Grow Up Green
In this first solo show, Matt considers growing up, feeling young and trying to do both at once. Despite being almost 30, Matt still looks about twelve and wonders if we all get treated like children or is that just him? Are kids these days too grown up or are we all just grown up kids? Some people argue that we’re living in an infantilised culture: from ridiculous adverts and warnings to patronising religious and political leaders. And every weekend the streets are filled with childish behaviour fuelled by the ultimate infantilising tool: booze! With all this in mind, Matt tells a whole load of jokes and stories about childhood, childishness and growing up. These range from tales of family games that spin out of control, being bullied on Facebook and being baffled by film warnings, to accounts of weird hospital visits and embarrassing revelations. It’s an hour of fun that’ll make you laugh, think and cry. But mainly laugh. And probably not cry. Much.
