Executive Producer/Creative Director
Matthew Chadourne is an American who has been performing stand-up in the UK and US since 2012. He is the creator/producer of QED Comedy Lab running multiple shows in Oxford and occasionally London. Here are some nice quotes about him:
"Chaotically charismatic” – The Oxford Times
“Matthew Chadourne acted as the showrunner and first act, setting the bar high…. Chadourne held the night together, returning between acts to riff off of what had come before.” – Daily Info Oxford
Anna took her first steps in stand up right here in Oxford: her first ever gig took place in the student bar at Worcester College. Since then, she has competed in a handful of national competitions, reaching the semi-finals as her alter ego, Iona Fortune. She found that her social media addiction turned out to be quite useful for promoting shows and got involved with spreading the word about the festival last year. She couldn’t get enough of the emotional roller coaster so she’s back for more!
