Matt is a very clever, innovative comic who is playing with the form and getting great results. He will leave his mark. Besides, he just makes me laugh.

Matt displayed a natural, highly accessible story-telling talent. He did a great job of staying with the bonds of Jesuit school propriety while presenting a dynamic, engaging routine. I recommend him to perform at any other college that is looking for a respectful and perceptive comedian.
--Gabrielle Guiterrez, Vice President of Student Affairs, Academia Hispania, Fordham University, Rosehill Campus
For a performance at The Garden City Hotel, sponsored by the CCFA, Matt brought his humanity, insight, and, of course, hysterical take on life. His accessibility and strong connection to the audience had our guests howling with laughter and nodding knowingly as they could relate to the truths revealed in his universal themes.
--Susan Gomberg, Director of Development, CCFA
Matt and I have appeared on many successful comedy shows over the past ten years. He is a brilliant, compelling comedy talent. Matt is a master of characters that make you laugh out loud. His jokes and performance style are infectiously funny and original.
