One of the UK's most in-demand comedy variety performers, and the first cabaret performer to ever win the Herald Angel award for excellence in theatre, Mat Ricardo has spent the last 25 years touring the world with his unique, astonishing and hilarious act.
He is the leading speciality act of the British cabaret revival, and the UK’s most successful juggler. He presents big laughs, serious skills, slapstick, and breathtaking spectacle. His current show, ’Showman’ displays genuine danger, dexterous elegance, thrills, and ofcourse high level circus, performed by a man at the top of his game. He beguiles his audience with both old favourites and signature routines, including some tricks that haven't been performed for decades, and some that have never been performed before at all.
Mat is currently busier than ever, his current touring show ’Showman’ is underway, many exciting festivals booked in for 2015, and International Theatres keen to have him perform.
