Matt Besser, the actor, comedian, director, producer and writer who helped found the Upright Citizen’s Brigade is dropping a new hour special next month- it’s a stand-up special- and the trailer for that new special is here!
Comedy Dynamics has announced they have produced and will be distributing Matt Besser: Pot Humor, on the Comedy Dynamics network via Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, Dish, DirecTV, Spectrum and more starting October 29, 2019.
What’s special about this one hour, one-man show, is that it was was filmed at the NW Cannabis Club in Portland, Oregon and was directed by Brian Volk-Weiss and produced by Cisco Henson for Comedy Dynamics. And you guessed it, the crowd was wasted.
“It was a pleasure to perform for a fully baked audience, and even more of a pleasure to get baked with them. I hope our editing style for the special will have our home audience tripping out as well,” said Matt Besser.
“Filming at a cannabis club was definitely a new experience for us at Comedy Dynamics, but we soon found out that cannabis and laughter are a match made in heaven. It’s been a pleasure to work with Matt on this unique and hilarious one man show,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
In addition to founding one of the most influential comedy career gateways, Matt starred in the Comedy Central Upright Citizens Brigade sketch comedy series alongside Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh, while also appearing in films such as Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Drillbit Taylor, Year One, Bad Teacher, and more. He has also appeared in shows such as Fresh Off The Boat, Modern Family, Drunk History, Reno 911, Parks and Recreation and more. Matt also hosts a weekly podcast named improv4humans that can be heard on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Earwolf and more.
