Mat Ricardo is sort of a magician. Sort of a circus performer? Sort of a monologuist. A professional charmer? It’s hard to describe. Certainly he’s the only one of any of those things I know with his own clothing sponsor (Walker Slater).
I met Mat at the Ediburgh Fringe last year, and he was fantastically charming and did an amazing trick with a tablecloth. It seems he’s kicked things up a notch. This is pretty damned impressive.
