Matt Forde

Matt is one of the country’s most in-demand satirists.

In 2019 alone, Matt hosted the Alternative News Desk for Channel 4’s election night coverage, chaired the One Nation Conservative leadership hustings and debated Britain’s withdrawal from the EU with Tony Blair for the Institute of Global Change. In his Political Party podcast, he interviewed guests ranging from Nicola Sturgeon, David Blunkett, Andrew Marr, Jess Phillips, Angela Rayner, Rory Stewart and Sadiq Khan to name a few.
