Matt Holmes

Matt Holmes has been improvising since 1998 and is originally from Mountain Top, PA (the Poconos). At Cabrini College, he ran On the Spot, a weekly short-form show that appeared at Skidmore College's National College Comedy Festival.

He co-founded Rare Bird Show in 2003 and has been involved with many other improv projects, including teaching workshops at improv festivals, improvising an all-audio improv show in the dark called "The Bat", coaching improv groups, teaching classes through Philly Improv Theater, and performing an mp3-infused improv project that was crowned grand champion of season 2 of Troika, Philly's improv competition.

Matt performs a full improv comedy set with a complete stranger from the audience as part of his side project, m@&.
