Here are full details and booking information for the two shows that I'm performing at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe.

The follow-up to the critically acclaimed, award-winning
one man show "Three Balls and a New Suit".

A compelling, fascinating and hilarious look at the connections that link every circus, variety and vaudeville performer. Mat will astound you with feats of dexterity from long-lost acts, tell you stories from the forgotten greats of variety, and show you how history lives inside everyone who has ever done some schtick.

Also: Bad language, Edutainment, and a Syd Little reference. You've been warned.
