Mat Ricardo Vs The World

February 15, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm



Mat Ricardo vs The World

Award-winning cabaret star, and the UK’s most successful juggler, Mat Ricardo, had a problem – after a 30-year career as the go-to guy for jaw-dropping dexterity, he’d run out of new tricks. So he did something stupid. He bet everyone in the world that he could learn any trick they could think of.

He devoted the next year attempting to learn them well enough to perform in front of a live audience, in his new show “Mat Ricardo vs The World”, which will premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe in summer 2018, before touring the UK in the autumn.

★★★★★ “Brilliant” The Herald

“Captivating” The Scotsman

“Very funny” The Guardian

This is a one-man variety show – world-class juggling, magic and illusion, escapology, sleight of hand, knife throwing, stand-up comedy, feats of strength, demonstrations of dexterity, and the only good trick that exists with a fidget spinner.

Ages 10+.

Mat Ricardo, the Gentleman Juggler, is one of the most unique, critically-acclaimed, and reliably entertaining variety performers. Mat Ricardo on stage is an opportunity to see genuine danger performed by a natural comedian at the top of his game.

He is a TedX Speaker, Magic Circle doyen, 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.

“Undoubtedly one of the greatest variety artists at work today.. one trick provoked the purest gasp I’ve ever heard.. another great show from a master of his form.” – ★★★★The Scotsman

“A quintessential showman and self-described “vaudeville schmuck”, Ricardo’s variety act is normally defined by faultless delivery and impeccable preparation; but this time around, he’s knocked away those supports, and gives us instead a portrait of raw endeavour.” – ★★★★★Fringe Guru
