MAT RICARDO: MAT RICARDO VS THE WORLD
For the last three decades, Mat Ricardo has carved out a living travelling around the world performing tricks – feats of dexterity, juggling, balance and associated manipulative miscellanea. While his feet have trod the boards of theatres, the shiny floors of TV studios and the cobblestones of piazzas, his hands have pulled tablecloths off and back onto tables, flipped hats, bounced balls, spun plates, and done all manner of crowd-pleasing, jaw-dropping malarkey.
But he has a problem. In thirty years of constantly seeking unique, original ways to display his deft ingenuity, he thinks he might have done everything. He's run out of tricks to learn. So, he's doing something stupid.
Mat Ricardo is officially challenging everyone in the world to try to come up with tricks that they think he can't learn.
Anyone, anywhere, can tweet him a challenge and he'll pick the most interesting ones, and then devote the next year of his life to attempting to learn them well enough to perform in front of a live audience, in his new one-man show.
