Hey. I’m Matt Ruby (firstname.lastname@example.org), a Brooklyn-based standup comedian. I also write and make funny videos (including the video comic strip Vooza). This is Sandpaper Suit, a comedy blog I started in 2006. It's a how-the-sausage-gets-made look at doing comedy and where I post videos, jokes, and podcasts. Check out MattRubyComedy.com for a bio and show calendar.
Vooza: Huffington Post calls it "the most hilarious tech startup spoof EVER." Produced, written by, and starring Matt Ruby. More episodes.
Made With Love: CNN calls it "a fictional cooking show where the couple's relationship is crumbling just like the cookies." Also featured at Huffington Post, NY Magazine, and TruTV. Starring Matt Ruby and Brooke Van Poppelen.
Amish Cop Hasidic Cop: Two NYC detectives — one's Amish and one's Hasidic — lose their partners and are forced to work together to catch a bank robber. Starring Matt Ruby and Mark Normand.
So the comedy gods gave me a texter/heckler (teckler?) the other night at HOT SOUP at Ella Lounge. She thought I was ugly. I had some fun with that. Then the rest of the crowd shouted at her to leave. Here it is on tape.
BTW, next HOT SOUP will be Wed, Dec 26 at Ella Lounge at 8:30pm. Details.
