Matt Millz Stands Up! by Harry Hill

Author: Harry HillPublisher: Faber & FaberGet the Book »


Matt did it! His performance at the T Factor has given him the fame he dreamed of. Kitty is getting more gigs booked in with a whole new stable of comedic acts. 

Unfortunately, Matt hasn’t had time to come up with new jokes  so it isn’t long before he is greeted with the worst heckle for a comedian: ‘heard it before!’. But when Kitty suggests he takes a break to work on his routine, Matt can’t stand to go back to his normal life. So he signs up with the stylish Excalibur Agency, brushing his concerns (and Kitty) aside. A life of celebrity awaits! 

But it doesn’t take long for the shine to wear off and when they  try and force him on to his first Live at the Apollo, without any preparation and no new jokes, how can Matt save himself from the ultimate humiliation?
