Meet Matt Ewins – Ed Fringe 2015


My name is Matt Evans and my show this year covers everything that’s happened to me in the last 36 months, so expect a lot of wacky stories about spanners; a medley of quickfire puns about my addiction to gambling; and some feelgood anecdotes about my dangerous driving convictions.

What is the first thing people notice about you?

My lovely blue eyes, cracking hair and (some might say tiresome) urge to include the word “spanners” at least once in response to any interview question.

6 things you can’t live without during the Fringe?

Spanners. Slot Machines. Alcohol. Greyhounds. Beer. Spanners.

Who are your Edinburgh Fringe Crushes this year?

Maude Baden-Trowell, Ladle Briskett and Natalie Cattery. Or really any girl that can tolerate my company when I’ve got drunk at the Spanners Pub after the Bemused Goose Awards and I’ve started mouthing off about the Middle East.

Your darkest Fringe secret?

When rushing to do the get out of my venue last year and despite being banned from driving I accidentally drove over a dog with my car. The dog was paralysed from the front legs backwards – but also from the back legs forwards. Sadly this meant that the middle of him was double-paralysed. That dog’s name was Spanners.
