Norton Cricket Section Christmas Comedy Night
Sunday 10th December
MC Matt Reid returns for a christmas special with some hilarious friends ...
In 2000, Matt was offered a gig while taking part in a sketch-writing workshop. One gig lead to three, and from there it snowballed, leading to a stand up career that’s taken him around the world, initially as part of a duo and later as a solo act.
His everyman style and lightening retorts have made him a comedian’s favourite, and earned him several accolades.
Matt was a finalist in the Daily Telegraph Award in 2002 alongside Mark Watson and Gary Delaney. He has reached the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedy Awards and the So You Think You're Funny awards. He was also a finalist in the industry-selected Leicester New Act of the Year award.
Matt is a resident compère at no fewer than 15 gigs nationwide. One of the finest compères in the business, he has supported the likes of Jim Jefferies and the One Man Star Wars Trilogy. He’s appeared at festivals such as Bestival, Sonisphere, Leeds, Reading and Altitude, alongside Tim Minchin, Sean Lock and Frankie Boyle. He has also featured on the Comedy Store Presents on Comedy Central.
In Edinburgh in 2006, he appeared in the Big Value line up with Sarah Millican, then took his own debut show Stalked up to the festival, which won rave reviews.
Raymond & Mr Timpkins
A comedy twosome with over two decades of mucking about behind them, we have been everywhere from New Zealand to The Falklands and Exeter to Edinburgh with many a stop in between.
In late 2019 we won the UK Comedy Awards, Comedian of the Year award! Yes! Us! It was voted for by our colleagues in comedy so means a lot. Thanks you big arseholes. Love you.
We've played the lowliest pub back room to the London Palladium and had a month in Edinburgh courtesy of the quite fabulous Brett Vincent at Get Comedy with a resulting 5 star review from The Scotsman! I know. Posh right? Plus a load of other lovely reviews that we're far too modest to talk about...
