Description

There are wallies everywhere and half of them are running the country. The other half are trying to. Matt Forde (Spitting Image, British Scandal, The Last Leg, The Royal Variety Performance) lashes out right, left and centre. And chucks in some funny voices too. 'Our foremost satirical stand-up... whatever your politics, you'll find excellence here' **** (Sunday Times). 'Possibly the best political comedy show on the Fringe' ***** (Telegraph). 'Forde is as gratifyingly sane as comedians come... smart, funny ideas' **** (Times).

Political humour has long since ceased to be the dominant force in British stand-up, but Forde is a proud defender of its legacy and shows how powerful it remains in the right hands.

The Student (4/5 stars) 46 days ago

If you’re looking for a comedian who responds impeccably well to his audience, humiliates the Conservative Party, the SNP, and Labour through impressions and powerful political facts then look no further. Matt Forde’s witty Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right will have you literally laughing so you don’t cry about the state of the UK.
