Pedestrian.tv describes Matt Stewart as “one of the most purely funny comedians in Melbourne, Matt Stewart’s trade- mark bone-dry delivery belies a brain for comedy with few rivals.” Matt is set to traverse the Australian comedy festival circuit over the next few months taking his rollicking funny new show ‘Bone Dry’ to Perth Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe, Brisbane Comedy Festival, plus Melbourne International Comedy Festival over the ensuing months.
One of Australia’s sharpest comedians, Matt is well known for his wry wit as well as being a writer, actor and director, and has travelled the UK with his craft. He has been writing, directing and creating comedy since 2009. Starting his career as a community TV and radio presenter, he went on to be a founding member of the Stupid Old Man sketch group and a Company Director of comedy production house Stupid Old Studios. In his role as director, Matt Stewart works alongside some of the country’s biggest names in comedy writing and directing content for stage and screen. In 2017, he began popping up on screen in shows like Ronny Chieng: International Student, Comedy Up Late and Sammy J’s Democratic Party.
In 2013 he started performing stand up comedy, quickly hitting his stride and winning Australia’s largest open mic stand-up comedy competition, RAW Comedy, in 2014. In 2017 he completed sell out runs at Melbourne Fringe, Perth Fringe World and Melbourne International Comedy Festival with his debut solo stand up show Pretty Dry. He continued this success in 2018 with his show Dry Ginger Male with sell out shows at Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe, Brisbane Comedy Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Matt also co-hosts the popular Planet Broadcasting podcast, Do Go On which has enjoyed mil- lions of downloads from fans across the globe.
