From sarcastic one-liners to well-placed puns, from dead-on impressions of New York City pimps, nine-year-old spelling bee contestants and Nancy Grace, to ideas for game shows only he would like, Matt Champagne's frantic energy and clever comic mind combine witty wordplay with unabashed goofiness. You'll laugh against your will.
He's performed at the Ontario, Irvine, Hollywood and Denver Improvs, Laugh Factory, World Famous Comedy Store, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Acme Comedy Theatre, Ice House, Comedy Union, Rooster T. Feathers, San Francisco Punchline, and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival. He's appeared with national headliners like Nick Swardson, Christopher Titus, Jon Reep, Tom Rhodes. Jamie Kennedy and Natasha Leggero.
Matt's also made his living acting in various TV shows, movies and commercials: TV stuff like "Get Shorty," "Providence," "Will and Grace," "Working," "The Tick," "Angel," "Monk," "CSI Miami," "NCIS," "Boston Legal," "The Ghost Whisperer," "'Til Death," "Numbers," "Retired at 35," and "Miss Match" with Alicia Silverstone who--Matt has convinced himself--had a crush on him; movie stuff like "The Continued Adventures of Reptile Man," "The Pentagon Wars" (almost typed "Pentagon Warts"), "The Specials," "For Christ’s Sake," and "Crime and Punishment in Suburbia." He played Piper Perabo’s husband in the Diane Keaton film "Because I Said So," something for which THEY paid HIM. His commercial work includes ads for Home Depot, McDonald’s, Jack-in-the Box, IHOP, PODS, Dell Computer, Sprint, IMAX, AT&T, IBM, Chrysler and Progressive Insurance.
Matt once saw Carl Weathers eat quiche.
