Matt Green is alive. He returns to the Fringe after a year away with a show about all of the things that haven't killed him. It's a long list. Because he isn't dead yet.

Featuring evacuations, explosions, a suicidal bee and at least one visit to the hospital.

Taking us through a year of near (but mostly not-so-near) death experiences, Matt contemplates travel, children, inanimate objects (surprisingly deadly) and other potential threats. Do we live in a safer world now, which makes us over dramatise the remaining dangers that we face? Or is that just what Matt does? And why does he like being in front of an audience - something that most people would rather die than do? Is it perhaps linked to a genuinely life-threatening experience a long time ago?

Matt's four previous solo shows have all received sell out status and widespread critical acclaim at the Leicester, Brighton, Bath and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals. In 2011 he was nominated for Best New Show at Leicester Comedy Festival.

Matt is a regular on the comedy circuit across the UK and is a regular writer and performer for TV and Radio including Jo Caulfield's Speakeasy, Comedy Lab, Comedy Showcase, The Now Show, Cabin Pressure, Inspector Steine and many more...
