Matt Bellassai is a touring comedian, internet personality, self-appointed Life Critic, and now…semi-esteemed author. Celebrate the release of Everything is Awful: And Other Observations with a one-of-a-kind, stage show full of anger, judgement, and fully-clothed-full-frontal-nudity as Matt rants about life, liberty and the pursuit of unhappiness. Every ticket comes with a signed copy of his new book and an evening of irreversible, potentially-scarring memories that will keep your therapist busy.
Matt went to Northwestern University where he ran for student body president and f*cking lost. He graduated in 2012 with a degree in journalism and approximately one full assload of student debt.
In 2012, Matt joined BuzzFeed as a comedy writer and was Employee of the Month for 39 straight months. In 2015, he co-created, wrote and produced the web series “Whine About It,” a weekly video series where he got drunk alone and violated numerous Human Resources bylaws.
In January 2016, Matt was awarded the first ever People’s Choice Award for Favorite Social Media Star. Which is also not a joke. He has an actual People’s Choice Award in his apartment right now. And yes, he’s tried to masturbate with it.
After three and half years with BuzzFeed, Matt left to pursue solo projects in early 2016. He has since launched a new weekly web series, “To Be Honest,” and a stand-up comedy tour. He is currently working on a forthcoming scripted web series, book, television series and podcast. He is also working on his tan.
