Winner of the Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year 2011, Matt Winning is one of the most exciting, unique and imaginative new stand-up and character comedians in the UK.
The Scottish comic’s eccentric and idiosyncratic act is a whirlwind of ideas, combining an original approach to one-liners, acute observations and shouting loudly. Matt was a finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards 2012. He was also finalist in the Chortle Student Comedy Awards in 2010 as himself and again in 2011 as the character Steph E Graph. 2016’s Fringe saw him do extremely well with his high-concept and exciting show Ragnarok as well as I Am Wario as one third of his comedy trio.
Matt is a co-creator of the Bearpit Podcast Podcast which is a “Cultish” ( The Independent) character-improv show with a monthly residency at the Invisible Dot in London. In 2016, he became one of the first comedians to appear on the new subscription video-on-demand site Next Up Comedy. He has appeared on BBC3 Comedy Marathon, Hardeep at the Stand (BBC Scotland) and regularly performs on live shows for The Stand, CKP, Hilarity Bites and Avalon’s Comedy Network as well as performing sketches and characters at cult evening The Stockholm Syndrome in Glasgow.
He is also one-third of faux-rap group Vocal Point with So You Think You’re Funny winner James Kirk and Chortle Student finalist Richard Gadd. Matt has also written sketches for BBC Radio Scotland and The Comedy Unit.
“Fine and distinctive one-liners in his set, with strange points of reference and clever exposition……an inventive writer”
Steve Bennett, Chortle
“With some actual jokes and delicious bits about his painfully unfunny parents who can’t see the dividing line between their son’s comedy and his real life, there was an edge and drive to Winning’s brief but inventive set”
Brian Donaldson, Chortle
“Winning offered the complete package: he’s got the material, the pacing and the presence to win over most crowds”
“A Scottish Milton Jones… so well done and over the top that the audience are pulled into his world”
