kids and the adults. You also get balloon creations for every child + a special custom balloon creation just like the ones you see here for the birthday child. All of this is included in the birthday package.

For more details on this hilarious show visit my family magic website at

To finish the day off I was asked to perform strolling-magic and a

short stand-up performance for “The Magic of Brockton”. This event was put on by Brockton school and took place at the Pinnacle Hotel in North Vancouver. As an annual fundraiser this event helps raise valuable dollars for Brockton school.

100′s of people were in attendance and I was hired to wander and entertain people with incredible close-up magic in my signature Urban Deception/Street Magician style. I then acted as MC to begin the evening and Segway into the official dinner in the ballroom with some stand-up style magic.

Another busy day performing magic!

Christmas magic show for a concrete company at Westwood Plateau.

magic show for a corporate christmas partyToday is Friday the 21st of November and I performed at Westwood Plateau Golf and Country Club today.

The client was a concrete company that I performed for in 2013. I am thrilled to say that they booked me last year to perform at their corporate Christmas party and were so happy they booked me again this year.

I performed my signature comedy magic act on stage for the 180 people in attendance including both adults and children.

After years in the business of entertainment I keep hearing time and time again how my show is so unique in that it truly appeals to all ages at the same time. To perform for all ages in the same show and keep them all entertained is no easy feat that is why you should always pay more for a professional entertainer!

Performing for a Corporate Client in Whistler, BC.

brewhouse whistlerIt’s Tuesday the 18th of November and today I did the long drive from my home in Abbotsford, BC to the beautiful mountain ski destination of Whistler, BC.

A client of mine from Quebec, Canada was having their annual meeting and this year it was to be in Whistler at the Brewhouse.

I had a fantastic night with my client performing my unique brand of strolling close-up magic and mentalism which I have coined “Urban Deception”. The group was quite small with only about 60 guests but what they lacked in number they more than made up for with enthusiasm and two hours just flew by.

After that they were nice enough to put me up at a beautiful room in the Chateau Whistler with an amazing breakfast thrown in for good measure. Returning to Abbotsford the next day I was reminded just how lucky I am to have a great job and amazing clients too. Clients that stay with me year after year.

To learn a little more about my unique brand of street style magic known as Urban Deception and how it would fit perfectly at your next corporate event visit me at

Matt Johnson performs at YVR in aid of Autism

Filed under: General — admin @ 2:25 pm

Vancouver International AirportIt’s Monday the 17th of November and today I performed at Vancouver International Airport. I have performed more times than I can remember at YVR and it’s a great place to hang out with the family even if you are not planning on flying anywhere as their is lots to do.

Today I was especially excited to be at YVR as I was asked to perform my magic for children and families affected by Autism. It was a real treat to perform visual magic for these children and see the delight on each one of their faces.

Thanks to YVR and it’s partners for inviting me on this special night :)

Creative magic is the key to success!

Filed under: General — admin @ 2:02 pm

Vancouver magician and entertainer Matt Johnson knows how to be creative, actually he is one of the most creative and entertaining magicians not only in Vancouver but in Canada too.

“Being creative and original is the key to my success” says Matt from his home in Port Coquitlam. “I have been in the full time business of magic for more than 20 years and in that time have built up my company MagicShow2Go to be one of the busiest in Vancouver!”

Staying on top of the magic game is no easy feat with over 100 magicians to choose from in British Columbia alone, yet Matt Johnson of MagicShow2Go remains incredibly busy. It seems when Matt gets a customer he keeps a customer and that is probably the biggest key to this Vancouver entertainer’s success. His customers are quite simply, so wowed, they keep coming back for more.

Clients such as Vancouver Airport(YVR), Grouse Mountain and Barnes Harley Davidson have kept Matt and his company as one of their favorite entertainers for years bringing him back again and again.

This past weekend alone saw Matt Johnson performing at 4 shows ranging from a movie screening at Metropolis Metrotown to an event at UBC, from kids to adults, he does it all.

In the upcoming weeks Matthew’s schedule is incredibly busy with 27 shows booked in the month of June alone. I guess you could say his childhood dream of being a professional magician has turned into a successful reality which is more than ok for this UK born entertainer.

To get in on the action call today and book Matt Johnson for your next event but be forewarned, call soon as he is in high demand!

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.
