Multi talented Mat

CABARET star and juggler Mat Ricardo is bringing his show. Mat Ricardo vs The World, to Dorchester Corn Exchange on Thursday 19th July, and it’s suitable for audiences aged ten and older.

After a 30-year career as the go-to guy for jaw-dropping dexterity, Mat had a problem – he’d run out of new tricks. So he  issued a general bet that he could learn any trick that anyone could think of. He then devoted the next year attempting to learn them well enough to perform in front of a live audience.

In this one-man variety show the audience will witness genuine danger performed by a natural comedian at the top of his game. There’s juggling, magic and illusion, escapology, sleight of hand, knife throwing, stand-up comedy, feats of strength, demonstrations of dexterity, and more.

Mat Ricardo is a TedX Speaker, Magic Circle member, Royal Command performer, and the winner of the Herald Angel Award for theatre excellence, British Cabaret Award for Best Speciality Act, Stagetalk Magazine’s Show of the Year, and the Arts Award Pick of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
