Bio

Matt Walker is a Southern California based stand-up comedian, writer, and actor. He tours frequently with Mike Muratore (as seen on Operation Repo) and Stephen Kramer Glickman (from Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush and the animated feature film Storks), and has played shows at every type of venue imaginable. He counts as his major influences Louis C.K., Ron White, Dave Attell, David Cross, Chris Rock, Bob Newhart, and Dave Chappelle. He has a small role in the film Tears of a Clown, and has appeared in multiple unaired pilots.

Along with Stephen Kramer Glickman and Mike Black, Matt hosts The Night Time Show podcast, which is part of the Sideshow Network, which includes podcasts from Gilbert Gottfried, Iliza Shlesinger, Adam Ray, and many others. It is available on iTunes, Google Play, and everywhere podcasts are consumed.

He has appeared on numerous radio and Internet shows such as Huffington Post Live discussing comedy, news of the day, pop culture, and sports, and always is an entertaining guest regardless of the medium. His jokes have been showcased in the Baltimore Sun, and he has been quoted and featured in articles on The Daily, Mediabistro’s Fishbowl LA, the CBC, and Examiner.com

In March of 2012, Matt Walker was named the winner of the Shorty Award for #comedian, recognizing him as the stand-up comedian that best uses social media. He was subsequently mentioned in many mainstream press outlets, including CBS News.

He has also worked in radio for much of the past decade, co-creating and hosting Verbosity for National Lampoon Radio on SiriusXM. Matt got his break in radio by producing and co-hosting The Small Business Hour on 97.1 FM KLSX in Los Angeles. Matt also co-hosted the National Hair Hour, a show all about the prevention and treatment of hair loss on KLSX.

Matt prides himself on being able to connect with crowds made up of any demographic. With his large following of adolescents on Twitter, Matt has an act that works well for younger audiences, and with his stories of his elderly parents, he is able to connect with older crowds as well.

Growing up as one of a handful of white children in the community of Pico Rivera, CA, he has a unique perspective on white America and its relation to those of non-European backgrounds. He has extensive performing experience in rooms made up of minority audiences from all socio-economic backgrounds. Oh yeah, he’s also a nerd, as you can tell by the previous paragraph.

His debut comedy special, H8R, is now available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and at funnymatt.com.
