Matt Keenan is a comedian from the small town of Hampton, NB, now living in the big city of Toronto, ON.
On only his 7th time on stage, he took 3rd place in the CBC Radio HubCap Comedy Competition, competing against amateurs and seasoned vets from across The Maritimes. Soon after, he claimed 1st place in James Mullinger’s Comedy Boot Camp, earning him the title of New Brunswick's funniest. With club and corporate bookings, appearances at the High Tide Comedy Festival and Comedian of the North, he is quickly becoming one of the most sought after comedians on the East Coast. Whether it’s clean or dirty, Matt finds a way of making dark topics silly with his dry, candid manner, hilarious observations and masterful misdirection. He has jokes for everyone and is not to be missed.
“The face of an Angel and the mouth of a Drunk Uncle.” — Nikki Payne
"Matt sums up all that is great about Canadian comedy. Relatively new but an absolute master of the craft and his super fast progression from open spot to paid performer is testament to that. He’s an innovator. A shrewd operator. And a very clever person. He’s also funny as hell. Pay to see him live. And buy his comedy album which won’t leave my CD player (I’m old school) for weeks if not months. Kudos to this uniquely talented stand up comedian." — James Mullinger
"Funny, funny fellow. Championship calibre microphone assassin. Holds babies high off of the ground once in a while." — Jonathan Nesbitt
