Thank you for visiting my page.
My name is Eugene Matthias, and I was trained in 2017 as a funeral celebrant by The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants.
As a child, I loved magic - my first job was with Rank Xerox, but it did not take me long to realise my future lay in entertainment. I trained and became a full-time professional comedy magician. Then took a scriptwriting course and have had an incredible 20-year career as a comedy magician and scriptwriter.
At the same time, I was getting booking as a Master of Ceremony and was encouraged to train as a corporate Toastmaster which I did with The Executive Guild of Toastmasters.
My proudest moments: -
My previous career - Have a watch
Let me bring a smile to your face
Family charity show - lasts 2 minutes
Fun, Laughter & Mayhem
I retired from showbusiness in 2017 and, not being one to do nothing, trained as a funeral celebrant.
At the time, I did not realise how my experience as a professional entertainer and scriptwriter would greatly help me in my new career.
I found: -
If families want, I will include religion, prayers, reading and passages from the bible into my services.
I am not trained as a humanist celebrant, but FD's do ask to conduct humanist services.
