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.
A phenomenal storyteller - The Scotsman August
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.
