Matt is a multi-award winning stand-up comedian and one of the most exciting names on the circuit currently rising through the ranks. Having started stand-up in 2009 at 18 years old, Matt became one of the youngest comedians on the circuit and soon made it through to the finals of two national stand-up competitions – the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny and the Chortle Student Comedy Award – as well as coming runner up in the Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year and winning the Newbury Comedy Festival new act competition ‘ You Must be Joking’ – all while still in his teens.
Since then Matt has firmly established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting young performers and presenters. He is the winner of the Bath Comedy Festival New Act of the Year, Leicester Comedy Festival ‘Best New Show’, and a finalist in the Latitude Festival New Act of the Year. Matt has appeared on BBC Radio 2’s ‘Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour’ and his TV credits include co-hosting the Xtra Factor alongside Caroline Flack, a series regular role on Viral Tap (ITV2), Nevermind The Buzzcocks, Celebrity Juice, Sweat The Small Stuff, Big Brothers Bit on the Side, Fake Reaction and many others.
Matt completed his first UK stand up tour earlier this year and is currently writing his follow up show whilst DJing, presenting and compering corporate events.
