The secret to being a great magician lies not only in what you do, but in how you do it, and Matthew James does it very well. Guests are always amazed with his tricks, that’s a given, but even more importantly, James is an entertainer in every sense of the word. Engaging and lively, James has been called one of “America’s Top Magicians” and has appeared on Nickelodeon.
