Several years ago, I met aspiring magician Matt Grisham. Full of vim, vigor and plenty of tricks up his sleeve, he was a guy who was set on fully living out his dream of entertaining the masses.

Matt started doing magic when he was only six. Now, a new dad, he performs magic and hypnotism shows all over the country; primarily at colleges and corporate events. Here at Townsquare Media, we were lucky enough to have him at one of our employee picnics. His unique brand of comedy and magic had us in stitches!

Now, Matt is taking his magic to a new level. He's set to appear on an episode of USA network’s hit television series Chrisley Knows Best on October 24, 2019 at 8 PM.

I asked Matt what it was like on set.

Filming a national TV show is different. I sort of knew what to expect based on a previous reality show that I was involved in, but Chrisley Knows Best was a whole different experience. The crew were all fantastic, and they made sure everything kept running smoothly. While I was there I had the chance to talk with Todd, Julie, Chase, Savannah, and Nana Faye. They were all friendly and interested in what was going to happen.

During the episode, Matt tries to hypnotize the tough-minded Todd Chrisley into beating his fear of claustrophobia. Does he do it? You'll have to watch to find out.
