"UNDOUBTEDLY ONE OF THE GREATEST VARIETY ARTISTS AT WORK TODAY"

THE SCOTSMAN

the first man in history to learn to put the tablecloth back on the table, but that's just one of his incredible feats.

cabaret

Mat has performed on the finest cabaret, burlesque, and comedy stages the world over - headlining shows from Asia to Europe, Scandinavia to New Zealand, Australia to the USA, and virtually everywhere in between.

He has performed extensively in the corporate entertainment sector, his breadth of material - encompassing stand-up comedy, slapstick, dance, and of course high-level circus - allowing him to fit seamlessly into any show, before stealing it.

Mat has created and performed four full-length one-man theatre shows. The award-winning "Three Balls and a Good Suit", the London sell-out "Vaudeville Schmuck", the critically acclaimed "Showman", which completed a sold-out London West-End run as part of the London International Mime Festival, and showcased live on television at the Busan International Comedy Festival, and his new show "Mat Ricardo vs The World", which was an Edinburgh fringe 2018 total sellout, and is on tour now.

Additionally, his groundbreaking "London Varieties" project drew some of the biggest names in cabaret and comedy together, and brought variety back to a West-End theatre.

street

A completely unique street performer in both style and content, Mat learned his craft at London's famous Covent Garden in the late 1980's, and still loves the freedom, energy and craziness that comes from good street theatre.

He continues to perform at most of the biggest busking festivals the world over, including multiple tours of Canada, New Zealand, Japan, Australia and Europe, and, in 2017 he won the peoples Choice award at the Ottawa Streetfest.

Big laughs, big crowds, serious skills, and the best tailoring you'll ever see in a street show!
