Matt Winning

Dr Matt Winning is not your average comedian. Working by day as an environmental economist at the UCL institute for Sustainable Resources, Matt combines his love for humour and the environment to perform live climate change comedy. With a PhD in climate change policy, Matt is still an active researcher, determined to make a difference through his speeches and live comedy in an attempt to help save the planet.


About Matt Winning

Dr Matt Winning is available for keynote speeches as well as stand-up comedy sets and event hosting. His presentations are hilarious and impactful in equal measure, and he is not one to shy away from stating the hard-hitting facts about the future of our planet if we fail to act now.


Dr Matt Winning published his book Hot Mess in 2021, which encompasses his two best-loved worlds: humour and environmental issues. He performed his latest stand-up show of the same name across the UK and was awarded Pick of the Fringe at Bedford Fringe Festival.

 On TV, Matt appeared as the environmental correspondent on Dave’s Unspun with Matt Forde and has also featured in BBC Scotland shows The State of It and Scot Squad. On radio, he has presented BBC Radio 4’s Net Zero: A Very British Problem which is a 4 part series. Previously he was a guest on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show and BBC Radio Scotland’s Breaking The News. Early in his comedy career, Matt quickly gained a reputation as an exciting new act after winning the Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year in 2011 and appearing in the final of the BBC Radio 2 New Comedy Awards in 2012.
