MATTHEW MURRAY

STANDUP COMEDIAN

Experience

Born and raised in Calgary Alberta Canada, Matthew now calls Saskatoon Saskatchewan his home. Matthew’s first DVD was picked up by New Wave Dynamics and distributed on iTunes thanks to a chance encounter with Dane Cook. Matthew has headlined for audiences across Canada at comedy clubs, corporate events, fundraisers, and multiple appearances at the prestigious Gotham Comedy Club in New York City.

 

Performance Style

Matthew Murray’s comedy is observational and always on point. A mixed bag of hilarity and the absurd, Matthew has something for everyone. His show is a constantly evolving tapestry of life experience, blatant lying, and an overactive imagination. Focusing on his continual battle to lose weight, how the 2nd marriage is the good one, or how Walmart is out to get him, he’ll leave audiences young and old wanting more.

 

Why hire Matthew Murray? 

From winning Calgary’s Funniest New Comic at the start of his career, through 20 years of evolution Matthew has taken everything life has thrown at him and turned into a wonderfully original tale of our world from his view. Matthew is a great choice to headline your Comedy Club, energize your Corporate Christmas Party, maximize the value of your Fundraising Event, host as a professional master of ceremonies for your company event, or whatever else you may need laughter at. He can work as clean as you require or can dish out the edge with the best of them.
