STAGE DOOR JOHNNY
A flirtatious, lyrical lothario and seasoned comic raconteur with razor-sharp wit, he'll have audiences grinning, giggling and eating from the palm of his hand -sometimes literally. Johnny can be heard singing everything from Shirley Bassey to Guns ‘n’ Roses, as well as ridiculous self-penned medleys to surprise and delight! Stage Door Johnny is the resident host for Tres Tres Cabaret in Stafford and La De Da Cabaret in Derby.

According to The Scotsman, Mat is “Undoubtedly one of the greatest variety artists working today”.
His 35+ year career saw him learn his craft as a street performer in London’s famous Covent Garden before travelling the world's theatres, cabaret clubs and festivals, advancing and redefining his artform to become one of the most critically acclaimed and successful speciality acts there is. He is, to quote the London Evening Standard, “Breathtaking”. His groundbreaking work merges physical and verbal comedy, storytelling, dance and, of course, his trademark spectacular feats of circus, magic and dexterity, all presented in a unique cocktail of cool, slick honesty.
