Matt Graham's "This Too Shall Suck"
Comedian Matt Graham is the writer and performer of "This Too Shall Suck" an autobiographical one-hour-show, which premiered in NYC in February 2012 Graham made his professional debut in the 80's on the Boston Comedy Circuit with Louis CK, David Cross, and Jeaneane Garofalo. His signature "non-stand up stand-up" earned him four appearances on The Conan O'Brien Show, which he eventually wrote for, a writing gig with Saturday Night Live, and national recognition as a comic. During a hiatus from stand up, Graham took up professional scrabble, and at age 31, placed second in the 1997 World Scrabble Championships. He was a subject in The New York Times bestseller "Word Freak", and the Sundance documentary film, "Word Wars." Graham was also featured on NBC News (for his ability to play Scrabble blindfolded), Ripley's Believe It or Not, and the N.Y. Times Sunday Magazine. He has also recorded a riveting, two-part interview on WTF with Marc Maron, as well as a recent, long profile about him in The New Yorker.
