Originally from Newfoundland and Labrador, Matt Wright is a Canadian stand-up comedian, writer, actor and director. Matt is known for his sharp, clean, observational comedy about the struggle of being a person and he can transition seamlessly between one liners, storytelling, and silliness.
Matt has appeared on two Just for Laughs Galas (Laverne Cox 2017 and Ken Jeong 2018), This Hour Has 22 Minutes (where he was a staff writer for three seasons), CBC’s The Debaters,
the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and the Halifax Comedy Festival.
"Matt Wright is definitely one of my favourites to watch these days. What I like about him is that he’s perfect for a festival: he can go into a room and make everybody laugh from age 19 to 90.
Everybody loves him.”
