Matthew grew up in a house of scholars. His father was a Ph.D. chemist, his mother has a Master’s degree in Microbiology, and his brother is a mechanical/aeronautical engineer. Matthew followed in their footsteps and studied mechanical engineering as well as computational and applied mathematics at Rice University. He then decided to become a comedian.
He has appeared on COMEDY KNOCKOUT, ADAM DEVINE’S HOUSE PARTY, THE LEAGUE, and THE MINDY PROJECT. He was featured as a New Face at the 2015 Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival where also was runner-up to Jimmy Carr in the International Roastmasters Invitational. He was just on Comedy Central’s ROAST BATTLE where he came in second place and has done a half-hour special with the network as well!
Outside of telling jokes, he enjoys swimming, sculpting cartoon characters, using semicolons pretentiously, and working on his webcomic, mondaypunday.com, that you should check out if you like puzzles or puns or whatever.
