“Matt Davis brought tears to our eyes with his incredible solo show!”Comedian’s Talk Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
A comedian with a borderless approach to both material and touring that has taken him all over the globe.

In addition to 20+ years of performing, Matt’s comedic short films have been featured in collectives at the Film Dayton festival, the LYAO comedy festival, and the Cincinnati Film Festival.
The show follows the evolution of world-traveled, veteran performer Matt Davis’ ideas as they have developed while performing and traveling through over 250 cities across more than 40 countries.
Stitching together a personal narrative where he is often playing the fool, he jokes about even the largely accepted norms of language, nationality, and global or regional customs. A persistent foil to his own ideas, he offers up a studied cross-examination of his experiences as he hilariously tackles the underlying goal of this show: to dismiss the equation “familiar equals good.”
