"When it comes to planning a swanky soiree for family and friends, you’re the hostess with the mostess. The most anxiety, that is. Ensure guests leave singing your praises by inviting mentalist, Matthew Cooper.
He’ll come as a debonair mystery guest and dazzle partygoers with illusions of the mind. We’re not just talking cards tricks; Cooper engages small groups with [mentalism] like telepathy, thought reading, and moving objects. His presence adds an air of intrigue and generally classes up the joint (his dashing looks don’t hurt either).
Cooper works best with lesser crowds (twenty to 100 people), so he has ample time to mingle, guessing pin numbers and stopping watches. An appearance costs a pretty penny, so think truly special events (your parents’ 50th anniversary) or company shindigs. But you can’t put a price on making your anxiety disappear."
"I hired Matthew to perform at a holiday bash for my team & our clients, and he was the absolute highlight of the party. He was on time, personable, an absolute expert, and stunned the crowd. He made his way through the party of 70 people seamlessly, spending time with each group and performing outstanding mind-reading. I'd recommend Matthew to perform at any event."
“Matthew Cooper is by far one of the most genuine professionals I've ever worked with. In my Event business, when a Magician or Mentalist is brought forth, I've had many experiences less than satisfying. But my faith has been restored with Matthew Cooper. He is absolutely the most charismatic entertainer yet also the most humble of personalities. I often times felt Matthew was simply a very talented guest at an event who simply comes to life with close-up mind-tricks that have kept my guests riveted for hours. I Highly recommend Matthew Cooper for your next event of any size! There is no better or truer professional around!!”
"We have a very eclectic guest list at our events made up of film, fashion, music, business and art stars and it’s always a challenge to find interesting, entertaining and sophisticated artists who can keep all these people intrigued and entertained. I am really thrilled we found him. Our guests were astounded by what he did! I mean blown away, truly. I cant thank him enough for being part of it, he added a really interesting twist to the atmosphere and everyone has been raving non-stop. The event was a huge success and we can’t imagine ever doing it without him now. Can’t wait for the next time -- I better book him now. I truly can’t thank him enough, amazing, mind-bendingly blowing and brilliant."
“I met Matthew Cooper when he was working at an event I was attending and was blown away! He blended in seamlessly with the crowd. He was personable, friendly, forward and super like-able. More then that, his talents are top notch. I've hired him to work at events I've thrown for my clients in the capacity of an Account Manager at Google, and every client who's met him has given me great compliments."
Michael Silberberg, Google
To whom it may concern, I recently retained Matt to entertain a very high power group of international CEO's in Las Vegas. Matt completely mesmerized my group with his work and they all thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Matt is very charming and has an easy way about him that makes people warm up to him quickly. I would not hesitate to engage Matt for any intimate function and I think he really makes the evening very special and memorable.
Roland "Rollie" Sturm, Chief Executive Organization
I met Matthew Cooper at a networking event several months ago. He casually came up to me and told me he was a Mentalist. I was fascinated with it and instantly had him show me some of his skills. I was so impressed that I hired Matt to be the entertainment at my company's holiday party.
We didn't tell anyone he was coming, he just appeared to be another guest. Within minutes, there was a line of people waiting their turn to have him read their minds or tell them the name of their first love. Anything from guessing a number in your head to telling you the passcode on your cell phone -- It was such a hit! Absolutely the highlight of the party, in fact, so many of my guests were so blown away by what they were told, that they were still talking about it weeks later.
I would 100% recommend hiring Matt Cooper for your event or to entertain your group. I don't know how he does it, but the things he can tell your guests about themselves will leave them speechless. I received at least half a dozen emails complimenting his performance. I would absolutely encourage you to book Matt Cooper!
Jennifer Kelley, NYSA
"I had the pleasure of working with Matthew for my mother's 70th Birthday. I was looking for a unique angle to entertain guests at the birthday party during the cocktail hour and reception and came across the Mentalist. And he amazed EVERY one of my guests! When I first reached out to him, we spoke about the event and about the time that I needed him there. I had so many performers and many moving parts to organize during the party, but Matthew actually helped me set up other parts of the party before he was even supposed to begin! It was such a pleasure working with Matthew because he is punctual and he makes sure that he and the organizer are on the same page before the event begins.
