Comedy News: Matt McClowry Recording Comedy Album at Comedy Underground
Following the huge success the Comedy Underground had with last month’s comedy album recording of Felicia Michaels, we have partnered with Uproar for a comedy album recording with Matt McClowry at the Seattle Comedy Underground on April 10-12, 2014.
There's no one quite like Matt McClowry. An awkward, gentle soul trapped in a hulking physique, Matt has been surprising audiences for nearly a decade, putting a sharp edge to universal topics like family, relationships, and modern life. Born and raised outside of Detroit, Michigan, Matt McClowry began his pursuit of a stand up career in 2004 by signing up for a local open-mike night, and his Comedy has taken off from there. Over the past 10 years, he has built up both his confidence and writing skills and he now enjoys a reputation as one of the strongest acts in the Midwest.
Part of what gives Matt's comedy a truly unique edge is the fact that he is a high-functioning individual with Aspergers Syndrome. Matt does not fit the stereotypical picture of someone with Aspergers and fans often question him on that point. He finds himself to be much more comfortable on stage than off stage. One common symptom of Aspergers Syndrome is not recognizing humor, and despite being a professional Comedian McClowry is not immune to struggling with that. He has found ways to push past this obstacle and uses Aspergers to influence his career in a positive way.
There have been many highlights in Matt's career so far. He has performed at the Boston Comedy Festival, Gilda's LaughFest, The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, and The Bridgetown Comedy Festival. He was a winner at The World Series of Comedy, he has performed at the Oddball Comedy Festival, opened for Whitney Cummings and Marc Maron, and has appeared with Bill Burr at Flappers Comedy Club in Los Angeles. He has been seen on Comcast Television and been heard on Sirius XM Radio. Matt is looking forward to recording his first comedy album for Uproar Comedy and continuing to broaden his exposure. Dry and dark like good Merlot, Matt's comedy is refreshingly honest and brutally funny.
