The Act

Matt is an actor, writer and comedian. He has performed as an actor and comic all over the world from Tokyo to New York, via Edinburgh, Glastonbury and the Alps, as well as on the BBC, Channel 4 and Comedy Central.

He is the author of ‘The Gap Yah Plannah’ (Fourth Estate, 2011), based on his award-winning YouTube sketch 'Gap Yah'. His writing has appeared in Tatler, The Telegraph, Company, Vice and The Observer. His work has been described as "reminiscent of a young Bob Dylan" by the guy who hangs around outside his local Iceland.

‘Hilarious’ (The Guardian)

‘The most natural performer... a comedy sensation’ (The Times)

‘The Daniel Day-Lewis of character comedy’ (KCLR Radio)

‘He’s certainly versatile. All of his creations are spot on and very funny’ ★★★★ (Chortle)

The Show

A supreme double-bill featuring stand-out acts The Real MacGuffins and Matt Lacey, presenting 40 minutes of their finest sketch comedy. Following highly acclaimed, sell-out appearances at Edinburgh, Brighton, Bath and Leicester Comedy Festivals the Real MacGuffins present a brand new show for Sketchfest 2014!

Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach. Those who can't teach, do a comedy show set in a school. Those is Matt Lacey. With two critically-acclaimed years of sketch shows under his belt with The Unexpected Items and double-act Mythbunking, and over seven million views on Youtube (search 'Gap Yah'), award-winning actor and comedian Matt Lacey presents his debut solo show; a smorgasbord of comic characters with some satire, some silliness and some shouting (not too much, just in case you have sensitive ears).
