Performer Bio

Matthew Jackson

Matthew Jackson

Since moving to Melbourne in 2016, Matthew has continued to prop a financially shaky career as a writer with the much more fiscally reliable career of a comedian. You can see Matthew perform twice a month in Fresh Blood with his team Cluck Cluck Surfs Up and once a month in Sunday Buffet with Matt & Millie

Before training at The Improv Conspiracy Theatre, Matthew studied various styles of improv and sketch in London, with The Spontaneity Shop, Hoopla Impro, and Second City. Matthew is a part of several Improv festival shows including Soothplayers Improvised ShakespeareStiff Company and Completely Improvised Potter.

Matthew runs a fantasy roleplaying podcast called Fate and Fables using professional actors, improvisors, and comedians, many of which perform regularly within The Imrpov Conspiracy Theatre. It releases every week on Saturday and can be accessed via Soundcloud, iTunes, or any podcasting apps.
