"Rehash with Matt O'Brien"

Toronto comedian Matt O’Brien’s (Comedy Now!, MuchMusic’s Video On Trial etc) podcast Rehash is recorded with the intention of discussing the guest comedian’s Twitter presence and Twitter in general. The idea is that both podcasts and Twitter are two flourishing non-traditional comedy mediums so let’s get some interaction going between the two. - Toronto is Awesome

"Funny is a lifestyle"

It was Leap Day, 2012 and I celebrated it in the funniest thinkable fashion – by spending the evening at Yuk Yuk’s Toronto’s Showcase Show, featuring some of the top comics in the city.

One of those comedians was Matt O’Brien who happens to be one of the nicest, most ambitious, not to mention funniest comics on the circuit.

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Matt in the Yuk Yuk’s greenroom before the show to discuss his upcoming Comedy Now! special for Comedy Network, life on the road, dating, and Twitter. - Quip Magazine

"TV & sitcom DVDs - Matt O'Brien - Comedy Now! April 5th 2012 10 p.m. - The Comedy Network"

Matt O’Brien is an excellent comic. After watching his Comedy Now episode April 5th at 10 on The Comedy Network you are going to make a point of catching him live next time he is in town. O’Brien does not have a stale or hack bit at any point in time during his performance, his take on things is very fresh, and he usually segues elegantly from one bit to the other.

The comic opens with a routine about city living that goes to one about gay guys. Though he does the stereotypical gay guy, his observations are nothing you’ve heard before but that come to think of it….

There is also a too short bit about the morning after Halloween, going to the pharmacy for Plan B, getting a slice from a somewhat weird server, and a couple of short bits about his dad.

What makes Matt O’Brien stand out from the crowd is that he sometimes acts out scenes or characters. Oddly enough, his one weak point is sometimes he does not know when or where to stop doing that. -


Still working on that hot first release.
