Mat Ricardo's London Varieties

Mat Ricardo's London Varieties

Mat Ricardo's London Varieties. Image shows from L to R: Dave Gorman, Mat Ricardo. Every month, juggler and comedian Mat Ricardo hosted a variety show live from the Leicester Square Theatre in London (Series 1 was at the Bethnal Green Working Men's Club), where the best of the best from the worlds of cabaret, variety, comedy and circus did their thing. In the second half of the show, Mat sat down with a master of their craft to chat to them about their life, career and influences. This format has now finished, but you can still enjoy all the episodes here...

Dave Gorman: The last episode of Mat Ricardo's London Varieties - recorded live at the Leicester Square Theatre - features all the usual low-grade shenanigans, plus an interview with delightful comedy bloke Dave Gorman, who reveals himself to be - spoiler alert - smart, funny and charming. We also juggled sink plungers together. Let's see another comedy interview podcast do THAT!
