Jump onboard this steadily paced, tea fuelled ride through a stand-up poetry world with no rules (excepting those of the Health and Safety act 1992). Matthew Harvey (Poetry Idol Runner up 2011, Best Comedy Nominee Dunedin Fringe 2012) spouts about Tom Jones, Woman's Day and Masterchef twats in cravats, and he's “...totally scrumptious…” Theatreview Auckland.
Matthew Harvey is a one man cabaret of spoken word, comedy, and music... no dancing though, he's rubbish at that. Grab your hi-vis vest and strap on your safety goggles as he fearlessly explores such timeless, classic poetic themes as love, being annoyed at pedestrian crossings, smug aquatic mammals and wanting to be probed by a television doctor. All in a novelty Yorkshire accent.
Matthew Harvey is originally from the U.K. but now he's here, and he's stealing your jobs and your women. He was Poetry Idol runner up 2011 and made his Fringe debut in Auckland 2011 with “Gush! Love and Other Filthy Habits" which co-starred his partner Penny Ashton. He has also been a feature poet at London's Farrago poetry night and at Wicked Words in Leeds, but without a doubt, his career high point to date, was becoming Castleford and District Cub Scout Quiz Champion in 1986.
