Matt Forde, former Labour-advisor turned stand-up comedian, brings his Political Party for a brand new show celebrating politics and its big personalities.

Matt will open each show with topical stand-up about the month in politics before introducing a leading figure in the world of politics, from the likes of George Galloway to UKIP leader Nigel Farage, to discuss and debate their views and beliefs.

An unashamed fan of politics and politicians, Matt Forde worked for the Labour party before embarking on a career in comedy. He is a regular voice on the radio, hosting Extra Time every Friday night on the Sony-Award winning Talksport.

Matt was part of the Russell Howard and Jon Richardson Show on BBC 6 Music and has been a guest on Al Murray’s Radio 2 Show (BBC Radio 2), The News Quiz and The Now Show (both BBC Radio 4). Behind the cameras Matt is a writer on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three), 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Stand-Up For The Week (both Channel 4).

    First prize is two tickets.
    Second prize is four tickets?

  • As President Bartlett said on being told that he had to go to they Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, “Am I being punished for something?”

    A better use of time would be do some phone canvassing for places with elections.

  • Is it a comedy or a tragedy?

  • You are 16 days late -it’s April 17th not April 1st.

  • First two people to apply will each get a ticket… because this is the kind of evening that would mainly appeal to people with no friends.

  • Only just saw this thread. Tsk tsk – I missed it. Please reassure me it was the lead balloon we all prayed for.
