Undoubtedly the highlight of this year's Bris Funny Fest program is Matt Okine. The Brisbane boy is coming back home for two sets back- to-back at Heya Bar in the smallest venue he's played in Brisbane for a long time.

With his new show The Other Guy set to start on Stan on August 16th, and a residency at the prestigious Soho Theatre in London being his next show after these ones, things are looking good for Matt, which accentuates how much of a coup this booking really is. The Other Guy was picked up after his stand up set of the same name won the prestigious Director's Choice Award at the 2015 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

For those who've been living under a rock and don't know who Matt is, you may know him as one half of Triple J's Matt and Alex. You may know him as the winner of the 2015 ARIA Award for Best Comedy Release for Matt Okine; Live at the Enmore Theatre. Perhaps for his nomination for Best Comedy Performer at the 2015 Helpmann Awards, or his nomination for Best International Show at the 2015 NZ International Comedy Festival have come to your attention.



He performs sell out national tours of his live shows year in, year out and supports international acts such as Dave Chappelle and Chelsea Handler, as well as appearing regularly in several TV shows including ABC TV's It's a Date and Dirty Laundry Live and SBS's Legally Brown.

With one show already sold out and a handful of tickets remaining for the second, get your in while you still can!