At the event itself, he blended in so smoothly with the guests. He amazed EVERYONE and worked the room effortlessly. From magic and mentalism to even using props located in the room (there was no way he knew that these objects would be there beforehand), he turned everything into an opportunity to amaze. And my guests are STILL speaking about him to this day.
Matthew is the consummate professional and an ultimate performer who should be included on anyone's shortlist for an event. I will certainly be working with him again, and again, and again because his act is truly amazing. He goes above and beyond what is expected and does tricks that I've never seen before.Out of 5 stars, I give Matthew a strong 10 because he is that good. Thank you once again Matthew!"
Kenneth S. (Private Party at the Park Lane Hotel)
"Matthew presented to our staff. I was amazed at what he could do. If I had not experienced it with my own eyes I never would have believed it. He is personable, charming and engaging I am very impressed with his skills and will be looking for ways to include him in upcoming corporate events."
John Cassese, VP at PineRock
"Matthew Cooper performed Close-Up mind-reading at a recent singles party that I hosted for 150 young men and women in NYC. Cooper is masterful at engaging groups of people; without using flashy tricks or costumes, he subtly and quickly draws together a captivated audience and holds their rapt attention for the length of his work. Matthew Cooper's presence added delight and surprise to my event. I highly recommend him!!!"
Amanda Hofman, Urban Girl Squad
"I own and operate an event and lifestyle brand called The Executive Lounge. With the brand we host several social and business gatherings for professional people ages 25-45. Matthew Cooper has been a big part of our programming, which has assisted with keeping our attending guests engaged, entertained and coming back. When I have the chance to work with him again, I will not pass it up. That’s a hint for anyone reading this!!!"
Jimmy Foster, CEO Whispering Giants
“Matthew Cooper is phenomenal!! I will always remember the first time we met and how skeptical I was. It was a dark and elegant bar with an almost invisible entrance. Cooper was immediately disarming and engaging. He is so handsome and his voice is so, just, perfect, it's hard to know what to say or do, you simply let him do what he does. Within moments my business partner and I knew we had to hire him. From that moment on every time we heard a delighted yelp and roar of laughter and applause coming from some corner of our event we could be sure that it was Cooper, mystifying and delighting our guests. If you need some one to do what Cooper does, HIRE HIM!!! He truly is the best.”
Nicholas Adamski, The Poetry Society of New York
"I'm an event coordinator and have used Matthew Cooper numerous times with great reviews! He’s asked for by name when my clients return the following year. Cooper is always professional and truly engaged with his audience, leaving everyone in disbelief of what they witnessed up close and personal. I will call on him for future events, and certainly recommend him when given the opportunity."
Liz Cray, Event Coordinator
"Matthew Cooper single handedly baffled and captivated every group at a MED3000 network meeting in Las Vegas. It was very entertaining to watch him work the crowd, and to see the smiles on my clients faces. Sleight of hand, sleight of mind or sheer 'Cooper', he did a fabulous job. My first recommendation and first call!"
Bill Holley, Encore Productions
"First and foremost, Matthew Cooper was a pleasure to work with and very professional. He performed remarkable and compelling magic for the guests of our roof top party in New York; and it was all done close up which made it so much more incredible! He was an absolute treat and we can't wait to have him back for our next event!"
Mary C Tunes, WMC Creative
"Brilliant! Words cannot thank you enough for being so kind and generous in donating your service to the annual Friendraiser Gala, for Friends of the Children NY. Guests throughout the night were wowed by your talents and I've already received numerous inquiries for your contact information. You truly helped enhance the event along with the gaming & entertainment, to make the theme become a reality into a “Magical Night”. You're a true professional, and I look forward to working with you on future events!"
Rena Fischler, Type Social
“Matthew Cooper is a sleight-of-mind genius!"
Stephanie Berger, Poetry Society of New York
"I have worked with Matthew Cooper on several occasions... I have never come across a more professional, motivated, and creative individual. He takes the utmost care in making sure every part of his presentation, both professional and personal, is of the highest quality. He is genuinely a pleasure to work and interact with, and he is constantly looking for ways to improve client and colleague relations. I couldn't recommend him highly enough."
