With Matt Rees and Matt Bragg
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.
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 Bragg is a master of delivery, with timing that keeps you hanging on the edge and then the edge again. His dry humour and subtle anecdotes leaves the audience listening intently wanting more of the cool, calm and collected comedian.
The son of television warm up man Bobby Bragg, Matt has been performing stand up all over the country for the last 5 years. With a unique, low energy, deadpan style and meticulously crafted material he has been gaining acclaim from audiences, promoters and comedians alike.
As well as performing at some of the largest clubs in the UK, supporting Harry Hill, Lloyd Griffith (Soccer AM) and Phoenix Night’s Clinton Baptiste on tour, he was also selected for Just The Tonic’s Big Value showcase at the Edinburgh Festival in 2019. This year he was the runner up in the Leicester Mercury’s Comedian of the Year along with becoming a finalist and winner respectively in Manford’s New Act of The Year and Bury Met New Act of The Year.
