About Matt Mayer

I am a comedy creator for TV, web, and stage as a director, editor (on the roster for the local 700), writer, and producer.

I worked for Funny Or Die, for three years, Directing, Writing, and Editing in NYC and LA. I made over 200 videos in my time there, including web sketches, branded content, and TV interstitials for IFC. Proud highlights include:

Recent non-Funny Or Die work includes:

  • writing and directing a video for pro-immigrant nonprofit Define American

  • directing web commercials for Zocdoc (one, two, three)

  • segment producing for season 2 of TBS’s Drop The Mic

  • editing for Jimmy Carr’s new American panel-style show for Netflix titled The Fix, with DL Hughley and Katherine Ryan

  • writing and production on Whale Thief’s pilot presentation for TruTV, How To Human

  • directing and editing the web series TAWK, starring Awkafina

  • field producing and editing for the TV show Take Me To Your Mother, starring Andrea Rosen

I also perform comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. I performed on their weekly improv show Harold Night for six years. I am a member of sketch comedy group Whale Thief, the team responsible for UCBNY's Sketch Cram, and the 24-hour-feature-film-from-scratch project Movie Cram, which you can read about in the NY Times.

I also made videos for the UCB Theatre and directed videos and shows independently for great comedians like Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer, and Eliot Glazer.
