Opening Comedian –Matt Stellingwerf
Matt utterly stole the show on Saturday! He’s an outstanding act'
Comedy Cafe, London
A Hamilton-born and Wanganui-raised farmer's son from New Zealand, Matt trained as a criminologist, he is also an award-winning bar fly, a genuinely lovely guy, and a man full of contradictions. He expertly brings these contradictions to the stage, with his typical low-key style and confidence, finding the humour in topics as diverse as love, mental illness, sex, drugs, and a crazy interview he once conducted with a serial killer on Death Row…When this erudite satire-superstar gets onto the stage, the acceleration from zero to a hundred jokes is measured in seconds. Matt Stellingwerf's deftly crafted jokes display a man full of seriously good comedic talent. Stellingwerf is a man to watch out for. Note this man's name. Go see him raise the comedy bar. He is clearly destined for big things, so that in the future when you see him and his name on TV, you can boast that you saw him in person.
