Matt Forde - 24 Hour Political Party People 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 09, Aug 2014
For someone as overtly into politics as Matt Forde this must be a great year. The official countdown to the next General Election, The Scottish Referendum and not to mention some of the lampoonable politicians that currently inhabit centre stage.
Although a Labour man at heart Forde shows no bias as he rips into politicians of all parties and being an impressionist of some note his uncanny recreation of the likes of Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson, Tony Blair and Ed Milliband, together with a whole host of comedians who may or may not be actively political ensure that laughs are free flowing throughout the all too short hour.
Matt does not preach, this is not a political rally, just a guy with plenty to say, oodles of comedy talent and the stage presence and personality to fill the venue and then some. Could be if a few of his victims had anything like the same savvy the country would be in a far better position than it is.
No need for a referendum on this show, it is a resounding Yes
