Every few months we like to offer something a bit special at The Barrels. While we normally bring you the best bubbling under comedy talent, every so often we like to bring you an established act doing their best stuff just for you.
We’re delighted that MATT REES will be headlining our show.
Matt has been Chortle Best Newcomer nominee, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, the Loaded Laftas new act of the year, the Leicester Square Theatre comedian of the Year, and the Welsh Unsigned Stand-Up of the year. Matt has generated a huge buzz on the circuit over the past year with his unique brand of well-crafted gags and acerbic delivery earning him high praise from audiences and critics alike.
