Matt Green was born and brought up in Yorkshire, although lost the accent for career reasons. He has been performing stand-up comedy since 2003, and has appeared at venues all across the UK and the world, including in Australia, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Norway, Romania, Slovenia and Singapore!
He has made numerous television appearances such as Fresh Meat, (Channel 4), Harry Hills TV Burp (ITV1) and Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, (BBC2).
His act is a high energy mix of observational and personal stories with a dash of audience interaction and an improvisational edge.
He was placed second at the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year in 2005, and later that year went on to perform in The Comedy Zone at the 2005 Edinburgh Festival Fringe alongside Isy Suttie, Russell Kane and Mark Olver.
Matt performed stand up comedy as part of Arthur Smith and Friends at the Glastonbury Festival in 2008, a performance which was recorded and broadcast on BBC Radio 4 as part of the programme Arabella Churchill: The First Lady of Glastonbury.
