Comedy: Matt O’Brien


Matt O’Brien (@Matt_OBrien)

The only thing Matt O’Brien hides on stage is his face. Look behind his rustic beard (figuratively, please,) and you’ll find one of the most honest and entertaining minds on Toronto’s comedy scene. O’Brien doesn’t rely on shtick or cheap tricks; he relays personal truth in the most comfortable setting he knows – the stage.

He’s been featured on MTV and recently debuted a one hour comedy special on The Comedy Network. Plus he’s got accolades, winning Canada’s Next Top Comic by XM/Sirius Radio and Best Stand-Up at the LA Comedy Festival.

“I think when people see a guy with a big beard they either think ‘that guy is smart,’ or ‘that guy gets an erection when he sees garbage.’” – Matt O’Brien
