"I recently had a Teambuilding event with my Operations group and was a bit skeptical at first as to whether having a magician would "work" as an introduction to our ability to tackle the impossible.

He was punctual, prepared, fun, engaging, professional and the group loved his act. I would highly recommend Matt!" -Ward Naylor, i-Health
"Matt Roberts is an incredibly engaging Magician and Comedian. His illusions are top notch. His comedy is equally impressive and I would not recommend having a mouthful of water while he is telling a joke because you could end up spraying it all over the audience in front of you, as I did when I was watching his show. Matt is a talented professional entertainer and is a pleasure to work with, I highly recommend his show for any occasion." - Brian Hornby, Program Officer, Office Of Cultural Affairs, City of New Haven, CT
