Matt Chorley has been a Westminster-based political journalist since 2005, when politics was boring, and it has gradually got madder as he worked his way through the Press Association, Western Morning News, Independent on Sunday, MailOnline and The Times, where he now writes a column on Saturdays.
Since June 2020, Matt Chorley has presented the mid-morning show on Times Radio, Monday to Friday 10am-1pm, including features like PMQs Unpacked, If I Ruled The World and the hugely popular quiz, Can You Get To No10? He was fourth best radio broadcaster in 2020, behind Clara Amfo, Frank Skinner and Emma Barnett. Listen to Times Radio on DAB, app and smart speaker.
A sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2005 with the sketch group Big Day Out (**** The Scotsman) led to a small 14-year break from comedy before his debut stand-up This. Is. Not. Normal. in 2019, during which somebody called an election. His second tour, Who Is In Charge Here?, only had to deal with a war and the collapse of the government.
