There’s an Edinburgh Double Bill Comedy Preview at Newport’s Riverfront Theatre on Saturday June 22 as two acts Matt Rees and Saskia Preston deliver an evening of cutting-edge comedy.
Multi-award-winning Welsh comedian, Matt Rees, has generated a huge buzz on the circuit over the past few years with his unique brand of well-crafted gags and acerbic delivery earning him high praise from audiences and critics alike.
As well as starring in BBC3’s This Country and BBC’s Edinburgh Fringe Highlights, Matt has also recently recorded an episode of BBC2’s Stand Up at BBC Wales, Amazon’s Audible Presents and Stand Up for BBC Radio Wales.
Described by The Times as a “Comedian to watch” Matt will be presenting his new act, Work In progress.
Ninety-Five is the debut show from Saskia Preston writer for Radio 4’s The Now Show and News Quiz, and 4 Extra’s Newsjack. A family birthday party back in a childhood setting is a trigger for a wander down memory’s estrada. Featuring gay bars and needless Portuguese words. Ninety-Five was part of the prestigious AAA Stand-Up Late show 2018.
