Magic Matthew Johnson

  • Nov. 20, 2013 5:00 a.m.

Submitted by the Haida Gwaii Arts Council–Named “Magician of the Year,” Matthew Johnson is also part juggler, comedian, balloon artist and crazy guy! His Comedy Magic Show features music, stand-up comedy and lots of audience participation. Bring your camera! The show provides great opportunities to catch your friends in funny acts. Matthew began performing many years ago in his native England where he developed his own unique style of magic. He has travelled the world entertaining both young and old, and after an extended stay in Japan, decided to make Vancouver his new home. His act is an energetic, uproariously funny, occasionally politically incorrect schtick complete with crazy stunts, hilarious magic, juggling and anything else that falls firmly in the tongue-in-cheek camp. He performs on Friday, (Nov. 22) at the Queen Charlotte hall and on Saturday (Nov. 23) at the Howard Phillips hall in Masset. Doors open at 7 pm. Tickets are $10 for members, $15 for non-members. Don’t forget about our draw for a pair of return tickets from Masset to Vancouver courtesy of Pacific Coastal. Every time a member purchases an admission to any of our performing arts events, their name will go in the draw. The draw will be made on the last show of the season on May 31. The more performing arts shows you attend, the more chances you have to win! Check for posters around town for more details and see our new website or our Facebook page for a schedule of the remaining shows for the season.
