Matt Forde

A sharp brain, a quick wit and an infectious laugh are the hallmarks of Matt Forde.

Matt’s love of politics (or comedy, depending on your point of view) led him to spent a few years working The Labour Party. This, and a short stint commentating on Mansfield FM sports programmes led Matt into radio and a 5 min guest spot on BBC 6 Music’s ‘Russell Howard & Jon Richardson Show’, which rapidly snowballed into a permanent spot as a regular feature of the show.
He later became a regular weekly host on the  ‘Jon Richardson Show’ on BBC 6 Music and he has written for the likes of ‘Mock the Week’ and ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’.

He delivers his material with an amiable charm which produces a genuine sense of warmth about him. He is a fine raconteur, and an able impressionist.
