Stand-up comedy has been a dream for Matt his entire life. Growing up in New York City, he started performing shows for family and friends at the age of 3, but it wasn’t until graduating college at George Mason University with a Degree in Finance, that Matt finally took the plunge as a full time Stand-Up Comedian.

Over his 36 year career he has performed stand-up comedy over 7,000 times in 45 states and 7 countries. Matt has also performed at over 1,000 corporate and private events. He has an amazing ability to work any crowd, anywhere, any venue.

In addition to being a world renown comedy coach, Matt Kazam is THE expert on the science of humor. Matt’s expertise lies in teaching corporate leaders and sales teams, in every industry, how to develop lighthearted communication skills, transform company culture, and make punch lines improve bottom lines.

Matt has partnered with the Harvard Public Health Review to launch his web series The Humor Scientist. Empowering the audience with the strategies, tools and insights into how to use humor with intention to thrive in both our personal and professional lives.

At the age of 10 Matt saw his first comedy show in Las Vegas at the legendary Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. He knew right then that was what he wanted to do with his life.

In 2014 Matt’s boyhood dream was realized and amazingly at the same iconic property where the dream was born, the Riviera. Matt’s one man comedy show, “40 Is Not The New 20,” was an instant success. Becoming a Las Vegas “must see” show month after month. He was the last headliner to perform at the Riviera that saw the likes of Frank Sinatra and Elvis rise to fame.
