His comedic leadership in the field of enhanced joke telling techniques manages to make audiences laugh at rates that meet and often exceed the industry average.

Matt White

Matt White is a comedic tour-de-farce. After realizing he wasn't good at real jobs, his insatiable appetite for outside validation and approval led him to begin performing stand-up comedy in 2009. He has quickly become a favorite of the Atlanta comedy scene. Especially adept at finding the humor in funny things, his comedy has been described as "soft spoken but hard hitting."
