I am writing this testimonial four weeks later and our guest cannot stop raving about how much they enjoyed the show. The highlight of our night was Mark escaping from the straitjacket. This is definitely something you cannot miss! We also enjoyed the intimate part of the evening where Mark met with our guests and amazed them up close at their tables. We are delighted to have worked with Mark and look forward to finding ways to incorporate him into future gala nights.”
Response from Mark Correia - Toronto's Comedy Magician:
Thank you Latoya!
Mark joined us for my husband's 50th birthday party. We had 50 guests, Scotch and Cigar themed with a combination of seating and cruiser tables. From the moment Mark arrived he fit right in and was an expert at adapting to the different groups of people, going with the flow of the party and was very comfortable.
Most importantly, Mark's talent is amazing. A true entertainer and there was nothing more rewarding than to have my guests coming up to tell me how much they enjoyed having Mark a part of the evening. He amazed, stumped and had them totally engaged in his performance.
I would hire Mark again for any size of gathering from large, corporate event to smaller special occasions. Professional, great energy and fun.

Audience participation and unforgettable moments.
Always appropriate and hilarious!
Mark has a huge arsenal to draw from when entertaining a crowd—leading to a show audiences can’t get enough of. Using lots of audience involvement, along with comedy, mime, magic and mind-reading, Mark’s show is an entirely unique experience. Every moment is a surprise.
Mark’s show is polished, running forty-five minutes to an hour. Full of original material, he can add elements like audience games, his famous straitjacket escape, etc. to make sure you get exactly what you’d like. (He'll like it too).
Mark has experience with large outdoor festivals, corporate events, original theatre shows, or family entertainment. He has a unique brand of engaging roaming magic, or onstage magic, so no matter what the event he is adaptable and most definitely hilarious.
Mark Correia is a world renowned comedian, magician, and world record holder with over seventeen years of experience. After specializing in comedy and drama at the prestigious National Theatre School of Canada he began making a name for himself across the globe.
Mark has performed all over Canada and the United States as well as internationally, going as far as Qatar, France, Singapore, and China. He has headlined the illustrious comedy club "Caroline's on Broadway" in the heart of New York City's Times Square, as well as frequenting other off-broadway theatres as comedian and magician.

Mark is also the brains and talent behind Escaping Parkinson’s—a stunt supported by The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, and Michael J. Fox himself—raising over $15,000 in just fourteen days. For two weeks Mark lived strapped inside a straitjacket without breaks. On the fourteenth day he escaped on live television. He garnered international attention with this stunt, and set a world record for “Longest Amount of Time Wearing a Straitjacket”.
The story of Escaping Parkinson's was then been presented as a TEDx talk delivered by Mark. It is the first TED talk to be delivered in a straitjacket.
Mark is also co-owner of the production company Noodle Boys. Founded in 2015, Noodle Boys gained viral status within a year of inception with their unique sketch comedies and short films. They are currently working with CBC Comedy to create more original sketch content.

Additional Booking Notes
If onstage, Mark usually requires a source of power for his microphone. He usually uses music in his act. If music is unavailable he can certainly perform a cappella.
If he is performing close up magic he needs nothing but his hands and a willing audience.
