Move over Shuckey Duckey, there is a new catchphase-based urban racial humorist in town. With catchphrases like “say what?”, “women be trippin’” and “they don’t think it be like it is, but it do”, Matt Lieb has taken the San Francisco Bay Area comedy scene by storm. He has performed with the likes of Brent Weinbach, Moshe Kasher, and W. Kamau Bell. This year will mark Matt Lieb’s 5th year performing at SF Sketchfest.
Matt Lieb is a comedian, writer, actor and street musician/Bone Thugs-N-Harmony cover band. He was named “one of my all-time favorite Bay Area performers” by the award-winning SF blog Courting Comedy and described as “extremely talented, charmingly dark and genuinely pleasant.” He won 2nd place at the 2004 KZSC Comedy Competition, but the guy who won 1st place no longer does comedy so Matt basically won 1st place. He also won 1st place at the 2013 Rooster-T-Feathers Comedy Competition, which was very validating for him. Matt Lieb has opened for many legendary performers including W. Kamau Bell, Gilbert Gottfried, Jeff Ross, Rory Scovel, Ryan Papazian and 3rd Eye Blind. He is also Glenn Danzig’s neighbor and Emmy-winner Camryn Manheim is a family friend. He writes for Filmdrunk and has written for Yahoo!’s Broken News Daily
