Matt was born in northern California. Growing up he moved around a lot including living two years in Athens, Greece. In his travels he visited several countries like Singapore, Italy, Turkey and France. His father's job landed him in Las Vegas in 1992, where he now lives. In high school Matt was struck with crippling social anxiety. He's tried everything to overcome it including medication, therapy, books and even hypnosis; however, none of them helped. It wasn't until March of 2004 that Matt took the stage at his first open-mic and started his slow and long road to conquer his anxiety and stumbled upon something he was born to do, make people laugh. He has a unique self-deprecating attitude and delivery which makes him a crowd favorite. Matt tackles a wide variety of subjects from failed relationships, his new marriage and his upbringing. He has appeared on FOX and "Man Up Stand Up" hosted by Adam Hunter. Matt is a rising star and will be one of your favorite comics once you see him.
