Name Of Show: Matt Green: Punch Up
Date: August 7th – 11th
Location: Camden Comedy Club
Hello! Tell us about yourself Matt?
I’m a comedian, actor and writer living in London. I’ve been doing stand up for nearly fifteen years now and this is I think my tenth solo show.
How did you come up with the name of your show that your taking to the Camden fringe?
Tell us a little bit about your style of stand up comedy?
What will your set be about?
What other acts are you looking forward to seeing at the fringe?
I’ve worked with Rhys James, Marlon Davis and Caroline Mabey recently and they’re all doing great work – I’m sure their shows will be worth catching.
What have been some of your favourite shows to date at the Camden Fringe and why?
Some acts have already tried it and done shows in the environment but do you think virtual reality has a space to be used in comedy and what other modern technologies do you think could alter the way we interact and watch comedy?
In terms of stand up I’m a bit of a purist – I like the simplicity of just one person and a microphone. I’ve seen some great audio-visual comedy from performers in the past, particularly people like Dave Gorman, Claudia O’Doherty and Mat Ewins, but there’s something very powerful about the stand up that I hope will endure.
And Finally in three words – Why should people come and see the show?
CAMDEN FRINGE QUICK FIRE ROUND
What advice would you give to others who want to perform at Camden Fringe next year?
Well, I really like the Camden Comedy Club (which is where I’m performing), but the Etcetera and Hen and Chickens are also close to my heart – I did some of my first shows there many years ago, plus I’ve seen some excellent people perform there (including a young Daniel Kitson…)
What are your three favourite things about Camden?
