"Comic fans are in for a treat" - Canterbury Times
Matt started Stand-up comedy when he was 19 years old in a vegetarian restaurant. He accidentally swore profusely to a small boy to close his first 5 minutes. The rest of his career is summed up with that metaphor. Matt has been performing comedy for a long-time and it is his passion.
Matt is currently doing his second hour long show called: 100 Acts Of Morality. It's a show about trying to become the most moral person ever and trying to save my own life in 2016. In 2017 & 2018 he did his Thirds show A HOSS WITH NO NAME around the UK at many fringe festivals and ended up taking a 30 min version of it at Edinburgh fringe with Lovell’s Labour’s Hoss’ed.
In 2019, Matt is taking HERE COMES YOUR MAN, his 4th Hour (but his debut Edinburgh Fringe show) all around the UK.
