Matt Barnard

Matt Barnard has performed across the world as a compere, actor, musician, singer and juggler. He’s created a range of unique one-man shows – all in all, he’s the ultimate variety act! 

What to expect from Matt Barnard

Matt’s can compere your event with style, aplomb and loads of laughs, or hold his own in a one-man show. Choose from a range of hilariously creative shows, then sit back and enjoy. His characters include a juggling chef, a sunbathing beer drinker, a Victorian ringmaster and more. Matt’s juggling will have audiences gasping in amazement, and if you’re lucky, he might strip down to his string vest. 

Matt also knows one end of a circus tent from another and can lead a workshop on period circus skills. He’ll guide volunteers through circus history and teach them a few tricks to try at home – a great way to encourage audience participation that’s guaranteed to draws a crowd.

A world-class performer 

The juggling comedian

Matt combines his natural talent for acting and juggling with great personal charm. He would have the audience in the palm of his hand, only that’s a bit awkward for a juggler. Suffice to say, the crowd always loves him and he has countless rave reviews to his name. 

His talents have been recognised in competitions around the world. He’s won the UK Street Performer of the Year, as well as Best Solo Act at the Feldkircher Gaukler Theatre Festival in Austria.
