The Political Party with Matt Forde


Matt Forde (as seen on Mock the Week, Have I Got News For You, The Royal Variety Performance and Question Time) hosts his hugely successful monthly comedy night combining up-to-the-minute topical stand-up with a wide-ranging interview with a political heavyweight. Running for over three years tickets always sell out months in advance.
The Political Party Podcast is regularly in the Top 10 comedy podcasts on iTunes and has over 50,000 subscribers. Previous guests have included Tony Blair, Nigel Farage, Michael Portillo, Liz Kendall, Alastair Campbell and Angus Robertson.

“Singlehandedly fulfilling comedy’s brief of taking our political masters to task. Combining spot-on impressions with up to the minute observations” Mail on Sunday

“Forde has the kind of impersonation skills necessary to make the political class shift uncomfortably in its collective seat…. informed, astute and consistently funny” The Telegraph

“A first class comic” The Guardian

“Hey, America! You can keep your super-slick, alpha male satirists with suspiciously black hair. We’ve got Matt Forde.”  Chortle

The Herald
