A key figure of the British cabaret scene, and a London Cabaret Award winner for Best Speciality Act, Mat regularly headlines the finest venues and shows in London UK and the world!
His breadth of material - encompassing elements of Stand-up comedy, slapstick, dance, and of course high level circus, lets him fit seamlessly into any style of show.
Astonishing, hilarious, and the only person in the world able to put the tablecloth back on the table!
Mat Ricardo is one of the few jugglers in the World specialising in the almost lost art of gentleman juggling, the art of performing juggling or balancing tricks with objects found in a restaurant, bar or gentleman's club. Mat delights in working hard to develop completely unique and incredible tricks that leave audiences unsure if they can safely believe their own eyes. Slick, smooth and occasionally very silly and with enough tricks up his sleeve to stun even the most jaded of audiences.
Mat Ricardo is one of the most sought after variety acts Britain has to offer, and probably the funniest gentleman juggler in the world.
