matty b – a blunt instrument @ the factory theatre

Fresh off the plane from his success at the Melbourne Comedy Festival comes Matty B as part of the Sydney Comedy Festival.

Matty B’s somewhat confronting humour goes where other comedians fear to tread.

Despite the tough and extremely intimate venue – ‘The Container’ at the Factory Theatre, (literally a carpeted storage container with 50 chairs inside), he crossed the line but read his audience well and kept the laughs rolling.

Matty B has got it tough doing comedy in Sydney – he angles himself as a jobless waster on the fringe of the drug scene, yet the type of people who can pay Sydney ticket prices and go out to the theatre on a rainy Friday aren’t from that ‘tax bracket’  our group were all professionals.

His funniest, connecting moments were not the most shocking or with the worst language, but when he hit the common ground of turning thirty, the stresses of daily life, and strange people who open button shops.

Whilst his material was funny, we felt that there could have been more of it packed into the storage container, had it been delivered with a little more pace. Perhaps if he develops his Bogan character in more depth – he is clearly intelligent and well-read behind the scene – he will find his niche in the comedy circuit, and thus the acclaim that he deserves.

A good night out with lots of laughs, though not for the easily offended.
