Rude. Honest. Funny. Smart. NYC comedian/writer Matt Ruby loves to dive deep on comedy, tech, politics, art, spirituality, pop culture, and more. If you enjoy nuanced takes, don't get offended easily, & hate BS, Matt's your guy.
I'm a standup comedian from New York City. I'm a comic because I like to tell the truth and I realized being funny is the best way to do it.
I've been seen on Laughs on FOX, MTV's Girl Code, and The Comedy Show Show on NBC/Seeso. My album Hot Flashes is in regular rotation on Sirius and was a top 10 album at iTunes. I've also been featured on CNN.com, The New York Times, The Huffington Post, New York magazine, Time Out NY, Splitsider, and more. I'm a regular at the legendary Comedy Cellar and perform all over New York City as well as the rest of the country. I've also performed around the world (England, France, Holland, Israel, Canada, etc.) and have appeared at festivals including SXSW, Bridgetown, NY Comedy Festival, SF Comedy Contest, Boston Comedy Festival, and the New Orleans Comedy and Arts Festival.
I'm also the creator of Vooza, a video comic strip about the tech world (called the "The Spinal Tap of startups" by Mashable). And I co-produce Hot Soup, one of NYC’s longest running independently produced comedy shows. I’m also the creator and co-host of the annual Schtick or Treat show.
