4x Winner of the New Zealand Comedy Guild Award – Matt Stellingwerf, is a fast rising star on the international comedy scene. Since breaking in as a Best Newcomer Nominee at the 2014 New Zealand International Comedy Festival he has since toured extensively, performing throughout NZ, Australia, the USA & the United Kingdom.
A trained criminologist and an award-winning bar fly, Matt Stellingwerf is a man of contradictions. He expertly brings these elements together on stage with his typical low-key style and confidence, finding the humour in topics as diverse as love, mental illness, sex, drugs, and this crazy interview he once conducted with a serial killer on Death Row!
Matt now brings a worldview inspired by alcoholic shearing gangs, bizarre Dutch relatives, and criminological theory to the stage and attempts to answer some of life’s enduring mysteries. So come along, grab a brew and have a laugh!
