Matt Winning

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

Winner of the Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year 2011, Matt Winning is one of the most exciting, unique and imaginative new stand-up and character comedians in the UK.

The Scottish comic’s eccentric and idiosyncratic act is a whirlwind of ideas, combining an original approach to one-liners, acute observations and shouting loudly. Matt was a finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards 2012. He was also finalist in the Chortle Student Comedy Awards in 2010 as himself and again in 2011 as the character Steph E Graph.

Matt has appeared on BBC3 Comedy Marathon, Hardeep at the Stand (BBC Scotland) and regularly performs on live shows for The Stand, CKP, Hilarity Bites and Avalon’s Comedy Network as well as performing sketches and characters at cult evening The Stockholm Syndrome in Glasgow.

He is also one-third of faux-rap group Vocal Point with So You Think You’re Funny winner James Kirk and Chortle Student finalist Richard Gadd. Matt has also written sketches for BBC Radio Scotland and The Comedy Unit.
