He’s worked in a fish factory, he’s trained as a boxer and he has worked as a ghost writer for some of Britain’s most notorious gangsters. Among his fellow comics Matt Price is known for having some of the most extraordinary and outrageous stories drawn from the wilder side of life. And yet this self effacing Cornish born comic brings real warmth and heart to his tales - as well as finding some audacious laughs in the most unexpected places. Price’s easy going charm has made him a favourite on the UK and International circuit and he has the skill to win over the toughest audiences.
His critically acclaimed Edinburgh shows see Matt weaving his own amazing true tales into an astonishing and very funny hour. The Maryhill Dinosaur - his 2014 show - was ostensibly about a mentally ill man who believed he was a dinosaur - but built into a moving and heartfelt story about what it takes to be a man - and why sometimes a lack of confidence can be an advantage in life. Turkeygate - performed in Edinburgh in 2013 recounted the tale of a disastrous international booking - which ended with Price and a fellow comic in a hilarious but terrifying keystone cops type chase with international gangsters.
He is also the co creator of Natural Born Storytellers – a very popular storytelling night at the Camden Comedy Club (Camden Head) in Camden.
Despite the occasional misadventure on his travels Price continues to tour internationally and has worked in Eastern and Central Europe, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, South East Asia, Turkey and Scandanavia. He is a skilled and in demand compere at weekend clubs such as Glee and Komedia and his versatility has made him a popular choice as a National tour support - for acts including Stephen K Amos and Norman Lovett. He is currently preparing for an Australian tour in 2015 in which he plans to develop the theme of masculinity and self assertion into a show specifically created for an antipodean audience and called, “A British Bloke's Guide to Being a Man.”
Price doesn’t skimp on the laughs. And when the laughs do come, they tend to be big, explosive ones, since they burst naturally from these characters. Whether you lack of assertiveness or not, you’ll find it hard to say ‘no’ to Price’s unaffected charm. Steve Bennett, Chortle, review of The Maryhill Dinosaur
"The jewel in the crown of the evening was headline act Matt Price. …straight from the heart – filled with bonhomie, an almost unnoticeable wanderlust and extraordinary candidness, underscored by a truly incisive comic brain." South Wales Echo
