Come hear the story of a man who has put everything on the line to pursue what he loves, and feel inspired through humour to stop letting passion fall to the side, and start living the dream.
Matt Watson is an established international touring Canadian comedian who is showcasing material that will shape his primere in next year's Edinburgh fringe.
5 years ago he left a wonderful life to give the pursuit of Stand Up Comedy his everything, so that on his deathbed, he will rest without regret. Since then he's toured across his home country of Canada and the United States while living out of a Mazda 3, and as of last July has moved to the United Kingdom where he travels from the Northern peak of Scotland, to the Southern coast of England out of a Citroen Berlingo.
His aim is to inspire through humour those that have always wanted to pursue their passion but have let it fall to the side by sharing his story. His story about putting it all on the line to pursue what he loves, in what people keep calling 'Living The Dream.'
