Matthew Broussard
Matthew Broussard
Born in New Jersey, raised in Atlanta, and, in 2012, winner of Houston's Funniest Person, Matthew Broussard isn't sure where he's from. Before doing stand up, he earned a degree in Applied Math from Rice University and got fired from being a financial analyst. His comedy relies on his killer timing, subtle wit, and devilish good looks. Also, he's not very witty and his timing could use some work. When he's not drawing puns for his webcomic, mondaypunday.com, he enjoys swimming, using semicolons pretentiously, and resembling a villain from an 80s movie.

Despite earning a coveted spot on Comedy Central's Adam DeVine's House Party after only doing stand-up for 18 months, and booking a principle role in the comedy film Intramural, the first feature film he's ever auditioned for - his Cajun father and Jewish mother still hope he gets an MBA. TV Credits include: Adam Devine's House Party, Last Call With Carson Daly, The League, and The Mindy Project, and MTV's Sex Tips For Girls. Matthew can currently be seen in MTV2's Guy Code and will soon be seen on MTV2's Not Necessarily News.
