2012 Raw Comedy Quest semi-finalist, Matt Stellingwerf is a fast rising star on the New Zealand comedy scene, and highly regarded by his peers. Matt has won four NZ Comedy Guild Awards, been nominated for several others, and was nominated as Best Newcomer at the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival.

Matt is a 2015 Billy T Nominee.

Hamilton-born and Wanganui-raised farmer’s son and trained criminologist, an award-winning bar fly…and genuinely lovely guy, Matt Stellingwerf is a man of contradictions.

He expertly brings these contradictions to the stage with his typical low-key style and confidence, finding the humour in topics as diverse as love, mental illness, sex, drugs, and this crazy interview he once conducted with a serial killer on Death Row!

Matt now brings a worldview inspired by alcoholic shearing gangs, bizarre Dutch relatives, and criminological theory to the stage and attempts to answer some of life’s enduring mysteries. So come along, grab a brew, have a laugh and remember…lower expectations make it better for everyone!

On television you may have seen him on Maori TV’s Crack Up, and getting shot with a crossbow in a strip club on TV ONE’s Coverband.

Our host for this one is Shay Horay aka Guinness World Record Holder and comedy daredevil “The Famous Rubberband Boy”.

With support coming from Jack Ansett who won the SI Raw comp earlier this year, and SI Raw runner up Cameron McLeod.
