“I enjoy being in one place for a month and not having to travel.”
WHO: Matt Price, Performer
WHAT: “Friendly Cornish giant Matt Price was going out with a woman. The only problem is that she wasn’t going out with him, so Matt spent a year of his life looking like the world’s worst stalker. The experience triggered a memory from his childhood. Find out why he pretended to like death metal, why he loves bad performance poetry and how a five-foot-one Glaswegian woman saved his life. ‘Fearlessly funny’ **** (Scotsman). ‘Extraordinary’ **** (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Wonderfully funny’ ***** (BroadwayBaby.com).”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This will be my 8th solo show and I think the 13th time I’ve performed at the Festival. Someone once described the Edinburgh Festival as end of term exams for comedians. I enjoy being in one place for a month and not having to travel. I also enjoy doing an hour long show.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’17?
I’ve started using my slow cooker more and as my partner is vegetarian, I’ve learned how to slow cook Quorn. It’s surprisingly good. I make a Quorn biryani, which I really like.
Tell us about your show.
My show is called “Last night a Weegie saved my life”. I wrote it and it’s the most personal story I’ve told to an audience, but it’s funny and uplifting too. It’s being promoted by Bound and Gagged and I’m looking forward to performing it. I’ve been previewing at various places this year and I have no idea where I will take it after Edinburgh, but I’m interested to find out. Possibly somewhere overseas or back home in Cornwall.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
They should tell other people about the show if they liked it. It’s helpful to have audience recommend shows. Then they should go and see my partner Martha McBrier do her show. It’s very different to mine but as she features in my show, it might be interesting…
