"Add Balloons to your Magic and add Magic to your Balloons"

Matt Falloon

Dai Vernon said that the best way to succeed in magic was to take one thing and do it better than anyone else. One man who has done that is Sydney's own Matt Falloon. Matt began his magic career more than 15 years ago on school work experience at Taylor's Magic Shop! He soon began working professionally around Sydney for family audiences, and one day struck the realisation that he was selling the same magic as everyone else. Matt took on balloons as his chosen discipline and is now considered one of the top 5 balloon modellers in the world! 

And if you think its all about twisting you'd be wrong. Matt combines comedy, magic, balloons and a quick wit to create a completely unique style of family entertainment.  

Well-made balloons are a giveaway that doesn’t cost you the world. They are unique and personal, and actually add colour and fun to your routines. We don't mean crappy dogs that look like an industrial accident in a sausage factory, we're talking about uniquely crafted pieces of entertaining art that can genuinely complement your show. Matt will show you how to relaunch these simple ideas that you know and love into practical, usable effects, gags and bits of business that really work! And you know what? It's not difficult!

Still not convinced? Even if you don't want to make balloons, come along and be entertained by a world class entertainer who has won......

The Gentleman Magician - A Magical Soirée

Inspired by the intimate and sophisticated performances of the great society magicians, Bruce Glen will present a new weekly parlour show within one of the city’s most beautiful historic buildings, the Royal Automobile Club. Glen’s style is ‘storytelling magic for adults but not necessarily grown-ups’ and, at his Magical Soirées, the stories will be about Sydney and some of its characters.
Drinks and canapés upon arrival; a unique Sydney experience not to be missed.

Not for nothing is Australian magician Bruce Glen’s entertaining show  called The Gentleman Magician. Right from the start, you feel welcomed and put at ease by his genial, affable presence, impeccable manners and easy charm. He even chooses one audience member as a ˜guest of honour” for special treatment. It’s almost like going to visit a favourite uncle who’s going to capture your imagination with tall stories and clever illusions.”
