Who Is Matt Graham?


(To the tune of the theme from Shaft:) Who’s the comedian Louis C.K. and Janeane Garofalo thought would be famous in Boston in the 80s? (Graham!) Yes, Matt Graham. Who is the man that’s been paying his rent with Scrabble winnings? (Graham!) Who’s the cat that played NCAA ball when he was 40 years old? (Graham!) He’s a complicated man, but no one understands him but Marc Maron. (Matt Graham!) Okay, enough theme song. If you’ve never heard of Matt Graham, here’s a fascinating short profile on the comedian, who Colin Quinn describes as being “like a high school Indiana point guard that drives you nuts, because he’s got all that talent, but he almost deliberately misses easy jumpers because he’s bored by the game.” Graham was also on WTF a few weeks back and according to the comments, it was a pretty intense interview, so check that out if your interest has been piqued.
