Matt Forde (as seen on Mock the Week, Have I Got News For You, The Royal Variety Performance and Question Time) hosts his hugely successful monthly comedy night combining up-to-the-minute topical stand-up with a wide-ranging interview with a political heavyweight. Running for over three years tickets always sell out months in advance.
The Political Party Podcast is regularly in the Top 10 comedy podcasts on iTunes and has over 50,000 subscribers. Previous guests have included Tony Blair, Nigel Farage, Michael Portillo, Liz Kendall, Alastair Campbell and Angus Robertson.
“Singlehandedly fulfilling comedy’s brief of taking our political masters to task. Combining spot-on impressions with up to the minute observations” Mail on Sunday
“Forde has the kind of impersonation skills necessary to make the political class shift uncomfortably in its collective seat…. informed, astute and consistently funny” The Telegraph
“A first class comic” The Guardian
“Hey, America! You can keep your super-slick, alpha male satirists with suspiciously black hair. We’ve got Matt Forde.” Chortle

Wed 31 Jan, special guest James Cleverly - SOLD OUT
James is regularly touted as a future leader of the Conservative party and has only been an MP since 2015. Made an Army Major in 2003, he has been awarded the Territoral Decoration, the Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal and Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Outspoken and funny, James featured on the last two series of 'Unspun' and in a striking display of honesty on 5Live admitted to having taken drugs and watched pornography.
Wed 28 Feb, special guest Ed Miliband - SOLD OUT
What more needs to be said? Labour leader for 5 years, former SpAd to Gordon Brown and reborn as a star or Twitter and podcasting.
Wed 28 Mar, special guest Angela Rayner
Angela is the youngest-ever Shadow Education Secretary and one of the most impressive members of Jeremy Corbyn's Shadow Cabinet. Having left school pregnant at 16, Angela became a care worker before rapidly rising up the ranks of Unison. Elected in 2015 she has established herself as a formidable Commons performer and a popular Question Time panellist. Funny and passionate, she is frequently tipped as a future Labour leader.
