"Hey, America! You can keep your super-slick, alpha male satirists with suspiciously black hair. We’ve got Matt Forde… his Donald Trump impersonation is easily better and funnier than Alec Baldwin’s on Saturday Night Live… high-quality, intelligent satire!"
"Our foremost satirical stand-up..whatever your politics, you’ll find excellence here."
Matt is one of the country’s most in-demand satirists.
He has hosted four series of Unspun with Matt Forde on Dave, receiving several nominations at the Broadcast Digital Awards, and has numerous other broadcast credits including Have I Got News For You (BBC One), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV), Mock The Week (BBC Two), 8 out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Hypothetical (Dave) Rory Bremner’s Coalition Report and Rory Bremner’s Election Report (BBC Two), Question Time (BBC One), This Week (BBC One), Newsnight (BBC Two) and Daily Politics (BBC Two). Matt currently presents Absolute Radio’s weekly Rock n Roll Football Show.
In 2019 alone, Matt hosted the Alternative News Desk for Channel 4’s election night coverage, chaired the One Nation Conservative leadership hustings and debated Britain’s withdrawal from the EU with Tony Blair for the Institute of Global Change.
In his Political Party podcast, he interviewed guests ranging from Nicola Sturgeon, David Blunkett, Momentum’s Jon Lansman, Jo Swinson, George Osborne, Rory Stewart and Sadiq Khan to name but a few. The Political Party has enjoyed a sold-out monthly residency at Westminster’s The Other Palace for nearly six years, and has amassed over 1 million downloads on Soundcloud, received a 2018 Best Comedy Podcast nomination from the British Podcast Awards, hit the top spot of the iTunes comedy chart, and was nominated for the Internet Award at the Chortle Awards.
