Mat Ricardo: Showman
  • Brighton Fringe

Fast hands, smart mouth. Nice suit. The Gentleman Juggler, leading speciality act of the British cabaret revival presents big laughs, serious skills, slapstick and breath taking spectacle. See genuine danger, dexterous elegance and thrills, performed by a man at the top of his game. Old favourites, tricks that haven't been performed for decades and some that have never been performed before at all. Prepare to be astounded by Mat Ricardo, Showman. One of the hardest working and most entertaining speciality acts in the world. Mat is the the first man in history to be able to put a tablecloth back on a table underneath all the objects, but he'll never let his amazing tricks get in the way of his cutting wit. You'll stop laughing, only to gasp. "Showman" played to a completely sold-out London West End run, won the Arts Award Voice Pick of the Fringe award, and was recently showcased at the Purcell Room as part of Southbank Centre's "London International Mime Festival". Mat's work is always influenced by his twin passions: the history and legacies of variety and light entertainment - and making an audience gasp! "Outstanding" Time Out
