“Over the past few years I hired two magicians for my son’s birthday parties as he loves magic. Matt Cadabra stands head and shoulders above the other magician we hired in 2011. Matt’s magic skills are top rate and he can incorporate some of the same amazing tricks that he has on his website into his show. Just as important as his skill, is his character. Matt is very patient even with a house full of spirited kids. Additionally he is very honest, I unintentionally overpaid him, he alerted me and sent me a refund the same night. I plan to hire Matt the next time we want a magic show. Highly recommended!”

“Matt, Thank you again for your wonderful magic show this afternoon, the children at Blessed Sacrament really enjoyed it! (In fact one of the little girls called it “the best show ever”, and we’ve been having these parties for 14 years(!)”
-Barbara Gollin, Philadelphia, PA

“A good way to describe Matt when it come to dealing with children is: Miracle Worker!”
Veronica Beal, Philadelphia, PA

“Matt, Thank you again for a fabulous show! You were all that and a cup of soup. You made it easy for me on the planning end of things, as you are responsive and responsible. As an entertainer, you probably don’t even realize how great you are. Your personality shines through your act, giving it a light beyond the well-rehearsed and carefully chosen elements of your show. You are kind and funny, with a gentle firmness to keep the kids engaged and controlled. You captivated and charmed every child and adult in the room with your obvious talent and true love of your craft, mixed it up with humor, humility, showmanship and a great sense of timing. You brought us intrigue, fear (they Loved the zombie ball), accompanying music, amazing balloon art/toys, and your adorable bunny.

Anyway, you are a household name. Adam and my nephew Ben Broker (you performed at both of their parties) speak of you with awe and admiration. You are Famous and Interesting, which should qualify you to be on one of the web shorts shown on iCarly!”

Matt, a job well done for our son’s 7th birthday party. We booked Matt and he agreed to make the trip from New Jersey to Maryland for our special day. We had 30 kids ranging from 4 to 13 years old. They all enjoyed the show as well as the adults. Matt does a great job of connecting with the kids and he was funny and entertaining. What a pleasure to have him perform.

“Hello Matt! I just wanted to thank you so much for another great magic show! You really know how to entertain kids and you are absolutely a true professional. We loved having you at our home again. I was quite impressed how you entertained the kids while setting up. What is so great about your show is that it appeals to all ages, including adults. I’ll check with you after the summer for your availability. She wants the same party she just had. Thank you again so much for squeezing us into your busy schedule. What luck!! You are truly the best!!”

“Matt Cadabra performed a combination of street magic, stage magic and balloon art at our annual picnic for roughly 100 children and adults. The tricks he chose for the 40-something crowd and the gags he shared with the kids, coupled with a great price, leaves me to believe that he is the best value in area entertainment.”
-Walter Witt, Harleysville, Pa
