Coming up with original comedy ideas during a worldwide pandemic can’t be an easy thing to do, but Darlington-born comedian Matt Hoss has managed to entertain himself and a host of fans thanks to his congenial manner and a plethora of comedy pals. Over the last ten months he’s livestreamed gameplay on Twitch via his @MattHossComedy page and set up the Castival podcast, in which he’s joined by special guests – including the likes of Dane Baptiste, Justin Moorhouse and Lauren Pattison – to pitch their dream music festival. His debut hour-long show, which got a highly-acclaimed airing on Zoom back in December, is an emotionally honest and hilarious show which tackles the knotty subjects of romance, awkward sex and falling in love.

He’s now turning his hand to monthly online comedy shows, in a bid to highlight the plight of the comedy scene as well as keep his fans entertained, and God knows we could all do with a laugh at the moment. The handpicked guests will perform a blend of old and new material, with the show held together by Matt as the masterful MC. Coming up on Saturday 13th February is a star-studded show filled with recognisable funny figures, including Laura Lexx, Mark Simmons, Athena Kugblenu and Joby Mageean. Tickets are a mere fiver, and the show takes place on Zoom.
