London born Matt Kirshen's precision wit has earned him an impressive

Craig Ferguson, Paul Provenza’s Green Room, and as a finalist on NBC's
Last Comic Standing has earned him a whole new host of fans in the
United States and a surprising number of other countries worldwide.
He has also recorded a half-hour special for the World Stands Up, Comedy
Central, and has acclaimed festival appearances at Montreal, Edinburgh,
Kilkenny, Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds, Bermuda, and Amsterdam.
His debut CD, "I Guess We'll Never Know" was named in Punchline

experience, and a wealth of smart, funny and relatable material, making
him a firm favorite with college audiences. While it's his prime-time
NBC appearances that most American comedy fans will recognize him from,
they are often surprised at the breadth and scope of his material,
described by one reviewer as "intelligent, but with the emphasis firmly
on the funny"
