LaughEasy Comedy Presents 

Matt Rees

Multi-award-winning Welsh comedian, Matt Rees, has generated a huge buzz on the circuit over the past few years with his unique brand of well-crafted gags and acerbic delivery earning him high praise from audiences and critics alike.

"A properly original comedy mind"
The Guardian 

The deadpan stand-up is a sober drunk and a couple of years ago he had to take a break from comedy to deal with his personal matters, but now he’s back and taking the comedy scene by storm once more. As well as starring in BBC3’s This Country and BBC’s Edinburgh Fringe Highlights, Matt has also recently recorded an episode of BBC2’s Stand Up at BBC Wales, Amazon’s Audible Presents and Stand Up For BBC Radio Wales.

Matt also made his hotly anticipated debut solo show at The Edinburgh Fringe in 2018 at The Pleasance with Happy Hour, a humorous approach to his alcoholism and his everyday life.

The rising star has won a whole host of awards including Leicester Mercury Comedian of the YearLeicester Square Comedian of The Year, Welsh Unsigned Act of The Year and Loaded LAFTAs, as well as being nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer.

Matt works across the board of the top UK clubs, such as The Comedy Store, Glee Club and The 99 Club and has also performed at the leading comedy/music festivals such as Latitude, Reading, Leeds, Green Man and the fantastically off-beat Welsh festival, Machynlleth Comedy Fest. Also, Matt has provided tour support for the likes of Joe Lycett, John Robins, Elis James, Patrick Kielty as well as Tig Notaro. 

This year he got into the semi-finals of British Comedian of the Year Awards.

 “Comedian to watch" 
The Times

“Rees' phlegmatic, hangdog delivery belies a phenomenally high gag rate. And as he draws each of his routines to a close with a swerve of deft wordplay there is a surprising feeling of the pacey rhythm more familiar in a one-liner show. He has an eye for the bizarre and for darkness. Rees can tell a story or create a world in a sentence.”

The Skinny

"A gem in the form of a laconic youngster with an instinctive comedic talent"

"Matt's writing was a stand out. Apparently casual asides spin out into fresh routines" 


"Quite brilliant. I’d love to see more of this comic."
Kate Copstick, The Scotsman

Awesome night of comedy. Such a good line up of comedians with wicked humour. The host Kris was hilarious and the host and all acts left me with aching cheeks and tears from laughing so much. The venue is great, really friendly and welcoming staff with an excellent choice of drinks. And if you’re there on a night like this when they’re unable to provide food they’re more than happy for you to bring in your own snacks or meals. Will definitely be attending the next laugh easy night in Cokeworks
