Straight Outta Comicon is a comedy show that is now 3 tours and 1 CD release old. We started off calling it a variety show… its stand up comedy, its sketches, sometimes music. Sometimes its an unscripted show that the audience drives. At its core Straight Outta Comicon is Matt McInnis and Matt Keck as unmitigated versions of ourselves. Its two kids that found themselves in comics, cartoons and video games that grew up finding themselves in stand up comedy, without ever leaving behind how we got there.
Its been our comedy, in our voices, on our terms and we’re pretty darn proud of how this geeky little experiment has played out so far.
Who is Straight Outta Comicon?
Matt Keck has been a standup comedian since late 2009, and in that short time his videos have appeared on such programs as Comedy Centrals Tosh.0, G4TVs Web Soup, RudeTube, TruTVs Clipaholics, and Right This Minute. He is also set to film his first feature film The Genesis of Lincoln and recently released his first novel “Shift”.
Matt is clearly no stranger to the internet, providing comic book reviews to literacy website www.lipserviceink.com, a weekly addition to the standup podcast Comedy A Go-Go, and running his personal blog SpaceDynamite!!!. His forte, however, is his YouTube channel, where he has 19.7 million views and rising, amassing over 1 million more views each month. His most notable video is the viral hit Im a Snake.
Matt McInnis is a stand up comedian, actor, and producer. He’s also written a few things that have surfaced into print in the gaming industry. His performances began in the theatre. From there, he moved on to producing and writing his own works expanding into short film, voice acting, and internet venues. This lead to the founding of Mantapus Productions, which opened the door to complete freedom in his creative efforts. This path lead back to the live stage and to his most notable success, stand up comedy, where he currently performs regularly to this day.
Matt’s body of work includes numerous theatrical appearances, Smoke Break: the 115 Episode Daily Series, co-host and co-writer on the internet radio show “Get Naked With The Threes”, management of Mantapus Productions, and apperances in comedy clubs (and now cons too!) coast to coast. He can currently be heard on the bi-monthly podcast CineMother Lovers, as well as with Cheap Shots Movie Riffs. He is in preproduction on Mantapus Productions first feature length film in association with Gunn Park Entertainment the fantastical action-comedy “Happenstance: Vol 1″ expected to see a 2016 release.
In addition to his work in entertainment, Matt serves as a contributing writer to Arcane Wonders for their Origins Award nominated game Mage Wars, his work as been featured in the Dragon Age RPG and SOE’s Star Wars Galaxies. He is currently in development on his own tabletop RPG system and setting “Aether Skies”.
