"With a calm and reassuring stage presence, blisteringly sharp and hilariously funny jokes, Matt Bragg is a comedic force to be reckoned with, a refreshingly different performer." - Scott Bennett (Rob Brydon Tour Support). "Thoroughly enjoyable" - Reginald D Hunter "He's very good. Nice style, great jokes" - Justin Moorhouse "Matt is a master of delivery, with timing that keeps you hanging on the edge and then the edge again... I would highly recommend booking as your night would be in a solid pair of hands, one not just for the future but for now." - The Comedy Cow Plus Roger Monkhouse (MC) is one of the regular writers on Channel 4's hugely popular comedy panel show '8 Out of 10 Cats.' He is responsible for scripting up-to-the-minute topical gags every week for the show which features Jimmy Carr alongside team captains Dave Spikey and Sean Lock. Other television credits include appearances on 'The Comedy Store' and 'The World Stands Up', (both Paramount), 'My God I'm My Dad' (Bravo) and 'Street Cred Sudoku' (UKG2). Nevertheless, he remains a clear favourite of comedy insiders and is probably comedy's best kept secret: In other words, in our view and the view of many others, he is one of the best (possibly THE best) comedian who's not famous yet! A consummate stand-up who exerts a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, his trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit. Supremely confident, with audience banter down to an art form, he's happy to improvise freely but has no shortage of first class material in his armoury. Roger is widely regarded as a master of observational comedy with routines that are universally and unfailingly hysterical.
