Fight for your right to (political) party | Matt Forde
FEES: Please Inquire
A Labour-advisor turned stand up; Matt Forde is not your typical political comic. Passionate, opinionated and excitable, he loves football as much as the Prime Minister's Questions, and combines ‘spot-on impressions, up-to-the-minute-observations’ (Mail on Sunday), and a unique outlook on politics with a genuine love of Westminster’s big personalities.
Matt’s live show, The Political Party, has been a sell-out during its monthly residency at Westminster’s St. James Theatre. Matt has brought Parliament to life with his stand-up and debate with some of the Government’s most notorious figures, including Alastair Campbell, Nigel Farage, Alan Johnson, Jack Straw, George Galloway, Matthew Parris, Stella Creasy, Charles Clarke, and Michael Portillo. A brand new show, Matt Forde’s Sports Party, was recently announced and will see Matt interview some of the most unique voices in sport in an informal and intimate environment.
Matt Forde is a frequent guest on current affairs shows. He has been a panelist on Have I Got News For You (BBC One) and 8 Out of 10 Cats, a sofa guest on This Week (BBC One), has appeared on Newsnight (BBC Two), Daily Politics (BBC One), and has performed stand-up and written for Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three). Other writing credits include 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and The Last Leg (Channel 4). Matt can be heard on the radio on The Now Show, The News Quiz (both BBC Radio 4), and on his own weekly show on talkSPORT. Matt has a number of scripted projects in development.
Matt has just performed his fourth solo show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the critically-acclaimed, sold out 24 Hour Political Party People.
