CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).

Cornish-born, Cardiff-based Matt Price is officially the UK's first New Deal comedian. Having been on the dole for two years, he applied for the financial support of the Governmentâs New Deal scheme to help him launch his stand-up career - and was accepted. Before comedy, he also had a short career in boxing, and wrote a book on the subject.
Friendly Cornish Giant Matt Price was going out with a woman. The only problem, is that she wasn't going out with him, so Matt spent a year or of his life looking like the world's worst stalker. The experience triggered a memory from his childhood. Find out why he pretended to like Death Metal, why he loves bad performance poetry and how a five foot one Glaswegian woman saved his life.
Matt Price is rapidly developing a style of his own, riding 3 comedy horses at the same time: affable compere, stand-up comedian and storyteller. He is resident compere at Resurrected at O'Neill’s in Cardiff, the Flavel Arts Centre in Dartmouth and the Swansea Grand. He is comfortable on stage, is able to adapt to his audience, does the occasional bad joke and loves telling a good yarn.Performer Sarah Bennetto (MC).
