Matthew "Matt" Morgan (born August 10, 1977) is an English comedian, actor, writer, DJ and radio presenter. He is best known for his work with Russell Brand, with whom he shared numerous writing credits, as well as co-hosting The Russell Brand Show on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music.




Morgan met Russell Brand when he was working as an intern on MTV.[1] He first joined with Brand after the presenter told him he had a television show idea which was "good" and "commissioned", and that Morgan should work on it with him; Morgan later joked that neither of those things turned out to be true.[2] In 2010 Matt wrote and co-performed Borked TV with comedian Rufus Hound and others, a six part series featuring comedy voiceovers dubbed over existing television material.


Morgan was the co-host of The Russell Brand Show from its initial conception in 2006 on BBC 6 Music until its finish after Brand's resignation due to the prank telephone calls row. On the radio show, Morgan played the straight man to Brand's outrageous and wacky persona, often mimicking Brand's Dot Cotton-esque accent and singing. In his memoir, Booky Wook 2, Brand asserted that he and Morgan got into a row following Brand's controversial turn as the host of the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards (which the men co-wrote), and Morgan refused to return to the show.[3][4]

When Brand returned to talk radio in the Autumn of 2010, Morgan rejoined The Russell Brand Show.[5] In September 2011, Morgan joined Noel Gallagher in co-hosting a show filling in for Dermot O'Leary.
