Matt Winning

Comedian and Environmental Economist



Scottish comedian Matt Winning has been performing since 2009 and quickly gained a reputation as an exciting new act after winning the Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year in 2011 and appearing in the final of the BBC New Comedy Awards 2012. He also reached the final of the Chortle Student Comedy Awards in 2010, as himself, and again in 2011, as a character.

Matt is the co-creator of the Bearpit Podcast Podcast which he performs in monthly at the Invisible Dot in London with Mat Ewins, John Kearns, Adam Hess, Fin Taylor, Richard Gadd and Lolly Adefope.

Press about Matt Winning:

"Fine and distinctive one-liners in his set, with strange points of reference and clever inventive writer”
Steve Bennett, Chortle

“Instant laughs”
The Skinny

“With some actual jokes and delicious bits about his painfully unfunny parents who can’t see the dividing line between their son’s comedy and his real life, there was an edge and drive to Winning’s brief but inventive set”
Brian Donaldson, Chortle

"Winning offered the complete package: he's got the material, the pacing and the presence to win over most crowds"

"A Scottish Milton Jones... so well done and over the top that the audience are pulled into his world"
Festival Journal
