As a comedian he has performed all over LA including The Comedy Store, Flappers, and The Spotlight Comedy club to name a few and as a sketch comedian performs regularly with two of the most kick ass sketch groups in the game: Top Story!

As far as other accomplishments, Matt Harris defeated Chuck Norris’ high score on Angry Birds and invented the wheel, aeronautics and the helicopter but not necessarily in that order. Matt Harris is referred to by his mother as “a good boy” and only sleeps for one hour a day, which he does in 10 second stretches throughout an entire day. Whenever God wins a Grammy he thanks Matt Harris. Matt Harris rocks ass.
