About Matt Johnson

Matt Johnson - Vancouver Magician & Escape Artist

Who Is Matt Johnson?

International Magician and Escape Artist Matt Johnson is originally from the UK and now resides in Vancouver, Canada. Matt has been performing Magic and Escapes for more than 30 years.

In that time he has literally traveled the globe! Matt has performed in exotic locations such as Japan, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Panama, Italy and Australia.

Matt began his career as a Magician and Escapologist in his home town of Sheffield, England.

On his travels around the world his knowledge of Magic and Escapes grew, he picked up techniques and skills from the countries he visited and the people he met along the way. It’s this unique perspective that has allowed Matt to make his performances completely unique and utterly captivating.

Not your typical Magician, instead Matt has crafted a style know as Urban Deception, a refreshingly cool mix of magic and escapes combined with the comedic timing and slick stage presence of a seasoned corporate performer.

His performances incorporate magic, escapes, sleight of hand, mind reading, the power of suggestion, razor sharp comedy timing and audience participation into a performance that has been hailed as “…Simply Brilliant!” by Simon Cowell
