Matt Reed may look like Jesus if he had discovered Lidl’s sherry, but he’s also a charismatic scoundrel. His Edinburgh show, Stalked, which is previewed at Newcastle’s Ernest on Monday 6th and ARC in Stockton on Saturday 11th July, is a story of ‘being catfished’. This dark tale recalls how he met the girl of his dreams, fell in love and experienced what it was like to be stalked.

Finding out how much love hurts isn’t always the recipe for good stand-up but I assure you Reed is absolutely hilarious. His delivery has a swagger and confidence that is usually only seen in the very upper echelons of UK comedy and you won’t find many better MCs around; God forgive any hecklers who may cross his path.

Matt Reed’s Stalked is at Ernest, Newcastle on Monday 6th and Stockton’s ARC on Saturday 11th July.
