Introduction: My name is Matthew Redlaw and I am a Deception Artist. The word magic infers the occult, and I freely admit that nothing I do involves magic. Instead I use your five senses against you to make it appear as if I have a sixth. In essence, I am an exceptionally gifted liar who uses comedy and misdirection to perform the impossible and leave your guests with an amazing experience.
Some background information about me. I have been performing my art for over 30 years, to include while I served in the Army. In fact, during one of my deployments to Afghanistan it became a normal part of my weekly routine. At least 2-3 times a week I would perform at local hospitals, orphanages, and schools. It was an amazing experience. Being able to perform and connect with people from an entirely different culture and without the aid of common language (and most of the times without an interpreter) was a task that truly enriched my skill set. Due to my experiences in the military, I can say that my shows are tinged with a sarcastic wit and flow, which plays great with audiences young and old.
My art can be adapted to any situation or environment. Contact me about your specific needs.
