On today's show we talk with writer and actor Matt Oberg. With a background in theater, Matt moved to New York to pursue acting professionally and eventually made his way into the comedy world through the People's Improv Theater. He's had parts in many shows including 30 Rock and Delocated, and had major roles in two Onion productions, as the anchor in Sports Dome and as one of the many Tucker Hopes on IFC's ONN. He also voiced Mark Lily, the main character on the incredible cartoon Ugly Americans. A few weeks ago Matt came over to the Manhattan Wrestling Team apartment and discussed his impending move to LA, faking it at your day job and the time he was Al Pacino's assistant's assistant.
