Matt is known for playing dark, troubled characters although he is equally adept at playing more humorous, upbeat roles. As a comedian Matt tends to challenge conventions and really push boundaries. He has appeared on The Dr. Steve Show (WPIX), Wendy Williams (Fox), on APTV, where he co-hosted The 2015 Winter Film Awards, and at The Edinburgh Comedy Festival. His one man show was given four star reviews at Edinburgh where it was deemed "brilliantly irreverent" and "a stellar success."

Bill Garry of Discover Hollywood called it "a dynamic showcase" with "good direction and production values," and compared it to "Wolf of Wall Street on crack." Matt tries to give back as a comedian, and, of late, has served as a talent coordinator for the Gotham Comedy Foundation, an organization that brings comics into cancer centers and senior homes. Finally, Matt's writing has been published in such markets as Writer's Digest, The New York Post, .Mic, Points In Case, Humor Times, and Antigonish Review.

Director Statement

Every day during this election cycle we heard Trump say things like it's a rigged system. The media is corrupt. There is collusion between our country and foreign governments. My short film, "Inside Job," also deals with conspiracy theories and secret plots--only in reference to 9/11.

A dark comedy, with a run time of 38 minutes, the film explores an intern's first day at an office run by truthers, who believe the U.S. Government was involved with a massive coverup of 9/11. The film also explores the abuse of corporate power--and corruption--elements that have figured prominently this year on the national stage.

Make no mistake about it, our film is a comedy--with a killing spree, a dead hooker, and a crazy boss with severe anger issues. Yet beneath these madcap antics is a telling exposition of the subterranean machinations that dominate our political and corporate machines.
