Mat Ricardo sez, "For the last 23 years I've been touring the world as a comedy variety performer, but the industry I love is all but dead in my native UK, so I'm at a bit of a career crossroads. So - I'm doing my first (and perhaps last) one man show at this years Edinburgh Festival, to try to determine what I do with the rest of my life. Do I continue as a performer, or do I find a job that will satisfy me artistically while letting me see my wife and friends more than once a month? I'll let my audience help me decide. MAT RICARDO: THREE BALLS AND A GOOD SUIT is the show. I'm doing two nights of previews at the Deptford Albany London, and then I'm at the Edinburgh festival."
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
