Matt Koff is a comedian, recovering improviser, and Emmy-award winning writer for his work on The Daily Show. As one of the first Magnet students, Matt brings his comedy back to the theater for a stand-up comedy series. “Matt Koff & Friend” features a half hour of comedy from Koff himself, as well as another half hour from a comedian of his choice.
How long have you been performing stand-up comedy?
For about 7 years now. I had been doing sketch and improv for about 5 years prior to that. I’m old. Older than the Tennessee Valley herself, some might say.
How would you compare the NYC stand-up scene from when you first started to now?
Can you tell us about a time that you “bombed” on stage?
When did you start taking classes at Magnet Theater? Did you learn anything from the classes that you still use in your work today?
What does stand-up comedy bring to you that improv does not?
Who would be your ideal guest to perform the 2nd half hour on Matt Koff & Friend?
Adam Wade. And I was lucky enough to get him!
How do you like performing stand-up in an improv theater setting?
I like it a lot. The audiences are really smart, and there are very few drunk bachelorette parties in the audience who interrupt my set and laugh at the wrong parts of the joke. Quiet, ladies! “So I just had arm surgery” is not a punchline!
Come see Matt Koff & Friend Monday September 18th at 9pm with special guest Adam Wade!
Due to Hurricane Sandy, The Magnet Training Center will be CLOSED on Monday October 29th, 2012. All scheduled classes for Monday, October 29th are CANCELLED. There will also be no shows at the theater tonight. Please stay safe and obey storm warnings! We’ll see you after all this crazy Sandy business settles.
