"Magicians Mort and Donna, we saw both of you and Matilda on 'The Tonight Show'. You all did a great job and made Alabama proud."
If you have seen Mort and Donna in action, it is easy to understand why their talents as magicians are so much in demand. If you have not experienced their magic, prepare to enter their world . . . a world where the impossible is commonplace; a world extending beyond the boundaries of imagination; a world filled with wonder.
For the majority of their many years as husband and wife, Mort and Donna have been entertaining with their unique style of magic, which has been described as "a class act". Tailored in length and content to meet a client's specific needs, each show is a delightful mix of magic, music, comedy, drama, and audience participation. Highlights include not only Mort's spellbinding presentation of the Chinese Linking Rings, but also delightful magical appearances of two live animals; Velvet, the Mini-Rex rabbit, and Scarlett, the Nankin hen. Of particular interest is the fact that Nankins are extremely rare and on the most-endangered species list of chicken breeds.
In April 2004, Mort and Donna received worldwide recognition when Matilda, an Old English Game hen featured in their magic act, became the first chicken to officially be proclaimed, by Guinness World Records, as World's Oldest Living Chicken. At that time, Matilda was fourteen years old. Along with Matilda's title came guest appearances for her, Mort, and Donna on "The Tonight Show". Matilda lived to be sixteen years old and received numerous other honors, including the Olivia Bearden award from the Greater Birmingham Humane Society, a Commendation from former Alabama Governor Bob Riley, and induction into the Alabama Animal Hall Of Fame.
