"One of the best shows I have ever seen" - Arts Award
Mat's success with his one-man theatre shows, at festivals, and on national and international tours, has earned him several theatre awards, two runs at the London International Mime Festival, performances as far afield as Australia, South Korea, Finland and Belgium, along with a week of performances at London's Purcell Room.
His work merges verbal and physical comedy, storytelling, dance, and of course, his trademark spectacular feats of dexterity.

mat ricardo's london varieties
A desire to bring an exciting, new style variety show to a West-End theatre fuelled Mat's "London Varieties" project. For two, six-month seasons, the shows mixed the stars of the new variety world, with some of the biggest names in comedy and cabaret, and delivered unique nights, packed with one-off moments, collaborations, show-stopping performances and heartfelt interviews.
Mat's guests included Al Murray, Paul Daniels, Eddie Izzard, Dave Gorman, Omid Djalili, Jenny Eclair, Abandoman, The Boy With Tape On His Face, and many many more. He also led a chorus line of tap dancers, risked his life, and got a pie in the face. Fun was had!
It will return to London's West End for three shows in the second half of 2017 - for details and booking click here
