Bio

Matty Blake was born on the comedy stages of Boston.  It was kinda gross as people didn’t expect to witness a live birth on stage.

He immediately started doing standup, sketch & improv…as a baby.  He was subsequently raised by a wild pack of legendary Boston headliners.

This led to a successful run in radio, working his way from head-writer/sidekick to eventually getting his own show.

Then Matty made the semi-finals of the Comedy Central “Laugh Riots” Standup Competition, held in New York City.  He ventured from his comfortable Boston life and went to bite the big Apple.  He didn’t mind the maggots.  In fact, he got signed by a major agency Don Buchwald & Associates.  It was bye-bye Beantown.
