Leeds Festival of Science 2018

A show about climate change from comedian and environmental economist Matt Winning describing how global warming is destroying both the planet and his life. ‘Lightweight stuff’ (Guardian). Matt gives a presentation on how a world which is sick of experts may not be about much longer. For fans of ‘An Inconvenient Truth’.



Winner of the Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year 2011, Matt Winning is one of the most exciting, unique and imaginative new stand-up and character comedians in the UK.

The Scottish comic’s eccentric and idiosyncratic act is a whirlwind of ideas, combining an original approach to one-liners, acute observations and shouting loudly. Matt was a finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards 2012. He was also finalist in the Chortle Student Comedy Awards in 2010 as himself and again in 2011 as the character Steph E Graph.
