NY-based comedian Matteo Lane is on the podcast!
You may know Matteo from MTV’s Guy Code and Girl Code. He was also included on Just For Laughs’ New Faces in 2014, a pivotal career moment which we discuss in the episode.
Matteo has one of the most interesting backstories in comedy; he’s worked as a commercial illustrator and studied as an opera singer in Italy before trying his hand at comedy.
We talk about how he landed in comedy, bringing a gay comedic viewpoint to a larger audience, his late/hate relationship with Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and a lot more.
Mattteo headlines the final Brunch Club of the season, May 20-21 at Montreal’s Comedyworks. For tickets and more info visit http://brunchclubmtl.com/.