Alex Darke, Gilded Cinema
"Mr. Cooper was not only a consumate Pro, amazing Magician, and stellar Entertainer, but was one of the major reasons for our film-project GALA's ultimate SUCCESS - we thank you wholeheartedly, Matthew."
Andrea Ocampo, ASAOPE Independent FilmWork
"Matthew Cooper performed at a recent event that I hosted called The Love Muffin Project. Our guests were stunned and amazed! Everyone loved him and spoke of how charming and friendly he was. He made his way around the room and blended right in to every group he worked with. Working with him was a joy, and I will definitely invite him back to entertain our guests at our next event."
“Matthew is in a class by himself. He is creative and professional, while executing his work with total integrity. I have recommended Matthew's services in the past and will continue to do so. He give 100%+. If only he could duplicate himself... Maybe he can!”
Linda Viviane Lester, Writer
"Matthew is a wonderfully gifted fellow and has been a delight to work with every time. Top class and quite amazing. It is always great to watch him work with people and see their brain melt. I am sure he'll have a great career!"
Matt Hutchinson, Tribeca Ball
"I've had the good fortune to work with Matthew at a variety of events in New York. Matthew is a superb close-up musician, gifted and personable mentalist/mind-reader, and a warm, charming and persuasive entertainer. He brings style, panache and good humor to each activity in which he's involved. He's a generous performer with audience and colleagues alike. You would do well to engage Matthew in his capacities as magician and mind-reader; the audience will love him, and as a professional he won't disappoint."
Mark Zegans, Creative Development
"Aside from being extremely professional and personable, Cooper is a great addition to any social setting because he engages people in an unexpected way. People are always “wowed” after a session with him. I've hired him for my organization's annual fundraiser gala and for my friend’s birthday party, and he was indispensable to both – ensuring that guests are entertained and intrigued. I highly recommend him for any upscale social function."
Jessica Faith, Friends of the Children
"The best part of planning my sister's birthday party was making the choice to hire Mentalist Matthew Cooper! He was extremely professional, unbelievably talented and so nice that he put all the guests at ease. His talent convinced even the biggest skeptics! I would highly recommend him and will definitely consider hiring him again!"
Christine M. (50th Birthday)
"My husband and I wanted to entertain our guests during our wedding cocktail hour and I was lucky enough to come across Matthew Cooper. My guests were left speechless.
Matt was so polite and well spoken that most guests thought he was part of my wedding. Some of my friends where even scared to talk to him because of how spot on he was with mind reading! Not only is Matthew talented, he is smart, sweet, and not to bad to look at either :) We will be booking Matthew this winter for our holiday party. We hope you all have the chance to book him as well!"
Leah M. (Wedding)
"Cooper dazzled the hell out of my guests at the after party for my film's TriBeCa Film Festival premier! Truly a master of his craft - Exactly what I needed for such an important event. I'm very picky when it comes to performers, but Matthew really went over and above!"
Ronni Thomas, Tribeca Film Festival *After Party
"I met Matthew at an event in Manhattan. Like most people, I was fairly confident that I'd know how a trick was done. When it came to Matthew's performance, I could not have been more wrong. Without giving anything away, I was stunned - and till this day, I don't really know how he did it. It's also worth pointing out that Matthew was the life of the party. There was no monotonous routine being worked to death, just great conversation with an invitation to learn more about what he does and be entertained."
Joe Violette, IKA Collective
"Matt was a huge crowd-pleaser at our recent event. He kept the group engaged the entire time he was with us. We're already trying to fit him into our next event!"
Kelly Kaelin, Chief Executives Organization
"I first saw Matt perform at a cocktail party, and was amazed with his abilities. So impressed, I hired him a few weeks later to do a show for a corporate event. Again, he blew everyone away with his performance. It's the type of thing the office was buzzing about for days! Working with Matt to book him for the event was so easy -- he was communicative and professional, showed up when he was supposed to, did exactly what we hired him to do. Can't wait to find a reason to hire him again!"
