Broadcast Date October 2, 2019
I so loved getting the chance to finally connect with today’s guest – Newfoundland and Labrador’s own Matt Wright – he’s a writer, an actor, a director and topping the resume of today stand up comedian – and not just because he’s appeared on everything from the Just For Laughs Festival stage, the Ha!ifax Comedy Fest and CBC’s The Debaters but most especially since his brand new album EXISTING IS EXHAUSTING is set for release October 3rd. And lucky for us we’ve got some hilarious clips to share on this show – plus we’ll chat with Mr.Wright about how it all came together, all about his process for crafting the comedy – from his inspiration to delivery. We’ll also talk about his time on the 22 MINUTES team and all the incredibly funny folks that hail from his homeland. There’s a fun round of First Things First, some serious INsights IN 10 and if you’re anything like me you’ll be laughing up a storm – so without further ado here’s my telephone conversation with the one and only Matt Wright!

For the record… we’re pretty sure (although not 100%) Jennifer Lopez is not a regular listener of the show and while we’ve looked online there appears to be no company that claims “ownership” of the Giant Cookie ice cream sandwich… although there are plenty of recipes so that you can make your own – just look!
