Fresh from a successful UK tour, uplifting, anthemic tunes punctuate stories and conversation, shedding light on mental health with self-deprecating honesty and dark humour. Matt takes a good look at how men in particular deal with mental illness as he explores his own experiences with it, with plenty of time to continue the chat afterwards. 'At times this show is like a series of small polished TED talks on mental health, parenting, humanism and love, but these are punctuated by poetic songs loaded with meaning and metaphor' ( 'Imaginative and insightful' (Audience member).
