If you are looking for your standard "Yuk it up a bit" type comic, Matt Ward is not your guy. If you are looking for someone that balances a message with humor perfectly, then you have come to the right place.
Matt Ward doesn’t set out to offend, but he routinely stumbles into territory his devoted fans fearlessly go with him. He is an every-man and a nobody simultaneously. Matt makes each show unique with his ability to improv and is constantly writing new material. These factors bring the crowds back to see him over and over because they know they will never get the exact same set. Ward was a musician before diving into stand-up and he brings his guitar out to end his sets on occasion with well written catchy songs that keep the crowd laughing.
Ward has shared the stage with Doug Stanhope and Kyle Kinane. His background is in the music industry spending the last 15 years promoting, performing and producing live entertainment. Not often will you book a comic that knows the ins and outs of the comedy business like him.
Ward produced the show where Doug Stanhope recorded "From Across the Street" in 2009 in Wilmington, North Carolina. He also produces an annual charity cancer benefit in Wilmngton called Laughing for Life as well as producing both Port City's Top Comic, The Rocky Top Comedy Contest and The Cape Fear Comedy Festival.
