"I saw Matt Green compere in a Leicester Square comedy club in 2018. He was witty, funny, fantastic with crowd interaction, bang up to date on current affairs and intelligent so I took his card for my drawer in case I wanted to hire him in the future. One year later, an opportunity arose where we wanted a comedian to MC a national business awards final competition, that took place in the House of Commons. I recommended to my client a comedian specifically because they can lift the mood and lift the atmosphere in such an austere, serious venue. Matt prepared his script well in advance which made my life easier. The first version of his script needed no edits from my end either, which was miraculous!
Matt is highly educated from Cambridge University, and was also involved in Footlights, so he is the perfect host for corporate and university events, to name a few. He followed my brief and didn’t do any jokes that were not on brief. As Matt is so well read and follows the news, he was able to make bang up to date off the cuff new unscripted jokes on the day, which was a delight for me to see and raised laughs from the room. I had faith that my client and the crowd would like him also on the day given what I had seen before in his performance, and the frequent roars of laughter from the crowd, showed that. My client was thrilled with his performance and said he would hire Matt again. I also would not hesitate to hire Matt Green again, and I hope I will get the privileged opportunity and joy to do so.”
(Kerry Hopkins, CEO of Baron & Hopkins, and Broadcast Ready)
"Matt was an excellent host and comedian for our client’s 10yr anniversary celebration! He held the whole evening together, thoroughly entertaining and professional throughout – even during a few technical issues! Really flexible and easy to work with and highly recommended." (Zoe Boyd, Rockitfish)
"Charming, erudite and very funny, Matt Green makes a perfect host for audiences young and old." (Dan Ferguson, Historical Royal Palaces)
"Matt is a delight to work with! This is the second year that we have used him as compere for our awards evening and we would book him again in a heartbeat. Matt is funny, professional, conscientious and easy to work with. He remembered details about our event from the previous year, and worked with our project management team to help deliver an even smoother one this year. It’s obvious that Matt cares about getting it right and wants your event to be a success. Matt easily connects with the audience and can boost up the crowd, or quiet them down when needed."(Eleanor Nickerson, Top Employers Institute)
As well as live performing experience Matt has also written and performed for TV and Radio shows including The News Quiz, The Now Show, Comedy Lab, Cuckoo, Fresh Meat, Eastenders, Starlings, Doctors, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps and many more.
- Do you do open-air acts?Happy to host / present open air events but it doesn't tend to work very well for comedy sets
- How long is the act?Flexible - happy to do a comedy set up to 45 mins or host for a full show. In general for a private / corporate booking I'd suggest no longer than 20-30 mins for a set.
- What other services to you provide?This information all refers to me individually as an act or MC. I can also put together full bills of comedy and provide a PA for a small to medium sized room on request.
