Sam began performing standup comedy at the famous (at the time) Harold Park Hotel when he was 16, getting his first paid gig at 17. He has since been runner-up in the Raw Comedy National Final, nominated for Best Emerging Comic at the Adelaide Fringe, and for both Best Newcomer and the Piece of Wood Awards at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Luckily, he’s never actually won anything, so this mild success never went to his head.
He has supported the likes of Wil Anderson, Dave Hughes, and Arj Barker amongst others, and appeared often on TV, radio and in comedy festival shows around the country.
Sam’s television writing credits include the popular children’s sketch show ‘You’re Skitting Me’, as well as ‘The Big Bite’, ‘The Mansion’ and ‘The Ronnie Johns Half Hour’. He was a contributing writer and performer on ‘Stand-up! Australia’, and a staff writer on ‘Rove’.
“****- undeniably funny.’”
“He makes it easy to laugh… an immensely likeable boyishness.”
“His jokes are like ninjas quietly sneaking up on you”
Matty B is the most adorable space cadet you will meet. He’s part philosopher, part stoner and a part time model with a point of view that is definitely off the planet.
He performs comedy, writes and performs music, he can juggle and can regularly be seen busking with his left of centre perspective.
His surreal and frequently outright silly sense of humour will lure you into a world where walking your dog can be a treachorous ordeal and mermaids host under age raves in remote cave systems.
Watching Matty B is a low impact high cardio workout for your brain, plus it’s a whole lot of fun.
