Comedy is a difficult type of entertainment to get right. Most of our group appreciated the humour, so well done.

Jon was amazing very clever witty person. So glad we booked him sorry about the crowd at the back ruined it. But we loved every min, and would not hesitate to book again, highly recommended

Jon Matthews was everything we'd hoped for on our first comedy night in our country pub. No one knew what to expect and our guests were interested and a little sceptical. Jon was the perfect headliner as he won over the crowd with ease. He is professional, personable, and above all he is bloody funny. Clever, insightful, and sharp as a tack whilst warm and likeable. I'm over the moon and keen to book him again.
