Matt was great. The kids and parents enjoyed his magic. He kept them engaged throughout the show. I would highly recommend.Dec 12, 2017VerifiedMatthew T.'s reply
Thank your Marc! I had a great time. What an incredible audience and family.
"Seriously, the best entertainer I've seen at a kids party", just what all the parents said to me after the party I threw for my 1 year old! The kids, parents and waiters were all entertained. Bonkerz is highly professional and you can tell he has a passion for his craft! I enjoyed working with him and loved even more that he made our event truly special!Apr 17, 2017VerifiedMatthew T.'s reply
Thank you Mel! My job is easy when performing for such a fantastic audience. I really appreciate the kindness your family showed me. Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your child's special day and I hope to entertain for your family again in the future.

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with a new customer I typically assess their event needs by getting to know some details about their event and audience. After we determine what they are looking for and we want to move forward, I would send them a contract and ask for a partial deposit. Once a deposit is received the performance is a go!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been to several acting schools and have taken improvisation classes. But the training I am most proud of is my undergraduate and masters degrees in education. I have been a NYC public school teacher for 10 years. It is my specialty working with young people and I don't see myself doing anything else.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started entertaining when I was 14 years old. I worked in a neighborhood novelty shop/magic store that booked out professional entertainment. It was only a matter of time that I started getting booked out as a clown, magician, and costumed character. I loved it! It was fun and I made money from it; a dream come true!
