Matt Richardson

Having started in stand-up in 2009 at the age of 18, Matt Richardson became one of the youngest comedians on the circuit, and he has held on to that success over a decade later.

He made it to two national stand-up competitions – the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny and the Chortle Student Comedy Award – as well as finishing runner-up in the Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year, and winning the Newbury and Bath Comedy Festival competitions, all before he was 20.

He quickly established himself on the comedy circuit and now hosts and stars on popular TV shows and provides comedy sets and after-dinner speeches for private and corporate clients.

I speak on behalf of Thinkbox when I say that we were so happy with Matt, he really understood the brief, was professional and friendly and great with the audience.

Matt was absolutely fantastic and did such a great job at managing to keep it upbeat and entertaining even though we had no live audience. Was a pleasure to work with and would definitely use him again to host a live ceremony.
Jamie O’Neill, Royal Television Society

It means a great deal to the apprentices to have somebody young that they can relate to, such as Matt, involved as it really demonstrates the importance of their training and adds credibility to the entire event. The feedback we received on the night was extremely positive. Thank you especially for delivering our awards ceremony and keeping the mood light with your set.
SLPTG Apprentice Awards Dinner

A whirling ball of talent, energy and intelligent observational comedy who spoke with great skill and affection of his family and his experiences. He comes across as a man who could read the phonebook and make it funny, but instead of painting by numbers his comedy is sharp, strong and very impressive.
