Born in Evansville a small town on the southern tip of Indiana, Magician and Comedian Matt Grisham was a long way from show business. Matt spent his younger years learning magic to help him cope with his shyness and to help him make friends. Most of his young days as a magician were spent hiding behind a deck of cards, too bashful to talk to people. Once he hit high school things changed, the once shy boy turned into a hilarious outgoing individual. This is when Matt realized magic was what he wanted to do as a career.
After graduating from college magic became a full time job and Matt began touring the country with his unique interactive comedy magic show. Performing hundreds of shows a year to a variety of audience types gave Matt the knowledge to take his show to the next level. He now has his own line of magic props to help teach others how to do magic and comedy. Matt has his own how to DVD, Book, and Magic Kits.
Matt has won 8-National Awards for his entertainment including: Midwest Stage Magician of the Year, Indiana Stand Up Magician of the Year, International Brotherhood of Magicians Performer of the Year, 1st Place Variety Performer, International Brotherhood of Magicians Member of the Year, and more.
His unique blend of sarcastic humor, wit, and mind-blowing magic allow Matt to create unforgettable shows for his audience. Matt’s shows have an interactive quality that most performers ignore. His audience members become part of the show and are brought into the performance. Whether you pick his Stand Up Comedy Magic show or his Hilarious Hypnosis show your audience is sure to have the time of their lives.
