"Hyper-energetic...like a heavy work-out in a sort of crazed comedy gym...extraordinary" - Bath Echo


Long-awaited return of Bath Comedy's New Act Of The Year 2011

Matt is now firmly established as one of the UK's most exciting (still young!) comedy performers and presenters, and already has a long string of TV and radio credits behind him.

"High wattage charisma from a talented young comic whose star is on the rise" The Guardian
"Hilarious and Charming" The Mirror


Plastic Jeezus have been making waves up and down the country with their hilarious and often surreal original songs, all delivered in their own unique, straight-faced way, and have performed with Mawaan Rizwan, Clinton Baptiste and Jess Robinson as well as at various festivals and comedy clubs.

Winner: Best Newcomer, Musical Comedy Awards 2021
Listen to them on Bandcamp


Very much a rising star - one of the best new comics on the scene, she's performed alongside Jon Richardson, Angela Barnes and Rosie Jones, and co-hosts a number of popular comedy gigs.

"A smart, clever pocket rocket of a comedian full of punchy quickfire gags coupled with sassy delivery" - Crazy Bird Comedy
