About Matt Mayer

I am a comedy creator for TV, web, and stage as a director, a producer, a writer, and an actor.

I currently work for Funny Or Die, heading up their video team in NYC.

My recent work includes directing and editing the web series Tawk, for Astronauts Wanted, hosted by rapper Awkwafina. I was a field producer/director, editor, and writer for the TV show Take Me To Your Mother.

I perform weekly at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC on their long-form improv show Harold Night. I am a member of sketch comedy group Whale Thief, the team responsible for UCBNY's Sketch Cram, and the 24-hour-feature-film-from-scratch project Movie Cram, which you can read about in the NY Times.

Quite a bit of my video production experience has been for the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre’s UCBcomedy.com, where at the height of my participation I was involved in nearly 40 productions in a twelve-month period. I also directed videos and shows independently for great comedians like Abbi Jacobson (Broad City) and Eliot Glazer.
