Special Event: Matt Friend

Matthew Friend is an old soul living inside a 24-year-old comedian/actor/impressionist's body. Matthew graduated from NYU’s Gallatin School in 2020, but his love of comedy and entertainment was sparked when he was four years old. He had watched Austin Powers (yes, as a four-year-old) and started mimicking the characters’ voices—and the rest was history. To date, Matthew has over a million followers on TikTok, Snap, Instagram, Facebook, and across all socials. He has appeared on The Howard Stern Show, MSNBC, the Today Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, NBC’s New York Live TV, Good Day LA, Good Day NY, Good Morning Washington, and WGN. In 2019, Matthew won Kenan Thompson’s Ultimate Comedy Experience at Carolines on Broadway. Matthew performs at corporate events and does stand-up comedy throughout the country. Matthew’s repertoire includes more than 250 impressions ranging from Rami Malek to Timothee Chalamet. His favorite impression at the moment is Jennifer Coolidge. Matt headlined a sold out crowd at Carolines on Broadway as part of Carolines' Breakout Artist Series. Matt has voiced two characters for The Simpsons and is currently in the process of recording original characters for Family Guy. Matt headlined at The Stand Comedy Club as part of the 2022 New York Comedy Festival. Matt is also a Snap Star, one of the fastest rising creators on Snapchat.
