Matt Rees

A properly original comedy mind.

The Guardian

Quite brilliant. I’d love to see more of this comic.

Kate Copstick, The Scotsman

Rees can tell a story or create a world in a sentence.

The Skinny

Multi-award-winning Welsh comedian Matt Rees has generated a huge buzz on the circuit over the past few years with his unique brand of well-crafted gags and acerbic delivery earning him high praise from audiences and critics alike.

As well as starring in BBC3’s This Country and BBC’s Edinburgh Fringe Highlights Matt has also recently recorded an episode of BBC2’s Stand Up at BBC Wales, Amazon’s Audible Presents and Stand Up For BBC Radio Wales.

Matt also made his hotly anticipated debut solo show at The Edinburgh Fringe in 2018 at The Pleasance with Happy Hour, a humorous approach to his alcoholism and his every day life.

The rising star has won a whole host of awards including Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, Leicester Square Comedian of The Year, Welsh Unsigned Act of The Year and Loaded LAFTAs as well as being nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer.

Matt performs at all the top UK clubs and has also performed at many prestigious comedy/music festivals such as Latitude, Reading, Leeds, Green Man and the fantastically off-beat Welsh festival Machynlleth Comedy Fest.

Matt has provided tour support for the likes of Joe Lycett, John Robins, Elis James, Patrick Kielty and Tig Notaro.
