"AN ASSURED PRESENCE"
(and some patients)
“ Matt is a doctor - this has made his parents very proud. He’s also a stand-up comedian, this has made his parents very confused. They have relaxed a bit, now he performs in clubs they have actually heard of – including the Comedy Store, Backyard and Covent Garden.
He sometimes meets them half way, and performs science comedy as part of the Science Showoff Talent Factory, in venues including the Science Museum.
Back when he was younger and still trying to be cool, he was a DJ – playing in places including the Secret Garden party, Ministry of Sound and Egg London. 2 of his productions were broadcast on XFM (now Radio X). He now brings these skills to comedy – with the show “Mixtape, a comedy block party”. This mixed bill show enjoyed a successful run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe and he returned to Edinburgh 2019 with HLM's Ania Magliano.
In 2018 he was a finalist in the Leicester Square New Comedian and in 2019 he was a finalist in the Hackney Empire NATYS. He has previously been a semi-finalist in the BBC New Comedy Award, Amused Moose New Comic Award and So You Think You Are Funny.
