Comedian, Podcast Host
Matt Rogers is a NYC based actor, writer, comedian and director. Originally from Long Island, NY, Matt was raised by a father who loved Jimmy Buffett and a mother who loved Barbra Streisand. This caused him to become the person he is today: a crazy gay pirate who thinks it’s 1985. Matt is the artistic director of musical sketch comedy group Pop Roulette (Comedy Central Comics to Watch 2015), an actor on UCB Maude Night with the team Choir, a member of the popular sketch group Chess Club Comedy, and a proud director and performer with Story Pirates, among others. Matt was honored individually as a Comic to Watch (Sketch/Characters) in the 2016 New York Comedy Festival and most recently he was one of the New Faces at Just For Laughs Montreal 2017. Matt is currently the co-host of the popular podcast “Las Culturistas.” He was recently in the digital series BAGDAD, FLORIDA, written and directed by Matt Fifer, and can next be seen in the upcoming Netflix feature THE AFTER PARTY, dir. Ian Edelman and starring Teyana Taylor, Blair Underwood, French Montana, and Wiz Khalifa.
