A former political adviser, passionate, opinionated and excitable young man he loves football, 'Prime Minister's Questions' and pasties. He has also gone to extraordinary lengths to get close to both Tony Blair and Brian Clough - and has the pictures to prove it.
Matt is a regular voice on the radio, hosting Extra Time every Friday night on the Sony-Award winning talkSPORT. He has also recently appeared as a guest on The Now Show, The News Quiz (Radio 4) and Al Murray’s Radio Show (Radio 2).
He regularly reviews the papers for Sky News and also has a number of scripted projects in development.
At the 2011 Edinburgh Festival, Matt performed his first solo stand-up show to great commercial and critical acclaim. The success of Matt’s Edinburgh show this summer Eyes to the Right, Nose to the Left has inspired Matt Forde’s Political Party, his sell-out live topical stand up show with an interview with a politician that is performed monthly at the St James Theatre.
