Reliably informed

A relatively new face on the UK’s comedy scene, Amy Matthews has previously been on the BAFTA winning Scot Squad and presented on BBC Radio 4.

Performances of her highly anticipated debut comedy show, titled Moreover, The Moon, has had audiences in stitches, and this month sees the show head to Newcastle’s Alphabetti Theatre on Saturday 18th June.

Moreover, The Moon centres around the curious phenomenon of ‘main character syndrome’, a predominant trope on social media sites like TikTok used to describe self-centred people who see their lives taking centre stage, with other people merely supporting extras. Matthews places herself in this mindset, and takes a somewhat sympathetic look at the trials of modern living. It sounds a little egocentric, and that’s because it is, but it is currently one of the funniest shows touring, being considered one of the highlights from the Glasgow Comedy Festival.
