Matt Stellingwerf has come an impressively long way in a short amount of time. He is the newest star on the UK comedy scene, having dominated the comedy stages of New Zealand for the last five years. Stellingwerf is a man to watch out for. Note this man’s name. Go see him raise the comedy bar. He is clearly destined for big things, so that in the future when you see him and his name on TV, you can boast that you saw him in person.

“Stellingwerf’s comedy is intelligent, clever and thoroughly researched…all the while being really likeable ” – Libel
