Matt Ruby is a stand-up based in New York
whose blog Sandpaper Suit is one of the best resources for
discussing the ins and outs of actually writing and performing
comedy. Matt also co-hosts a monthly show at the Upright Citizens
Brigade's East Village Theatre and tours around the U.S. performing
at clubs and festivals like SXSW and Bridgetown. A few weeks ago,
Matt stopped by the Brooklyn Wrestling Team Apartment to discuss
his creativity as well as cleverness and New Yorker comedy;
hippies, shrooms and tree energy; and the entitlement of rich
people. Plus we debut a new segment that will be renamed in the
future because of its awful current name!
Plus, don't forget to come to the next Beginnings Live - our 50th Episode Spectacular - with Rachel Dratch, Jon Glaser, Leo Allen and James McNew!!!! Tuesday May 8th at 8pm at UCB East!
