Matt Stellingwerf is one of the newest stars on the UK comedy scene, having dominated the comedy stages of New Zealand for the last five years. Matt has won four NZ Comedy Guild Awards, and been nominated for the much coveted Billy T Award.
When this erudite satire-superstar gets onto the stage, the acceleration from zero to a hundred jokes is measured in seconds. Matt Stellingwerf's jokes display a man full of seriously good comedic talent. His style is a mix of the self-deprecating, satirical and hyperbolic. Grazing upon an all-encompassing choice of topics, he presents information that combines the informative or the personal narrative with pithy personal observations.
Matt has an effortless confidence, and is possessed of a talent for rapid audience interaction that is safe and unthreatening, with the disarming ability to amuse and make you feel smart all at the same time. Having previously been a criminologist, there is a certain degree of scientific reason to Stellingwerf’s material. He has an intellectual wit that is constantly on point, allowing him to mock others for their stupidity without coming across as obnoxious.
A perfect act for any corporate event!
