Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Following his sold-out season in 2017, Matt Okine makes a welcome return to Soho.
The comedian, actor, broadcaster and writer has worn many hats over the years and is back in London for an exclusive two-nights only run of his latest hit show The Hat Game.
After vacating his popular Triple J breakfast radio shift in 2016, in 2017 Matt went on to co-write and star in the television adaption of his award-winning semi-autobiographical stand up show The Other Guy that has since aired around the world.

‘With impeccable timing, landing and pace, stand-up comedian Matt Okine is worthy of an Olympic gold medal for his hilarious rags-to-riches tale.’
‘What separates Okine from other stand-up comedians is his ability to weave multiple stories and comedic asides seamlessly together, a high-wire balancing act that could easily tip over into clumsiness in less adept hands.’
