He has performed around the country in comedy clubs and festivals. He produces sketch comedy for Horseshoe & Hand Grenade Productions.
Matt has opinions on everything and wants to share them with the world. His stand-up is based around his life experiences and all the things, from inane to meaningful, that he’s over-thought to the point of hilarity. He was a stand-up comic in Boston for several years, performing in clubs all over the city and the rest of New England and now resides in Brooklyn. He likes to take real-life observations and ponder about them to the point of absurdity.
Matt performs stand-up comedy regularly wherever people will have him.
