Comedian Matt Kirshen
February 3 @ 7:30 pm - February 4 @ 11:00 pm
Matt Kirshen’s precision wit has earned him an impressive reputation on the international comedy circuit. Starting his comedy career in the UK, he moved to America as a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. He has also appeared on Comedy Central’s @Midnight, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Paul Provenza’s Green Room on Showtime, and The Nerdist, and is one of the regular guest co-hosts of StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson.He was a writer for The Jim Jefferies Show on Comedy Central, for which he was nominated for a Writers Guild of America Award, and also wrote for Arrested Development, and wrote for and appeared on How To Build… Everything on the Science channel and Comedy KnockOut on TruTV.His debut CD, “I Guess We’ll Never Know” was named in Laughspin Magazine’s top 10 albums of the year and his hit appearance at Just For Laughs festival in Montreal resulted in no fewer than 4 of his gags appearing in the Montreal Gazette’s round up of their best jokes of the fest.He also hosts Probably Science, a weekly comedy and science podcast featuring a mix of comedians and scientists breaking down the week’s science news. While it’s his TV appearances that most comedy fans will recognize him from, they are often surprised at the breadth and scope of his material, described by one reviewer as “intelligent, but with the emphasis firmly on the funny.”
