Matt The Knife


Seeing a performance by "Matt The Knife" is like none other! His unique talents have garnered him multiple awards and even 12 "Guinness World Records" (that's more than any magician EVER)! But his show is more than pure amazement and highly entertaining... it's also laugh out loud funny!


"Matt The Knife" is an entertainer of the highest order... professional magician, sideshow performer, lecturer, writer, as well as consultant. His start came in the back of some rather seedy gaming establishments along with a colorful grifting background. But from these offbeat beginnings he's since been led on to become one of the world's leading entertainers!

This silver tongued, self-made trickster honed his skills with a career that's whisked him around the globe, plastered him all over television, given him final four nominations TWICE for Novelty Entertainer of the Year and garnered him a total of 12 Guinness World Records(tm)... that's right- TWELVE!

Some of his accolades include numerous awards, currently retaining a multitude of world records, being written up in the likes of a plethora print media which including: “The New York Post”, “The Times”, “ESPN Magazine”, “Sirius Satellite Radio”, The “Philadelphia City Paper”, "PLAY Magazine", The "METRO" Paper, "Road King Magazine", “Escape Masters Magazine”, “Amusement Business Magazine”, and even "The Wall Street Journal"; as well as being seen on "The Discovery Channel", "NBC", "Ripley's Believe It or Not!", "CNN", "The History Channel", "Adult Swim" on "The Cartoon Network", "Guinness World Records", "CCTV" (China), "Rai Tre" (Italy) and "The BBC" (United Kingdom).

This "Aliquis in Omnibus" (jack-of-all-trades) is at home whether he's performing in the streets of New York and Boston or in the grand theaters of Paris and London. See why MTK is self proclaimed "purveyor of artful dodges, practiced deceptions, and masterful conjurations." A performance by him is guaranteed to demonstrate just why he's The "Cutting Edge" of Entertainment!
