Stage and Screen

I continue to work on stage as an actor, deviser, musician and ventriloquist. Driven by a passion for storytelling, over the last decade I have performed all over the world, from London's West End and the Edinburgh Fringe, as far as the Middle East and the Sydney Opera House.

“It is The Ventriloquist (who also plays the lanky son) who really steals the show, with an extraordinary and truly impressive display of the art.

“It’s Matt Jopling’s smart and funny ventriloquist act that wins our hearts, and a lot of laughs.”
