If you’re in the need for a bit of a laugh to kick off the new year (and with how 2022 has treated us, who doesn’t?), then you’ll be happy to hear that local comedian Matt Reed plans on stirring up the chuckles when he performs at Tyne Theatre & Opera House on Saturday 14th January – just enough time to get over the hangovers.  

Born and raised in the glorious land that is known as Sunderland, Reed has been a comedian longer than I’ve been alive, and he claims to have done it all… If he’s ridden a horse on stage I’d be surprised, although he has apparently gotten nude on stage, so it’s not out the realm of possibility.  

His sense of pride for the region bleeds into his act, described as having an “everyman” style, whether it’s discussing accents or the party life of Bigg Market, his set is stuffed with funny anecdotes and skits, and he isn’t afraid to get audience members on stage or comeback with a quick retort. Having been praised for his quick wit, smart cracks and warm style, his show will be a perfect way to kick off the new year.  

Matt Reed performs at Tyne Theatre & Opera House, Newcastle on Saturday 14th January.
